The Happy Blog - Everything About Happiness
The #1 place on the internet where you can read interesting and unique articles related to happiness!
I believe the absolute purpose in life is happiness. No matter what different things we value in life, we all try to be as happy as we can for as long as possible. You might say you want to be successful, famous, rich or healthy, but these are really just factors that ultimately influence your happiness. The Happy Blog is a place for the Tracking Happiness community to share interesting, entertaining and inspiring content about happiness.
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
