Help inspire others to live their dreams

We’re dedicated to inspiring the human spirit, and to enabling people to venture into the unknown and turn their dreams into reality. No matter what you call it — the hero’s journey, wanderlust, walkabout, vision quest, coming-of-age ritual, a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, spiritual awakening, the travel bug, voyage into the unknown, or self-transcendence — this is our exploration of life. Whether your journey is to be a world traveler, cupcake baker or street sweeper, as long as you do it with passion, we’d love to share your story with our fans.

We’re dedicated to sharing stories because I deeply believe we are all on this journey through life together. Learn why here.

There are 4 types of guest posts:

  • Sharing of a journey: A story about someone else’s journey that personally inspired you.
  • Before the journey: Most authors/adventurers agree that before they even begin their journey, writing a story helps them focus on their purpose and goals, including a theme such as charity, journalism, photography, best hamburger, etc. So, we welcome stories about your mental/physical/spiritual preparations.
  • During the journey: Send us updates from the road. This is our most popular post. We’ve had thousands of submissions.
  • After the journey: Likewise, stories written at the end of the journey also helps authors/adventurers ponder the lessons they learned and how their journey may fit into the bigger picture of their life and those whose paths they crossed. “I can say if it weren’t for writing my book, a lot would have been lost in space and time.” ~ Scott
