No More No Credit Needed

Edit –

At the request of my wonderful wife, I have decided to CONTINUE to post new articles here at No Credit Needed.  She insisted, especially after reading several of the kind emails and comments.  I have decided, however, to stop producing new content for several other sites, so that I can focus my attention here.

Original Post –

I have come to difficult decision.  I have decided to stop publishing new articles here at No Credit Needed.

The past four years, I have enjoyed getting to know you, my awesome readers, and I want to thank you for sharing my journey with me.  My family and I have been blessed, as many of you have encouraged us, inspired us, congratulated us, and motivated us.  I want to thank you for reading the articles I have written, and I hope that even a small percentage of them have been valuable to you.

To my fellow bloggers, I want to thank you for linking to my site, promoting my articles, and joining me in this journey.  I now count many of you as my dear friends.  I will continue to visit your sites, and I will always appreciate your hard work.

My decision to stop writing is not an easy one, but I think that it is the right decision, for me and for my family.  My life is full.

Again, I want to thank each of you.  I cannot overstate how important this site – and its readers – have been to me.

You guys rock.

  1. Wow. After doing this even for a year and a half, I can see a number of reasons to stop and free up the time for other avenues. Will you continue to blog at any of your other sites?

  2. You will be sorely missed. I’m glad you’ve found “your place” in life and that you’re happy. Good luck with whatever is next!

  3. Wow, so sad to hear that, but I understand the need to focus on other things.

    Good luck, and thank YOU for all your hard work and devotion to producing one of my favorite PF sites.

    You’ll be missed!

  4. NCN – So sorry to see you go. I’ve been a long time reader and I have certainly learned a lot. I hope you will leave the blog up so new readers will learn from your blog.

    I hope you continue on the your debt free quest and I wish you and your family all the best.

  5. As an avid reader I support your decision to move on. There is a time when you either run out of steam or material to continue a blog, any blog really. I appreciate all you have done to bring the ‘gospel of debt freedom’ to the loyal masses and the newly enlightened! It’s been an amazing journey from debt to dollars!:)

  6. Wow… I linked from your feed to say good luck moving forward and now I’m writing to say “welcome back”.

    Perhaps you can scale down your schedule or something else but I’m glad you’ll still be sharing your perspectives on things. Hey, sounds like you have great perspective for a really good life simplification post!

    Thanks!

  7. Hero of the week: Mrs. NCN!

    Glad you’re going to stick around NCN! Your debt reduction message is important information that is helpful to a LOT of people. Let us know if we can help in any way….

  8. Funny, I just posted something similar last night about having too many things going on and needing to get rid of a few of them.

    Once there are too many things going on, the important activities get dragged down amidst a gazillion less-important ones.

    I have the same problem letting go of things, but I’m thinking I’ll need to do that with some of my things, too.

    Anyway, long answer to say that I’m glad you’ll be continuing this one. 😉

  9. I would have really missed your ‘voice’ among PF bloggers – you have a unique approach & I am glad your wife is so awesome. As a side note, you’re the first PF blogger I found, so I am doubly happy you’ve decided to stay.

  10. Wow, for a moment there before I read the edit, I panicked a bit. You’re a very bright spot in my day. I’m glad you’ve decided to stick around.

    I do understand the need to free up some time. My husband and I write an ezine and it can be ‘just one more thing’ in a hundred things that needed to be done yesterday. I concur with the former commenter that you don’t owe us a certain number of posts each week. Please keep us posted as to what you’re doing, many of us will follow whatever you choose to do.

    I have a recurring scene playing in my head at times. Remember the movie “Little Big Man” with Dustin Hoffman? When I find it’s time to move on from a project or interest, when the subject is played out to my satisfaction, an old, quavery little voice in my head says, “…and that was the end of my_______period…”. Makes me laugh and also asks the question, “are you done with that, really? Do you feel complete?” If the answer is yes, you can happily move on without regrets.

    Good luck in all you do, you inspire us and we’re extremely proud of your accomplishments and aspirations. And thanks for the excellent blog, too.

  11. NCN,

    I understand the pressures of having so many irons in the fire. I haven’t been able to devote nearly as much time as I envisioned when I started EverybodyLovesYourMoney 4+ years ago. In the early days we were all blogging like crazy. You’ve kept up the pace much better than I have. I haven’t posted nearly the quantity and quality that you have over the years but I’ve still enjoyed having a conduit to share my thoughts. If you have to slow the posting down a bit, don’t sweat it. The important thing is that you do what is right for you.

  12. I am glad that you have decided to continue with this blog. I really look forward to reading your articles. Do what is right for you, even if you don’t post every day I will still continue to follow your blog.
