Welcome to the 11th clever article on blogging, investing, and financial freedom.
For those who are unfamiliar with this segment, the last clever article on blogging was published was on March 14, 2016.
It’s actually hard to believe that it’s been more than a year since the last post was published.
I mean, so much has happened and changed since then.
Nevertheless, I used to publish the clever articles on blogging segment weekly during my year of eluding the 9 to 5.
The posts covered insightful content, articles on blogging, investing, and financial independence from my favourite blogs around the web.
The updated version of this post still features similar content. However, the selections are slightly more refined to fit in with the updated theme of this blog.
In all honesty, I discontinued writing this segment before because I felt like I wasn’t adding any value by publishing it. It felt like I was just using others content to drive traffic to my site.
That was until I received an e-mail request to include a link to a post in an earlier clever articles segment.
Rather than adding the link to an older post, I figured I’d give the old segment another shot.
Here are this months clever articles about blogging, investing, and financial freedom:
3rd Quarter Net Worth Increase [$19,096] – by Doubling Dollars
Link to article: http://www.doublingdollars.com/3rd-quarter-net-worth-increase-19096/
I’ve hit another high increase of quarterly net worth! *Trumpets and horns* (plus balloons falling from the ceiling)
Whether it’s the net worth report, the side hustle income reports, or the dividend extravaganza’s, Doubling Dollars is a site you need to check out!
I routinely read clever articles from this site a few times a week for motivation. I just know that Mr. Doubling Dollars is going to be working on something – he’s literally never not side hustling.
His 3rd quarter net worth increase is just another excellent example of how hard work pays off.
September 2017 Income Report: My Fourth Month Blogging – by Well and Wealthy
Link to article: http://wellandwealthy.org/september-2017-income-report/
I was using a combination of BoardBooster and Tailwind to schedule to Pinterest and at this point I started pinning around 60% of my own stuff to my boards as well a sending it out to group boards.
I only came across Well and Wealthy within the last few months on Pinterest, but I immediately loved this blog.
Similarly to my escape in 2016, Sammy, the writer of this blog, has eluded the 9 to 5 in pursuit of more fulfilling work.
What’s even more amazing is that this blog is already generating income in only 4 months.
I look forward to following Sammy’s journey and more income reports like this one.
Who Said Blogging Was Easy – by Money Scrap

90 to 95% of bloggers don’t make it past 6 months! Will you?
In this well-written blog post on Money Scrap, the author provides a realistic approach to blogging. If you’re thinking of starting a blog but don’t want to put in the work, you might not enjoy the patience aspect of this post. On the other hand, if you’re blogging for the right reasons (personal enjoyment), and if you have the ability to be patient, I can assure you that this is an excellent read!

If you start a blog for any reason other than absolutely loving the topic you’re blogging about, you’ll burn out within a year
Four Pillar Freedom has quickly become one my favourite blogs to read. Not only is the author a machine at writing blog posts, he’s making extraordinary progress with his blog income and with his net worth reports.
Over 75 Million Americans hate their jobs.
As mentioned in the opening of this blog post, I received an e-mail about adding a link to the clever articles on blogging segment. The sender of that e-mail was the author of this blog post. Although my perspective has changed slightly since then (I’m focused on FI, blogging, and dividends), I can definitely relate to the great points made in this post. There was a time when I needed to get away from the 9 to 5 too. I desperately needed peace and quiet to think. A lot of the reasons in the above post cause me to think that the author has come to the same conclusion.Clever Articles on Blogging, Investing, and Financial Freedom #11 Click To Tweet
Concluding Thoughts – To Publish Clever Articles on Blogging or not?
I enjoy the curation aspect of the clever articles on blogging segment. But I always feel guilty for excluding all the other great dividend investing and personal finance blogs I read.
It would be easy to list off 25 clever articles from around the web. However, the selections are based on my mentality during a specific period of time.
In conclusion, I hope you were able to find value and motivation out of the blog posts shared. Moreover, the main theme/takeaway to gather from this particular post is the importance of hard work.
