I have two big things to cover in this post. From the title, you can probably guess that one of the announcements is the start of a new ebook.
Yes, it’s happening. I’m putting together a lot of information into an ebook for this blog. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while so I’m thrilled to finally announce it.
Starting an eBook
I wanted to wait until there was a sizeable audience for this blog and now that I have well over 1000 RSS subscribers and thousands of Twitter and Facebook followers, I finally feel like there is one.
The topic of my ebook is similar to the post I put out a few weeks ago called “How I Saved Up $10,000 to Fund My Travels”.
It’s going to be a really detailed description about how I save up money to travel. It will have a step by step guide on how you can save up money to travel and make travel cheaper. To sum it up in one sentence, it is going to answer this question:
“How do you afford to travel so much?”
It’s going to cover:
- How to cut costs and save up money to travel
- How to save money while traveling, and
- How to make it so money is never an obstacle to traveling.
Right now I have a general outline for the book. I already have a few thousand words down and I keep adding more to it each day. At this time, I don’t have a title yet, but maybe I’ll narrow it down and ask you all what you think.
That’s all the information I have to share about it now. It’s good to finally get this out there. I’ve only told a few people about it so far, but the idea has been sparking a lot of interest.
So that’s it for now. I’ll release more information about it as I go.
Here’s the second update:
To those Who Use Google Reader
For those of you who don’t use Google Reader, you can skip this section completely. Seriously, you’re not missing anything.
Still with me?
For those of you who use Google Reader, this section has an important message. You may be aware of this information already, but I still want to go over it.
If you’re subscribed to a lot of blogs, you’ve probably been inundated with posts from them about why you need to change your reader and how to do it. Even if you haven’t, you’ve noticed Google Reader’s constant messages informing you that they’re shutting Google Reader down.
So you know that Google Reader is closing their doors on July 1st. I don’t know what will happen after that day, but you might lose access to all the blogs you follow including this one.
That means you better move all your RSS subscriptions to another reader.
You have two options to choose from in order to keep getting updates from this site:
- Switch from Google Reader to Feedly. It’s a good service that lets you transfer everything from Google Reader right to it quickly and easily.
- Subscribe to email updates. You’ll get all new updates from the site directly to your inbox.
No matter how you do it, thanks for reading.
