I mentioned the other day that we were having a visitor over for a few days. Well, he came and just went. Cap from Stop Buying Crap (yep, another personal finance blogger!) stayed over at our place while he was here in Silicon Valley on business. When he arrived here on Thursday, we all met up with a couple of other bloggers — Lazy Man from Lazy Man and Money and Kevin from Rate Ladder. We had a nice discussion where we had a chance to talk about the blogosphere and business ventures… Definitely very eye-opening.
It’s great when there are other people in your online circle who are based in the same geographical area, since we can easily hold impromptu meetings! Our discussions drifted into the realm of entrepreneurship. Nice to know that despite the risks and hard work involved, we’re all striving for independence from the traditional nine-to-five. I was struck by how despite our similarities (as bloggers), we’ve also got our various approaches to making things work for us financially and business-wise.
Lastly, I have to say that Cap is such a sweet guy — so courteous and gracious. He spent the day with me on Friday going through my rounds as I picked up my kids from school and brought them to the pediatrician! Then we all went out to attend an early Christmas party together (where Cap bonded with the guy folk on the subject of online games). Fun times! Cap, our door is open to you anytime!
As it goes, if you’re a pf blogger in our general vicinity, drop me a line! Let us show you some nice California hospitality. 🙂
Voting for our new logo design is now over. As for which logo won? It was a tight vote between 2 logos. Now how about I surprise you all with it when I put it up?
Also, Trent from The Simple Dollar has an e-book for sale called 365 Ways To Live Cheap! Do check it out when you get a chance. Given its premise, it promises to be very handy in today’s economic climate. Congratulations to Trent for coming out with this book and fulfilling the dream of many bloggers out there. 🙂
