On August 5th of 2008 I put up my first post.  I had no idea if anyone would read about my journey, nevertheless care about what was going on in my life, but I wanted to share my thoughts with whoever wanted to read them.  Since putting that first post up I have seen somewhere between 570,000 and 630,000 pageviews (analytics vs sitemeter) and while that is probably a day’s worth of views for a news site I am pretty happy with it, especially since most of the first year or so I was getting under 15 page views a day.

I figured I would go through the full archive of My Journey to Millions and pick out some of my favorite posts in hopes that some of my newer readers can see that my writing was actually even worse back then!  Some of the tax information may have changed but I think these posts stand the test of time almost a half decade later.

It is funny as I built this list there doesn’t seem to be a connection between the topic of the posts, some are financial planning based, some are just about my life, and some are law based.  While there is no topical question I think the style in each of the picks chosen were me being me.

We are only half way through the year but I have some favorites:

If you told me that I would be blogging 4 years later I would have said you were crazy!

  • That is as long as HS,
  • As long as College
  • Longer than I was in Law School
  • One-Third of my Relationship with The Wife (we dated a long time before getting married)
  • It is more than a seventh of my life

This blog has kept me on track with my finances and has opened up opportunities to save money like I never would have imagined.  I started a very viable business with someone I have only met once in real life (I don’t talk about it much here, but it is pretty damn successful); I have shared some of my happiness, scares and tragedies with people I will never meet.  I have actually met like-minded people who have their own blog which is always cool.

For all those things above I want to thank everyone who has ever stopped by my blog.
