Blog Of The Week: 40 x 40

I'm not sure who started theirs first, but I came across this blog when the author contacted me. Willy The Prince (the author) is a younger, American version of myself and has the advantage of a few more years than I, to complete her list. I find her list uncannily similar to mine, both in the kind of tasks listed and the fact that it's such a diverse mixture of tasks. From taking a charity vacation to dying her hair red, WTP enters each task with enthusiasm and determination. I especially like the fact that I have someone to 'champion' me now. Whenever WTP completes a task off her list, it has the knock on effect of motivating me into completing one as well, so I have a lot to thank her for.
I also love the fact that by looking at lists such as the 40 things one, it gives you an insight into the personality of the author and I'm kicking myself to not including some of WTP's tasks on my own list (although her scanning old photos has inspired me to begin scanning all my family photos). All in all, whenever a new post pops up in my google reader, I look forward to reading about her adventures and I hope you will too!

You are so sweet! Thanks for the shout out. Isn't it strange that we have so many things in common? I did create mine before I read your's and was taken back by the similarities.

Thanks for being a cheerleader!

I get to tick Ireland off and will write about it as soon as I catch-up on my work.

I feel we have far too much in common. Our lists are very similar, however you have made me think about what the important ones are on my list and I feel a really long post coming on xx

Yummy Mummy - It's weird how so many of us all have similar things to achieve isn't it? PS Thanks for the mention!

I jus stumbled on this blog and am glad i did it. The title of your blog has made me stand up and think. Even i feel the need to consciously work towards the things i have been wanting to do but kept postponing it. After all life is so unpredictable, i wouldn't like to carry that list to my grave.
All the best for all that you want to do before u turn 40.
