Ahhhh, the blog. It starts. It stops. It starts up again. Then it stops again. This is my history with this blog, and if you’ve been around since the beginning you already know. But hey, nobody’s paying me to do it, so who cares right?
I figured it was long overdue to give you all an update on what has been going on. The last you heard from me, I was all heavy on location independence and traveling the world while making a living. And I was doing it too! Running my consulting business while traveling wasn’t exactly easy, but it can be done! But that is on hold for the time being. I actually have a real life job (which is kicking major ass by the way), and we are living in Boise, Idaho with a 12 month lease.
But its not a bad thing. Its a good thing. Amie and I are preparing for our biggest adventure of all – we are expecting a brand new baby boy sometime in early July! For a while we thought about trying to do it all at once. You know, keep traveling while we are pregnant, settle down for just a few months once it was time to actually have the baby, then keep going. But after some very long thought on the subject, we obviously decided against it.
Sure, the thought of raising the baby on some beautiful beach in Thailand might sound kind of cool, but in actuality it would probably be kind of lonely. Plus, we hear that kids are expensive and figured we probably ought to save up a little bit to prepare for this new adventure.
So preparing we are! I’m now working for a really cool software company called cBizSoft, based out of Dallas. For my history with the company, you can check out this post that explains everything. I’m helping with everything from Sales & Marketing, UI & Web Design, Product Strategy, Social Media and more. I’m able to work remotely from home which was the main requirement from my standpoint. After all, once we have this kid there is a good chance we’ll set our sights on new destinations again.
Amie is doing very well and both her and the baby are very healthy. We have decided to go the “all natural” route and are having the baby with a great team of Midwives at our local birthing center. We are extremely excited to become parents but of course a little scared too. Being back in Boise and close to family will hopefully be a good thing. We have such wonderful friends and family here to help support us on the journey! Plus, Boise is a pretty damn cool city if you ask me. Quick access to nature (we can walk to the river AND hiking trails directly from our house), quick access to the city (we’re just a 10 minute drive), and an awesome climate. Just last week I was able to go snowboarding AND biking in the same day.
Just as life is continually evolving and changing, so does this blog. I’m planning on starting to write on more topics that are currently relevant to me and to the space that I’m working in. Expect to see more posts highlighting technology, software, recruiting & staffing and more. If those things don’t interest you, feel free to unsubscribe at any time. We can always stay connected through Facebook right?
With regards to social media, I’m most active on Twitter. So if you are a Twittererer (??!) yourself, don’t forget to follow @bryanmwilson
How are things in your neck of the woods? I have to give a shout out to the “Swiss Crew”! You know who you all are! Congratulations on all the new babies!! It seems like even though we all live so far apart, we are just “in sync”. I can’t wait to make another trip out there and let all the little ones play together. This time for an extended time. My baby is going to learn Swiss German at a young age!
