At some point in our lives, we’ve all flirted with the idea of getting on a bike and going where the road takes us. Then you smell the coffee and start working on a social media report on Bikes. Well, as my teammates are gearing up for their short holidays, this report is my way of coping.

Working as a Content Creator has its perks. You can write off the hours you spend on Buzzfeed and 9gag as research. But it also demands a great deal from you.
