Financial Press Gazette is now live, baby! I decided to finally launch this bad boy after months and months of thinking about it :) If you’re one of my V.I.P. Newsletter members you’ve already gotten a sneak peek at it already (or possibly if you follow my twitter account), but today I’m announcing it to the world.
FP Gazette will basically be a database of all the financial news and press releases I get emailed to me from PR agencies and other financial outlets. As a blogger, I’m always getting sent some great information about the latest financial products or news bits hitting the scene, but unfortunately I can only blog about so much. So instead of blowing up Budgets Are Sexy with all these financial press releases, I figured I’d start another site where those who are interested in them can click on over and get this great info ASAP.
It won’t have the J. Money flair to the articles like this site does (B.A.S. is a personal finance blog, whereas FP Gazette is more an informational site), but if you’re looking for straight up news and info as it hits, the Gazette is where it’s at. In the last 2 weeks I’ve posted up info on giveaways, free advice days, financial polls & research, new iPhone apps, discount sites, and even thoughts on Senate Banking Committees! (whatever that is ;)). Basically, a whole assortment of financial goodness that is now out there for people to see instead of deleted in my inbox.
So check it out my friends! And if you couldn’t care less, well, that’s fine too :) Budgets Are Sexy will still be rockin’ and rollin’ as always, and you can pretend I never said anything… Here’s to a financially sound weekend everyone!
UPDATE: I have since sold this project :)
