Whew. It has been a month, people. It. Has. Been. A. Month.
Sadly, I haven’t been hitting the trails as much as I usually do. Or writing on here, for that matter. Instead, I’ve been spending that time building out a brand new website and rebranding for my network of writers here in Fort Collins. What was once The Scoop Blog Network is now officially Experience Fort Collins!
We’re still writing and still keeping you all updated on the awesome things to do in Northern Colorado, but now with a more recognizable name, a snazzy new look, and a couple of other things – like our Experience Fort Collins podcast.
I’ve had some good thinking time on the trails over the last year. It has been the place where I can both clear my head from the stresses of work, but also open my mind to creative possibilities. It’s because of trail thinking that my network is taking on a new mission – to help people live bucket list lives right here in our own community.
Fresh Air Fort Collins innately does that already. I think a lot of our outdoor opportunities are bucket list worthy! But it’s because of this site that this mentality is expanding into food, family-life, gardening, arts and entertainment, history, and cannabis – all of the things we write about.
In this podcast I’ll be drinking a beer and kicking back for some casual conversation with people making their mark in our community, all while making sure we cover three foundations – what’s the best, what’s the worst, and what is a bucket list experience in Fort Collins from their perspective. If you’re doing something related to the outdoors in our community and want to share that, drop me a line and we’ll grab a drink! I’d love to share stories from outfitters, fishing guides, rafting guides, or some of you crazy ass backcountry skiers.
Not only that, we’re getting exceptionally close to launching Choose Your Own Fort Collins (end of April, if things go as planned. IT HAS TAKEN FOREVER TO DO THIS). This is the new part of our network that will get people out to experience the things we write about. So all of you people out there who’ve been asking how to come hiking with me? This is it!
Make sure you’re signed up for the Choose Your Own newsletter, or you aren’t going to get details on much. We’re keeping our adventures mysterious, because that’s the fun part. So if you’re a control freak, this probably isn’t for you. If you enjoy adventure and surprises? Then it’s totally your thing! By signing up for the newsletter, you’ll get an exclusive invite to our launch party that explains everything about this new adventure series.
But, this is why things have been quiet around these parts. It’s not due to slacking off, that’s for sure! But I’m excited to get back to sharing trail stories (like how I had to bail on a winter camping trip last weekend because the temps dipped to low for my gear capabilities) and to Experience Fort Collins to the fullest with you all too. CHEERS to new adventures and living bucket list lives!!
