My wife mentioned something the other day that I didn’t already realize. Most of my posts are in a story format.
Whereas many other Personal Finance sites write in lists or how-to format, I write stories. I don’t plan my writing like that; I just think it makes for better reading. But what do you think? Do you like reading my stories?
You see, I think writing plain articles kind of boring, as is reading them. I like dishing out my secrets, although I think Stacie is always worried how much I’ll give away. I don’t give everything away because my coworkers and some friends know about the site, so I want to keep some sort of privacy.
However, you all know by know that I’m impatient, lazy, and sometimes downright stupid. I make rash decisions, but then I learn from them. It might take me two or more times to actually ACT on that little educational moment, but I learn. And I like to help you learn through example, rather than through just lecture.
So what type of articles would you like to see on Clever Dude? Do you care to see our budget? More How-To articles? Investing, insurance or taxes (I hope not!)? I do warn you, I’m not like Trent (The Simple Dollar) or some other writers who can spew out 3-5 awesome articles a day. It takes alot for me to compose all my thoughts into a single, well-written, informative and personal article. That’s why I only write a couple per week.
Think about it and leave a comment or shoot me an email using my spiffy new contact form.
