Over at FreelancePF, the blog for my freelance writing business, I have started a new challenge, of sorts. I am going to attempt to read and review all 99 of the “Personal MBA’s” official reading list. I may not be a real MBA when I am done, but it should provide a better education than staying at the Holiday Inn.
Feel free to check out the FreelancePF blog and follow along as I attempt to learn all that important “business stuff” they neglected to teach us lawyers in law school.
For those of you who are interested in such things and are not already aware, the FreelancePF blog focuses on my recently started freelance business, which I began when I sold my former personal finance blog: Broke Professionals. Aside from the Personal MBA challenge, on FreelancePF I will continue to blog regularly on FreelancePF about the ups and downs of my business, freelance work in general, and personal finance as a niche.
Anyway, since I am running multiple blogs I simply figured I would let everyone know about that new feature, which will run every Friday starting April 29 and until 2013, God willing.
Branding and Future Site Content
On a final note, part of Broke Professionals “brand” that I strived for was the idea of a personal blog with “television style” regular programming. By that I mean that I created with my wife various reoccurring features for the site. Some features such as our painful attempt to go a month without eating any food outside our apartment were very successful. Others, like our attempt to have our dog randomly pick stocks and go up against the S&P 500 were flops (no offense Sophie). Still, I think that regular “programming” was part of what made our former site a relative success in such a short period of time.
Thus far, I have not gone that route on Debt Payer. I would appreciate some feedback on whether I should start coming up with “theme” or recurring “television style” programming on DebtPayer; and if so, what types of things you would be interested in reading about.
Have a pleasant holiday weekend!
