Round Up- Catching Up

After a month of barely staying in touch with the blogging world we (Molly mostly) have spent the last two weeks catching up.  Not to much of our surprise it seems many bloggers were reinvigorated with the start of the new year.

Molly:  Mike and I are very excited for this years Fin Con 2012 conference (a PF bloggers heaven).  It’s going to be held in Denver which is a short day’s drive for us!  We’ll be there and we are so excited to finally ‘see’ all these PF bloggers we follow!

Mike:  Molly has problems not ‘seeing’ who she’s reading.

Molly:  I know anonymity is a preference for many and I can respect that….OK, no scratch that….I can’t!  I need to see faces!!    If I don’t I start making up how you look.  In my head you become a weird anime thrown in with whomever was on the cover of People magazine that week.  Please, I beg you, just email me your photo- I won’t share it with anyone- you know who I speak of.  Mutant Supermodel just released her photo!  Thank you so much Mutant Supermodel!! » » »

Feet To the Fire- November

With November behind us we’ve just wrapped up our 3rd month with ‘Mike and Molly’s House’.  That leaves us 3 more months to build the blog full time.  We do want to make some income from the blog so we are using this time to focus on building it up as fast as possible.  Come March we will need to bring in other income to cover our expenses so we don’t need to dip into our savings.  One thing that keeps us focused on our goal of creating income from our blog is to report on our goals.

Molly:  I’m well aware making a living as a blogger is a bit of a pipe dream.  It’s tough and only the very few make it.  But…I want to be one of them!!!!  I love writing, researching and coming up with projects for this blog.  I don’t want to have it as a side job I want it as the job!  I also can’t help feeling like I’ve been here before.  Trying to make it big as a dance choreographer and than later trying our hand in building spec houses.  Why can’t we pick something where we actually have a chance at making a living? (whine…)

Mike:  Hon, I think you’re feeling the stress because we’re at the half way point and we really feel the clock ticking.  On the other hand it does feel like we’ve been here before.  » » »

Feet to the Fire- October

We’ve just finished our second month at Mike and Molly’s House- WHOOT! WHOOT!  We’re starting to get our blog groove on and are enjoying it even more than we expected. Writing articles for the blog has become a motivator for us to go out into the world, discover new things and tell you all about it.

Molly:  We both tend to be homebodies.  Because we want to explore Santa Fe with new eyes it’s been a really cool experience to go out and document what’s out there.  We’ve met more new people in the last few months than our entire history in Santa Fe!

Mike: It seems like everywhere we turn there’s a new post waiting to happen.

Molly:  And to think we were worried about having enough content!  The challenge has become to find enough time to write a post.  I’m not complaining- we want to include everything; an interesting story, quality photos and let’s just throw in a video while we’re at it! » » »
