I Need To Write Something

I need to write something, but it’s been a bit of a crazy week and I’m pretty burnt out today. Instead of doing the usual (picking a topic, thinking about it for a while, and then writing) I’m going to give an update on a few things that are going on in my life and here on the site.

I don’t talk much about me (except the occa­sional story) so unless you know me in real life you probably don’t know a lot about me.

For one, I’m 25. That shouldn’t be a shocker; I use to have that info on the about page. I talked about it a bit around my birthday as well.

Since I gave up pizza delivery, I’ve been making coffee drinks at a small inde­pen­dent franchise (not Starbucks, but similar). Like pizza delivery, I’ve already learned quite a bit but you’ll have to wait until a later post to learn about that.

Besides making coffee, I’ve been writing all over the web. I’m staff writing at two other financial blogs: Faith & Finance and Personal Finance By The Book. They’re both great sites that you should check out. They’re like my site, only less aggres­sive and with a more obvious Christian leaning.

Faith & Finance is a bit more big scale. Tim, the main guy, distances himself a bit more in his writing. He’s really good for money tips and obscure (and helpful) knowledge about things like when stamp prices are going up or when the best TV deals are coming.

Personal Finance by the Book is run by Joe. It’s similar to Entre­pre­Life in that it’s a smaller site where one guy gives his thoughts and opinions on money and finances.

Adding my voice to these blogs has been a lot of fun! I like getting write a bit outside my norm. It’s helped me develop my voice and intro­duced me to a lot of great people. If you want to have me guest post for your blog (it doesn’t have to be about money) shoot me an email.

In other news, A Stress Free Christmas is no longer for sale. The page is still up, but you can’t buy it anymore. If you missed it, send me an email and I’ll make sure you’re the first to know when I relaunch it later this year.

Besides that, I’m still working on selling Grandma’s house. Nothing to report, really. I’ll probably have a post about it next week, but most of what’s going on is boring: filling out paper work, deciding on a price, getting the relator a key, etc.

All-in-all I really enjoy where my life is now. There are some unique chal­lenges, but it’s the kind of stuff I enjoy.

PS — Read a few more personal thoughts at Personal Finance by the Book where I wrote the recent post, Words Are Like Wind.

What’s going on in your life?
