Hey, I just met you, and this is Lazy... get these fast finance fixes and mail me, maybe?

Vacation from Blogging (and Personal Finance Links)

Written by

Last week I tried an interesting experiment. I decided to not write at all and see what would happen. I expected the to sky to either rain frog or just fall and hit me on the head. Neither happened. It got me thinking, what are the consequences of not writing?

Losing Money? This didn't seem to be the case. One of the days was one of my top 5 or 10 income performing days of the year. Maybe after more than a week, I'd start to see some negative effects to the income from blogging. However, I'm not going to continue on with the experiment... I'd miss not writing too much.

As much as I'd miss the writing, I'd miss the interaction that I get with you, the reader. I paid twice as much attention to comments that I got during the time that I wasn't writing. Fortunately they weren't all comments on my MonaVie post (more than 4700 comments and counting). A lot of them said that they came from Smart Passive Income where Pat mentioned me via his Facebook page as helping out with traffic when he was getting started. I don't use what Bill Belichick calls "My Face" very often, so I would have missed it. Thanks Pat and those who came and commented.

I plan to continue with my usual writing schedule, but a minor announcement that I have set for tomorrow may impact that decision. To make my writing schedule seem even worse, I'm going to follow that up with a guest post. However, it is a good guest post... which is increasingly rare these days.

Until then, here are some personal finance links to tide you over:

  1. Cool experiment! I think I would either feel quilty or very relieved if I went a week without posting something. I guess I’m hooked!

    Thanks for the mention! You quite literally made my day! :)

    Hey LMAM,

    I actually wrote a post that featured you as well, and again it’s all to say thanks for helping my blog get off the ground. You really helped to kick start my blog and now it’s bigger than I ever thought possible, so I definitely owe you one. Hopefully I was able to send you some traffic at least :)

    Hope all is well! Wishing you all the best :)

    Hi LMAM, it is good have you back. I am going to try to guess tomorrow big announcement, are you going to become a Dad?

  4. Jaime had something there…. would be nice to have that kind of big announcement from Lazy Man. If such a glorious event happens, I would be very happy to give LM my wholehearted support and help, as one of his “neighbors” here in the Bay Area. Cheer him on and all that… :)
