Just a Big List of Interesting Posts

 

I’ve reached a milestone here at Exile Lifestyle: 200 posts on the site since I started.

And though a few of those were guest posts, and I’ve written more than a few guest posts on other sites, I still wanted to commemorate the event with a little roundup of notable scribblings from the history of the blog.

For example, I get asked all the time about how to start up a blog and establish a brand and voice. I want to show you this as evidence that it took me a little while to get my style established, and in fact my very first post was incredibly bulky, tiresome and overly-verbose.

Below is just a big list of other posts that caught my eye as I ran down the archive (for one reason or another), and if you have only started recently reading the blog, you may find something new there.

These are in chronological order, with the oldest at the top, so you’ll be able to see a bit of evolution along the way (I hope!).

  1. Congrats!
    Over the last week I’ve been reading through your blog, starting at the beginning. Haven’t quite finished yet, but am nearing my subscription point. There has definitely been an evolution as you wrote and it has been interesting seeing you find your voice.

    -raises glass-
    Here’s to the next 200!

  3. Congratulations, Colin! It’s got to be cool for you to look back and view the mad amount of content you’ve put out. Valuable stuff, man- I always dig reading your views on the world. Thanks, and keep ‘em comin’!

    • Thanks Nate!

      I’m quite fond of that one, as well. Taking the bad and making it good…one of the better, more practical skills I’ve learned while on the road.

  4. I guess I have good timing! ha ha
    I stumbled on your blog about two days ago. :]
    I’ve already read quite a few of your entries. This one is great for exilelifestyle noobs such as myself. :P

    Good work.

  5. Did you get a haircut (not sure if this is an old photo)? Btw, are you returning to your parents’ place for Christmas?

    • Older photo (from Argentina) :)

      Yup, I’m actually at my parents’ place right now, and will be here for the holidays (though I’ll be in Chicago for New Year’s Eve).

  6. Aloha,
    Thank you for sharing your life experiences and thoughts on living a clutter free life. Clutter free in a sense of mental and physical baggage that doesn’t produce the happiness we thought they brought. You are awesome.
