I’ve always wanted to be the type of person that sets goals for themselves. Let me pat myself on the back as, today, I’ve reached a new goal.
LONGEST TIME BETWEEN BLOG POSTS IN THE 6 YEAR HISTORY OF THIS BLOG.
I know. I know. You’re so proud of me right?! Thanks for your encouragement.
For realsy though, I’m at a weird crossroad. This blog is literally titled Punch Debt In The Face, and as such, feel like the voice of the blog should be about debt, or at the very least, personal finance. That said, after 1,170 blog posts, I just don’t have much left to say about money.
That’s not to say that I’ve stopped caring about money. My Roth IRA, 401k, and taxable investment accounts are still very much a part of my life and I love them dearly. But I just don’t have any interest in writing about them anymore. At least not often enough to warrant posting here.
I’ve flirted with the idea of selling off my blog for a couple thousand bucks. Letting some spammer take it over and blast you with a million posts about “10 ways to get out of debt” or “Best credit card offers”. I’d want to punch myself in the face for doing it, but money is money.
The other part of me wants to just let it lay dormant and post as desired (kind of like I am right now). Maybe sometimes I post a couple times a month. Maybe I go six months without any new content.
Part of me wants to just rename my blog Punch Life In The Face and just write about whatever the hell I want without feeling like I need to cater to a specific audience, but unfortunately, website SEO hates new domains.
And so here we are. Only problem is, I’m not quite sure where “here” is.
I can tell you that I’ve been continuing my latest money making hobby of flipping a ton of furniture on craigslist. Here are my most recent deals..
Original Z Chair. Paid $250. Sold for $850.
Stanley Credenza. Paid $250. Sold for $600.
Arnt Sorheim Credenza. Paid $450. Sold for $1,050.
Lane Credenza. Paid $250. Sold for $650.
Norwegian Teak Credenza. Paid $500. Sold for $1,500.
BoConcept Leather Chairs. Paid $1,000. Sold for $1,900.
Walnut Credenza. Paid $350. Sold for $800.
I know after my last post about flipping furniture I got a few emails from readers saying they gave it a shot and were able to make a quick profit. So far my furniture investing is absolutely destroying actual stock market investing. Can’t beat a 100% to 200% return on investment.
Go flip some furniture already. Unless you live in Seattle, then back off… I call dibs 🙂
Oh, and I’m 99% sure Girl Ninja and I are having a piece about us go up on Forbes this week. I’ll link to the post when I see it… assuming I’m happy with how it portrays us, haha.
