Readers, for the next few days, I’m in full-time swim parent mode which means I don’t have much time to write. If I was more on top of things, I would have pre-written a few posts to get me through the weekend. But I’m a Financial Slacker after all. As such, posts over the next few days will be rather short and sweet. But no less impactful.
Also, my response time to email and comments will be a little slow. I appreciate your understanding.
One of the great things about writing on this site every day is that I’m constantly looking for things that interest me and might make a good post or even better, a great full-length featured article.
When I started this site, I really had no idea what I was doing. I didn’t know why I was building the site and I didn’t know where it would go.
And while I’m still not sure where things will go with the site, I am excited to share with everyone that I’ve decided to take things to another level.
When I first started, I didn’t share Financial Slacker with anyone. In fact, for the first few months, I wrote articles that no one read because no one knew the site even existed.
But then slowly, I started sharing the site with more and more people.
At first, I only shared with people that I didn’t know in real life.
But now, I’m ready to start sharing Financial Slacker with a whole new audience. I’ve taken the leap and started inviting people who I’ve worked with, or went to school with, or people I know personally.
While this may be a big step forward, and I take that step with a little apprehension, I’m excited to begin sharing my little part of the internet.
Martin - Get FIRE'd asap says
I still prefer to stay semi anonymous but am sharing more and more about my own life and how my new found early retirement develops. As I’ve found out, retirement is not just a matter of stopping work and putting one’s feet up.
Since I’ve already become financially independent I can’t really talk about my own experience getting here, so much, although I’d like to think that I’ve got some good I’d advice to share. But I can certainly share what’s it’s like once you’ve reached the FI goal and make the decision to give up full-time work.
So I’m not ready to ‘come out’ fully to the world yet but happy to share from behind the relative anonymity of the interweb.View Comment

I completely understand, Martin.
For me, I plan to make the move slowly. I’m still a little uncomfortable, but I think it’s really only a matter of time.
In the long run, it’s hard to stay completely anonymous.View Comment
