It is hard to believe that my little experiment in sharing my financial knowledge with the world has evolved so much over the last two years. On October 7, 2008, I shared my first post with the world. I shared my story and why I picked the name for my site.
Rabbi Nachman Me’Uman wrote a beautiful, inspiring song. Kol Ha’OlamKulo, Gesher Tsar Me’od. The whole world is a very narrow bridge. Veha’ikar– veha’ikar lo lefached klal. The most important thing to remember is not to be afraid at all.
Since that day, I have written 498 other posts on a wide variety of personal and personal finance topics. I have had thousands of visitors, many amazing comments, built relationships with other bloggers, joined the Yakezie network, and expanded and built out my site.
It has gone from a small hobby to a small business. It has led me to explore and learn more about my own finances. It has let me become a teacher. It has helped me get into the news. It has led me to discover and connect with many other great bloggers. It has been a journey.
I am honored that each of you has been a part of this site. If you have been a quiet “lurker,” reading but not participating, I urge you to jump out and leave a comment to say hi. If you are a regular reader and like what you have learned, share with your friends on Facebook or Twitter.
While I do make a little money from the ads, the best payment I have ever received on this site is a complimentary comment or a thank you e-mail for advice I have shared. I love the writing, but would not be doing it if it were not for all of you.
Thank you to each of you for reading, commenting, questioning, and keeping the conversation going. I look forward to the next 500 posts and the opportunity to continue connecting with all of you. It is an honor and a privilege.
