If you want to stay on top of everything I write on Financial Samurai, you can subscribe to the Financial Samurai e-mail and private newsletter. The Financial Samurai e-mail is probably the best way to keep in touch.
In 2009, the world was falling apart, and my net worth was taking a beating. I thought it would be a good idea to start a personal finance site to help myself and others make sense of chaos.
After all, I had spent 10 years working in the finance industry, studied economics at William & Mary, got my MBA from UC Berkeley, saved aggressively, diversified my investments, and still got financially rocked!
Since the financial crisis, more than 70 million visitors have stopped by Financial Samurai to learn, share, and grow. I’m also pleased to say that Financial Samurai is in its 13th year of operation in 2021

I Sam hope you can answer me this..
I am working on my Blog, and trying to find the right service for a newsletter,
but noticing its really expensive, there are free services for under 2500 subscribers,,
but i am wondering, do you really have to invest, to have people receive your updates to their email… how to you manage this… seems like an investment, how did you start, did it worked for you, when did you decide to upgrade to paid services…. thx
It’ll take you a while to get to 2,500 subs imo. So I’d start, and then if you have over that, then the cost will be worth it.
Sam I feel like I known you for years lol, but i do know that money is something we can always bring to the table and it’s out there… I’ll try free one for now, which one would you recommend to start, I might grab that monkey one, cause Amazon it’s too much to handle specially I don’t want to used their services or remember to cancel the trial ones… I am really excited about the blog y started lol, this time is serious not like when I did my geocities one back in 2003 , i used to work my part time IT consultant in MX, but here in the US, is a bit different the way things works… hopefully I should be Ok, cause I need to start pursuing the lifestyle I want to live when I retire, and trust me I don’t want to be moving computers when I am in my mid 50’s, so I still got a lot of time to make things good for my family, and what great way helping others and make a decen living. Thx Sam like I said I feel like if I known you for years lol, have a good weekend sir and keep up the good writing!
@RonBoyd feedly works in any browser as of early July….
Change is inevitable and you know, we’ve got to move on. So, moving on then… I’ll take a look at Feedly. Congrats with your forum and newsletter. More power.
Thanks KC. I’ve found Feedly to be the best RSS reader and their app is quite nifty as well. Many readers work well.
Change is inevitable indeed.
Congratulations on the new developments. I have been following you for the better part of 2 years now and the one thing I hope is that you don’t lose the personal ties with the blog as you expand. Content is important, but a personal or emotional attachment is what brings me back.
Thanks Patrick. FS will always have the personal touch so not to worry.
Congrats on both the forum and the newsletter, you’ve been making some ambitious changes lately!
Thanks mate. I enjoy doing new things during the summer when things are slow to capture the upside when things heat up again.
I’m thankful to Google Reader for going away to give me the impetus to start using Aweber and sending out a newsletter once a quarter. I’ll be strategizing what’s in store.
I see you have implemented Aweber for your newsletter. I have been using it for just over a year on my blog (haironfirepm.com) and very happy with the service.
One quick suggestion for Aweber – when a user signs up for the service you can direct them to a personalized page on your website rather than the default Aweber “confirmation page.” Simply create a “thank you” page and then redirect the users in the aweber control panel. You have the option in the step after you create the sign up form.
Thanks Roshan. Will look into it.
Feedly now has a Internet Explorer version?
Feedly, BlogLovin, The Older Reader etc will work on any internet browswer.
And yet Feedly’s website claims they will only make it available to Internet Explorer some unknown time in the future… perhaps.
Feel free to use the other RSS readers if Feedly doesn’t work for you.
Glad to hear the FS Forum is going well Sam! Just finished the survey I think its great to get reader feedback. Especially about the posting and content length. Great way to put the community first.
Thanks for filling out the survey Thomas. I take all feedback to heart. Looks like there’s about 70 responses so far which is great. A lot of good feedback to implement.
Nice job starting a quarterly newsletter! And that’s cool you’re going to be using Aweber. I’ve used them for several years already and really like their platform. I filled out your FS survey and am looking forward to hearing the feedback from other readers. Keep up the good work!
Thanks for your write-up on implementing Aweber on Yakezie.com. Very helpful!
