My New Experiment
When I started this blog in July, I never expected people to actually read it. I saw it as a journal of sorts. Not that I was against anyone reading it, I just never thought people would want to read about my views on biking. I must admit that I'm not only surprised but very happy to see folks from around the United States and the rest of the world tapping into my "journal".
My excitement comes from the adventurer in me. You see, before moving to Madison, my husband and I spent many years traveling and living around the world. For the past 8 years this has diminished due to work commitments, having a "furry child" and house projects.
By seeing the places my readers are from (Russia, Germany, UAE, Australia etc.), my interest for travel has been sparked once again--not that it ever truly died. This got me thinking--always a dangerous thing. What would happen if I made connections with some or many of my readers and spent time traveling around the world, exploring where they live by bike, and then write about it in my blog?
I've always had a "bucket list" of places I've wanted to go but this could open up a whole new world. Better yet, the travel would be through the eyes of a cyclist. So here's my request from you reader...if you are at all interested in connecting with me for this possible adventure, please e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org), facebook me at Kierstin Kloeckner or leave a message on my blog and we'll start this process. On my end, my husband and I are often times open to having cyclists visit us here in Madison (one of the best bike cities in the U.S.). If this isn't up your alley but you know someone that might be interested, please feel free to pass this on. Let the two wheeled adventure begin!
