My Money Blog

Twitter: @mymoneyblog

I started this blog because I graduated college and found myself working a 9-6 job, making some decent money but not knowing what to do with it. I had opened a Roth IRA and bought some random mutual fund chosen from a magazine, but it really bugged me that I didn’t know anything about investments at all. What should I buy? How much is enough? How long do I have to work in this cubicle? I tried asking some friends, but they didn’t know either. And it’s hard to talk money in public - incomes seem to be really private, nobody knows who has more money saved. Money is just taboo. So here I am, spilling my beans and writing about it online and anonymously instead. Just like the name, this site is about my money - how I make more of it, how I try to spend less of it, and how I invest it. I have been publicly tracking our progress towards financial freedom since 2004. See for yourself by taking a peek at our net worth and our investment portfolio. To clarify, the net worth listed above is for both my wife and I, as we treat my money = her money = our money. However, I’m the only author of this blog. I am now 30 years old and live in an expensive place in the Western US. Married, no kids, 2 dogs. Currently my wife and I both work full-time jobs, but a major career goal is to be able to both work half-time when we do get around to having kids. I also do freelance consulting and make money off of websites including this one. We enjoy skiing, hiking, and eating at hole-in-the-wall restaurants. I am not a financial guru. I don’t speak at get-rich-quick seminars and I don’t write books. What I will do is be very open about my financial life. I don’t claim to know it all, and in fact I am learning new things every day. If I mess up, you’ll know. If I come across a neat way to make or save money, you’ll read about it here. I just love this stuff and tinkering with different financial products or money-making ideas. With any luck, perhaps we’ll meet up in the Caymans some day.
