I've been fortunate to have bloggers support my site and I try to return the favor as often as I can. I really believe that blogging is a social activity that requires reaching out to readers and other bloggers.

Working on the Yakezie Challenge has been energizing and a learning experience. We push each other and work with one another on projects and carnivals. It's inspired to me to include others even more.

Blogging is social.

Sunday Blogger Series

With that in mind, I've decided to get back to interviewing bloggers with the Sunday Blogger Series. I had done this as I started the site in the fall. It was a great way to learn from other bloggers, introduce readers to other personal finance blogs, and highlight their best content.

A few weeks ago, I put out a call on Twitter to personal finance bloggers to see if they would like me to interview them. I'm grateful and excited that several bloggers have been kind enough to participate and I hope more will too.

First up this Sunday with be Kita from Personal Finance Journey. For next few weeks, she and other will be sharing their take on personal finance and how it affects us. You'll see different perspectives on how people handle balancing family, work, and money.  I hope you take the time to see their sites if you haven't already.

Joining the Sunday Blogger Series

If you're interesting in being interviewed as part of the Sunday Blogger series, I have a few requirements.

  • You've been blogging for 3 months on personal finance.
  • You've publish genuine content. I want to connect to genuine bloggers, not linking to a spam site. I review all the sites before sending out interview questions.
  • You're willingly to promote other bloggers in the series. I don't expect you to tweet  ever interview, but I would like interviewees to spread the word on their favorite bloggers. By the way, I don't want others to just promote the posts, please share posts from your favorite interviews. They are some wonderful bloggers out there.

That's it. I want to keep it accessible.

My advice to new bloggers is don’t blog alone. Learn from others (readers and bloggers) and really communicate with those within and outside your niche.
