July Fizzle update…a preview

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!

    1. Me too! I have to keep reminding myself that I’m trying to build up a backlog and not re-launch too early! 🙂

  1. I also follow your blog *sniff*. Kidding aside, you need to take a break now and then. Can’t wait to see the fruits of your labor.

  2. Good luck with the comeback. I still think fewer bigger posts is easier than more and shorter posts – I’ve had to abandon my blogs following the latter course, though I am still persevering with one – but everyone is different.

    Whatever works for you! 🙂

    1. You know, I just looked hard at the way I think and write and am going with what felt right, so hopefully this will work out. 🙂 Thanks!
