Two years ago (NYE 2016), I decided I would start an anonymous investment blog. I registered the domain (OfDollarsAndData.com) and opened this Twitter account.
I decided I would post once a week. Rain or shine. This was one of the most important decisions I ever made for the blog:
Stick to a schedule.
I can’t tell you how demoralizing this was, especially given how excited I was to start this project.
I guess it was. It was my first lesson:
You will be mostly alone on your journey.
The most optimistic was <52 (I’m at post 105 now)
In April 2017, I put out my 17th post called “Just Keep Buying.” This became my most popular post at the time.
“Read a lot, but not about investing.”
- Stick to a schedule
- Most won’t believe in you, but some will
- Don’t give up even when things seem darkest (the recovery is usually around the corner)
-Do what you are good at (the recognition will MAKE YOU love it)
If you ever wanted to change something in your life, let 2019 be your year. New Year's Resolutions can work.
Also, props to FinTwit. Best Twitter community on Earth. Wouldn’t be here without you all.
As always, thank you for reading!
