What is the Happy Blog about?
The Happy Blog is about pretty much everything that's related to happiness. Most importantly, it will NOT be just about my own happiness.
You see, up until the birth of the Happy Blog, the scope of this website has been mostly my own personal happiness.
I want trackinghappiness.com to be so much more than just that!
I want the Happy Blog to be more about you!
The list of topics that are covered in the Happy Blog is virtually endless. But I still want to give it a try. The Happy Blog is going to include:
- Posts about (tracking) happiness from the community (that's YOU!)
- Articles about more than just happiness (think about other psychological topics)
- Interviewing others about their experiences with finding happiness in life
- Highlighting the most interesting studies
- Sharing insightful journals from all over the world
- Perhaps product or book reviews
- Guest posts from other prominent writers on the subject of happiness
- Editorial stuff

Today, I’m interviewing Matt Welsh. He made the decision to shift careers entirely after finding his true passion in life. After a stressful career in law, he finally followed his heart and went back to school to study psychology. And it paid off! He is now a happy clinical psychologist, and never regretted his decision for even a moment.
A couple of weeks ago, I got in touch with Alex, an analyst at the Happiness Research Institute. Turns out Alex has tracked his happiness for the last 13 years! He lives and breathes like a data analyst, and happens to be passionate about happiness just like all of us!

This is the first community post here on Tracking Happiness. Joining us here is Sanjay, and he is about to share what he has learned from tracking his happiness for the past half year.

This first community post shows exactly how he improved his life!

I didn’t originally plan this post, but it now includes all of the reactions I received on Reddit. It shows how the community of Reddit feels towards their jobs, and if they need to sacrifice a lot of happiness for it. The article ends with a call to action, to inspire others to think about this interesting question as well to continue the discussions!
