It’s time to step away from the finance game a little bit and take some time to talk about blogging. I have come to realize some pretty awesome things about blogging over the last six months. I’m a relatively young blogger, I guess you could say I’m still in my infant stages, but unlike a 2 year old I don’t poop my pants.
As I reflect on Punch Debt’s first six months of life, I can’t help but make some observations. The first, and most surprising, is that my most popular content generally has very little to do with finance. Instead of talking about annuities and different insurance options, it appears you all tend to be more involved in posts on why old people piss me off, my spending habits, and old school mad libs. Basically, the PERSONAL side of personal finance is what people want. This makes sense to me as all of the blogs I follow are very unique to each blogger and not the typical watered down “Roth IRA vs 401K” lameness.
I’m not gonna lie. When I started this blog, I thought I was going to provide a great service to America and educate the twenty somethings on what it means to be financially responsible. Well it turns out, as much as I like to think I am helping some young adults, I’m the one that’s getting most of the help. I have blogged about career options, whether or not I should sell my motorcycle, and how much student loan debt I should pay off. It’s amazing to me the response you faithful commenters give me when I ask for a little insight. It kind of turns me on…in a totally non-sexual/creepy way. So thank you everyone for continuing to help me navigate my life 🙂
Quite possibly the coolest thing about blogging is the internet friendships you get to make. I totally remember making fun of my sister for being friends with internet people she had never met. The whole concept of forming friendships with people you never met just seemed awkward. Well if being friends with strangers is awkward then you can officially call me “Awkward Ninja” from now on. I heart getting emails/comments/and tweets from my fellow bloggers. Not only do I enjoy getting things, but I have really enjoyed scoping out other PF blogs and dropping some comment love their way. If Punch Debt In The Face had a facebook page, I would totally friend request all of you.
Okay, I will stop my rambling today. Thanks for taking the time to stop by the site yet again. I don’t think this post really solicits much of a response from readers, but I still want to hear from you. So, you sexy little pirate hookers…What are your weekend plans? Drop me a line and let me know what you got planned ’cause I would totally love to
stalk you hear about it.
