72 days summer FB-BIG copy

Hey guys, I’m running a summer offer on my online blogging course. For the first 72 people who sign up, it’s just $72. Or it ends in 72 days, whichever comes first. (Starting Sept 5th, I’m raising the price to $299). * According to this list, there are 2300 travel blogs of some size. Let that number roll around in your mouth: two thousand three hundred blogs. Even I am daunted by that number and I’ve been around forever. I posted that link in my Blog Brilliantly group and here is one of the responses: “I have to thank Christine…

In the middle of it all, clothes everywhere, kids sprawled out and sleeping on the futon in the living room, things half-cleaned and half-trashed, we got news that our friend Wyatt Neumann died.

After the huge success of our first “Hell Week” — I received emails from people asking, “When’s the next one?” Well, here it is, coming this September to idyllic Tossa de Mar, which is north of Barcelona on the Costa Brava coast. After some reflection, I decided to change the name… it wasn’t a hell week so much as a create week, so Create Camp was born. What is Create Camp? The week-long workshop started because my workshop students asked for it. Last November, as we finished a Blog Brilliantly workshop in Barcelona, everyone said: “Wouldn’t it be great, if…

The film is here! The film is here! The film is here! If you’ve followed this blog since the beginning (the very first post was on April 26, 2008) then you might remember this site’s tagline was once: “Quit Your Job. Travel the World.” A little context: Tim Ferriss’ NYT best selling book the 4 Hour Workweek had just come out a year earlier; I was one of the first people to do take his advice: Drew and I sold our house, saved like mad for a year, and took the big, scary leap to living abroad and working for ourselves. The first…
