I’m reading a large number of finance blogs from around the world and I have already found my favourites. However, I’ve expanded my network to read more new and exciting articles. Other finance bloggers have got impressive writing skills, which, simply by reading their articles, has improved my own skill set. What Impresses Me? I like to read controversial or topical content which takes an existing problem and opens the door to discussion. Many people may debate over the recent SSE price increase however, my view isn’t about who’s right or wrong – both points are valid. The critical element […]
My goal last week was to diversify my reading and find new finance blogs. I found some crackers which will be added to my regular reading lists!! The overall objective of reading other people’s finance blogs is to 1. Enjoy the content 2. Learn about other techniques for writing 3. Find out what’s news We can all learn from others and there are some incredible finance writers out there. I’m privileged to have read some incredibly well-written and honest pieces of literature. People who have experienced similar financial troubles to myself, through to people who have managed their money extremely well and […]
As well as writing about finance and debt on a regular basis, I also enjoy reading articles from other finance writers. The content inspires me to write about subjects that I feel everyone already knows about, like, Can you really write off debt? Also, it’s just fun to get finance information from other finance based writers. Here’s some amazing articles I read this week. Many of them will be from the States, but they’re a great read nonetheless. Credit Card Debt Is For Losers: I tweeted about this and commented too. It’s a great insight into how self-defined “loser” Kathleen […]
Sorry folks, it’s been another turbulent couple of weeks trying to update the website. I’d changed the website around a month ago because there were issues which required an update but like most things in life, once you open the lid you have to delve in an solve the problems.
I started Debt Advice Resource on the 9th August 2012. Over the past three months I’ve made some excellent friends and personal finance colleagues and it’s been my pleasure to write on the website. This is a short thank you to everybody who reads the blog and helps promote our writing around the web. Your support is very much appreciated. Yakezie Challenge I originally started writing for myself, however part of the appeal was completing the Yakezie challenge. For those who don’t know, the Yakezie challenge is a 6 month undertaking where a person writing about personal finance will write […]
I’m starting a new section on my blog. I’m writing about articles I’ve read this week and sharing them with readers of my own blog. I get a lot of inspiration and guidance from other blogs and personal finance writers so from time to time I want to give back and share their excellent work. I’m a great believer that we all learn through life and experiences. Other bloggers have different experiences and with an open mind we can all benefit from their knowledge. Articles I read this week The articles on other personal finance blogs I read this week […]
I started Debt Advice Resource with simple objectives and I’ve used these recently to help me make a decision on a content writing offer I received. My objectives when starting Debt Advice Resource were: To help people avoid the same mistakes I made. If people were in a difficult financial place, I wanted to give them the information and knowledge that I accrued during my time deciding on the best debt solution. To “pay” something back. It was important I didn’t just go bankrupt and not share what happened, why it happened and my thoughts on how it could be […]
OK, so i’ve created my blog / website and i’m going to share information about bankruptcy and being in debt. I’m ready to start. I’m focussed and eager to get underway. Then, I realise, what’s the point if nobody can read the information. What if nobody finds my information and I’m unable to even help one person. It would be a waste. The Yakezie Network I’ve read lots of blogs over the past few years, especially during the period of going bankrupt and when I was in search of useful information. Within the blogs I read I constantly saw the […]
