Welcome to Nomadly in Love!

Hi friends, 

So, finally, it’s here: Nomadly in Love is live. Getting to this point took much longer than I’d anticipated, and I actually cried a few times along the way. Apparently web design is not my superpower. After two failed attempts of starting from scratch–and all the time, money, emails and headache entailed with that–I finally decided to just replicate Sprinter Life, add some functionality, and call it good.  At least now I can start writing again, which is the main purpose anyway. Hooray!

So let me tell you what’s the same and what’s new at Nomadly in Love: 

 

Same:

  • We’re still a family of nomads traveling in a vehicle, living a downsized lifestyle with super-sized life experience. We’re still going around the world, albeit slower than the melting icecaps. And I’ll still be updating the blog with photos and journal-style entries of our Daily Life.
  • Ice cream is still awesome.

New: 

    • Aside from Daily Life updates and Essays, I’ll also be writing Recipes from the Road. Most will be vegetarian–all will be wholesome, delicious, and simple to make. Sometimes they’ll be adaptations from other recipes, but mostly they’ll be original inspirations I picked up from our travels. 
    • I’ve also added an Ask Stevie tab on the menu bar. Throughout the years, I’ve answered hundreds of emails, ranging from “What’s it like crossing borders?” and “How do you make money?” to more personal inquiries like “I really want to travel like you guys, but my wife is a homebody. How do I convince my spouse to live life on the road?” Knowing how often I get the same questions, and how often we all privately struggle with the same issues, I’ve wished I could share some of these conversations openly. If you’re okay with sharing, you can login via various Social Media Networks, or ask anonymously if you prefer more privacy. And, of course, I’m still available via email. I answer every one. 
    • I’ve added a Giving=❤ tab that is a place for me to give you short e-books, manifestos, nomad gear guides and other cool stuff (Coming Soon!), and for you to reciprocate, as well, for the value you get from the site.
    • Email subscription list is more manageable! You can sign up to receive All Posts, or only Daily Life, Essays or Recipes, or a combination of the three. Also, you can choose to receive updates weekly or monthly. 
    • There’s other bells and whistles, too, like updated Media, Video, and Our Story pages, and better social networking tools that allow you to share the posts and/or images through Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

Another thing that’s evolved is my intention with the blog.  Sprinter Life started out as a diary to update our family and friends as we drove the Pan-American highway. But, through the years, the blog became something more than that. It’s become a community with whom I can share my ideas, passion, and inspiration through photos and words. And, even more than that, it’s also become a conversation, a way for me to hear back from you in a way that other mediums, like magazine articles and books, don’t facilitate.  

With Nomadly in Love, I just want to keep the conversation going. I want to keep discussing and sharing the inspiration to live passionately, the power to create a sui-generis lifestyle, and the belief in personally transforming our reality to realize our dreams. You know, the little shit. 

Lastly, I have a favor to ask. In the coming months, please write me feedback to let me know what you think. And if you read a post that you think someone else might enjoy, please share the love! 

It’s always been hard for me to ask for help, especially involving something akin to self-promotion. It feels super uncomfortable. But I just read a great quote on a friend’s blog today……

“Those who can ask without shame are viewing themselves in collaboration with—rather than in competition with—the world.” -Amanda Palmer, The Art of Asking

….. and it motivated me to put ego aside, step outside of my comfort zone, and just ask already. Bam, it’s that easy, right? Because you know what, I want to be in collaboration with the world.

And I want to be in collaboration with you!
