There’s Someone I’d Like You to Meet

Over the past few months, I’ve alluded to creating a new site several times. Some of you have asked for an update, and I attempted to use my Jedi mind tricks to distract you because the new site wasn’t ready yet. Even though it still isn’t as ready as I’d like it to be, I’ve decided I can’t keep it to myself forever.

I’d like you to meet So Over Debt’s younger cousin, Curiosity Killed the Blog. No, it’s not related to personal finance - in fact, it’s REALLY not related to personal finance. But it still wouldn’t have been possible without this site and all the feedback I get from my readers and fellow bloggers.

I spend a lot of time helping people with various blog-related issues, from deciding whether to start a blog to choosing a name and even setting it up. I absolutely love helping other people share their lives online, so this is one of my favorite things. Unfortunately, though, it can be very time-consuming, and I wanted to find a better way to share information about all things blogging. Plus I didn’t want to bore those of you who aren’t interested in blogging stuff, so it was clear I needed a new home for this aspect of my online life.

Curiosity Killed the Blog is designed to help people get started blogging without throwing their computers through a window. It can be very frustrating to try to figure out all the little things when all you want to do is write some posts. So CKTB will provide information and step-by-step tutorials to help people no matter what level they’re on.

There’s also an option to submit your blogging questions, which will be answered in a post on the site. That’s the feature I’m most excited about! If you are wondering anything at all about starting a blog or website, you can ask right on the site and I’ll let you know when I put up the post that answers your question. I’ll also continue to offer my blog consulting services to help those of you who are ready to try blogging and need some assistance.

So there you go - one mystery solved! I’d love to know what you think of the new site.

    Cool! I should probably use this site, since I get sad realizing how lame my blog is. I want to make it more than it is, but want to do it right, and without making me crazy. Yay! Well add it to my reader, so I can have an awesomesauce blog like yours

    • Andrea @ SoOverDebt

      Thanks Steph! And for the record, your blog is NOT lame. But if there are things you want to change, hopefully you’ll get some inspiration.

  • Mikhaila

    Omg - this is so fantastic! Good for you! I’m so excited to check it out!

    • Andrea @ SoOverDebt

      Thanks, Mikhaila!

  • Shovellicious

    Oh, wow! First of all, congrats on that! And thank you! I’m sure I’ll check it regularly. Now Shovellicious is FOLLOWING CKTB

    • Andrea @ SoOverDebt

      Thanks! I appreciate you!

  • Bridget

    wow very cool! You always have so much up your sleeve haha I feel like I’ll probably be using this site a lot, sometimes I feel like the only one that doesn’t know what’s going on. It took me over a year to migrate my blog to its own host and get google adsense. so much fail.

    • Andrea @ SoOverDebt

      I hear that a lot, and that’s exactly why I started the new site. People always seem afraid to ask questions, but I’ve learned that for every person asking, there are probably 100 more wondering. I hope you’ll submit some questions, whether they’re questions you have now or ones you had in the past!

  • BrokeElizabeth

    Awesome! My blog is still just a li’l baby, so I’ll definitely be perusing CKTB. Thanks for this

    • Andrea @ SoOverDebt

      No problem! Hope you find something useful.

  • Daisy

    Awesome! I’m excited to read more !

  • themomster

    YAY you made it thru the twisters. Hope all is well

    • Andrea @ SoOverDebt

      We’re doing okay. My yard is a mess but at least the house didn’t get damaged!

  • michelle

    Oooh awesome site! I needed something like this because I”m blog-illiterate.

    • Andrea @ SoOverDebt

      Thanks, Michelle!

  • Bogofdebt

    How awesome! I’ve learned some great tips from you and will get to continue to learn! It looks like a great site already.

  • Alice at Dont Debt

    Awesome! I’m a new blogger and need all the help I can get. I’m apparently in the same area as you - and wrote today about how being in debt is like being in a tornado. You might like the comparison… or not. I’m okay with that, too.

    Adding the new blog to my reader.

    • Andrea @ SoOverDebt

      I’m subscribed to your blog, so I’ll have to check out my reader for your post! Glad you made it through the madness okay.

      • Alice at Dont Debt

        Thanks, I appreciate it. And… I just remembered, that’s tomorrows post.

        • Andrea @ SoOverDebt

          I’m glad you pointed that out so I wouldn’t be confused. Clearly I’m unable to read the English language properly.

  • Melissa@LittleHouseintheValley

    Great idea! I wish the new site would have been around when I first started blogging. Looking forward to watching that blog grow as this one has!

    • Andrea @ SoOverDebt

      Thanks, Melissa!

  • DebtnTaxes

    Wish this would of been around about a month ago lol. I will def check it out. I am such a newb when it comes to blogs and websites, so personally I think your new site will rock.

  • Money Infant

    Awesome and the new site looks great Andrea! And if you were already answering all these questions what an inspiration to simply blog about it. Nice!

  • Savvy Scot

    Already checked the site out! Good concept and NICE design - Best of Luck

    • Andrea @ SoOverDebt

      Thank you! I’m shocked to hear someone comment on the design since I did it myself - my sites always look amateur to me. You made my day!

  • Rachel

    Ok I’ve reached my time limit for interwebs this afternoon because my house is a disaster area and must be attended to before my cats assassinate me in my sleep, but I already subscribed my blog twitter account to your new site, and I’ll be adding it to feed reader at work on Monday as well as reading it all, unless of course I can’t stay away until then. I’m totally excited because I’m retarded and I like pictures and instructions when I’m learning something new. Sometime I wonder how a smart person (me) can be so utterly retarded.

    • Andrea @ SoOverDebt

      There’s always something to learn, especially when you’re just starting out. I hope you’ll submit some questions!

      • Rachel

        When I get confused I’ll be all over it…and that tends to happen more often than I’d like to admit lol.

    I think it’s gonna be a great resource for me. Congratulations and good luck!

    • Andrea @ SoOverDebt

      Thanks, Ella! Hope you find helpful info there - feel free to submit a question if there’s anything specific you want to know!

  • Cash Flow Mantra

    I like the design as well since I think mine usually suck more. I subscribed to pick up some good tips. I like that Think Traffic is in your blogroll. I like that one.

    • Andrea @ SoOverDebt

      Thanks for your feedback, JT!

  • Rafiki

    I love the idea, just went through all the posts just to see what it’s like. Another thing I just found out was that you offer blog consulting services. I’ve been thinking about changing up my blog soon and to be completely honest, whenever I get around to it, I was thinking about dropping you an email to have you critique it and give me some tips. Nice to know this is a service you offer. The Q&A on CKTB is also an awesome idea. Maybe I’ll drop a question or too.

    • Andrea @ SoOverDebt

      Sounds good! I hope you do - especially re: sending in questions. I’ve started getting a few and it makes my day!
