Last Friday I got to hang out with Pete from Do You Even Blog as part of his site's one year anniversary livestream.
It was a fun stream. We played some trivia (which I won!), listened to Katy Perry, and Pete took some time to review a few blogs. As you may guess from the title one of them was RisdomFI.
Pete had some helpful comments, and I learned a lot. One thing in particular was how he and his wife behaved on the site and YouTube channel. They didn't do what I want, and that's a reflection on how I set things up.
The main takeaway from Pete was that the website part of RisdomFI needs some love. Now this wasn't a surprise, he is right. I have been aware that this site needs some TLC, since it hasn't been a huge priority for me. I've got a fire under my butt now and it's time to shit or get off the pot.
So here's the plan:
So how's all this going?
The move: So far I've built a lot of the new site, and it is looking a LOT better. Thanks in a big part to Pete's MEGA post on Starting A Blog. The thing is a beast. Anyone who wants to begin blogging would do well to sit down with a beverage and start making their way through it.
The videos: I've got a few planned - some big, some small. I'm recording one of the small ones today and plan to have that out next week!
The blog: Ta-da!
It will be a little while yet while till I introduce the new site, so until then I'll see you in the next video!
