I’ve started websites in the past with the intention of growing them to sell to investors. Some have panned out, others have gone nowhere. This site is different.
I created these websites based on keyword trends with the goal of maximizing traffic and revenue. However, those sites all focused on topics that didn’t mean much to me. Finance is different. I’ve received so many questions from students, family, and friends that I wanted a place to serve as a resource for people like them looking for a way to take control of their financial future.
I have no intention of selling this site. I would love for this site to continue growing into a community of readers who can learn from my triumphs and failures as I battle for financial independence using both new and old financial wisdom.
This site started in late July 2017 with a few posts, but I look forward to increasing the priority of creating content for the site to build a place where visitors can stick around and read more than one post. Measuring progress is always difficult when making a site, so I’ll stick to the number of website visitors which is a useful metric for organic search engine traffic, and this finance blog ranking.
The ranking uses some content and site quality factors to determine a score. Because the site is so young and has no authority, I am at the very bottom of the list. However, there is only one direction to go: up. The badge shown is my current ranking and will change regularly so both you and I can track how the site is doing given this ranking.
