The Happy Rock Is Looking To Expand And Bring On Another Writer

by The Happy Rock on May 29, 2008

writing-hand.jpgThe Happy Rock is looking to expand and bring in a part time writer/blogger. Click here, to read more about the oppurtunity. I would love to find a reader who is in the trenches of debt reduction to augment the article base here at The Happy Rock. The further I am removed from being in debt, the harder it is for me to write fresh content on the whole process. Getting people out of debt is one of the main goals of the site and I think letting readers get a first hand view at someone walking their way out(with coaching) will be a great way to teach, learn, and motivate about debt reduction.

This decision will also free some extra time for me to focus on some different areas of the site and a few other opportunities I have in the pipeline.

If you don’t have blogging experience, but love writing and personal finance, don’t hesitate to contact me to find out more information. I am looking forward to meeting any interested persons.

Good idea, Rock. Can’t wait to see the new perspective.

You still have a mortgage right? That is still debt. I don’t really go with the philosophy that there is good debt and bad debt. I started reading a book I believe that was called debt-free. I was going along good with the book until the author said that they still had a mortgage and they considered it good debt.
You could always strive for that mortgage burning party.

@Sue – I agree 100%. I usual qualify ‘out of debt’ as out of debt except for a mortgage, but I didn’t this time. The only difference between mortgage and other debt is the amount, purpose, and where in your financial plan you want to pay it back. I definitely have a dream to fully own a home, but it is within context of all of our other financial goals. The mortgage often comes last because of the amount and length of time it takes to pay off. Mortgage is often considered good debt, because the rates are generally reasonable, prices are semi consistent and having to save for the full price of a home would take decades for most people. With that said, I don’t want any debt! I am glad there are others who feel the same way!

Good luck in finding someone – I’d love to be a contributor if I didn’t already have my own blog, and if I wasn’t out of debt – like you.

Love your blog, keep up the great work, and I look forward to some fresh perspectives you will hopefully soon have!

I would be interested in hearing more about what your looking for in a contributing blogger. I am just beginning my journey into debt reductions & was considering starting a separate blog to document my “travels” on this journey. I found your site through the Personal Finance Buzz site.
