Blogging is an interesting thing. For one, it’s considered a “side hustle” for me, though it’s a full-time job for many. And even though it’s a hobby for me, it feels like a full-time job sometimes with all the social media stuff, content creation, reading and learning, etc…
My favorite part so far about being a blogger is connecting with bloggers and other people alike from across the world. I haven’t been getting as much traffic to this site as I’d like until recently and I contribute a majority of that to interacting with people that are in the personal finance profession or who are at least interested in it. With that, I’ve been getting to know other bloggers and have engaged with them on their blog or through person emails. Not only have I learned a ton from them, I’ve also found myself reshaping how I think about a variety of topics – which I think is the most important part about life – personal growth.
Blog Posts I’ve Been Reading
There are a few blogs/bloggers that I’ve been fortunate enough to engage with the most and who have taught me a lot of the past few months. Here’s my list of blog posts I’ve been reading:
