Hey everyone, you have officially found the first ever edition of Life After the Cubicle. Okay fine, it’s more like the pilot edition since it has not yet officially launched. Anyways, this will be an ongoing series that I hope to keep around indefinitely. The series can be found under the Life category on my navigation bar.
Introduction to the Series
Life After the Cubicle is going to be my story about what I am doing now that I have quit my office job to try new things. I am going to focus on writing about my gigs, short-term jobs, and any freelance opportunities I encounter along the way. If I sell some crap on Craigslist to pay my cellphone bill, here is where you can read about it.
I will also document my journey to make a full-time living online through this blog along with a few other sites. I hope to share some more tips on blogging and share my stats as far as traffic and what I have set for goals. It is more like a journal documenting my journey to become an entrepreneur .
I think it will be really interesting to document it and it will help me stay motivated to succeed at it. Who knows, I might even influence a few others to ditch the cubicles and move on to a more satisfying life. We will see…
Enough with the hype right? Here is the news I am sharing for the first ever episode:
I Have Joined the 42nd Estate
I have officially joined the 42nd Estate, a group of bloggers hoping to make an impact on the internet. You can check out the 42nd Estate blog as well as Adam Pieniazek’s blog for my introduction and what my background is (not that you don’t know already). I plan to start helping them out more with some of the sites including Only The Interner’ts Best Reviews, which is a site that plans to review everything in the world. I have also designed the graphic for We Demand Videos, a site that brings the best videos from YouTube to one easy to find location.
I think this is an awesome step in the right direction. Not only can I utilize my blogging knowledge on some more sites, but I can continue to learn more and more. I am amazed at what I have learned since I started this blog in the beginning of February.
Over the next few months, I hope for a lot to happen. I already have another blogging position setup that I am eager to start workong on as well. I will wait until the next edition to share that since it is still in the beginning stages.
And that concludes the first pilot edition of Life After the Cubicle. Don’t worry, it will get a lot better and I will even make a sweet graphic for the series : ).
PS. At the end of each Life After the Cubicle post, I will be placing this bar which shows my Alexa ranking as well as my Google PageRank. I am in no way trying to brag about any stats, but instead want to share my journey so I can see my progress as time moves on.
Alexa: 70,274 / PageRank: 3
