Flirting With a Mistress
What’s this all about I hear you say?? Well don’t worry it’s not what you think. Mrs.B and I are still going strong and I think she’ll be having a few words with me for even joking about having a mistress in the title! I do still feel like I’m cheating on my first love though, online love that is. Money Bulldog now has a sister site which you can find at MoneyRebound.com! Maybe I shouldn’t have said sister, this is just getting weirder!
It’s been about a year since I first set up Money Bulldog and time has really flown. In that time I’ve taken a course in accounting, sold a house, moved house and now we’re moving again. During all this I’ve also been writing posts for Money Bulldog (some of which I hope have been useful) and embarking on the huge learning curve that is personal finance blogging.
When I started Money Bulldog I really didn’t have a clue what I was doing, I was just making it up as I went along. After 12 months of blogging and interacting with so many other amazing personal finance bloggers though, I finally feel ready to take the plunge and take on another project. I know in the past few weeks I’ve been complaining about my lack of time but a few of the time commitments which I’ve been juggling around for months are soon coming to an end and Mrs.B has finally given me permission to branch out and add a .com to my blog repertoire.
One thing you realize when you start setting up another site is just how much work you’ve put into your existing one! In the back of my mind I thought I’d have the new site set up and ready to go in no time but I’d forgotten just how much time I spent setting up all those social accounts, installing plugins, configuring settings, setting up a hosting package etc., it’s a lot of work and certainly not easy.
Anyway if you want to pay a visit to Money Rebound our first post should be going live today and I hope you like it. The site itself is still a work in progress but I just couldn’t wait to start blogging so I hope you can put up with it being a little threadbare for the time being.
