It’s no secret that we love our job. Starting our blog and becoming digital nomads was the best decision we’ve ever made. We love it so much that our goal in life is now to get more people to start their own blogs, find remote work and travel more often.

But, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. We have numerous posts on this website that show the positive side of online work, but there are some cons as well. In my opinion, the upsides far outweigh the downsides!

In this post, I’m going to share with you the pros and cons of being a digital nomad. I hope that after you read this, you’ll have a more honest, transparent picture of what remote work may look like for you.

What is a Digital Nomad?

Basically, a digital nomad is someone who uses technology, namely the internet, to earn money online while having the freedom to travel and live anywhere in the world. This simple definition is usually enough to convince someone to get into this lifestyle.

What could be better? Working when you want. Choosing your own hours. Working for yourself. Working from anywhere in the world. Making good money. Being free.

It all sounds so great, and believe me… it is.

Our digital nomad life revolves around our blog. We started this blog in 2012 and after about a year it started earning a bit of money. After less than 2 years it was earning enough to pay for our travels and today the blog is earning nearly quadruple what our well-paying jobs in Canada ever did.

We chose the blogging route, but there are literally hundreds of travel jobs and even more remote jobs that you can find. If you don’t enjoy writing, taking photos and sharing things online, there are plenty of other ways to make money on the road. 

One recommended remote work job is to become a proofreader. Work from anywhere there’s a great wifi connection, learn about interesting topics, make your own hours, and earn a good income.

Taking a proofreading and editing course is the best way to bulk up your resume and will give you the best chance of securing jobs. Have a look at this highly-rated course, which is currently 15% off and offers guaranteed work.

As long as you’re utilizing the world wide web to make a living while travelling and living around the world, you’re technically a digital nomad. Read on for the advantages and disadvantages of being a digital nomad.
