Why I Got Rid of the Comments Section

I eliminated the comments section on my blog

In case you didn’t notice, you can no longer comment on my website. That was a very purposeful, very directed decision I made recently. While I believe in free speech and I fully encourage debate, I will no longer allow vile commentary on my personal website. I’ve eliminated the comments section altogether.

Get Paid to Do What Makes You Happy

Earn a living being happy

I saw a video the other day and something struck me as particularly ironic. Most people viewing that video will chuckle, marvel at how unique the person is, and then carry on with their days. Most people will not look at this video and feel inspired to follow their passions. But I think it’s the most important part of this particular video.

International Living Roatan Information

International Living Roatan Correspondent

I’ve been covering LOTS of great businesses and lifestyles for expats in Roatan lately, so if you’re not an International Living subscriber, you’re missing out! You can always head to their basic information pages to learn more about Honduras in general, and Roatan specifically. Additionally, on my author page you’ll find some articles that are open to the public, though some in that list are password protected.

Working on the Road

working on the road

Freelance writing is new to me as of this year, so it’s been a steep learning curve in terms of finding clients, diversifying my portfolio, and actually making enough money to pay my bills. As a self-motivated worker I’ve been able to manage my own time fairly well – of course I have days I get distracted by social media, or my dog, or the sunshine – but for the most part I’ve been able to balance work and play as a self-employed freelance writer.

Blog Stats and a HUGE Thank You!

Happiness quotes

I monitor my blog stats fairly regularly, mostly because it shows me what people search for that leads them to me and what it is that interests them most once they’re here. I can see search terms, referrals, and what you actually click on to learn more. That’s pretty cool! It helps me to narrow in on the type of information you’re seeking. On top of all that, you’ve all been increasing my numbers over the past year to the point that I can start working with advertising partners on my blog. Very cool!

Freelance Writing from Paradise

Amanda Walkins writer

In an effort to offer some inspiration to other aspiring freelance writers out there, I wanted to share an update on my writing career since announcing that I’d left a salaried job and gone full-time as a freelancer. As scary as it can be to venture out on your own, I live in a place with a great cost of living that allowed me to quite easily take this chance. Worst case scenario: it doesn’t work and I need to find another job. No big deal!
