Joining the 30k Challenge

Today I am joining the Online Money Bloggers 30k Challenge. I am sure you have heard of the sweeping phenomenon that has been created by Derek from Life and My Finances and Corey from 20's Finances. If you haven't heard about it, well, perk up your ears and I'll tell you all about it.

The 30k Challenge is pretty self explanatory. It's a friendly competition to earn 30k in a year from blogging, staff writing and advertising. There are a few requirements but for the most part anyone can join. All the challengers will write guest posts on ways to earn more or how they working towards their goal.

This challenge is going to be quite a stretch for me, considering I only made about three grand from blogging this year. So, I will literally have to amplify my efforts ten fold. As always, I am up for a challenge.

2012 is looking to be an interesting year for me. With the debt out of the way, I feel there are many avenues that need to be explored as I attempt to reach financial independence. Earning more income is just one more facet in the long line of things that we need to strive for.

The challenge starts January 1, 2012. Good luck to all the challengers and happy earnings!
