While I’ve been plugging away at my quest to make an online income, someone else has been keeping themself busy with a pretty cool online project.  Lou’s sister Amy just launched her online erotic boutique Pomegranite, and it looks fantastic!  She’s got a history in website design and business management, so I was always confident that she would knock it out of the park, but it was still great to recieve her email today telling friends and family that her website is now live!

I suggest you all go over to the online boutique now to check it out.  Here’s a message from the LadyBoss herself:

Well, it seems that my not-so-grand plan to make money online is heading in the right direction!  After a very promising meeting with Lou’s yoga buddy’s friend from Cusco (the joys of networking eh?), I’m under orders to write a couple of articles a week about all things Latin American for the jolly nice travel agency Escaped to Latin America!

Never one to hang around, director Gary has already put up a couple of articles on coca and altitude that I’ve written which I’ll be spreading around the internet like sweet, sticky jam in the next week or so.  Onwards and upwards to a mobile income!

After the grinding of mental cogs that precede any decision, I’ve decided to start making steady, plodding progress into earning an income online. Searching through the depressingly inevitable mountain of sites that promise “MEGABUCK$ NOW!!!!!! for only $49.99!!!!!!!!!” I’ve found substance to my investigation, showing that there are plenty of people out there that make a modest but entirely acceptable living from hard work that they nevertheless greatly enjoy because they are doing something they love.  Not quite the answer the website below (ranked top of a Google search for “making money online”, of course) would have you believe.


So as far as I understand it, a fair amount of internet-based graft will eventually allow me to:

  • Travel wherever I want without being tied to one place by a conventional job
  • Stay on the road or choose a place to stay without needing to get back to a desk somewhere after a holiday
  • Find out a bit more about the crazy but interesting communities on the internet
  • Write about things that are important to me and share them with a like-minded worldwide group
  • Keep my eyes open and staying engaged in the ‘real world’ for interesting stories to share
  • Make a bit of a difference through what I do, hopefully improving lives for some people

It’s a multi-tentacled beast of a concept, and I’ve been navigating the various different possibilities for the last month or two, but I’m steadily getting there.

One fantastic and very inspiring resource that I recently came across (thanks to Amy) is “The Art of Non-Conformity“, a blog written by Chris Guillebeau.  On one particular post about dealing with ‘reality checks’, Chris included this wonderful quote by Joseph Campbell:

“People say that what we’re seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. What we seek is an experience of being alive.”

Whatever you may think of motivational websites, books and speakers, it’s certainly food for thought.
