Become a blogger

This is very new to me, being a blogger.

These past few years, I have been providing copywriting services to clients all around the world. Here are some samples:

  1. OhmConnect.com – Here I wrote blog content for a pretty cool app that gives you $300 per year just for turning off your lights during peak usage.
  2. Twik.io – Not going to lie, this company is incredible. I’ve helped with writing some page copy for their services and solutions. If you’re doing any kind of online marketing, Twik personalizes your content to suit every type of person on the planet.
  3. ForgedAxe.ca – I love working on Canadian projects. This one involved a variety of blog posts geared towards bachelorettes looking for things to do in Whistler, BC. Why not throw axes at pictures of exes before tying the knot until death or divorce, which, according to UN’s 2008 Report, it’s 48% likely to be a divorce?

I won’t bore you with all the work I’ve done, but I have to admit, it’s weird publishing on behalf of myself.

For starters, I’m not getting paid for this. But, that’s not the issue.

You see, I have 1000s of pages of writing hidden away in Google Drive folders.

Throughout all my traveling and exploring the world, I have been writing and documenting and remembering my experiences.

I never published anything.

Well, that’s not true. I have tried. A few times. In fact, I’m currently working on my travel blog and have promised so many people that it’s coming soon. But…

I’m way behind. My travel blog: Jef the Crazy Canadian is a challenge beyond imagination. I’m trying to find a way to translate all the knowledge I have acquired from working and traveling and living abroad into an enjoyable experience online.

It ain’t easy.

Added to the complexity of my situation, I am constantly moving from one country to the next in order to avoid overstaying my visa. This has its own hurdles. I have to find a new place that’s functional for writing, adjust to a new culture, and find foods that I can eat regularly and sustain my health.

Blah, blah, blah…

Anyway, I guess I’m an official “blogger” now, whatever that means.

If you or anyone you know is thinking about blogging, it could be about their lives, their travels, or their business, I have can talk the talk and I’m just begining to walk the talk.

And, I’ll share a little secret, there’s a way to get a website, like this one, running on a hosting platform for free for a year. I’m going to explain that later or you can write me an email if you really want to know.

For now, I have work to do.
