Hello, dear reader of YourOnlineRevenue.com!
Today I published a videoblog called, “How to Live in Bulgaria as a Digital Nomad?” In the video, you can see my life in Bulgaria. It shows some benefits of being a digital nomad and earning money online.
You have a freedom to travel around the world. You can live in cheap places that are still amazing and would cost a lot in your home country.
How to Live in Bulgaria as a Digital Nomad? – Video Blog
Is Bulgaria a Good Place to Live?
People ask questions like, “Is it cheap to live in Bulgaria? How much does it cost to live in Bulgaria? Is Bulgaria safe? Is Bulgaria in the EU?”
Based on my experience and what I have discussed with many other people, I have come to a following conclusion.
Bulgaria is a much better place to live for a foreigner than its reputation.
Bulgaria is a cheap place but still there many great things: delicious food, beautiful women, relaxing nature with mountains and much more.
Yes, Bulgaria is an Eastern European country and the country isn’t as highly developed as some countries in the Western Europe but it has its own benefits. For people who make money online (like myself) living in Bulgaria is way cheaper than living in expensive countries like Switzerland or Norway.
The Weather in Bulgaria
Bulgaria is also located better, in my opinion than Nordic countries. I have lived the most of my life so far in my home country Finland where the most of the year is pretty cold. The Autumn and Winter are pretty tough if you know what I’m talking about! 😉
In Bulgaria you have a comfortable Autumn weather even now in November. It’s around 10-15 degrees during the day and the sun stays much longer than in the North. Of course, Spring and Summer are even warmer and more bright.

Do You Want Have a Freedom to Travel Around the World?
I had seen people on the Internet who make money online. Some of them made even +$10,000/month and it seemed pretty amazing. My mentor Nathaniell Brenes explained that he started looking for opportunities while he was living in China. The idea of earning dollars on the Internet while living in a cheap country sounded exciting.
He found an opportunity, started working on it and exceeded all his goals. Then he started teaching also other people how they could earn money on the Internet. I landed on his blog one day in 2015 and started studying what he was doing.
He introduced me to a website and a training center called Wealthy Affiliate. He explained that their training had helped him step-by-step to make money on the Internet. I was a bit skeptical but I knew that Nathaniell and other people inside the community were making good money with their websites.
One 20-year-old man in Wealthy Affiliate made big money online by writing a blog about computers and all the equipment. One lady started a mom blog and she has earned very well. I realized that there were numerous ways to make money online.
I went through WA training and put it powerfully into action. Nowadays I can say that I am officially a “digital nomad” and I make my living on the Internet. I would like to help you as well. Click the link below to get started.
