The Financial Monkey -Writing Experiment

by Sandy L on October 12, 2010

Thinking Monkey

In an effort to draw upon the talents of the many aspiring writers out there, I’m proposing a little writing experiment.

Anyone who wants to join is welcome but the premise is this: A group of bloggers will all write an article about a certain odd ball topic and all post the resulting content on the same day.

At least from my observations, bloggers have very different views and come from all walks of life, so it’s unlikely that any 2 articles will be the same.  I also personally find it entertaining when people weave random things together and turn it into an interesting story.

If successful, we can turn this into a monthly thing and even pick our favorite articles of the lot.  It looks like I’ve got at least 5 takers for the first round, so let’s see how it goes.

Here are the rules:

1. Spread the word.

 2. Write an article that ties monkeys or other primates to some personal finance lesson or topic.

3. Post the article on your website.

4. Link to this original post or email me…so that I can do a monkey round-up.

5. Post on Monday October 25th.

Good Luck.  I can’t wait to see what wacky correlations unfold.

I’m in. What’s funny is that I have a lot of experience with primates, so writing about them won’t be too difficult. The hard part will be tying it in to PF!

Great news. As I’m starting to think about it, there are actually a lot of ideas that are popping into my head. Now I’ll have to pick one and run with it.

Thanks guys and gals. I can’t wait to see the resulting day of articles.

Sounds very creative. I cannot wait to read these posts. Who knows, maybe I’ll think of something to write about myself 🙂
