Cheesy Finance is three years old, now what?
Three years old, now what?
Today marks 3 years since our first post: “what to expect?”. Never expected that I could keep going this long and even have (many?) people follow along! But it is the new contacts and the supporting comments that make it all worth it. So thank you for reading, thank you for commenting and thank you for being such a supportive bunch of people. Mrs CF and me had fun and it looks like you did too.
The first ever commenter on this blog was No More Waffles, who had also been a inspiration for the blog. Mate, if you ever read this, hope you are doing well and that you are well on your way to FIRE on your dividends. Thank you for kicking off well over 2.200 comments by now from various readers. In total we wrote over 250 posts, some of it useful, some of it utter nonsense.
This blog is also a labour of love, as I’m barely breaking even on expenses (actually I’m not), despite about 500 daily visitors and around 40.000-60.000 page views per month.
To be brutally honest, I have no idea! The series “Should you buy …..” is getting great feedback, so I’d like to do more of those. There are also some other topics I’d like to dig into and research a bit more. Estate planning is one of them. Seems to be a bit overlooked, as most stories are about making money, not transferring is smartly to the next generation. Since not everyone is going to turn 80 or 90 years old, you have to have a good plan (will/testament) in place, even if you are in the prime of your life.
As I wrote earlier, my level of motivation for many things (including this blog) fluctuates. Perhaps I have to drop the monthly overviews and only focus on 1 more detailed post per week. One with more content. Time will tell, but I’m not ready to completely give up on this blog. There are too many things still floating in my mind that I need to write down.
Anyhow, as noted before, thanks for reading! Let’s see if you (and us) can make it to four years 🙂
