Ok, so I changed my theme again. I kept that last one for a LONG time, but I got a little restless. I'm sad to say goodbye to the awesome cartoon that Kristen drew me, but I had to get this gangsta picture of me up here. I couldn't resist.
I know that there are a few minor issues with the theme (like the fact that I haven't tagged / assigned a category to any of my posts for the past year or so). I'll probably go back and fix that and make it look pretty for you.
The REAL exciting news is that I'm going to be writing features for Gadling.com. Gadling is a travel blog, and I think it's the most popular one on the net. I'll be writing a story every week for them. It's a cool site, so definitely check it out... my favorite posts are the ones by the pilot guy. Very interesting to see behind the scenes there.
It's interesting that I've become a writer of sorts. I used to hate writing papers and usually just failed to do it when they were assigned to me. I don't really consider myself a writer, though. I consider writing to be the necessary side effect of living a pretty cool life and wanting to keep other people in the loop.
Ok, time to get some sleep over here in the land of the rising sun. Thanks for reading!
Awesome new theme, I love it!
I feel the same way about writing. I find myself enjoying it more and more. It is definitely a skill that I'm glad that I'm working on. When you can write well, it really does make a big difference in living a well balanced life.
Washburne: I used a pen name that sounded like a woman's name because women prefer to be sold to by other women (or so say the marketing gurus)
I love the LN theme!
Well you certainly found a good looking girl for the picture.
Concerning the LN theme: I think it's too boring. It's all grey and not flashy like your other sites (or your life). I think it doesn't fit the theme of a traveller.
But I guess you don't care what I think ;-)
btw: Bastard! Just when I start thinking about buying an old Mercedes S-Class I have to find out you beat me to that too!
Just a quick question. Is the "Dana Moore" at SkinnySnob a fake person? If so, why did you choose to build the site upon one, if not so, who is she?
PS: New layout is great. Now pick a new one for Life Nomadic!
totally digging the new site. RescueTime is a sweet widget, too!
my fave part is the background. you ARE an egomaniac! keep it up!
I have the predicament of wanting to do everything before I die. Number 234,220 on that list is writing a novel, so we're going to get that one knocked out this month.
Why November? Because it's NaNoWriMo, the unfortunately acronymed National Novel Writing Month. You can go sign up at the web site and pledge to write a 50k word novel in one month. Usually 1 out of 6 people actually finish it. I'll be one of those people. Will you?
I have a pretty cool idea for a story, and I think I'm already a pretty good storyteller. What's really exciting, though, is that writing 50k words apparently makes everyone who completes it a much better writer. Remember the practicing thing from yesterday? Let's practice being good writers. Get ready for some kick ass stories up in this piece.
I've been writing in a blog for about a month now. Thanks to Tynan, one of my posts got a bunch of viewers right away, but since then, it's been only me. That's fine. I understand that most blogs don't take off until the writer becomes known or respected outside the blogosphere for something.
Why did I start when I did?
SETT was ready. I had been waiting for it to be ready before I started my own. Not for any particular reason. I'm not sure I'll stick with it- as a developer I can see a lot of stuff I'd like to add as far as customizations go- but I'm gonna stay with SETT for a long while and see what comes of it.
A couple reasons. For starters, a blog done right allows people a fuller picture of my life and thoughts. Facebook statuses and twitter updates aren't nearly enough to do that unless you're an MTV whore. Despite outward appearances I really doubt anyone is ADD to the point of having only the shallow thoughts with which they present themselves.
