Debut-Year Postmortem: A Penny for Your Thoughts!

postmortemIt is hard for me to believe, but it will have been one full year this coming Friday since I worked my last day at a job as a regular, full-time employee. Time flies! Albeit, much more slowly now that I’m no longer enduring the monotony of a day after day after day, day job.

What better time to stop and reflect with a debut-year blog postmortem!

So what are your thoughts on the blog?

Some people have told me they like the more practical posts, and want to see more. And I have had other people tell me my inspirational posts actually inspire them. I enjoy writing both styles very much, so the news is good!

Any other thoughts? Would you prefer to see more practical advice? More inspirational? More financial? More travel? Less of any or all of it? Do I sound like an asshole and it ain’t working for you? Or maybe I don’t? Or maybe I do, but you need that sort of thing to get you motivated? You used to read the blog but now you don’t and you just happened to click on this one because my new FB page is so awesome?

Give me your thoughts in the comments section if you do so desire! Or, feel free to use the Contact page if you don’t want to be so public about it. Now is your chance to help mold the future of the Noble Anarchist!

    Here’s a thought from your Penny…clever hey?

    I miss your travel writing when you are away. I know it’s a lot of work, but it always made us feel like you were right there with us even though you were a world away. A year in Africa is a hard act to follow, but I think your writing was all worth it, and I’d like you to do it again.

    The Nobel Anarchist is fine in his place, which to me should be when you are home. He has some valid points and is encouraging, I’m sure, for some, and certainly entertaining for most! When on vacation, you should be relaxing and enjoying yourself (which I’m sure you are), but my point is, thinking about money all the time can easily become an obsession, and then you won’t be wanting to spend any, or much, and will cause you to miss out on something you may never have another chance at because you cheaped out. I’ve done it myself, so I can say that. Do I have regrets? You bet. I’m sure you don’t go on your wonderful trips to save money, and it is always interesting to learn that things don’t need to cost an arm and a leg in order to get what you want. I totally agree there.

    I say give the NA a rest until you are back home, and send us some travel writing! You guys are visiting places I (and many others) will likely never get to go to for one reason or another, so bring on the vicarious vacations! I TOTALLY remember the photo of you in that red t-shirt from Ethiopia in your guide’s relatives’ house. The photo is one of my favourites of you. Hard to believe it was seven years ago already!

    That’s my 2 cents worth!

      Well if it makes you feel any better, the world will soon be receiving a very long retelling of our trip through Burma :)

      Thanks for the comment!
