Roots of this blog

I started NevBlog for one reason:

To track my finances.

In 2004 there were limited ways to do this, so the chronological order of a blog made the most sense.

So NevBlog was born.  You can see it here in all it’s glory thanks to the WaybackMachine!

Through the magic of the internets, people somehow would stumble upon my blog and read it.  The blog was a side-project for fun and documentation.

Somewhere along the way business somehow got mixed up with it.  Which is fine, but moves the blog away from it’s roots.

I think in the next year I’ll be switching that up.  I’ve started posting kopywriting stuff on a different blog now:

It’s still in the infant stages and will be changing a lot.  But it’ll be nice to separate this stuff from NevBlog stuff.


And I REAAALLLYYYY miss that little column on the original NevBlog where’d I’d track all my finances.  THAT was cool :-)

    I actually think your personal posts (cuba story) adds to your copywriting articles/courses. Sure it’s usually unrelated to “business.” But it makes you stand out from other dry, business-type blogs. Plus, it’s fun to read and keeps me coming back to your site.

    I see noah and writes about personal stuff & marketing too. ( Why would you want to change that?

    And if you could go back to 2004… before you started nevblog…Would you have started 2 separate blogs? What would you do differently?

    I think a trend you’ll notice with successful personal finance bloggers is the personal touch added helps a ton. It’s easy to google advice on personal finance, and a lot of the content is similar, but when somebody opens up, it makes readers want to come back.
