Is it a movement, or is it becoming a new way of life?
You sell your home or move out of your apartment, grab your labtop and head to a sunny location and blog remotely.
As I travel through cyberspace I read blogging articles/comments about those who are in pursuit of working less, playing more, and/or wanting to escape the confines of their current situation.
It’ sounds like bloggers may be joining others who are finding more purpose in their lives, outsourcing menial tasks and working remotely.
In a recent article titled “Is This The Ultimate Entrepreneurial Dream”, Catherine Lawson shares links to places to go, and asks that burning question, “Is this for You?
Sterling Okura and Rebecca (a lawyer) have practiced working remotely and share how they do it, in this post titled : “How To Travel & Work Remotely As A Couple”
If you’ve ever spent time at the ocean, you may remember how it cleansed your soul. Mark, at Creative Journey Cafe, an artist who has never held a “traditional” job, shares: “Why Escape Is Good (Creative Advice From the Ocean)”
And Clay Collins, of The Growing Life, has taken this a step further and provides “47 Decent Lifestyle Design Resources”
Although working remotely has been a way of life for many years, it appears more individuals are dreaming of joining the movement.
Did it start with the “charm” of The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich
Are we looking for ways to simplify our lives, and go back to the basics,? Grab a pair of flip flops, swim trunks, digital camera, Blackberry and laptop, head to the islands, and blog as we bask in the sun?
Are we in pursuit of an elusive dream?
Are we running from “something, or to “something” better?
Do we really hate to work for “the man (or woman)” that much?
Is being able to work remotely , just a “carrot” that keeps us moving forward, with hopes of a better life? Or have we not yet realized both happiness and (some of) our problems are “within us”. And we take them wherever we go?
Do you think blogging, and the ability to make money with it, will spawn an alternative life style for bloggers?
Do you dream of beach blogging? Or has the dream become a reality?
Are you burnt out on the 40 hour (or more) work week and dream of a life in the islands?
Or do love the security of a home, and have no desire to work remotely?
