Why did we start our blog and where is it going?

Have you ever had a vision that was greater than your reality? ( I do hope that everyone can say “Yes!” to this question at some point in their life.)

Well, not too long ago, Drew and I were both without jobs and searching for a deeper purpose in one of the most extravagantly creative cities in the world, so we set out on a mission: To create something that would give us the ability to use and share our passions for adventure, photography, the world and well, each other!

This small, yet hopeful idea grew organically over time, turning into a huge way for us to connect with family and friends scattered across the globe, and reach new, incredible people whom we would have never had the pleasure of knowing otherwise! On top of that, before starting MrandMrsAdventure.com, we knew we liked to travel and hike, etc. but this site gave us even more reason to take it to a whole new level… literally!

We started by:

  1. Choosing a topic that we were absolutely head over heels (or should I say heels over head) about!

bungee america, bungee jumping, bridge to nowhere, adrenaline rush

sup yoga, headstand, mr and mrs adventure, mrs adventure,  headstand on paddle board, sup headstand, yoga, amazing yoga, brittany rouille

This was the easy part.

  1. Turning our dream into a reality.

This was and still is the hard part. There are so many opinions out there about how to build the best site, so, in order to cut back on the confusion, we stuck with our faves, Problogger and Nomadic Matt – whom we actually had the chance to meet at WDS last year (photo above)! We also started with a free WordPress site to get started. My grandpa always said, “You just have to start somewhere.” We are continuously brainstorming ways to improve upon and add to what we’re doing – I have a feeling that our dreams, and site, will only continue to grow larger and more exciting with time.

  1. Creating and discovering content.

The best part. Our passion for travel writing began when we were both very young. Drew’s parents thankfully “forced him” to journal everyday when he went to Hawaii for the first time at the age of 6, and I was given a travel journal when I went to France for the first time at the age of 6 too. Since then, writing and traveling have both become voluntary “must-dos” and so this site has become our amazing travel journal of the 21st century!

It’s a tale of three: one Mister, one Misses, and awholelotta ADVENTURE.

SO where is this blog going (besides EVERYWHERE)?

Well, this past week, our number of viewers surpassed 35,000 and the momentum is only growing! We could have never done this without help of friends and family who have shared our site with countless others – for bloggers, word of mouth is one of the greatest gifts you can give! We are constantly blown away by the number of people who have stumbled upon our site around the world and are deeply encouraged by the heartfelt messages we receive each week.

The next big update we have is that our site will be getting a total makeover! We feel that in order to grow this endeavor we need to step it up in terms of visual appeal, and we of course want to present you all with our very best. The new design will make browsing our adventures easier with organized tabs and our most recent posts displayed on the homepage. We’ll even be adding an online store as well as a calendar with trips you can sign up to join us on! Here’s a sneak peak:

Along with setting up the new look, over the next year we will be working hard to build video content, creating a new way to share and connect with you! We’re all about keep things fresh and interesting, so get ready, the first video will be coming your way this April!

We are so grateful for what the site has become and where it is headed, and we want to thank you all for your continued support and interest in what we do best – Adventuring, together! Check out the post where we announce the NEW DESIGN here!

    Keep up the good work, Brittany and Drew (although, kind of weird because I don’t know him). I started Madalynne having no idea it would grow into what it is today. It started from a seed of passion, and grew from there. Can’t wait to see the new blog layout!

      Thank you so much for your encouraging words Maddie, means so much. Your new year’s resolution a year or so ago to dedicate more time to your blog inspired Drew and I to do the same. I am so amazed by your talent and passion and truly believe there is no other way to live than to share it – so here we are! And Drew says thank you too 😉
