I began this blog a whole 3 weeks ago with the goal of filling a niche of personal finance. Whereas there is much focus on getting out of debt (in N easy steps) or becoming rich (preferably quick), there is less focus on quitting the rat race, adapting to simpler lifestyles, and letting your money work for you. Since there are a few of us out here for whom the latter makes eminent sense, I will continue writing on alternative ways of thinking about money, how to “produce” a solution rather than “consume” it (i.e. buy it), and various tips and tricks that save money and time.
Hopefully, I will finish setting up this new site soon so we can get back to the regular schedule.
