There are scads of personal finance blogs…many of which, of course, are specific to financial independence and early retirement. I’ve tried to set this one apart by easing back from predominately technical material—“money mechanics” like Roth conversions and such—and instead focusing on the more inspirational & philosophical & entertaining & humorous aspects of FIRE that I’ve learned about from having been out of the workforce these last thirteen years.
And as you’ve probably figured out, I love BSing around and telling stories.
But ultimately this blog’s about you. I can sit here slinging words all day, but if you’re not finding them valuable, and if they’re not making your day a little brighter, then I’m only slinging a bunch of narcissistic shite to no good purpose. Talking to hear myself talk, in other words. You don’t need that.
And so: why do you come here? What do you expect to find? What’s working for you and what isn’t? What do you want more of and what do you want less of? Are there subjects I don’t get into that you’d like to see me cover? Would you like more frequent posts? Less frequent?
In short, how can I make your visits more worth your while?
If you have suggestions and/or observations and/or criticisms, I’d very much appreciate it if you’d leave them in the comments section. Don’t worry that I’ll get defensive: as the owner of this place I own it, so to speak. Anybody who’s ever worked retail will tell you that the customers aren’t always right, but you’d damn well better listen to them, and you’d damn well better do so humbly.
So I’m listening.
