    leave your daily hell

    Post  The Great Splendini on Tue Feb 04, 2014 1:04 pm

    american guy goes to shangai to teach english.

    then, starts a travel blog --- leaveyourdailyhell.com

    claims he doesn't need to work anymore and lives off his blog to travel all the time

    is it bullshit? how much can you make from a fucking blog?

    anyway, i wouldn't want to do nothing but travel.

    Yeah, "lives off a blog" sounds highly dubious.  Must have a trust fund or *something* backing him up.

    You don't just "travel the world" without substantial savings.  Even most of these backpacker/hostel types are usually doing it on family money (even if they're desperately pretending otherwise).  

    I've met very few people who can simultaneously "travel the world" and support themselves.  One group that can is blackjack players who have mastered counting cards.  The other are human parasites adept at engaging people socially and milking off them, scammers and the like.  If you fall into any other category you'd best have financial backing.  There ain't much in the way of short-term work, at least for kind of money you'll need.... even English teaching usually requires a one year comittment.  Airfares are high, apartments require deposits, leases, etc.

    Travel writing I guess can be lucrative, so maybe if the guy is publishing his travel guide it's keeping him afloat.  But if it's free on the website, I don't see how that could work out to big numbers.

    I just looked at the site.  He doesn't have ads and he's not selling anything so I don't see how it could be doing anything other than costing him money   scratch 

    Also, he's a FUCKING QUEER.  Why are you seeking out gay-specific travel advice Poo?  You a poofter or something?  Suspect 

    Ahhh, I get it now.  He blogs about all his "gay romance travel".  

    So it'd probably be more aptly titled  "Suck your way off around the world."

    I knew the money had to be coming from somewhere!

    I think I'll just keep my job instead  Rolling Eyes

    At the bottom of his site, he has "AS SEEN ON.... CNN / USA TODAY / THE HUFFINGTON POST"

    And another link .... "Send me on a trip".

    So I'm guessing he's being sponsored by companies.

    Still though. Good gig if you can get it.

    No, it's not all gay stuff, you homophobic silly person you.

    Anyway, it's not like I fucking bookmarked the site.

    I just stumbled on it.

    Damn, SK needs a sponsor then!

    I doubt any reputable organization is gonna be willing to associate with us, but maybe we can find some multi-billion dollar drug cartel or a rich weirdo cult to lay some sugar on us in exchange for supporting their nefarious aims.

    no, no one will associate with ME, that's for sure. you ain't getting any sponsors as long as i'm on here.

    speaking of the gays and scientology, L. Ron Hubbard claimed he could "cure" homosexuality with Dianetics.

    I read that shit when I was like 10 years old. I was really into anything weird I could get my hands on, not realizing at the time the evil that lurks in men's hearts and the bullshit they publish to that end.
