Life As A Freelance Blogger

First off, thanks for checking out the first ever podcast here on Life of Justin! I really hope you enjoy it. For each podcast, I will feature the mp3 link along with the built in player. Simply click the play button and you’re good to go.

I will also try my best to type of the podcast or include some notes. That way if you don’t have speakers or a place to listen, you can still read it. As my podcast get longer (which they will), I will most likely start summarizing them instead of writing them out in full.

Anyways, lets get started. Click read more below to listen to the podcast.

Read It Instead:

As you all know, I quit my office job back in October and have not had a job since. Its been a long and winding road ever since then. When I first quit, I had a full-time blogging position with a company here in Phoenix. I got paid to write blog posts, market the blog, and do all the design work.

Best Job In The World

If you haven’t seen this yet, you have to check it out. An Australian state is offering one of the coolest jobs ever. Not only does it pay $105,000, but it also includes free airfare and rent! Here is a link to the news article.

From the looks of it, the main job responsibility is to just “hang out.” For 6 months, the person gets to surf, snorkel, and have all the fun they want down under. The main task is to report to the world via photos, blogs, and other forms of media. Sounds perfect doesn’t it?

I think I am a great candidate for the position. I can surf, snorkel, and stroll the beach with the best of them. Throw in my badass blogging skills and they can’t pass me up. Haha

News From the Weekend

I hope everyone had a good weekend. I managed to get drunk, watch football, rip my blog theme apart, and completely rebuild most of it from the beginning up. I guess it was a pretty constructive weekend…

What’s New With the Theme?

Believe it or not, the entire theme itself is different. After hours on end of looking at php and css code, I managed to make it look VERY close to the old theme.

The first major difference is that the sidebar has been cleaned up and simplified. I wanted to incorporate a E-mail form so people can subscribe to receive updates, tips, and awesome information about anything I can think of. I even squeezed in links to all of my social network profiles.

I also added some new features to the homepage such as the Popular Posts section at the top. I wanted a way to showcase some of my best posts at the top along with some awesome pictures.

Bored At Work? Try Flying!

So I downloaded Google Earth the other day at work, and my days have gone by faster ever since. When I first started using it, I simply typed in random places and looked around. This was pretty cool because I could look at places I had never been before. But then… The Flight Simulator I […]
