Writing FFL with a Slightly Different Approach
Writing doesn’t come naturally to me. It’s not something I believe I’m especially good at. It’s not something I find myself naturally compelled to do, either. So why am I writing a personal finance blog, you might ask?
The answers are twofold. I’m writing this blog as a way to help people who make a high income make sense of their personal finances. I’m also writing it specifically to get better at writing.
To date, I have waited to write articles until I felt I had something especially insightful or detailed to share. I came to realize recently, however, that writing a blog this way would fail to reach a large enough audience or gain any real traction for a really long time.
Given both my motivations for writing Financial Freedom Lab, it seems antithetical to only write one article a month. That is why I have decided to write at least 3 articles per week about a personal finance topic. I will continue to write in-depth “lab reports” on specific topics as I have been. In the interim, I will focus on pushing out more content both to keep the blog fresh with new content and to actually practice writing. That’s the point of this, after all.
Whether it’s a short blurb like this one or a podcast recommendation, I hope that my short articles will still provide readers with the valuable content they want and deserve.
Some of the areas I hope to focus on include:
- What financial freedom means (not just the definition)
- Specific strategies others are using to achieve it
- Tips and tricks for getting the best deals shopping online
- How to maximize your credit card rewards
- An almost live account of my process buying a business
- How to evaluate real estate crowdfunding investments
- Comparison of real estate asset classes
- Passive income ideas
- And many more!
