About Kevin McKee
This is my personal blog, so I guess I should tell you a little bit about myself. I’m 28 years old and I will be married in May of 2014 to a woman I call Tag (at least that’s what she’s called on this website). I own a home and two dogs, and in my spare time I like to write about money. I also have a full time job in software development with a large company that pays the bills. I’m basically a 45 year old man trapped inside a 28 year old body.
Over the years I’ve become less interested in 401ks and market investing, while I’ve become more interested in spending time with my soon-to-be wife and enjoying the time I have left here on planet Earth. These interests are reflected in this blog, and you’ll basically see three different topics discussed on this site:
Thousandaire Covers 3 Topics
First, I write about personal finance. There are times when I write about budgeting or investing, but usually my posts are much more personal. I like to write about how Tag and I are trying to save money on our wedding. I also write about why we are spending $20,000 on the wedding, and anyone who thinks that’s dumb can take a hike. I don’t write much about finance; I do write quite a bit about personal finance.
Next, I write about life. I feel a close bond with my readers, and I like to share my life with them. That may mean talking about a new business I tried to start. It could also be talking about my mom getting cancer. One of the most important aspects of personal finance is to know when other things are more important.
Finally, I write about politics. I consider myself a constitutional conservative, or libertarian, and I believe talking about politics is terribly important if you want to have an honest conversation about personal finances. The single largest line item on my budget every year is “Taxes”, so I’m gonna keep talking about politics and money at the same time until that changes. Some people hate politics and get angry when people talk politics on a personal finance blog. Those people hated this post and this post and this post. If you are one of those people then you should probably find a new site to read, because there’s a lot more where that came from.
This is Entertaining Personal Finance
If you’re looking for dry, informative articles then you’re in the wrong place. If you’re looking for real personal stories about money, then you’ve come to the right place. I may not be the funniest guy in the world, but everything I write on this blog will be entertaining. It might make you laugh, or it might make you angry. It might give you motivation or it could bring you to tears. Like me or hate me, I promise not to be boring.
