I know you’re all absolutely dying for me to come back…*crickets* so here’s quick rundown of where things stand after two months. Okay, maybe I’m being hard on myself. I know there’s at least 5 people who follow this blog regularly–myself, my mom, my wife, my boss, and Len Penzo. 😉
All kidding aside, things behind the scenes are rolling along just fine.
In late June, I had the “lightbulb moment” for the blog. It was that sudden rush of creative juice where everything just magically comes together in your mind.
I saw the future of Fiscal Fizzle, clear as day.
Fortunately for my sanity, I’ve had to “revise” that future a bit to fit the reality of available time and my own readily available skills, but I’m very happy with how things are turning out.
I realized two things about the blog:
- I was trying to mold my message, way of thinking, and habits to the blog itself, instead of structuring my blog around myself.
- I wasn’t living up to my motto of “spicy thoughts,” consistently challenging the status quo.
My goal is to change all of that next month. Without revealing too much (it’s still a moving target), the new Fiscal Fizzle will consist of:
- Concise, daily thoughts published every weekday morning. These will be much shorter than the posts you’re used to from me, and much more a’la Seth Godin.
- An email mini-magazine, with the featured post also published on the blog on Saturdays and exclusive content delivered only to your inbox.
All of the content will remain completely free! I am working on several premium e-Books as we speak, but it will be a while before those are released into the world.
Only a month or so until I’m ready to roll out the new Fiscal Fizzle…I can’t wait to share it with you!
