A Brief Blog Profile: Don't Quit Your Day Job

by Thomas Hynes


In their own words, Don't Quit Your Day Job is a "resource for people who wish to discuss personal finance, economics, politics and investing with other individuals of a curious persuasion."  The site is written by three guys originally from Boston. And in case you were wondering, they all still hold day jobs. They're apparently practicing what they preach.  Also, since they're from Boston, they call their readers 'chief.' Now THAT is genuine Boston!

And really this whole blog is pretty genuine. Today, at the top of the page, there's a post that debates whether one should get a degree or drive a truck. I read that headline, think about mounting debt, diminishing job opportunities and think to myself: Now that's an interesting question. And I'm immediately compelled to read more. Like the bulk of the content found on Don't Quit Your Day Job, it's a funny post backed up with solid and informed evidence. There are even charts!

There's also a look at the failing debt committee and the bigger problems we face. They examine the best credit card spending strategy. There's even a post on what ages are best for financial prowess. (Hint: it's 45-49.) There's even a post where one of the writers turns his attention inward and dissects his own spending habits. After all, these guys aren't technically experts. They haven't quit their day jobs. Neither should you.

News Widget

Our widget allows you to display PR Newswire content on your site with very little back-end programming required.  You not only get the headline, but also the body of text of the news release, keeping the user on your site at all times.  In order to do so, the difference between our Widget and other widgets is at the end of the sign-up process, you will be provided with two pieces of source code -- one for the page where the Widget itself will be displayed and one for the pages that will display the body of text of each news release.  In addition, the sign-up process allows you to have 100 percent control over every aspect of the Widget's appearance, so that the Widget can blend in fully with the look and feel of your site. Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
