Freedom 35 Blog’s Growing influence
It’s been a few years since the last post featuring mean comments. I hope this time people will be nicer. 😳
Most of my regular visitors have positive and encouraging discussions in the comment sections on the blog. Thanks guys! 😀 But of course it’s also important to hear opposing views to understand personal finance through different life experiences. I’m not sure if you guys know this, but I’ve been told that my articles can rub some people the wrong way. I know – this was surprising for me to hear too.
Over the last few years this blog has been mentioned on different websites and internet forums, often met with some interesting feedback. I’ve gathered some of those comments today to share with my regular readers so we can look at some fresh perspectives, and perhaps learn something new. 😀
Below are comments written by random people online after they have read my blog posts.
Apparently there’s a lot of people who think my writing is stupid. Well, I just have one thing I’d like to say in response to all those people.
I just want them to know that I’m very grateful for their constructive criticism. 🙂 One person even compared my writing to the professionals at CNN. Golly. 😀 Maybe I should work as a financial columnist for a large news organization. I think I can help a lot of people who are struggling with money.
I want to know the best way to become wealthy and reach my freedom 35 goal. This means listening to different people’s ideas, so I can become smarter and make changes to improve my existing financial plan. 🙂
Based on the comments above, it’s clear that many people believe paying down debt should be a high priority. This is an unusual idea to me because I think having debt is okay. I currently only have $426,000 of debt so it’s not even that much. I have spent a lot of money over the last few years buying marijuana stocks, trading Bitcoin, and giving loans to private companies. I was recently thinking about buying a new Tesla to replace my old car. But maybe the anonymous internet folks have a valid point. Perhaps I should focus more on debt repayment instead of purchasing new assets.
Paying off my line of credit sooner would lower my monthly interest payments, so that’s good. But I would also have to delay my spending and investing plans, which is bad. I will have to reflect deeply on this and announce my decision later.
Thanks for reading. 🙂
