Now I turn to you, the reader of The Simple Dollar, and ask, “What would you like to see posted about at The Simple Dollar?” I’d love to hear some of your ideas; please, leave a comment on this post or send me an email or an IM with your ideas for posts or post series.
I’ve never had much of a problem with coming up with ideas for the site, but sometimes I have a “drinking from the firehose” effect, where I have so many ideas that I am unable to determine what the “good” ones are and just write whatever interests me most at the moment. To a degree, this triggered my Building a Better Blog for 2007 series.
One series I am considering is a ten part series outlining the books that have truly affected my life and have molded me into the penny pinching person you see today. Most of them do have a pretty direct connection to my personal finance philosophy (though not all), and they all provide some insight into the mindset that makes successful personal finance management work for me. Only one of them, alas, is a “typical” personal finance book; if more of theme were so, I probably would have already started the series. Is this series of interest to you? Or does it seem like a bad idea?
Any thoughts, comments, or ideas you have on articles or other features or aspects of The Simple Dollar are welcome in this thread. Thanks for reading!
