First, I’ve learned that blogging isn’t as easy as I thought it would be. Yeah, I could blog about my driving home or having lunch at this and that restaurant. I could blog like blogging was traditionally… an online diary. But instead, I decided to follow my passion for personal finance and blog about that topic
Well for one, I find that personal finance blogs are interesting, and I wanted to create such a creation. It’s not being a book author, but kind of close, and I think that that in itself is pretty cool.
Blogging and reading fellow pf blogger’s sites helps me to keep my focus on my own personal finance strategy.
The world is expanding for me. I joined a few clubs, but it’s the Yakezie Challenge that has really been mind blowing. The group includes some incredible talented pf bloggers out there! Both the old stalwarts and the saplings, have some incredible content!
International Blogs, I read blogs such as the monevator.com and www.canadianfinanceblog.com both site offer a unique insites of their country from their eyes. It’s very cool to be learning about each of their countries.
Secondly, I’ve learned that there are more than one way to get to a solution. It’s kind of like mixing colors to create the color green. So while I may have slowly added all colors in perfect proportions, another blogger may choose to add 1 of the colors more quickly and in more quantity, then later get the proportions correct to make the same color green. And then you have other bloggers that choose to go with a different shade of green altogether.
Part of blogging is self discovery, I’ve learned a lot about how I think, what I believe in and the end goals that I want to accomplish.
Blogging is also providing me a rought draft for how to get there.
Thanks for the great ride,
MR – Don
