Gooood morning, internet-land!
In case you’re seeing this, now we have some enjoyable information to share!!
I, J. Cash, have acquired the weblog again and am popping out of retirement!!
The Motley Idiot has determined to not proceed with their acquired websites, and whereas I used to be utterly at peace with the choice to promote three years in the past to them, the chance was too thrilling to cross up so we’re dusting off the keyboard and getting the occasion began once more!! Cross on the phrase to all fellow budgeters and moms of budgeters! We’re again, child!! 😂
And we’re gonna do that factor OLD SCHOOL too like in 2008 when it was a easy blog-blog right here, sharing ideas and ideas and concepts and never messing round with website positioning or Progress Hacking or any of the opposite stuff that comes together with constructing a profitable “weblog enterprise” on-line. We did all that, discovered from it, capitalized on all of it, and now we’re going again to the roots as a pure ardour mission.
We’ll see what kind of schedule we’ll be having right here, however it positively gained’t be on daily basis Mon-Fri like prior to now – most likely extra like M, W, F or perhaps even simply a couple of times per week till we get issues going right here so I don’t burn out once more… And can prob carry again some previous buddies to the location over time too, like 5AM Joel and different nice storytellers from across the neighborhood!
It’s going to be enjoyable!! And I hope you’ll stick round and be part of us!
As you may see I already blew up the previous design right here and utterly refreshed it with out all of the sidebars and adverts and junk cluttering every thing up, so test it out should you’re studying this through electronic mail our elsewhere!
I felt like needing an extended scorching bathe after refreshing every thing up, haha… And hopefully the redesign makes it simpler and cleaner to learn and discover issues over time too 🙂 All of the textual content is bigger, the menu and classes extra organized, and over time I’ll be tightening it up much more as I catch issues or y’all shoot over bugs/suggestions… Which I hope you do! Lemme know if there’s something I minimize you want stayed or can’t discover one thing anymore! The weblog is simply as a lot yours as it’s mine!
Lots I wanna say right here as a lot has modified over time, for the higher and worse!, (I’ve taken up skateboarding/whiskey, but in addition a uncommon auto-immune illness! lol) however I believe I’ll go away the “what I’ve been as much as recently” and “extra about me” posts for the longer term so we are able to get this pet kicked off and rollin’…
However earlier than we go right here, I actually should thank The Motley Idiot for not solely giving me the alternative to return again to this weblog which is loopy in itself!, however actually for the previous 3+ years of believing in me and serving to me obtain my very own private and monetary targets of getting acquired.
They not solely concerned me all through all the means of transitioning out of the weblog and defending my coronary heart (and model), however even let me faucet a successor I admired and trusted for years (5AM Joel) to ensure Budgets had the most effective likelihood of survival. Then on prime of all that they employed me to construct out a brand new mission for them (All-Star Cash, R.I.P.) permitting me to nonetheless stay within the recreation! And get a steady paycheck all through 😂
And whereas Budgets didn’t break any world data after I was away, it was 100% because of the stewardship of each The Idiot and Joel for letting it reside on respectfully locally, giving me no hesitation by any means in coming again to it right here years later. I most likely wouldn’t be typing these phrases out in all honesty if it weren’t for them.
So big due to the entire Idiot crew – Roger, Laura, Dana, Tracy, Bledsoe, and 5AM Joel. Y’all rock. 💙
And received nothing however love for any of YOU nonetheless right here studying this proper now too!
