A quick update on what’s in the works…
We’re getting there! In the next month or so I look forward to easing into a groove of steady posts and regular columns. This will include my own travel journal and reflections, the Vicarious Volunteering series spotlighting causes around the world, and quick tidbits like a weekly photo.
In the initial start-up phase the challenge has been to take an exciting idea and refine its focus. It’s been a time of brainstorming, defining goals, lots of networking, and googling my way through WordPress blog design and video production. Not to mention finding the “voice” of the project and my own writing. But it’s coming together.
Coming soon are features on the Helping Honduras Kids, Colombia Sin Fronteras, and Tender Heart NGO organizations. Also, a well-defined mission statement and detailed guidelines for the use of sponsorship funds. (Related: Causes page)
Personally, I’m getting my mobile office together. Again, lots of googling. After sorting through SIM cards, 3G, GSM, CDMA, tethered modems, roaming, data packages, VoIP, and SIP clients (breath in), armed with a travel laptop and an iPhone, I look forward to being a location independent digital nomad. Perpetually connected, this blog will be updated from wherever it takes me (Twitter too, don’t you worry!).
So hang tight, it’s gonna be good. To everyone currently sponsoring, subscribing, encouraging, thanks so much. Your support adds meaning and momentum to a budding idea.
