My Honest Thoughts on Hillbilly Elegy

Welcome to my weekly Book-ish post where I share what I’ve been reading and watching recently. If you missed it, you can see my Reading Goals for 2018 and 44 Books I Plan to Read This Year

(Note: Some of the links in this post are affiliate links, and we will be compensated when you make a purchase by clicking through our links. Read our disclosure policy here.)

I’ve seen Hillbilly Elegy mentioned over and over again by various different people online and in podcasts. I didn’t plan to read it because the premise didn’t really interest me that much.

But then I saw that it happened to be available on the Libby app, so I went ahead and put a hold on it just because so many people had recommended it.

I started listening to it and almost didn’t continue because there was so much language in it (seriously! Do not listen to this with kids around — there are a LOT of curse words!)

Here’s the part of the premise of the book from the back cover:

From a former marine and Yale Law School graduate, a probing look at the struggles of America’s white working class through the author’s own story of growing up in a poor Rust Belt town.

Hillbilly Elegy is a passionate and personal analysis of a culture in crisis—that of poor, white Americans. The disintegration of this group, a process that has been slowly occurring now for over forty years, has been reported with growing frequency and alarm, but has never before been written about as searingly from the inside. In Hillbilly Elegy, J.D. Vance tells the true story of what a social, regional, and class decline feels like when you were born with it hanging around your neck.

I thought the book was surprising, pretty fair and balanced (I expected the author to lean strongly to one side of the political aisle or the other — and that the book would be more politically charged as a result), and a very insightful look into how our upbringing can affect our life trajectory in such a powerful way.

While I wish there weren’t so much crass language and cussing in the book (though I think it’s likely just the author being truthful and honest to how his family actually talked), I think the book is worth reading — if you can stomach all of the f-bombs in it.

I would be curious to hear from other people who were raised in this same region and social class — to know their perspective on the things he shares. It’s the type of book I’d love to read with a Book Club because I found it caused me to have so many thought and questions and things I wanted to discuss with others who had read it.

Have you read it? If so, I’d love to hear what you thought — whether you liked it or totally disliked it.

When I Find Time to Read

People are always asking me how I find time to read. Honestly, it’s because I love to read, because I’ve chosen to prioritize it, because I don’t have a lot of other hobbies, and because I can’t not read. Also, when you love something, you usually can find ways to get creative to find time to fit it in — even if it’s in the little nooks and crannies of life.

I wrote a post on 3 ways to find more time to read — even when life is busy. And here are 7 more ways to find time to read.

What did you read and watch this past week? Any books or movies or shows you really think I need to read or watch?

Bloggers: I want to critique your blog for you!

Today is the last day to get The Genius Blogger’s Toolkit — an amazing bundle of 77 different high-value blogging resources.

To sweeten this incredible deal even further, I’m offering something I’ve never offered before to every single person who purchases: I will personally critique your blog or website! {More details on that offer at the end of this post!}

Is This Really Worth the Money?

I’ve gotten a number of questions from you about the Toolkit and some of you have asked me whether it’s worth the investment. I love that you are thinking critically and carefully about how you spend your money.

First off, let’s talk about what you get for the price: This Toolkit is a collection of 15 eBooks, 41 eCourses & videos, 9 printables & workbooks, 10 templates & stock photo packages and 2 membership sites — over $5,800 worth of products for just $97.

When you purchase, you’ll get resources with step-by-step instructions to get started, how to grow your email list, the best ways to monetize your blog, and so much more. It’s basically a comprehensive collection of products from some of the most respected voices in the blogging space on all things blogging.

This year's most up-to-date collection of blogging resources at a no-brainer price.

I’m Overwhelmed! Help!

I know that there is a LOT of information in this Toolkit — and it can make you feel like it’s just too much!

Before you start feeling all overwhelmed by the time it might take to try to complete all the courses or read through all the ebooks, STOP! Instead, I want you go through the list of products and choose at least 3-4 eBooks or eCourses that will give you huge benefits right where you are.

Common sense wisdom might tell you that you should go through every single product in a bundle like this. But here’s the thing: I want you to focus more on doing and implementing rather than on just reading about what to do or collecting more information.

So, I want you to just focus on those eCourses or eBooks and decide that are the top priorities for you to dive into right now. You can always go through other courses down the road (you have a YEAR to sign up for them/download them), but start with those that are going to make the most immediate impact in your life and business.
The Genius Blogger's Toolkit

Where Do I Start?

If you need some suggestions on which courses you should focus on, here are some lists of resources I put together that might be pertinent to your individual situation and needs (obviously, these are just suggestions! Feel free to make your own list based upon what resources in the Toolkit jump out to you!):

I want to succeed as a beginner…

If you’re just getting started blogging, consider prioritizing going through:

I want to increase my traffic…

If you’ve been blogging for awhile and want to increase your traffic, you might prioritize going through:

I want to make more money…

If you want to figure out how to make more money from blogging, you might prioritize going through:

I want to manage my time better…

Perhaps you need help with managing your time as a blogger, so you might prioritize going through:

This is just a small listing of all the courses available in this Toolkit… there is truly something for just about everyone. I’ve been blogging for over 13 years and I downloaded quite a few different courses from it and am so excited to go through them myself!

The Genius Blogger's Toolkit

Would You Like Me to Critique Your Blog?

Because I want you to succeed as a blogger and because I want you to buy this fantastic Toolkit and actually USE it and benefit from it, I am offering something I’ve never done before: I’m offering you the opportunity to get a completely free blog critique from me personally if you purchase the Toolkit and take action on it.

Yes, that means I’ll go to your blog and personally give you pointers on ways you can improve it, ideas I have for ways you can increase your traffic, and suggestions for how to better monetize it.

Here’s how to qualify for a FREE blog critique from me:

  1. Click here and purchase The Genius Blogger’s Toolkit, if you haven’t already.
  2. Look through all of the products in the Toolkit and send me an email (crystal@moneysavingmom.com) and tell me what 3-4 resources you are going to commit to going through in the next two months.
  3. Go through the 3-4 resources you committed to go through by December 15, 2018.
  4. Shoot me an email once you’ve gone through them and send me your blog address and I’ll personally go through your blog and give you a customized critique and feedback specifically for ways you can increase your traffic and income (or I’m happy to give you critique/feedback on specific topic if you’d prefer that!
