Driftyland was founded by Melissa Randall in 2010, originally called Melissa’s 100, as a means of pursuing her love for goal-setting. After conducting a bucket list activity that led her to connecting with individuals and organizations like Sophia Bush, Denis Leary and The CW Philadelphia, Randall opted to continue the blog with a focus on travel and self-improvement, renaming it Driftyland. 

After hitch-hiking around Iceland while working with Arctic Adventures and Iceland Excursions in 2013, Randall has continued domestic and international travel.

The Driftyland team connects and collaborates with entrepreneurs and makers in content, operations, and branding.
