Who am I?
Welcome to Bucket List Fanatic, my "travel/life/entrepreneurship bucket list blog" (I should really come up with a better name for that..)
Anyways, my name is Jon Pedersen, and I'm originally from Lillestrøm, Norway — but have been living the last few years in Australia, South Korea and Hong Kong. Today, I'm a passionate entrepreneur, digital nomad and bucket list guru, who takes absolutely nothing for granted and live every day as it would have been the last (I have even have a YOLO tattoo.. Stupid some might say.. I say: "Why not" — and it is meaningful to me). See my 1000+ bucket list here.
Things wasn't always like this though. In fact, when I was younger I used to be too careless and lived a rather dull life with no direction and no clear goals. That was until I was faced with a very serious incident which made me revalue my life. Since then I've been a avid bucketlisteer and traveled extensively while doing the things I want to do, and working with the things I want to work with. This has led to unique experiences from all around the world, and there's many more to come.
Why Have I Created This Blog?
I believe I have valuable information to share, that may inspire, motivate and empower readers out there. I especially have a goal here to empower you all to be able to take more action and control of your life — to become a better you!
I also seek to encourage you all to create a bucket list — which has done so much to create a more meaningful and fun life to me. That is why I am sharing my huge bucket list, and my travels and experiences associated with it. Also, for me personally, making my bucket list public also ensures that I stay accountable to my goals and it is as a great social component in that it engages family and friends who may join or help with certain items, and equally I set out to help others on their goals.
So, we'll see how this goes. I am patting myself on the shoulder for having started this website at least. Hopefully, this blog can dynamically blossom into something beautiful with an engaging and helpful community.
From September I will begin to blog on a continuous basis with two posts each week.
So there you go, welcome to my blog project and stay tuned!
Got any comments/ideas/suggestions for the layout or the design? Then by all means do not hesitate to let me know, I'm only in the early beginning of this project and still got heaps to learn and improve upon!
