Wow, what can I say? I never thought I would make it this far and definitely not this fast. When I started this blog I wasn't sure how much and at what frequency I would post. It all started with an idea to keep myself in check financially and keep a running blog of my progress. As I started writing some post about some of my experiences with personal finance, it slowly started to evolve into how government interference can effect our finances. This got me researching about economics, and how this effects our lives, our money and our freedoms. It has now transformed into a study guide/diary for economics, personal finances and my beliefs.
I don't post as much on personal finance based on there are tons of PF bloggers that strictly cover that, and I am not going to bring that much new stuff to the table. If I come across a good article or an experience I will write about it, but you end up seeing a lot of bloggers write about the same things. Only a few truly bringing unique and interesting ideas and writings to their blogs. If you have been reading this blog for a while you will know I have cut back slightly on my writing because I just don't have the time. Maintaining a blog is a full time job in itself, and I have a regular job so I only get a certain amount of time everyday on this blog. I will mostly post stuff that I find relevant like videos, articles, comics, images, etc...that I learn from and hopefully you can learn from as well.
A big thank you to the readers of my blog, for without you I wouldn't have the motivation to post as often as I do. I appreciate everyone that comments on my posts, even if we disagree. Matter of fact, I enjoy someone else's perspective, I truly look at both sides and I don't think I know everything, but form my opinions from hearing both sides.
I want to thank everyone who has My Money Shrugged in their blogrolls, it really mean so much to me and I am honored that people would recommend my blog to their readers.
Last I want to make this blog a community where people can gather information and learn how to create wealth and what responsibilities we as Americans have to run our country. We cannot allow government bureaucrats, lobbyist, big corporations and the Fed control us while destroying our wealth. So if you ever have a link, idea, or tip please send my way. If you ever have desire to write a guest post, please reach out and contact me and please keep spreading the word of this blog and invite more people to come learn while this blog continues to grow, change, evolve into a resource for everyday people to learn about finances and economics.
Thanks from MMS
