Emails Keep Coming

It's been almost two months since I posted here last and I'm still getting emails requesting access to the new blog.  So, as promised, I'm posting here again until no one asks for the site's address. If you want an email sent to you with my new site listed, simply leave a comment below like "please send me the URL to your new site". […]

Still Looking for an Email from Me?

It seems that every time I think I've reached everyone who wants to be notified of my new site, another 100 people or so seem to show up asking for access. So my plan is to keep posting here every couple of weeks or so until no one asks for the site's address. If you want an email sent to you with my new site listed, simply leave a comment below like "please send me the URL to your new site". […]

Do You Want an Email from Me?

I'm still getting quite a few people saying they requested and didn't receive an update to my new blog. So I'll post here a few more times just to make sure whoever wants to be included gets a notice.

Note, there were a couple that had spam protection levels where I needed to verify myself to send an email to a particular address. […]

Checking in and New Blog

Hello, all. I hope this message finds you doing well. A lot has happened to me since I went on hiatus, very interesting stuff indeed (many twists and turns). One major change is that my time has freed up and I'm going to be starting a new blog. You may wonder why I'd start a new one and not just keep this one. There are a couple reasons for that: 1. […]

FMF on Hiatus

Well, as they say, all good things must end. Or at least take a break. I started this blog over nine years ago simply to chronicle my financial thoughts and progress. Now, nearly a decade later, it's time to put down my keyboard. Whether that's for a moment or forever is yet to be determined. […]
