Welcome badass! We wish we could throw an actual huge launch party, but we know that there is always the right time for everything. So just wait for it.
You’ve just arrived at the place we want you to call home, even though you may not have one. Badass Times is for you. Whether you call yourself a digital nomad, vagabond, traveler, location independent, slowmad, Burner, expat, remote worker, or something else catchy, we got you.
So what’s dealio?
We at Badass Empire were pissed, frankly. Enough is enough. There are all cool nomad tools like NomadList, and big Facebook groups filled with nomads. There are occasional news stories or articles on how people like us live (or how you can, too), but nothing brings it all together.
Instead of waiting for a miracle, we built it.
Badass Times is where you can start and end your nomad day, learn as you go, keep up-to-date, and most importantly, connect with others.
And if you want to be a nomad, here’s where you’ll learn how.
Yup, that’s right! This ain’t just a blog. Badass Times has a built-in-community with social media where you can add friends, publish posts, promote your shit, and brag the heart out. It’s like Facebook plus Medium, but for digital nomads! And this is just the start. We’ll keep you posted on our new features, coming soon.
We’re inviting all of you to share your wisdom, important nomad news, and experiences so that we can all grow together. Say, “HELL YEAH!”
And to help you get involved from the start, we’re announcing a freakin’ dope competition with our launch partner, Skyroam! It’s a neat little device that gives you unlimited internet in 130 countries.
The world’s first Smartspot combines fast, secure 4G LTE WiFi in 130 countries, a remote camera, power bank, and integrated smart assistant into one pocket-sized gadget. Connect, post, charge, email, track, photograph… all without SIMs, roaming fees or contracts. Get WiFi by the day, month or GB. Do more from anywhere with the Skyroam Solis X and 5 days of unlimited WiFi included FREE – a $225 value.
So you won’t have any excuse for not calling your mom/boss/BFF/your option because “the connection is shit.”
Tempted? Let’s rock’n’roll!
We want you to write a story on Badass Times. You’ll then share it as far and wide as possible. The article with the most views when the competition ends is the winner. We send you a shiny new Skyroam Solis X. You blush, scream “FUCK YEEEEEEAAAH!”, jump up and down, and do some ecstatic dancing, as you unbox it and get that sweet, sweet unlimited internet in your life. Even in the middle of the desert.
Here are the instructions:
- Read our guidelines. Find out how to create your Badass Times profile, learn about our writing style, and submit your story.
- Then, share the shit out of that thing once we’ve approved it. The quicker you submit, the more time you’ll have to share. Boss up!
We won’t necessarily approve every post. We’re not just looking for any old crap, like “5 ways to become a nomad.” We’re looking for originality and authenticity.
So, go get shit done! If you are curious, here’s more about Skyroam and the competition.
The Boring Legal Bit
- Skyroam offers one Skyroam Solis X and five daypasses (each daypass gives 24 hours of unlimited internet) to the author of the most popular post.
- We determine the most popular post by looking at the unique readers, so sitting there refreshing your own screen won’t push you further up the ranks. Nor will having your friends do the same.
- The competition runs until 11 pm on Monday, August 10, 2020 (UPDATE: we decided to extend it till the 24th of August, so crack on if you haven’t yet!). The winner will be ratified and chosen before 11 pm on Tuesday, August 11, 2020. All times are in UK/Lisbon time zone.
- You must create a Badass Times profile using a valid email address to create a story. We won’t accept stories that don’t fit Badass Times, so following our editorial guidelines is the best way to make sure yours is up to scratch.
- If we cannot contact the winner and receive their full postal address within 24 hours, we reserve the right to select the second most popular post and offer the prize to that winner instead. If they don’t reply, we’ll go to the third, and so on.
- If you are the winner, your shiny new Skyroam will be sent to you within 28 days after the competition ends.
- For any questions on the competition, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
That’s it! Go crush it, and as Jay Rock puts it, “Win, win, win, win! Fuck everything else!”
