J. Money Sold RockStar Finance to ESIMoney
ESIMoney acquires RockStar Finance for six digits dollar amount. That is one of the top news everyone who is into personal finance blogging should know and celebrate. I happen to be one of the secret followers of J. Money through his blog post on BudgetsAreSexy. Why do I use the word ‘secret’? The reason is that I rarely comment on his post neither have I had any physical contact or interaction with him. In fact, I can say that both of us are thousands of kilometres apart. However, I realised that following someone may not actually involve visiting or knocking on his door. If you actually want to connect to somebody, you can do this by reading his write-up. If you are a blogger, you will understand what I am saying. When you write, it is not just about what you write alone. You are actually pouring out your mind with all your emotion and intelligence put together.
Don’t let me write too much outside the context of this article. The thrust of this article is just to congratulate J. Money on the sale of Rockstar Finance. At the same time, we at Myfinancekits extend our congratulatory message to John of ESIMoney, who J. Money described as a good friend and blogger veteran, for sealing the deal. May be, I should be more specific on why we deem it fit to congratulate the duo on the deal that led to the sale and acquisition of the Rockstar Finance. I have read the stories from both parties. I can say that it is actually a win-win. Besides, I consider this as a good development which is capable of motivating the younger personal finance bloggers to be their best in this ever more competitive blogging world. I will come back to that later.
Why I congratulate J. Money
Myfinancekits congratulates J. Money not because of the monetary benefits or gains he got from the sale of Rockstar Finance. Essentially, I see it as a landmark achievement for someone to build a blog from the scratch to the point that it becomes the toast of the whole world. With my little experience in blogging, I know what it means to keep a blog fresh with quality contents that people will like to read. I can imagine the countless number of sleepless nights that J. Money must have invested in Rockstar Finance to make it what it is today. To me, it doesn’t matter whether J. Money is no longer the owner of Rockstar Finance; the truth is that he has left a legacy for all Personal Finance Bloggers. I may not know what comments from other people may be but I would say that he made a good decision. It is not just about him, I can see that he has the interest of the larger blogger community at heart. And what a joy that J. Money is able to sell the site to someone he knows and trusts; someone who can add more features to the site thereby taking it to the next level. To confirm that Rockstar Finance will not experience any setback, I submitted my blog to the directory of personal finance bloggers, within twenty hours my blog appeared on the list of recently added blogs . I cannot but wish J. Money well as he enters another phase of his life.
Why I congratulate John, ESIMoney
I will start by saying that one good turn deserves another. To be sincere, I don’t know much about ESIMoney. However, I read about the testimony of J. Money about him. He described him and I quote as “Someone who’s not only been with this community longer than I have going on 12+ years now (!), but also someone I know is “in it for the right reasons”. The truth is that, it doesn’t matter how much John might have spent in order to make this acquisition happen. Not everybody can be granted this type of opportunity. I do hope that Rockstar Finance will scale a new height under his leadership. Once again, congratulations!
