I recently asked y’all if changing my blogs name and moving the content to a new blog was smart or dumb. I was feeling like my complete name is actually not such a great idea for a personal finance specific blog. As I have other writing interests and want to grow my portfolio in those directions, I was thinking that using this site for those projects may make more sense. I worried though, that switch blog domains would lose me followers and throw a wrench in the work I’ve already done to promote myself and my writing in the personal finance world.
I’m happy to announce that I have reached a decision: I am going to change my blog domain! I think it’s the right move for me. As I take steps forward with my writing I want to be able to delineate between my categories more fluidly. I think a separate blog that is solely dedicated to my personal finance adventures is what’s called for.
So what exactly does that mean for the time being? Well, I have to get a new domain name, register it and move all my content over. Woof. That’s going to be a lot of work! I don’t know exactly how long it will take but there will be a slight disturbance in my postings. I imagine it’ll be radio silence for a little longer than my usual 2-3 days as I figure all this stuff out.
I hope to have it done by the end of next week. Trying to find the time to sit down and figure out how to do this and then actually do this is going to be tricky. I wish I had a weekend off from catering to hunker down but I am particularly broke this month. The drop in my income+paying off my final loan balance+paying my car insurance added up very quickly!
It’s important to me that all my readers know that I am very grateful to y’all for finding you way to my corner of the internet and sharing your stories and thoughts with me. This move is designed so that I can be more involved with y’all and more clear in my direction on each site.
So please stick around for the new direction but have some patience if it takes me a little while. I promise I am dedicated to making this happen!
