What is a digital nomad?
Opinions are divided as to what a digital nomad is exactly. As a digital nomad you are location independent working via the internet. You can be a digital nomad who sets up somewhere else every week, but also that you relocate every few months.
I see myself partly as a nomad and partly as a digital nomad. I live in the Netherlands a few months a year to organize festivals. Since I have no fixed base in the Netherlands, I live as a nomad. The months that I am not in the Netherlands, I mostly live as a digital nomad. In those months I focus on publishing blogs and making money with affiliate marketing through Pinterest.
