Comments Open

I initially started the blog without an audience. Not that I particularly wanted one. I was just writing to record my own thoughts. I was embarking on a multi-year financial plan and I wanted a record to see how my plans, motivations and thoughts would evolve through the process. And so the only occasional comment I received was spam.

But now, having stuck with my plan for a few years, some people actually started reading my stuff. And I’ve received requests over the past few months to open up the comments section so here we go. It’s just using the standard word-press comment feature so I’m not exactly sure how well it will all work. If you’re on the homepage, you have to click on the title of the post in order to see the comments.

I’ve also made the archives easier to read. If you click on a month and year to the right you’ll get all the posts for that month/year. Whereas before you would only see one post and have to keep clicking “next” to see if there were other posts that month.

    Just wanted to say I enjoy reading…and that you’ve basically created the dream I had years ago – spend my time rehabbing/fixing up homes to rent out or sell. I just never figured out how to make a living at it since I have/had too many obligations.

    I’m so glad you did this! Anyways, I think the normal WordPress comment system is fine for your current theme.

    Thanks Mike! I am also a follower/fan from ERE – and am supporting my lifestyle from rehabbing a property. I have appreciated your keen insight into life and the pursuit of freedom. Enjoy your summer! Best, JaneSF
