Hello! Welcome to Just About Being!

So who is behind this blog, you ask?

I am an online freelancer for 7 years and counting. I have worked in the BPO industry for more than 3 years but eventually decided to go full time with freelancing. At first, I thought I wanted to grow a career in the BPO industry but eventually realized the BPO industry is not for me. I wanted to have more time for myself and I wanted to go to places. So I quit my job and went full time in freelancing.

I have made several blogs before, mostly lifestyle blogs and a photoblog but I never bought a domain name for those blogs. I was able to go to different places in the country but I haven't blogged about them. What a bummer!

Browsing through social media and the internet and seeing successful lifestyle bloggers encouraged me to take blogging seriously. So I took my laptop and made a list of possible names.

I named my blog Just About Being, which came from my initials. That's right, my name is JAB, Josie Ann Bandalan and I'm glad to meet you here. I hope you enjoy joining me in my adventures of being a freelancer, a traveler, and a dreamer.

See you around!
