Here I am. Writing my first legitimate post on a website that I know no one is yet reading. This is particularly odd for me considering I just sold my first blog that was read by 30,000 people a month. And now, here I am, writing to myself. And I guess if you stumbled upon this, I'm writing to you as well.
My first blog, Punch Debt In The Face, was a personal finance blog I created in 2009. I had a ton of student loan debt ($28,000) and needed to find a way to get out of it. My blog served as a personal diary of my journey out of debt and in to financial freedom.
Over the next six years, I would write 1,175 posts for that blog. Be featured on The New York Times. Wall Street Journal. And Forbes to name a few. My wife and I were flown out to appear on the Steve Harvey Show to talk about our personal finances and how we managed our money. No really, we were. Here's photographic evidence...
But after six years of writing about 401k's, savings, debt, and all things personal finance I had nothing left to say. It was time to move on.
And here we are.
It hasn't even been 24 hours since the sale of my personal finance blog, and what am I doing?
It's crazy, and I'm crazy.
My plans for Mid & Mod are simple.
- Post pretty furniture for sale.
- Blog about whatever the heck I want. Sometimes this will be furniture, sometimes this will be about my family, and sometimes it might even be about personal finance.
- Interact with whoever comes my way. Drop a comment. Let me know someone out there is reading this. I'll write back, I pinky promise :)
I look forward to establishing a name for myself in the world of mid century furniture and interior design. Oh, and since I have a kid (and another on the way) I guess that officially makes me a Daddy Blogger, which I hear is a pretty rare breed. Eat your heart out Emily Henderson :p
