Time To Think

time to thinkPacking has given me a lot of time to think (it doesn’t take a whole lot of brain power to put things into boxes) which I haven’t had lately to consider more where I want this blog and the main site to go. As I mentioned earlier, I haven’t been happy with where things currently are and want to make some changes. Here are some of the issues I’ve been struggling with and thinking about:

1) A post over at Adult ADD & Money got me thinking about how to make a personal finance blog entertaining enough for the average person to come and want to read. Basically, how do you make personal finance entertaining? It takes a special skill to take the everyday personal finance

    Thanks for the mention and good luck with the packing.

    When I first started my blog, the goal was to provide adults with ADD quality and helpful information about personal finances. While I do not plan on developing an e-book, I am planning on developing a seperate area where adults with ADD can get the basic tips and information in dealing with their finances. I think that this will give me the freedom to experiment more with my blog and “attempt” to provide both entertaining and informative content.

    Your comment is most appreciated. I’m still trying to find my voice and how I want to write to help distribute information. It’s a challenge that I will always be trying to improve upon, but taking note of how I can improve on what I’m currently doing is something that is good for me to think about.

    I am not a blogger. I found your site through FW and since then it’s on my Icheckthiseveryday list.

    I looked in a LOT of financial blogs and websites because I was searching for simplicity in dealing with financial problems.

    What made me stop at your site was your “HOW TO” approach to a different aspects of finances, if you will, from the point of view of the ordinary person, not a financial guru or expert.

    I was hooked on your “Daily Challenge” e-mails. THis is EXACTLY what I was looking for. A simple , step-by-step, one thing at a time approach. I printed all of the daily challenges and keep them in a separate binder(and continue to do this with Daily Savings Tips. I do hope that one day you will be able to come back to the Daily Challenges though.)

    I was so impressed by the results that I sent your site and forwarded your e-mails to all my friends and relatives

    I think what I’m trying to say this step-by-step PRACTICAL approach how to deal with EVERYDAY financial problems would definitely attract new readers.

    It definitely worked for me and I have a cable and car insurance bills to prove it:)

    Aldeya,

    Thank you for your comments. I don’t think there can be a bigger compliment from any reader than if they feel the information is worth passing on to others they know.

    The comments are good for me to hear. I do like doing the financial challenges although they do take some time to write – I’m hoping once the move is over and I’m settled in that I can begin those up again as the step by step process is one that I get requests for quite a bit.

    More box packing and thinking ahead…

    I just came across your blog and have enjoyed reading through it. I don’t think you need to make any changes, but am interested to see what you are planning.
