A Brief Blog Profile: Almost Fearless

by Thomas Hynes


Almost Fearless is one of those blogs that's about what it's about, but it's really also about so much more. Ok, that was confusing. Hear me out. It's a travel blog. The author, Christine, lives abroad. Her and her husband (and their baby, Cole) are constantly traveling. So, yeah, it's a travel blog. But it's a lot more than that. Or, anyway, that doesn't tell it all.

Almost Fearless is the story of a woman who quit her corporate job and sold everything to be with her man overseas. She actually sold her stuff. I love that! People talk a big game about wanting to sell everything and see the world. And by people, I of course mean myself. I wish I had the nerve to do something like that. (Don't you?) Well, Christine has done that. She is, as they say, living the dream. Now, look, this is a serious travel blog, too. Here are posts on the Thai Flying Lantern Festival and Backpacking Through SE Asia With a Toddler if you don't believe me. But I'm more interested in the post about how her husband lost his job and the fear they felt at the prospect of his lost income, while simultaneously embracing the uncertainty of what lay ahead for them and their family. That's not unique to the travel industry. That's something everyone encounters at one point or another. And that's what sets this blog apart.

Also, I really love the name of this blog, and all that it implies. It's ok to be almost fearless. We can move incrementally away from that which restricts us. We can do this in parts. It doesn't have to be all at once. Almost is ok. It's a baby step; an inch closer to a more perfect life, or at least, the life we want.

News Widget

Our widget allows you to display PR Newswire content on your site with very little back-end programming required.  You not only get the headline, but also the body of text of the news release, keeping the user on your site at all times.  In order to do so, the difference between our Widget and other widgets is at the end of the sign-up process, you will be provided with two pieces of source code -- one for the page where the Widget itself will be displayed and one for the pages that will display the body of text of each news release.  In addition, the sign-up process allows you to have 100 percent control over every aspect of the Widget's appearance, so that the Widget can blend in fully with the look and feel of your site. Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
