If you could have anything you wanted, anything at all, what would you wish for?
Make that wish.
Did you make it yet?
Anything at all you want… no limits…
Time’s up! What did you wish for? I’d love to know!
Star light, star bright,
First star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight!
This rhyme used to be one of my favourites when I was growing up, and man, I made a lotta wishes…
Today I want to talk about this blog’s mission and vision. Most of last week was spent in deep contemplation of this issue ( the lingering smell in the kitchen of burnt rice and chicken give a strong testimony to that, oops). Then I spent the weekend thinking some more…and some more…and some more…
Finally, I decided to stop over-thinking it and just put these ideas out here, so here goes!
Blog Mission Statement
What is a blog mission statement in the first place?
It is a statement of the purpose of a blog.
It clarifies who the blog is meant for, what it’s meant for, what you hope to achieve with blogging. Mission statements evolve as life changes and might need constant re-examination and updating. (Incidentally, did you ever write yourself a personal mission statement?? DO! It’s worth the invested time, trust me.)
As you can imagine, writing a blog mission statement is a great way to equip you with clarity, a sense of purpose and help to keep your integrity, especially as your blog grows and more opportunities open up to you.
The ‘Nsoromma’ Project… I started this blog because I kinda ‘rediscovered’ myself and I wanted to use blogging as a tool to chart my journey towards a worry-free life of adventure and meaning, to discover similar-minded people and to provide inspiration for other worrywarts like me to stop worrying and start living.
My personal mission statement and life purpose is consequently intimately linked with my blog mission; my blog is part of the expression of my life purpose, as I aim to grow and to contribute.
My blog mission statement…
TNP aims to inspire in you an attitude which encourages you to see more meaning, adventure and beauty in your life journey. The project provides inspirational resources in the form of provocative personal life notes and stories to get you reflecting and thankful as I chronicle my life; and tips and online resources (and occasional tutorials and recipes) to add more spice, beauty and creativity to your life.
TNP is about living and celebrating the beauty and adventure of everyday life.
My blog vision statement…
So where do I see the blog going?
Ultimately, I want this blog to be a thriving hub of inspiration, creativity and beauty; and the place to go to for resources (in the form of free articles, books, ecourses, etc) to be uplifted, inspired and entertained. With your help we will build a community of passionate mindful people who say yes to the beauty of life and to adventure!
When we start to see the beauty and adventure in simple everyday living, magic happens!
So what do you think of the blog’s mission and vision statements? I hope it inspires you to write out your own personal mission statement of what you wish to accomplish with your life, if you haven’t already!
Thanks for joining us on this journey. I’m very glad you are here!
