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

Who runs Tracking Happiness?
My name is Hugo, and I'm from the Netherlands. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Engineering, a passion for data and statistical analysis and am an expert in happiness.
I've tracked my happiness every day for 5 years in a row. And I'm now using my knowledge to inspire you to prioritize your happiness. You see, I'm a strong believer in what gets measured gets managed. I want to show you what I - and many others - have learned while tracking your happiness.
My Happiness Essays have reached thousands of people around the world and have been shared in many places.
With my data, I have inspired hundreds of others to also track their happiness. And I'm hoping this number will only grow more!
