Introducing our new blog: The Power of 10

Published January 9, 2016   Posted in How to Think

Hey everyone and happy weekend! Today, I would like to officially announce the introduction of a new companion blog to ThinkSaveRetire that takes a look at early retirement, financial and lifestyle topics in very succinct and direct 10-item blog posts.

The Power of 10 and the 10 of SpadesFor example, 10 ways to survive the winter blues, 10 reasons why financial independence is popular, 10 things not to say in the office. You get the idea! It’s blogging about life, elevated to the power of 10.

The blog’s name? It is called The Power of 10.  Take a look if the idea strikes your fancy!

I want this to be a community effort!

My intent for this blog is to make it more of a community effort rather than another blog that I own. I am ready and willing to link directly to content on other blogs, re-post a portion of external content with a link to the original source and anything else that helps drive traffic around the idea of 10-item blog posts to totally level up your life.

Also, I am always looking for writers who would like to contribute their ideas to the new blog. I cannot offer financial compensation for contributions, but I certainly do offer links back to the author’s blog (and, where appropriate, within the body of the article).

If you would like to contribute, visit the contribution page over on The Power of 10 to get started. It’s simple – you fill out the form, I read it and probably say “Yes, please do!” to your idea for a blog post.

Thanks for reading and enjoy the weekend.

  1. I love this idea. I can’t wait to see what content everyone comes up with. Wonderful as always, Steve!

  2. Congrats on the launch! Very fun concept. Maybe I should have expanded my post this morning to 10 items 😉

  3. Congratulations, ill definitely try to contribute! Thanks for thinking about the community!

    Love this idea! I’m going to check it out today 🙂

  5. Okay, seriously, how do you do it all? I love the new blog, but I am totally baffled by how you find the time! At least we know you’ll never be bored in retirement, since you’ve got at least three awesome blogs to keep going. Sure makes it hard to keep up on the reading, though! 🙂

      Ha! Working from home, I can design my schedule pretty much exactly how I want it. When I’m not working on “work stuff”, I am usually either writing or coming up with an idea. Sometimes I’ll take a break from focusing on “work stuff” and I’ll write some more. It’s nice that when I get into one of those writing grooves, I can usually kick out a fairly complete article in about an hour, which means I can usually spin out more than one a day if I’m properly motivated. I don’t AVERAGE more than one a day, though! 🙂

      • I’m stoked for you that you can pull down your level of income and still find enough time to write so much. Pretty awesome! I have some weeks when I can get ahead of schedule, but those are rare — and I’m only writing for one blog! Not to mention that you seem to comment on just about every blog out there. Amazing.

          Thanks ONL! That, and I’m actually going to be starting yet another project – this one isn’t a blog, though – it’s a one-pager about FI, something that I’ve wanted to do for quite some time but never really got around to it. This one will definitely take some creativity!
