Other Stuff I Wrote This Month

by gigigriffis

Over the past eight or so months, while Luna and I have been hopping between countries, making new friends, and finding our rhythm in this life of constant change, I’ve also been doing more and more writing. I mean, I’ve always done a lot of writing. I write websites and billboards and brochures and taglines. I write articles on the intricacies of templating and run interviews with smart content pros. That is how I make my living and I do a lot of it. But. But I’ve started writing more about, well, other things. Dog travel, simple living, not letting people keep you from your dreams. Things that inspire me. Things that I hope inspire all of you.

And as I hope to continue the trend, publishing more little inspirations around the web, I also thought I should probably start sharing things with you. Here. (I already share many of them on Facebook, so you can join me there as well; I’d love to be friends.)

So here’s the first installation of Other Stuff I Wrote This Month. And here’s what I published this January:

My Minimalist Update @ MissMinimalist.com
“After four months of full-time travel with just a backpack and a dog, I’ve become even more of a minimalist. So, when I returned to Colorado this fall to sell my car, re-pack my bag, and plan for my next adventures, I also took on an even more ambitious minimizing project…” Read more.

I knew it would be fantastic to fall asleep every night — whether in a hotel, a holiday rental, or a friend’s guest room — with a warm puppy snuggled up beside me…” Read more.

How to Take Your Show on the Road @ The Traveling Advisor
“It probably sounds pretty unusual, but the truth is that there are lots of people out there just like me who are digitizing their businesses, packing their bags, selling their stuff, and hitting the road with gusto. Statistics say that by 2016, one in five Americans will be working outside an office. And outside an office doesn’t necessarily have to mean from home in your pajamas. If you’re willing to juggle time zones, give up some of the comforts of home, and get creative, it could mean anywhere in the world…” Read more.

Also, and on an unrelated note, I just added an email subscription link to the website. If you’d like to get blog posts via email, please subscribe here! I promise I won’t spam you or sell your email, etc. etc. etc. You’ll just get new blog posts first thing on the mornings they post (which is usually 2 – 3 times per week).

I’m inspired by your freedom! I’m on my journey to becoming self-employed within the next year.

Thanks! That’s so exciting! The feeling when you finally step off that ledge into full-time self employment is amazing…so exhilarating and scary and wonderful. Good luck!
