I have received a lot of help from fellow bloggers who have been a large part of my success in Blogging. I am not sure of the definition of success in blogging, but you do not have to be profitable to be successfully, at least in my mind.
I started reading several blogs over the past year; it is probably actually several hundred… I have received some excellent advice on blogging, financial independence and help on all sorts of topics. Several bloggers have reached out to me with advice and help for my own blog, which is always appreciated. They have listed me on their sites, hosted a guest blog post from myself, and have genuinely been a source of inspiration.
If I have missed your helpful contributions to myself, I apologize. There are so many. If I was giving an acceptance speech at the Academy Awards, I would probably miss many too.
I started this blog with the intentions of just posting a few tips on landlording. These are topics that have helped me over the years. If I can help one landlord save several thousands of dollars (and I get a brief acknowledgement), it will be worth it.
J Money at www.budgetsaresexy.com. He was the one who initially alerted me to a Malware issue on my blog. Although I was not able to track it down right away, I was eventually able to clean my site up. I was very new to blogging and WordPress at the time, and I would never have thought that anyone would attempt to hack my blog. He also helped confirm the fix after it was in.
J Money has listed my blog on his site which helped lead me to a new record number of hits on my blog at that time.
My article on finding a mentor was highlighted on his page on a Collection of Awesome Money Articles
He is scheduled to come out to MN in August, I hope that I get a chance to meet him.
Mom @ Three is Plenty was also one who alerted me about the Malware issue. I was very new at that time; I initially thought everyone else had the issue, not me…
David Carlson at Young Adult Money has helped considerably. He and I have swapped emails several times. I have given him some remodeling advice and he has helped promote my blog on his weekly roundups.
Dave actually lives not too far away from my own home, probably less than 20 miles. At some point, we may get a chance to meet up.
Mr 1500 Days at 1500days recently posted my 10 questions article. It was actually more than 10 questions, and was fun to write and think about the answers as I wrote them. As any post generates more hits to my blogs, this one created the highest and second highest amount of hits on my blog.
Harry at YourPFPro featured one of my articles about my Ultimate Side hustle, at http://yourpfpro.com/friday-round-podcast-top-pf-blog/
Harry has also swapped several emails and given me some great advice over the past few months.
Kim at Eyes On The Dollar was my first post as a guest writer on another bloggers site. I scrambled to write the post, re-read it several times, and after it was posted I wanted to re-write it again. It was a great first experience and I thank her for it.
Jay at FiFighter was one of my first actual blog comments I ever posted. My own blog was not even up, and he was an inspiration to getting my own blog going. I am not always on board with his level of risk in RE, but it seems to be working for him. I wish I had the guts he does.
In addition to the above, the following folks have listed me as one of their favorite bloggers. Thank you for that! If you have me listed on your site and I am unaware of it, please drop me a line.
