Comments on: Got Goals? A Bright Future is Only Four Months Away http://www.justonemoreyear.com/got-goals-a-bright-future-is-only-four-months-away/ One couple's story of escaping 9 to 5 until 65 Wed, 20 Jul 2016 17:22:09 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.5.11 By: Young http://www.justonemoreyear.com/got-goals-a-bright-future-is-only-four-months-away/#comment-386 Fri, 13 Nov 2015 23:18:05 +0000 http://www.justonemoreyear.com/?p=939#comment-386 Even if a lot of money to be made, I wouldn’t even consider to write a blog, well, so I thought. I feel like starting a blog now, even if I don’t make a penny for the reasons I mentioned before. I believe that there are a lot of retired senior citizens craving for the type of blog like mine(if I go for it). I know exactly what people want to read about, that’s what precisely I want to write about too. It is hard for me to write, as an Asian/American, I’m still in a stage of learning English and my American husband doesn’t want to help. I’ll seriously think about it till next year. I already know that my blog will be very successful, If not, who cares I’m not in for money in the first place.

I do wonder sometimes where my energy went from my youth. I still feel energetic at times, but nothing like I was 20 years ago. 🙂

You’re right about not having any blogs written by older folks. They are probably out there, but I can’t think of one off hand. The only guy I can think of in his sixty’s blogging about personal finance is Jim Collins. He has had a huge influence on many of the 20 and 30 something FIRE bloggers.

Maybe this could be a great opportunity for you and your husband to write a blog?

I think that you will have a great retirement life. Speaking of blog, I couldn’t find one financial blog written by senior citizen, I was/am very disappointed about this. I even consider writing a blog myself, just like ones written by 20s~40s.

Hey, double pane windows were on our wish list 8 years ago when we lived in California. We finally saved enough money to get them done. It was well worth it.

Look forward to meeting you and Tim next month!

Once that’s done, we can better focus on retirement, paying off the mortgage faster, double pane windows. Ya know, the sexy stuff!

We’ll see how things go this next year though, since we’ll be going without Tim’s disability money. It won’t allow me to put anything close to the goal for our retirement accounts. Which we’re woefully behind on. But such is (our) life.
