There are many different reasons why we may want to get away from the noise of our daily lives and there are countless ways to help you do so. This blog is my way of doing that. I live in Granada in the south of Spain, write songs, teach English and now write this blog.
My name is Jason and although I only started this blog on 3 October 2014, it has already become an essential daily ritual to post and connect with readers and other bloggers. I have enjoyed writing it, getting positive feedback from people and generally interacting with lots of interesting people online. I’ve also enrolled on an online blogging course as you can always learn something new, can’t you?
So with this in mind, I’m committing to writing a new post every day for the next 30 days in line with the WordPress Blogging 101 series.
After living in London for 17 years, Mrs AwayFromTheNoise and I moved to Granada in the south of Spain in January 2014. It’s been a goal of ours to live somewhere warm, beautiful and interesting for a long time, so it’s been lovely having made that happen. In addition to writing this blog, I travel a lot around the south of Spain, teach English locally and write songs on my slightly battered acoustic guitar and laptop. But perhaps the question here is ‘why should you read this blog’?
On this blog, I plan to just enjoy writing about pretty much whatever inspires me, usually based on things I read, see or hear while out and about, which I’ve just realized is pretty much the same process I have for songwriting. Subjects include music, travel, minimalism, food, coffee, life as a foreigner in the south of Spain and generally escaping to a place of of tranquility because it’s a beautiful place to be – all of which I hope give people food for thought. So If you like the sound of that and you’re looking for a little inspiration or insight into life in general, then this could be the blog for you…
I have four primary objectives for this blog by 30 November 2014 :
– publish a post every day
– interact online with lots of new people
– have a total of 250 subscribers to the mailing list
– enjoy the process…
I hope this blog helps you to get you away from the noise.
Thanks for popping by…
