Two Years Down, Many More to Go!

It’s hard to believe almost two years have passed since we dove into the personal finance world together with a crazy story about considering opportunity costs in terms of junior bacon cheeseburgers. I guess time flies when you're having fun. I have enjoyed 2MuchCents, and I hope you have as well. will close out 2013 with almost 14,000 views spread over 14 countries! For that, I thank you.

A lot of bloggers start strong, but run out of ideas. I admit I have some spells where I battle writer’s cramp a bit more than I would like, but I’m definitely not afraid of topics drying up. Between your questions, your friends’ questions, your family members’ questions, new things I learn and experience, and never-ending changes and developments in this crazy world we live in, I think I could probably write forever. I already have plans in 2014 to post about why you need to save now as opposed to later, how you can keep as much of your family’s money in your family as possible, and why I think you should be a “contrary” investor. I also want to take a close look at index funds, offer some tips on buying a car, do another lighting round (where all I do is answer your questions), and write a short series on how I would advise someone to position themselves so they can retire early. (You’re not interested in retiring early are you?) Despite my plans and future posts already in progress, please know I get the most joy out of directly helping people like you by answering your questions; whether it gives me an opportunity to do a blog about your topic or not.

In case you missed any posts, the five most popular posts of the year were:
  1. This Diamond Ring
  2. It Happens
  3. Last Call
  4. The Homemaker Retirement Plan
  5. All That Glitters Is Not Gold
I think one more blog post is worth mentioning, My Uncle’s Living Expenses, because I got a lot of in-person comments on that one. After mentioning it again, maybe I’ll get more!

Let me once again thank Mr. Andrew Davis for his tireless edits and content advice. I also need to thank my special lady, Mrs. Lindley Presley, for her continued encouragement, social media guidance, and grammatical expertise. I could not produce 2MuchCents without those two individuals.

Here’s to a healthy, happy, and financially successful 2014!
