Celebrating One Year Of Being Free From Office Work

...Technically over one year and three months, but who's counting? So when I'm not ignoring this, my personal blog, I'm posting up a storm over at three other sites and, before I start up here again, I'd like to give them their proper due. So bear with as I show off a few of my favorite stories from the last month or so.

Just do understand that when I blog--as Editor at Jaunted.com, and almost two years as Contributing Editor at HotelChatter.com as well as a contributor at Racked.com--I put research and time into it and usually my own photos and video. What I'm getting at here is that it's not personal stuff, like some sort of LiveJournal, but work and I've been frustrated lately with those who flat-out plagiarize my articles.

Keep in mind that I do tons of timely and newsy pieces everyday, but the following are the fun features that end up taking off. Now on with the show:
