A very bad blogger

October 26, 2008

I’m a bad blogger. I should update this more often and I am going to. I have big plans for this site actually. But first I need to finish the two sites I am working on. I got lazy and didn’t do anything over the past week. But one site is being beta tested now. The other will take me about three days since its a) in wordpress and b) using content I already wrote.

In other news, the great job isn’t so great. Disappointing. Got a job offer to move to China though! 12,000 RMB a month. A pretty good salary when it only costs 1,500 RMB to live.

and yes, geno, I know about CSS 🙂

Be back in a week with a better blog!

wow!

October 15, 2008

wow so i just got a third job offer. More like reaffirming one I had before but that these guys sort of flaked out on.  Well, now they have their stuff together and I am doing a trail period with them this week.  If it works out, I will be making more money than I ever thought possible. I’m talking SERIOUS money and not in baht…dollars. I won’t say how much but if this works out, I’ll be able to travel for a long, long, long time.

Also, building a website in html takes soooooooooooooo long, especially when it is over 100 pages.  So much code!!!

I need to buy more ram too- windows vista is a hog!

Until next time!

I’m on Twitter

October 11, 2008

I think I’ll be sticky to a twice weekly update. That’s probably how it will work.

I’ve gone and joined twitter so if you are there add me!! http://www.twitter.com/nomadicmatt

My new website is almost done! yay! It should be up in a few days. Then I can market the crap out of it and hopefully make more google money.

I need to get on the advertising thing too but I’m too busy coding.  Soon enough. I have some people who want to buy adspace from me.

My boss just gave me more work but its for helping kids with GMAT and well, I’ve never taught GMAT before so this should be interesting.

I am going to get a free copy of dreamweaver on monday.  I hope in a few weeks to have a job doing online marketing too.  I will be a super busy guy but its for stuff I enjoy.

Sean and Dawn from wanderingwhy.com have finally left me. After over a month in Bangkok they are on their way to Ko Samui now. It’s weird to not have people around who have become fixtures in your life.  They were good fun too. They’ll be missed.

I am meeting Tim from MatadorTrips tonight (met him a few days ago) and we’re gonna take the night life by storm.

Yeah so I’m not saving money…but I do have have internet in my apartment now so that will save me money over the long term. No more internet cafes everyday.

I am a slacker

October 9, 2008

There’s been so much going on in my life lately that my next website has yet to go up even though I wanted it to last week.  I am hoping to finish it this week.  hoping…..

My friends Sean and Dawn from wanderwhy.com have left Bangkok. It’s sad! they have been here over a month and were a fixture in my bangkok lifestyle. i don’t know what i will do now….i’ll have to go hang out with other people!

i’m broke though so i am holing my self up in my apartment for the next week finishing websites and doing work.

to combat my brokeness, i may skip out of bangkok after the new year and head to japan.  who knows but i want to travel next year so i need money.

other than that, life is good. i am a bit bored though.  i’ve met a cool girl here but we will see how that goes. i download a lot of tv from the states.

Tina fey does a great sara palin.

I like declarative sentences.  get used to them.  and typos. I hate spell check!

Another Manic Monday

October 6, 2008

I didn’t do any work on my new website this weekend. Instead, I went out.  typical really.   I am so far behind in getting this new website up.  I need to stop slacking. really.

I start my new job this week. It will be good to finally start making money and not making debt.

I joined twitter. You can find me there at the name “nomadicmatt.”

I joined a gym. They charged me half the price I payed last year.  I knew I got screwed last year. gaahhhhhh.

I’m really busy right now between work, designing this new website, doing this SEO stuff. I rarely have any time.  Once this other website is built and I get the 3rd one up (already have the content for it), I’ll be a free man.  It is not a lot of work I am just very unproductive with my time lol.

and raise your hand if anyone is actually reading this…
