I'm starting a project wherein I walk each and every block of every street in Manhattan, at least once, over the course of roughly 2-3 months. I want to chronicle this process of walking all of Manhattan in a daily blog, preferably with a daily picture and some text. What do I call this blog? (And should I use tumblr? And anything else to keep in mind?)
I'm writing this as an anonymous post because I've written some highly personal questions with my AskMefi account, and this blog will possibly be written in my own name, so I'd prefer it not being tracked back to this AskMeFi account.
The blog would be pretty simple - a daily account of which streets walked, maybe a little description/essay if the mood moves me, perhaps a picture of two, and definitely a picture of a complete streetmap I have of Manhattan, with the blocks covered so far markered out. (My inspiration is this guy
.) I've lived in NYC for about six years, don't know how much longer I'll be here, and want to combine the need to exercise more often with an opportunity to see as much as my city as possible before I leave.
So, what to call it? Some (probably lame) ideas thus far:
Peeling the Big Apple
NYC Block By Block
Strolling the Empire
Also, so long as I'm asking, is tumblr the right platform to use? Any other ideas for this blog or overall project? (If you've done something like this, whether it be walking the entirety of Manhattan or this kind of daily chronicle, any advice would be much appreciated.
I've set up a throwaway account at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
