The Weekly Personal Finance Digest – Time To Reflect

Debt Roundup Personal Finance DigestTwo weeks ago, I celebrated my one year of blogging on Debt Roundup.  I got some great encouragement from many of your and I thank you for that.  As with any milestone, I like to reflect on what I have done and what I would like to do.  I am happy with what I have done, but I am trying to find the direction of what I want to do.  There are so many ideas in my head for this site and it’s purpose that it can be confusing at times.

After some deep thinking, I decided that I want to redesign Debt Roundup along with a logo change.  I think of it as a rebranding.  I am excited about it, but it also adds just another thing that I need to get done.  I love multitasking, but sometimes it can get a little out of hand.  Along with a new branding for the site, I am hiring a staff writer to handle a few articles a month.  I am also hiring a VA to help me keep up with some of the general tasks.

Hiring out work is something that I don’t like to do often because I lose a little control.  After months of pushing myself to finish more and more, I finally realized that I wasn’t doing myself any favors.  Hiring out some work is going to be the best for me and the site.  I will make sure to keep the quality that all my readers expect and the posting frequency should stay the same.

Hire Me

Yep, you see that correctly.  I started staff writing on another site a few months ago and I really have enjoyed it.  So much so, that I wanted to offer my services to anyone looking for a staff writer.  You know how I write, so if you think I will be a good fit, just contact me and I will be happy to talk with you.

I offer a wide range of services, so if you need anything else, make sure to check out my service offerings.  If you have wordpress issues, I can help.  If you need some blog work, then I can help.  If you need help with anything, feel free to reach out and I will see if I can help.

Twitter Chat

I am co-hosting a twitter chat with David Smith from Personal Bankruptcy Canada on Tuesday, September 10th at 12pm EST.  I joined a twitter chat with David a few weeks ago and then he asked if I would share my story.  So, here we are.  David and I are going to talk more about my debt story and I am going to give you more insight into my journey.  I really think you will enjoy it.  Also, if you RSVP to the chat, then you get a chance to win a $50 Amazon Gift Card.

In order to win the gift card, you have to follow both myself (@DebtRoundUp) and David Smith (@DavidSmithPBC) on twitter and RSVP.

To participate, you can use #PBCchat and make it easier with their twitter chatroom.

About Grayson Bell

I am an average Joe, who built up over $50,000 worth of credit card debt and had to learn how to break it back down. It took 4 years of learning budgets, secrets, and many other personal finance tricks in order to cut the debt to $0. Now, I push to teach others not only how to get out of debt, but how to use credit wisely and how to start growing their wealth. You can view my other site, Sprout Wealth for ways to grow your money. I am also a freelance personal finance writer who provides staff writing and ghost writing services.


  1. Wow, Grayson! Lots of great changes going on there. Can’t wait to see what this second year brings for you and for Debt Roundup. I’m sure that whatever you have planned will be great. :-)

  3. Losing control is something I’ve always struggled with. Though growing and expanding beyond what you can handle on your own is a sure sign of success. Congrats! Marking the twitter chat in my calendar now.

  4. Congrats on a year of blogging, and good luck with the new adventures. I’ve been going back and forth between getting a VA to help out, so I’m curious to hear how it works out for you.
