The Reality Blog


Wealthy Web Writer’s Reality Blogger for 2019 is going to take you on a unique journey.

Andrew Murray has traded the daily grind of a 9 to 5 job for a life on the road. He and his wife Peta spend their days exploring Australia’s wide-open spaces, solitude and isolation. They’re experienced remote travelers, living a simple life on the road. They travel, work, and live in their 4×4 truck camper.

This year, Andrew plans to build his Money-Making Website Top Wire Traveller to the point where it provides a regular income… enough to sustain their lifestyle on the road.

And he’s going to share his progress every step of the way. From the goals he sets to the things he tries to the successes and the setbacks.

Watch for a new Reality Blog update each Friday, when Andrew will share his latest accomplishments, his newest insights, his current challenges, and much more.

The Reality Blog comes straight from a writer just like you. Connect with Andrew in the comments of his posts to bounce ideas off him, share roadblocks with him, and celebrate your achievements.
