Serious question. How do you handle a job that essentially could keep you busy at all hours of the day (even with a JJ to help). Do you have hours that you shut off your phone/computer and tune out the entire site? Does your wife sometimes go crazy when you are busy posting a "SMOKING HOT!!" deal when she's waiting for you to put the kids to bed? Would you recommend/not-recommend such a job to others?

(This is essentially a question for any time-sensitive-topic blogger or online news writer. It's just that Dan has been doing it successfully for a long time, so I would ask him specifically.)

Agreed. How on earth is your wife so accommodating? Granted she's not a stuck up city girl but sometimes I wonder. The same goes for @jj1000 since he's also at it pretty much 24/6.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

When you travel with the family on business booked with award points (especially when there is a very limited award availability per flight), all the family is on business or do you split between J and Y ?

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

I'm pretty sure Dan's kids are convinced there are only 10 rows max on an airplane ;)
