Cheesy Finance celebrates it’s 5th year of blogging today! Thank you all for reading, commenting, clicking and investing during the last 1827 days of madness!
Cheesy Finance is 5 years old
In personal finance circles, we are actually dinosaurs! Well, we are not as old as grandpa Geldnerd, but still. We’ve been around for a while. It’s been a wonderful journey! We learned a lot, talked a lot, fantasied about castles and yachts. Life has been treating us well too. No complaining from our end.

What’s the plan?
Good question, I have no idea! We are still renovating our property to make it into two rental properties. I’m still waiting for the Corona effects to disappear so I can continue with the Barista FIRE lifestyle I was enjoying earlier this year. We continue to look for a (new) property of our own.
However, with the various uncertainties due to his virus, we have not been able to make any real plans what to do with our lives going forward. Time will tell.
The blog has been interesting, but also quite a lot of work. Going forward I’m only going to post whenever I feel like it. Whenever I have something new to mention (unlikely, most of what I wanted to research, I already did. Albeit taxes never stay the same!). Or if I need to rant. The latter is likely what will happen 😉
Anyhow, thank you again for being readers of this blog. Thanks for those of you that are following us on Twitter. We appreciate your support and feedback. We hope to see some of you in the future in a castle, during a FIRE meetup or for coffee/beer. Until that time, take care, spend less than you make, invest the rest and repeat. But only do so while enjoying the journey that is called life!
Hope you join us for another 1827 days of madness!
