In my life, time always seems to be in such short supply. I had hoped coming home from Asia and “slowing down” would allow me to have more time to relax but it hasn’t….yet. After heading home in April, I had a million things to do (read: taxes) before I was off to Japan for three weeks, and then to Las Vegas for a conference.
But now, I am finally going to slow down like I had said I would months ago. Today is my last day in Las Vegas before I head to New York City for three weeks. There, I plan to do nothing but relax, catch up with friends, write, and do work. In mid-June, I’ll be speaking at the TBEX travel blog conference as well as World Domination Summit in early July before I move to Sweden.
But I have no big trips planned until my move and I’m looking forward to staying in one place, sleeping, and catching up with work. I think I have a little travel burn out. And, in the process of catching up, there are some changes coming I want to talk about:
I am finishing my book edits and if you submitted a quote for the book, I’ll be in touch very soon as the manuscript gets finalized.
I am updating my travel guide section as the last update was in September 2011. (I’m months overdue.) If anyone has been to the following destinations, please contact me as I would like your input (and I will pay for it):
- New Zealand
- Any islands in the Pacific Ocean or the Caribbean
All of these spots have been filled. Thanks for all the e-mails!
Please note you must have traveled to these destinations in the last 8 months and didn’t go on a tour, please reach me at [email protected] (Locals who live in this destinations are also welcome.)
I will be turning my book “How to Make Money with Your Blog” into a course starting in the summer. You’ll still be able to buy just the book but if you want something more complete, this course will teach you how to start and run an online business. It will last 4 months and feature coaching calls, assignments, and some free web services to get you started. I am still working out particulars but the price will be around a few hundred dollars. You can join this list to stay updated if you are interested.
Also, starting in the summer, I am going to be offering travel planning services. These services will range from offering one on one trip planning sessions going all the way up to actually booking your trip for you. I’ll also be giving you access to special discounts for your travels. You can join this list to stay updated if you are interested.
Lastly, I am looking for guest bloggers on the following subject: Gay and Lesbian travel, Central Asia, South America, the Pacific Islands. If you are interested, please contact me using the e-mail address above giving me some background on yourself, your writing, and your travels.
It’s going to be a busy summer here on Nomadic Matt!
