Why another Money Blog?

Hello everyone. As you read in “About Me” this blog is meant to simply share information on money. Why did I decide to blog about money? On a daily basis I come in contact with people who have questions about their money and want to make sure that they will have enough. Enough money on which to retire, or to do the things that they want to do. In short, people who want to protect their money and make it grow. I also come in contact with folks with ostrich qualities (head in the sand), who figure that it will all work out somehow, and then just about everyone in between. So, if you are truly independently wealthy this blog is probably not for you. This blog is aimed at folks who want to figure out how to create a plan to get on the road to financial independence, or tweak their plan, to improve their chances of staying on that road.

Money is completely intertwined in just about every thing we do in life. It’s the air we breathe financially. Educating oneself about your own personal finance is completely up to the individual – no-one is going to do it for you. There is rarely an incentive for those who are trying to deplete your financial reserves, and increase theirs, to educate you on what their tactics are, sometimes known as the “fine print.”

Talking about one’s money is still taboo for a very large percentage of our population. Folks are still coy about talking openly about their money, their investments, their debts, their money choices, good or bad – and as a result, often they continue to make the same choices. Now if those choices are working for you, keep at it, but if they are not, talk with someone, or start your own education plan. Many people are more comfortable seeking this information anonymously, and this medium to an extent affords that.

So, this is just a forum to review information, make comments, ask questions and share your insights, so that we can all be a tad better informed about our money. This column is not about any “high brow” angles about money, folks who need that, I am sure have their analysts on retainer. It will not intentionally go into the treatises of economists, and financiers, it seeks simply to shed some light on how to save some more of your hard-earned money, so that you will have some to invest and grow.

If you find what we say here to be meaningful and informative, we hope you will share the information with your friends.
