Wow! I can’t believe I’ve been here for 7 years. Still going strong BTW. Even after 7 years, I’ve barely skimmed the surface when it comes to the fascinating world of Personal Finances.
Without further ado, let’s look at the 7 most read posts of the blog, by year.
Financial set-backs and debt-fatigue: I was venting and reflecting on some financial challenges that I was tackling at the time. I’ve come a long way since, but had to be diligent and disciplined.
The case for earning more money: most PF bloggers put a huge emphasis on cutting expenses, in order to pay off debt or save money. I think increasing your income first is the better way to proceed. You can only go so low with cutting back. In terms of income, however, the sky is the limit.
Perceived wealth vs. actual wealth: looks can be deceiving. Just because someone drives a fancy car or wears designer’s clothes doesn’t mean they’re actually wealthy.
Retirement planning mistakes-part 1: retirement is always a hot topic. Part 2 was the 2nd most read blog post that year.
When financial literacy is not enough: there is a lot of talks about “financial literacy”. However, if you don’t have money to apply the concepts behind it, you won’t go far.
Alternatives to big cable companies: this is one of the most read posts on this blog. People are looking for cheaper options to the regular cable guys. Luckily, there are plenty nowadays. A lot of people end-up cutting cable altogether.
PC Express review: I talk about my disastrous experience with the click-and-collect service of PC. That being said, not all is bad with PC. I love their Optimum points program.
2021 so far
The value of time: reflecting on how I spend and value my time. Ultimately, we all have the same 24 hours in any given day. However, our financial situation greatly impacts how we spend our time.
