Do you dream of living a creative and adventurous life? One where you answer to no one but yourself while traveling the world, exploring your passions and connecting with fun and like-minded people?

The 37 creative and adventurous bloggers below are each on an unconventional life path like that. Most are trying to become completely self reliant while getting out to see the world first-hand.

I’ve befriended many of the people on this list this year. The community that has grown up recently around living an unconventional life of self-sufficiency and adventure is encouraging and supportive. Check these bloggers out tell me who your favorites are in the comments!

    Seriousness: This is a great list and I already follow a lot of people on here, but the ones I don’t, I need to get in on. Thanks for putting this together.

    My husband and I left our safe expat lives in Prague in 2006 to travel around the world.

Three years later, we still have a lot of the world to see and professional/personal skills to tune.

    Corbett,
    Thanks for putting this list together. I feel quite honored to see ISOS listed among some great minds. I think it’s still quite a young blog and there’s so much to share that I haven’t been able to get up yet. All of those growing pains make seeing the site listed here so meaningful. Thanks for all your support.

    This is a great list, and I’m proud to know and actually work with a few of those mentioned (Andy and JoAnna). Of course, it’s always great to see new faces.

    We — me, my husband Noah and daughter Lila — sold all our stuff and started traveling in January of 2007 with the goal of finding a new place to call home. It’s been an amazing, life and outlook changing experience, and I’m happy to say we just rented a house in Salta, Argentina.

    Now a new adventure begins.

    I love the Middle Finger Project name and I really am impressed with this long list of cool bloggers. I am always looking for creative bloggers to follow and learn from. The Internet has really changed the way a small portion of the population lives and works, that is for sure.

    Hey Corbett,

    Great list, great sites, I have many more to visit. I’ll get back to you on my favorite! ;)
    We are a family of four in the beginning stage of “living our life through journey”. We sold off all our ‘stuff’ and bicycled from Jacksonville Beach, FL to San Diego, CA. (we are not cyclist’s) Blogging about the trip all along. It has indeed been life changing. We are planning new adventures and working on making the adventures and travel our everyday lifestyle.
    Thanks for putting this list together for my family and other like-minded unconventional liver’s of life!
