My First Blogger to Blogger Interview: Speaking with the Couple behind KarolinaPatryk.com

Karolina and Patryk have had the honor of being part of my first blogger interview ... check it out!

While I have struggled to update and post on PoE in recent months (for the most part due to attempting to balance running a business with traveling and other aspects of my personal life), I have started to right the ship in recent weeks.

One of the things that has come out of the increased free time that I have had as a result has been my first blogger interview. Karolina and Patryk from karolinapatryk.com are a Polish couple who has been exploring the world for the past 18 months or so, and have also succeeded in making an income from the internet in the process.

Click here to read my thoughts on travel, life and work … hopefully this blogger interview is the first of a series of guest posts and such that will increase my site’s profile across the travel blogosphere … enjoy!

Working Hard To Live The Dream

So I’ve been conspicuously absent lately … to my dedicated following who has wondering where I went to these past two weeks, apologies! While I am committed to producing an excellent blog that spills the beans on how to enable and live a life of excitement, the enabling part has taken over in the recent few weeks.

In order to fund my playboy lifestyle of wandering exotic parts of the world, I have started up a freelance writing business (got content you need written? Talk to me.) With a little help from my friends in the travel blog community, I’ve inked a number of clients, and in the past couple of months, business has been booming.

While this has been great for the bottom line, it has caused my personal development activities/blog writing to suffer in the short term, which is a balance that I’m looking to redress presently.  As such, I will be doubling my efforts to keep PoE on schedule, to do the things that will improve my life, forward other business ideas that I have, and generally help me to live the dream in a manner that resonates with me.

Even if I post a text blog with a CC image because I’m squeezed for time and I’m in a country where bandwidth flows at the rate it did in 1999 back home (Indonesia)…

Or it could be because I’m downloading the latest episode of the Walking Dead.  Don’t judge … even the busiest of people need a fictional release of the rapid pace of the modern, online world…! 🙂

Coming Soon: The All New Pursuit Of Excitement, Version 2.0!

sunrisnewdaypoeA new day is dawning soon … the new site for The Pursuit Of Excitement is almost ready!

Hey there stranger!

James here. Perhaps you were looking for my well-established travel and adventure blog.  It exists, but not on this server.  At least not yet.  Instead of typing in pursuitofexcitement.com, go to pursuitofexcitement.wordpress.com for the time being.  In the ensuing weeks, I will be moving posts over to this server (check below for my most recent ones), and when I’m ready to launch this bad boy, you’ll hear all about it over on my current site.

In the meantime, feel free to bookmark this site if you wish, and keep checking this space as renovations progress! 🙂
