New Direction(s)

There's nothing quite like a gleeful reference to a relatively fantastic new television show.

So, when I stopped posting here last, it was because I was going to start a new website. Yay! Saving For Serenity - how to achieve personal finance bliss. Well, I must have gotten there, because with the whole getting married thing, I stopped having the time or energy to write for the site, and sadly, I have not been able to regain the motivation to continue.

So I sold the site. Yep, my online digitally created property has worth. Enough so that someone was willing to give me actual dollars for it.

So where to now? I love to write, and I want to continue writing. I have been offered a job writing once a week for a different personal finance site, which I will probably take, and I'm thinking about writing about other things. Maybe I'll get back into writing for Associated Content. I've forgotten about them, but they obviously haven't forgot about me, because they keep giving me $1.50 every three months or so.

So, we'll see where this whole thing goes from here.

Saving For Serenity - New Site, Same Direction

A few days ago my website, Saving For Serenity, launched.

Saving For Serenity is the extension of what I have been writing about here, on blog.alan.schram. It is a personal finance blog where I attempt to help you establish financial freedom, something that I've been writing about. The word "serenity" means an absence of mental stress or anxiety. In this case, it means bringing one's finances to a point where it is not causing mental stress or anxiety. It's the goal, the ethos, the direction of Saving For Serenity.

I've written more about what Saving For Serenity is all about here. So if you're interested in finding a peace, or a state of serenity with your finances, please follow along as I attempt to achieve it for myself.

Also, don't forget to update your bookmarks, RSS feeds, links, and all that other interweb goodness that comes with a new site.

See you over there.

For those of you that don't understand what this post is about, it means that yes, I am using Saving For Serenity as my new blog, and will not be posting on this one anymore. Just for you, Tony.

Weekend Respite

In the month of March, I posted at least 5 times a week, at or around 6AM everyday. So far this month, that has not been the case. Here's why.

In the last week, I have had a computer die, got a temporary old laptop from Jordan Shaw, ordered a new macbook, got the new macbook, and started the process of launching a new website (or two). Oh, and I'm also trying to move in the next two weeks.

That's right, the personal finance blog is going to its own domain, and its own host, very soon. I just need the weekend (of which I have four days) to finalize some technical stuff, and then I'll link to it from here. I'm very excited to start a year long project into the world of personal finance blogging. It's going to be great.

I apologize for not posting regularly. It shall resume next week.
