There are plenty of online marketing sites such as PF Buzz, TIPD, FWISP, DIGG etc to highlight posts and increase breadth of readership. Anybody know which ones are the best if I had to just focus on a couple? It seems like one big popularity contest, which brings back fond memories of High School (maybe not). If anybody wants to submit for me, feel free!
The traffic really is expanding here, especially from overseas countries like China & The Philippines. International perspectives are always great and I hope our Indian brothers also join in the foray some day.
Sorry if I don’t respond to your e-mails and Twitters during the day. I shut things off and focus on paying the bills, usually until 7pm PST. I don’t have a personal PDA or anything either (what’s an iPhone?), but I promise to get back to your inquires when I return!
CONCLUSIONS FROM THE WEEK ON FINANCIAL SAMURAI:
* In a sit down with Warren Buffet, he advises us to work for a person and organization we admire and forget about the money. Bill says we need “brash confidence” in ourselves to succeed. I agree! If you don’t have confidence in yourself, who will?
* Thousands of readers read “Why Are There Homeless Veterans In America?” Now if thousands of readers could write to the White House HERE and tell them your concerns, perhaps we can make a difference. Took me 2 minutes. Thanks Susan for the tip!
* Most people would wisely save their $8.5 million poker winnings, which is really only around $4.5 million after taxes! Yet some of you are even more adventurous and would buy a business or stocks with the proceeds. I’m just happy with the $160,000+ a year in risk-free interest income! Thanks Evan from My Journey To Millions for reminding us about gift tax consequences. Party poopa!
* Finally, I want to remind folks that it’s never too late to fight to lower your property taxes! Don’t let the government take away your hard earned money as they are counting on the masses to be lazy. Alex, hope your real estate readers found it useful. Fight on!
Thanks for everybody’s continued support. Never feel shy to comment, as your voice is ALWAYS welcome!
