It was a great week in both the work and blog world. Though in the Investment world not so much as the markets have been much more volatile so far in 2014. Heck the DJIA lost over 300 points on Friday. But that's music to my ears as that brings prices of great companies into better value areas. As far as work is concerned, we finished another well, this time in just 11 days which is pretty good. We've had better wells but 11 is still a good time.
A few months back I was going to start working on posts for Seeking Alpha, but between work and the holidays at the end of the year I just didn't really have the time. I posted a stock analysis on Chevron here in my own piece of the internet and also cross-listed it on Seeking Alpha. I went with the cross-listing instead of exclusive content for Seeking Alpha to see what the reception is like and based on the first day I think I might start writing some exclusive content as well. I'll still keep up the regular posting here but I think Seeking Alpha could provide another source of side hustle income to help me reach financial independence as early as possible.
I want to thank all of you for your help and encouragement and for helping us all learn and grow. Thank you all for stopping by, commenting and sharing posts from Passive-Income-Pursuit this past week.
