Today, I had the privilege and honor of JD Roth over at Get Rich Slowly posting a review of my videos and my site. First of all, I have to send a big thank you to JD, the Godfather of personal finance blogging!
If you are a GRS reader and this is your first time here, or if you are just a newer reader who hasn’t read some older posts, I have put together some of my more popular and interesting posts. If you want to browse through the site, I recommend you start with a few of these.
I want to give fair warning; I tend to go on streaks. For example, in April, I was on a personal finance kick so almost everything I wrote as PF related. At the moment, I’m on an economics/political kick so I’m writing a lot about that. You may not be interested in all of it, but I hope you’re at least interested in some of it! The reason I post anything political is because politics do impact your personal finances. Every dollar you pay in taxes is a dollar you could have used to pay down debt or invest, which is why I believe politics are an important topic when dealing with personal finance.
Now, I want to start with my most educational, and in my opinion, 2nd best video (after Haven’t Made a Budget)
What is a Roth IRA
Obviously I focus on personal finance. My theory is that people don’t need dry information like “stop eating out and pay more towards your debt” because that’s been written about 7,389 times on other sites. I try to give my personal, slightly different perspective on personal finance.

- Lease Your Car and Fleece the Dealer – Why leasing a car makes a lot of sense in the right circumstances
- How to Invest When You’re Clueless – I was helping my girlfriend set up her Roth IRA, and we put her in some diversified ETFs
