For those of you visiting today after reading my guest post over at Get Rich Slowly (How to Find Budgeting Nirvana with Mint.com), welcome! I hope that you enjoyed the post and find it to be a helpful resource as well.
Before sharing a few thoughts, wanted to first thank J.D. Roth for the opportunity to share my writing on his enormously popular blog, a blog that I’ve followed for several years.
J.D.’s request for new guest posts/reader stories came at the perfect time for me, in mid-December, just as I was reflecting on 2010 and looking forward to 2011 (Note: this is the third key blog post I mentioned in my first post).
When planning for 2011, I decided that a primary goal was to start sharing my writing online…with my first milestone to be a reader story submission for Get Rich Slowly. After submitting a draft in late December, it was only a few days later that I heard back from J.D. with the news that he’d be running my story on February 6th!
His quick response was welcomed for several reasons…
1) I had accomplished my first writing milestone for 2011, far sooner than expected.
2) It provided me with the momentum and encouragement needed to start a blog and to continue focusing on my writing in 2011. After all, I couldn’t squander this tremendous opportunity by having his many followers sent to an empty blog…or even worse…to not have a site for them to visit at all!
With that said, you’ll quickly notice that I’m just getting started here at geoffreylennon.wordpress.com and that (currently) the blog is rather light on content.
Though that’s certainly the case today, I look forward to changing that in the weeks and months to come by regularly posting what I hope will be interesting/entertaining content.
Many thanks for reading! I’d very much welcome your comments/feedback below.
