Get Rich Slowly Staff Candidate & Minor Site Updates!

in MvD Updates, People & Products

Welcome Get Rich Slowly readers!

I’m proud to be able to announce that I’ve been chosen as one of seven candidates to become a staff writer for GetRichSlowly.org!

Over the next two weeks, J.D. at Get Rich Slowly will be unveiling 2 posts from each of his seven candidates!  While the public won’t be taking a vote, he is excited to gauge how the readership will connect with each author’s writing and style.

I’ve had the honor of leading things off with my post, How To Use CouchSurfing To See The World!  If you enjoy the post, I’d really appreciate you leaving a comment, especially if you’re a long-time GRS reader!

New to Man Vs. Debt?

If it’s your first time here, there are a couple great ways to get to know me better:

  1. Make sure you stay up-to-date by subscribing (100% free) through either a RSS reader or by e-mail. Subscribing keeps you in the loop, keeps me accountable, and helps gain more exposure for everyone!
  2. Follow me on Twitter (@ManVsDebt). Twitter is one the best ways to interact with me and the community!  You’ll find a lot of fascinating links and discussions that don’t make it here to the blog.

In addition, I hope you’ll start by visiting the About Man Vs. Debt page to learn more about MvD and my personal story.

Here’s a short-cut to some of my most viewed, commented, or unique posts:

And here’s a list of our personal travel updates for you to get more familiar with our situation:

Minor Site Updates!

For those of you that have been around for a while, I’ve got some updates as well!  First, I’d love to get your feedback on the new banner.  If you’re reading in RSS, please click over to the main site to view it and let me know!

In addition, I’ve updated the About Page to reflect some recent changes.  It was far overdo and I hope you like it!  Let me know!

That’s it…  I appreciate all of your support over the next couple of weeks!

Good luck with your audition. I’ll have to start reading GRS more reguluarly if you join the staff.

I agree with Meg regarding the banner.

Good luck on GRS! That was one of the first personal finance blogs I started reading on a regular basis. Great banner! Gives the site a much more personal feel….and I love the tag line “Get out of debt…get into life” Sums it up very nicely!
