For the past eighteen months, I’ve declined invitations for Get Rich Slowly to participate in blog memes or join blogging networks. They just don’t seemed appropriate for the site. As with everything, however, there are exceptions.

I’m proud to announce that this site has joined two excellent blog networks: LifeRemix and the Money Blog Network.

What does this mean to you, the reader? Not much directly. Behind the scenes, these networks will help GRS to grow, which in turn ought to generate more income, which will allow me to reduce my hours at the day job, which means I can spend more time producing quality content about investing, frugality, and personal finance!

Meanwhile, I’ve added a small blogroll to the sidebar with links to other member sites. Every Friday, I’ll highlight recent posts from the Money Blog Network, and I’ll make an effort to point to great posts from my LifeRemix colleagues more frequently.

But what are these networks about?

LifeRemix is a group of great sites focused on enriching people’s lives. These blogs — most of which I read regularly already — explore clever ways to make life easier and more enjoyable. It’s exciting to be teamed with these sites:

  • Behance — A motivational blog for the creative community.
  • Cranking Widgets — “Getting things done, productivity, and life hacks for the rest of us.”
  • Dumb Little Man — This group-authored site offers “tips for life”. A favorite.
  • Experiments in Lifestyle Design — A couple of weeks ago, I reviewed The 4-Hour Workweek. Author Tim Ferriss has a fascinating blog devoted to lifestyle design, the art of creating the sort of life you want.
  • Freelance Switch — “A community and resource for freelancers of all types.”
  • The Happiness Project — “On this daily blog, I recount some of my adventures and insights as I grapple with the challenge of being happier.” I love this concept.
  • IKEA Hacker — I still haven’t been to an IKEA, though one recently opened here in Portland. When I do go, I’ll be sure to take inspiration from this site devoted exclusively to making the most of the store’s products.
  • LifeClever — “LifeClever helps you design, work, and live better.”
  • LifeDev — “Personal development that focuses on creativity, productivity, and Getting Things Done.”
  • No Impact Man — In May I mentioned this blog that profiles the story of a family attempting to go “off-the-grid” in the middle of New York City! Still fascinating.
  • Pick the Brain — John Wesley writes one of my favorite blogs on self-improvement. Here at GRS, he’s shared the top three mental blocks to personal finance (and how to get past them).
  • Success From the Nest — I believe that entrepreneurship is one of the best ways to achieve financial independence. Success From the Nest tackles this topic head-on.
  • Unclutterer — “Unclutterer is the blog about getting and staying organized. A place for everything, and everything in its place is our gospel.” As I work to declutter my life, I’ve come to love this site.
  • Wise Bread — A team-authored blog covering a range of personal development topics (but especially money).
  • Zen Habits — Zen Habits is one of my favorite blogs. A few weeks ago, Leo shared a guest post at GRS about how to eliminate debt in bursts instead of incrementally.

The Money Blog Network boasts some of the most-established and best-respected personal finance bloggers around. It’s an honor to be invited into the group. Other members include:

I’m excited for Get Rich Slowly to be teaming with these sites, and hope that the collaborations will allow me to continue bringing you excellent personal finance tips, tricks, and ideas for years to come.
