For several years, I kept a blog about our eating, reading, and writing adventures. Posts are still available at:
There are numerous blogs we follow on personal finance, lifestyle, travel, and food. Some sites are heavily visited and commercial/professional weblogs, and others are smaller and much more personal.
We look at this list and are struck by how eclectic it is. Perhaps it’s because we are very keen on financial independence and retiring early (FIRE), but not always at the expense of the occasional forays into living the good life, travel, and enjoying arte far niente (art of doing nothing), preferably in France or Italy.
No worries though. We have our eyes firmly on the prize of reaching FIRE before our countdown clock shows “0.” Then, we hope to share what we do with all our days AFTER we retire!
(There are other blogs which were helpful to us, but many of them have stopped posting new articles and thus no longer on our “active” list, including Early Retirement Extreme and Living a FI: A Geek’s Guide to Financial Independence.)
