My Journey to Millions is an 8 year old personal finance blog.  Part of running a personal finance blog is understanding how to blog and interact with other bloggers.  The posts found in this category have to do with blogging and the nuts and bolts of blogging.  Not all posts within this category have to do with personal finances.

What Happens to Personal Finance Bloggers After they Stop Blogging?

When I first started this blog, 8 years ago, I was completely  into the whole "personal finance blog" scene.  I would be completely inundated with the life and decisions of other bloggers.  I would share a lot more of what was happening, personally and professionally, and at some point they would know more about my financial life than family and close friends.  This lasted for probably 4 or 5 years! But then bloggers would come and go without a trace, and I never really gave it much thought.  If I had to give a number I would say 98.5% of bloggers just [...]

The #1 Problem with 99% Of Personal Finance Blogs

If you are someone who prides themselves on reading personal finance blogs, give yourself a pat on the back! Very few people take the time to educate themselves on the best financial practices, depriving themselves of valuable information that could save them tens of thousands of dollars! There are so many blogs out there that you couldn’t possibly go wrong with picking just one! Or could you? While these blogs mean well with the information that they deliver, there is just one problem that 99% of them have. This one problem single-handedly robs you of the financial freedom that you could be [...]

I Can’t Believe I Have Been Blogging for 5 Years!

August 5th came and went without me even thinking about the fact that I it is the anniversary of when I started this little site! It is weird to think about how engrained this site has become in my life...it is just something I "do."  I was so oblivious that the date was coming up that I wrote a post that would be perfect about how my financial life has changed about a month and a half ago.  Wow that would have been perfect lol! Instead I decided on continuing the list I created last year about my favorite posts throughout the [...]

Google Reader is Going Away

A lot of readers receive my posts using Google Reader.  Well on July 1st the service will be shut down.  Please make sure to transfer your RSS feeds.  I like The Old Reader but a lot of people have moved over to Feedly.

How I Make Money Blogging

I have shared a lot of my financial details on this site including my investment strategies, my growing net worth and even a secret business I want to open up, but I have never discussed how this blog operates as a business.  Until today.  I have no real interest in running the type of blog that really “teaches” how to blog I wouldn’t find it interesting enough to keep it up; The Financial Blogger does a 1000x better job than I ever could (he also makes a lot more than I do and clears a good amount more). First and foremost, I [...]
