New Ways To Connect With No Credit Needed

When I started No Credit Needed, there were very few ways to share newly published content with the world.  I would publish a new article – and then wait for traffic to come from a search engine or another site, usually via a simple text link.  Thankfully, there are now many more ways to share content – and connect with readers.

I have been using both Twitter and StumbleUpon for several years, both to post and find content.  I will continue to use these social media platforms –

Twitter –  Please follow me via  I tweet daily – with personal links to my own content and to that of other personal finance writers.

StumbleUpon – Click to view my StumbleUpon profile.  If you find an article here at No Credit Needed that you like, and you are a StumbleUpon user, please use the buttons at the end of each post to stumble and share with your followers.

I have just begun to connect with and use these social media platforms –

Facebook – This one is brand new.  Check out the facebook page for No Credit Needed.  Please like the page and share it’s content with your friends.

Flipboard – Check out the new  flipboard profile for No Credit Needed – and a personal finance flipboard magazine called the No Credit Needed News.  I’m loving flipboard – and I’m having a blast learning how to use it and all of its features.

Pintrest – Follow my pins over at Pintrest.  I am a big DIY fan – so I’ll be pinning content from around the web dealing with personal finance, simple living, woodworking, landscaping, and more.

Email – If you are a currently subscribe to No Credit Needed via email – change is on the way.  I’m switching over to a new email newsletter provider.  I’ll write a post about the new service in the next few weeks, but I wanted to give you a heads up.  You’ll need to switch over to the new service, but the process should be painless.  The new email newsletter service will provide more flexibility for me when I’m organizing and emailing content.

I want to thank you for visiting my site.  Over the years, I’ve learned a lot from both my readers and my fellow writers.

A New Adventure

I haven’t posted at No Credit Needed for the past few weeks, because my family and I have been preparing for a major change in our lives – a new adventure, if you will.

Today, I am starting a new job!

Over the past ten years, I have worked in Christian ministry with a great group of people at a great place.  A few months ago, God began to open the door for me to move to a new ministry, one that I’m very excited about and proud to be a part of.

I will be part of a ministry team that is planting a new church in our local area.  I’ll be the “lead teacher” – charged with teaching folks about Christ and encouraging them to grow in His grace.  I am very excited, because this new opportunity will afford more time for writing and more time for speaking.

Financially, moving to the the new job will present both opportunities and adjustments.  In many ways, this new job will strengthen both my faith – and my determination to be fiscally prudent.

I also plan to launch a new website, dedicated to matters of faith and focused on grace.  I’ll have more information about that in the coming days, as I put things in place, write some articles, and prepare for the roll-out.

As always, No Credit Needed will remain, primarily, about personal finance, debt reduction, and frugal living.  I’ll save the (majority of the) faith-based writing for the new site.

I want to thank you guys for your patience over the past month – and for the large number of you who contacted me, letting me know that you missed the updates.  I missed the writing and am very glad to be “back”.
