Blogging: One Year Later

I made it!


It’s officially been one year since I started blogging here on Stretching My Money. Did I think I’d make it this far? Definitely not. But here I am, one year later!

In that time, I’ve written about many things, ranging from net worth updates, travel, favourite board games, and even our mortality. Who says personal finance blogs can venture into new territory?

In that time, I have personal favourite posts that resonated with many of you, and others that didn’t. But heck – this is my anniversary so I’m going to list my favourite posts from the past year, regardless of the number of views:

#1 Got plans for retirement? Don’t wait till 65. – A really popular post. I learned a lot from my girlfriend’s late father, but the biggest lesson was remembering to balance living in the now. Focusing too much on the future can rob us of our present.

#2 What Improv Classes Taught Me About Life & Lifestyle – I did training at The Second City and so while I’m supposed to be certifiably funny, I decided to divert my energy in writing about how it’s helped my frugal philosophy.

#3 My Biggest Financial Mistake – I bought a $30,900 depreciating asset. Check it out to see what I learned from that horrid mistake.

#4 Laziness is Costing Us Money – I observe first hand people paying more for things when they don’t need to. The biggest hindrance is our inability to put in that extra bit of effort.

#5 Quintupling My Salary in 7 Years – My career journey has been certainly bizarre, but that also helped me have huge salary gains over the past 7 years. Here are the lessons I took away from my career so far.

So one year and one top 5 list down, hopefully many more to come.

Thanks for reading!
