Twelve Posts of Review – May 2007

Written by

[In this series, I'm reviewing some of my better posts of 2007. If you started reading this blog in the middle of the year, this is a good time to catch up.]

To begin the month of May, I compared Compound Interest and the NFL. I brought up how the Patriots traded the #28 pick of the current draft for San Francisco's first round pick in the upcoming draft. It looks like San Francisco might be picking in the top 10. The Patriots could probably trade this pick for #20 and #28 in this draft. This is a gain of a #20 overall pick simply because they were willing to wait a year.

I also wrote about the Top Ten Ways Personal Finance Blogging has Helped Me. This might have been one of my favorite articles.

I also introduced compound interest week. In addition to that introduction, there was also a post on the real rate of return. I then compared the real rate of return in a high interest saving account vs. the real rate of return in the stock market.

My whimsical look at the top 5 paths to a million dollars, got a lot of attention, especially considering that I wrote it in about 20 minutes.

I wrote about why, you shouldn't depend on blogging for an income and gave some better options for those at the end of their rope. Six months later, I would try to do that to a large degree.

A news article came up that Americans are living larger than usual. I argued that people are just living differently. Unexpectedly, it turned into a two-part article.

Lastly, I challenged the notion that you need 80% of your income to retire.
