In this blog, I want to give you an insight into my work as a content creator.
In this sense, I am a solopreneur in the process of setting up a start-up. Among other things, a Chromebook with Chrome OS will serve as the basis for this.
I purchased my first Chromebook in 2017. It was pretty cheap compared to some Windows laptops. I just wanted to test what Chrome OS was all about. To my surprise, I was immediately hooked. Despite the low price, it ran incredibly fast. While Chrome OS had fewer features at the time than it does today, it had the most important things you need as an average person at home. Simply great! 😉
Since then, I’ve tested a wide variety of devices and kept trying new things. Web apps, Chrome apps, Android apps, and Linux apps. What’s exciting, though, is that you can do quite a bit with Chrome OS, and it’s as easy to use and set up as a new phone! Even advanced and professionals can do countless tasks with Linux apps, for example. But then, it can get a bit more complex in some cases. Even software developers now use Chromebooks as their work devices!
Since October 2021, I’ve been traveling the world non-stop as a digital nomad and working remotely. Of course, I have a Chromebook and a tablet with Chrome OS with me. I want to use both privately, but also professionally for the creation of my digital content. So, I want to develop step by step to an even better Chrome OS expert and pass on my experience! You can benefit from that here, too! 😀
Digital content creation
My digital content is around Chrome OS, travel, and remote working on various channels. 😉
In addition to my Chrome OS devices, I also have an Apple MacBook Air 13″ M1 running a Windows 11 VM via Parallels. On macOS, I edit some of my videos, photos, images, and designs to make them look professional. Even though I might do this entirely on Chrome OS professionally in the future, I need Windows and macOS to create some content describing how to switch from either system to Chrome OS. For comparisons, the same is true. 🙂
However, Adobe announced Photoshop on the Web (Beta) at Adobe Max 2021. In other words, Adobe will be working with Google to optimize Photoshop for Chrome, and therefore Chromebooks. So, this is all not hot air! 😉 There are already excellent alternatives to the Adobe Creative Cloud tools available on Chrome OS, but as I learned throughout the last years: professionals want to have the original, where they put so much effort in and couldn’t switch that easy from.
So yet, even I’m not able to create this content completely on Chrome OS. 🙂
As a fan of Chrome OS, here’s how I plan to add value for personal and self-employed folks:
- Videos on YouTube
- Courses on Udemy
- T-shirt and sticker designs for merchandising
In this blog, I will discuss how this can be done in a variety of ways on Chrome OS.
My vision is to get you excited about Google’s Chrome OS and make your life easier with it in your startup.

Also, I will describe everything around using the example of some services, but of course, even naming alternatives that I use myself or have just evaluated:
- Accounting systems
- Digital mailboxes
- Digital invoice management (such as GETMYINVOICES)
- Tax declaration software or apps
- Cyber insurance
- Creating documents and e-books using Google G Suite as business software
- Project management tools (such as Wrike)
- The equipment I use (hardware and software) such as cameras, microphones, lighting, photo editing, video editing, etc. and how to integrate them under Chrome OS.
- Blogging with WordPress (such as Raidboxes)
