I’m not entirely sure what I’m meant to do for it though… I had a little look around at other blogs to see what they did for their hundredth post, and to be honest it can get a bit cringe sometimes. A lot of talking about how they’ve grown as a writer over the last 100 posts and it’s all very ‘look how far I’ve come’. Ick.
Don’t get me wrong, I love to be a little self-indulgent on here. I’m actually a little worried I may be slightly narcissistic to write about myself all the time. But quite frankly, I don’t feel like I’m in a position to be praising my progress just yet. Sure I’m totally proud of how many of you read Heels In My Backpack on the regs, but I’ve got a lot bigger plans in mind. I like to dream big, people. So once I’m the CEO of my own company, get to travel to those far-flung places on my bucketlist and live the fabulous life I’ve imagined for myself, I’ll be more than happy to write about my success. In the meantime, I’ll keep on trucking, writing about the things I love and working on taking over the world. Totally achievable, right?
So anyway, another thing that’s pretty common in these posts is putting links up to the most popular posts to date. The thing is, the most popular posts on Heels In My Backpack aren’t necessarily my favourites. For example, my most popular post to date is one I wrote a couple of years ago slagging off Shampoo Bars. It’s popular because it goes against most backpackers’ opinions, but it’s not the most fun post ever.
So I decided to choose my top 5 fave posts that I really just loved writing. Because I do what I want. Here it is…
This was just a couple months ago but I just really love writing about Southeast Asia. I think I left my heart in Luang Prabang (and my dignity in Koh Phangan).
I did my very first competition on Heels back in March and it was really fun to organise. What did you think of the comp? Should I do another?
I totally heart San Francisco and just want to do everything on this list all over again! TAKE ME BACK!
As I’m currently in the ‘saving’ phase for a trip, writing this really helped me make a plan of action. Remember not to become a complete recluse, it’s easily done.
Saying I love food is a bit of an understatement. My friends and family will attest to this. So I’m already eager to write a follow-up to this post!! Bon Appetit.
I believe it is now customary to thank you for reading! Seriously I appreciate it. I always think I’m writing into the ether with no-one reading this, until I get lovely message from you guys! So thanks for that, it’s real nice.
So there you have it. I’ve succumbed to being a total cliche for my 100th post. What you gonna do.
