Q:  What inspired you to start your blog?

A: The blog you see on joshuacintron.com is born out of a desire to work from home as a freelance writer. I stumbled on writing after I became an instructor. I realized my talent stringing together words and thought, “Hey, why not offer my writing services to others?” After dabbling in content mills, I decided to start my own blog.

Q:  What is the overall theme of your blog?

A: No one particular theme exists. I tackle a myriad of subjects that peak my interest. Whether money, society, relationships or education, I construct blog posts to stimulate readers into thinking for themselves.

Q:  Your biography says that you are an online professor. On what subject are you a professor?

A: I teach college courses in the business and public administration or public policy subject area.

Q:  What is the biggest mistake people make when enrolling for online classes?

A: The biggest mistake I see students make enrolling in online classes is they view the classroom as a traditional course, where learning takes place in a classroom-centered environment. Online learning is student-centered, where discipline, time management and the ability to weather challenges of life are essential to survival. Online learning requires a revamping of the way many of us understand college.  I talk about this in my book, What to Expect When You Enroll in an Online Class available on Amazon.com.

Q:  What blog post of yours got the most hits and why do you think it was the most popular?

5 Life Changing Tips for Minorities. It strikes a chord with many minorities in that why do minorities continue to lag behind many others in terms of social-economic status? Is it what many fail to learn growing up? Is it a result of employing traditional mindsets of work versus education?

Q:  Who are some of your favorite bloggers?

A: Blog Tyrant and Make a Living Writing. As a freelance writer, competition is fierce and pay is low. Therefore, reading the two sites listed provide valuable information to continue my passion of writing.

Q:  What kind of day job do you have and how does it affect your writing?

A: I work for local enforcement in a budget capacity. I complete my writing at home, on the road, in the car or waiting in line. I am always creating content in my mind wherever I am at.

Q:  What do you like about living in California?

A: I like the perfect weather, ability to do a multitude of things, entertainment, the hustle and bustle of 10-million people in 30-40 square miles and visiting the mountains or beach in a minute’s notice.

Q:  What about it would you change?

A: Traffic, high cost of living, high real estate and grocery prices.

Q:  What trends in blogging annoy you?

A: I am annoyed at individuals who hide behind the cloak of obscurity of the Internet and degrade others for making a comment, opinion or observation on a topic. Be a man or woman and show your face. If one firmly believes his or her disposition, why not engage in healthy conversation?
