About Gip Plaster


I’m Gip Plaster. Yes, that’s my real name.
I’m an Internet entrepreneur making most of my money (at the time this blog was started) as an online bookseller and internet content writer. I’ve also been a professional journalist  — and I’m enjoying my return to writing as a blogger. I’ve always been a writer at heart, and in June 2010, I announced my intention to become a full-time writer again.
I did college and I did the corporate world. I didn’t really like either of them, but I’m very glad I had the experiences. Every moment of my life has been preparation for this moment, and I’m excited to see what comes next.
Follow me as I blog about the many aspects of a simple, deliberate life. We might learn something together to prepare us for our next phases. There’s so much more to life than I’m experiencing now.
