A few years back I jumped into the blogging world and gave it a whirl. I was able to prove two things to myself: I enjoy online marketing and search optimization, but I am not great at blogging. I focused a lot on the technical aspects of running a blog, and less on writing.
It is hard for me to commit to a blog in a specific niche, especially when I am not sure I have anything truly unique to offer, but here I am anyway. Despite my reservations, I have convinced myself that this effort will serve me in a few ways:
- As a writing exercise to keep my writing skills sharp (maybe I can finally train myself to stop excessively using commas?)
- A place for me to write down my more lengthy musings and retain ownership of the result as well as reap the benefits (if any) of publishing for myself
- Motivation towards financial independence
- Another experiment in generating passive income through blogging
I also hope to write useful content for anyone who happens to come by – I really enjoy discussing, reading, and writing about money, personal finance, and retirement. So here I am, musing about monetary topics. Wish me luck!
