So you found my blog by Googling “living in Alaska,” “how do I make money living in Alaska,” or “jobs in Alaska.”

I’ve received a lot of comments, e-mails, and questions about living in Alaska. It is mysterious place. Growing up in Minnesota, I knew nothing about the state–except where it was and that it was cold. And to be honest, I never imagined myself living in Alaska. I hardly knew anything about the state and had no idea what I was getting myself into. But alas, since 2007, this is where I’ve been living. A lot of people love it here, but it isn’t for everyone.

Here are some of my most popular Alaska-based posts:
