That is the worst title ever in the history of blogging.
For me, creativity comes in waves. Sometimes, I’m overflowing with ideas. Other times, I come up empty. Sometimes, I can come up with 5 great post ideas in 5 minutes. Other times, I think all day and can’t come up with a decent title. I’m in a trough today, at least when it comes to clever titles.
Anyway, I thought that I’d fill you in on some of my other appearances around the web.
Adventures in Stock Picking (@ InvestmentZen)
I don’t discuss it very much, but I used to pick stocks. I still hold most of them. And, I’ve done really well. This year, I’m beating the S&P 500 by 10% in my stock trading account. The green line represents me:
In 2015, I beat the S&P 500 by 26%:

In case you missed it, the Mrs. and I interviewed the Mad Fientist for his own Financial Independence Podcast.
In the interview we discussed:
- the Fientist’s childhood
- how he acquired Fientist superpowers (nuclear accident)
- why someone would get an advanced degree from an Ivy League school right before retiring (the Mad Fientist isn’t really mad, but I think this is slightly insane)
- the joy of reading IRS documents
- boxers, briefs or unfurnished basement?
I’m in South Africa!
Not really. However, I am on a blog that is based in South Africa. My friend and TEDx speaker Angela, featured me in her Spotlight On series. In the interview, you’ll learn about why we downsized homes, but 40 months later, are still decluttering.
Less is powerful. Less is beautiful. Less is great. Less is more.
Except when it comes to blog titles.
