About This Blog

What this blog really does.

Support VBJ’s writing on this blog:

The thread that holds any reader to any media source is now almost impossibly thin. Someone reads something they don’t like or agree with, poof, they’re gone. There are a million other websites and blogs out there to read. Millions that remain stale and opinionless my design to keep from alienating any readers.

But I offer another incentive to those who stick around. Riddled through articles about this or that and ruminations on explorations into ethics, culture, and human nature there is straight up instruction on how to live a lifestyle that I think should be highly sought after. If you read this site, and I mean really read, I will teach you how to travel the world, live anywhere you want, create a living for yourself, and spend your days exactly how you wish to a reasonable extent. I do this by showing an approach, by relating a pattern — a strategy. I don’t need to tell long term readers of this site where exactly to find cheap accommodation, food, and work, because they’ve already learned the ins and outs of doing this for themselves.

This is the main reason why this site will always be different than National Geographic, Lonely Planet, and the gimmick blogs. My cards are on the table, I will show and tell you the methodology behind not only going there — that’s simple — but staying there.
