Looking for some ideas. Basically, I'm going to without a home in a month or two without much money. This is not a suddenly homeless situation, because I have a couple of fallback options. But I also have another, computer-related option I've been thinking about.
Basically, the idea is too sell most of my stuff, buy a van or SUV, and hit the road with my dog, my cameras, and a laptop. Instead of just driving around mumbling to myself, I'd turn this into a social media project and try to earn some money through content creation, odd jobs, and looking for cheap antiques I could flip on eBay.
Or to put in the most crass terms, I'm looking to monetize a cute dog to support a nomadic, e-begging lifestyle while I look for a new place to settle down.
I've started researching this, but I'd love to hear some ideas from other people. Does this sound doable? What's the best approach to getting mobile internet access? Do you know anyone who's done something like this successfully? Should I break down and get a Facebook account just to broaden my social media presence? Would I be better off with a laptop and various cameras, or should I just get a high-end smartphone to handle all the shooting and editing? Is it worth trying to get a small RV rather than a van?
Again, this isn't an emergency situation. I'm just brainstorming a possible content-creation project, and I could use some other brains to review the idea. Thanks!
