Sold my Entrepreneur Writer blog
« on: November 22, 2019, 10:19:58 AM »
Hi guys

Some of you will know me from the days when I used to run the My Writers Circle forum, and I was also instrumental in setting up Best Writing Forum.

I am mostly retired these days, but wanted to let you know that I recently sold my writing blog at www.entrepreneurwriter.net. The new owner is a guy named Daryl. I don't really know what he plans for the blog, but he is young and full of enthusiasm, so I am hoping he will give it an exciting new lease of life! In any event, I recommend paying it a visit and signing up for updates.

I am not really doing much writing these days, but I do have a UK personal finance blog at www.poundsandsense.com if anyone would like to continue to follow me there.

Good luck, and happy writing!

Nick  :)

Good to hear that you're still tapping the keys, Nick, even if you have cut back a bit.

Best wishes,

Gyppo

Hi Nick!

I just subscribed to your finance blog. I'm not in the UK, but I'll bet the wisdom translates.

Are you still taking your annual epic trips?

Take care,

Laura

Thanks, Gyppo. Yes, I'm still doing a bit of keyboard tapping while enjoying my (semi) retirement. Hope life is treating you well.  :)

Thanks, Laura. All subscriptions to PAS are very much appreciated!

For a variety of reasons I'm not doing any epic trips these days, but I still try to fit in regular short breaks. Hope all goes well with you.

Continued best wishes to you. Thank you for all you have done for us over the years. It has made a great difference.

Take care of yourself.
Writing what you care about is, I find, more relaxing than it is working.
Imperfect Reason My thoughts, such as they are.

You?  Retired, Nick?  I'm 70 now and have another ten novels to write! 

Keep going!

Hi Nick,

I hope you are enjoying your semi-retirement in good health, and as we share a birthday, Happy Birthday!


I don't know if you can possibly grasp what MWC and BWF have done for me as a writer but more importantly, as a person. I have grown in many ways and not grown in ways I should have. The not growing is on me. However, you provided me a path to write and make dear friends whom I've never even met in person who mean more to me than some people I have known my whole life and have actually interacted with face to face.

The writers and procrastinators you brought together have a lot to be thankful for. I hope you can somewhat absorb the impact you've had on so many lives. It's been a Godsend for me. Thank you.

I wish you all the best and many more successful, healthy, happy years to enjoy your semi-retirement. Writers never fully retire, do they?  ;)

With deep appreciation and yes, hugs, :-* :)

~Deb

I don't follow the forums as much as I used to, and I've been "retired" for 12 years now...but I'm still busy writing. Should have my eighth book published in January, and there's always a debt to pay for all the great advice I've gleaned over the years.

Belated thanks to Lin, Deb and Herron for their kind comments. Can't believe it's been four months since I last checked this thread. Where does all the time go?!

I am still fine, and still working on my blog (and open to offers of other work, as long as they aren't too big!). I am, of course, in semi-lockdown at the moment, along with everyone else in the UK. Hope you're all doing well and taking the opportunity to write!

All good wishes,

Nick  :)
