My First Year as a Personal Finance Blogger

My blog just celebrated its first birthday.  The Financial Journeyman was launched on April 8, 2017.  Time sure does go by quickly when you are having fun and interacting with great people. When I launched this blog, I had very low expectations.  My expectations were low because I never created a blog before.  After I decided to create this blog, I did some research on how other blogs performed during their first year. Many of the general posts […]

Blog Report: Fourth Quarter 2017

Hello and thank you for taking the time to read how The Financial Journeyman has performed during the fourth quarter of 2017.  It has been exciting creating and developing this blog.  This is the first time that I have ever created a blog.  There have been some ups and downs, but it has been mostly a positive learning experience. My journey toward financial independence started a long time ago in 1997.  Over the course of […]

2017: Year in Review

2017 is in the books.  2017 was a year to remember.  It was full of surprises.  You never know what is around the corner.  At the start of 2017, creating a blog was not on my list of things to do.  The Financial Journeyman blog is now almost 9 months old.  That is just the result of being present and taking advantage of what life has to offer.  I have even greater expectations for 2018.  Below are […]

New York Personal Finance Meet Up

I did not have the opportunity to attend Fincon 2017.  This blog was newly created in April and in all honesty, FinCon was not even on my radar of things to do this year.  After reading the many blog posts about FinCon 2017, I am defiantly going to attend next year’s event in Orlando, Florida.  I was, however, able to attend the New York Personal Finance Meet Up (#NYPFMeetUp). The New York Personal Finance Meet […]

Six Month Blog Review

Thank you for taking the time to read about my first 6-months as a personal finance blogger.  I have read that reaching the 6-month point is a major milestone because it is when many bloggers call it quits.  The past 6-months have gone by in a flash.  Creating The Financial Journeyman has been an educational experience.  Other than being a learning experience, it was fun to try to be creative and to watch the blog develop. What I have […]

Blogger Recognition Award

I would like to start by thanking A Journey to FI for nominating me for the Blogger Recognition Award.  The Financial Journeyman is only six months old and this recognition is a big deal to me.  There are many personal finance blogs.  It is easy to get lost in the crowd.  It is an honor to be mentioned among some of the best bloggers in the personal finance space who were also nominated for this award. The Blogger […]
