Today is Friday the 13th, well, that's just how it worked out and I didn't realize what day it was until much later... and because I'm not very superstitious, and life is too short, I launched the blog anyway.
What do I want to accomplish with this blog? The blog seeks to help as many people as possible, plan for their retirement thoughtfully. I know way too many people, and at one point, including yours truly, that save for retirement aimlessly. I'll go into what I call "aimless investing" in a later post. So the goal of this blog is to help my fellow Americans plan, save, and invest wisely for retirement. My aim is to keep things simple and to the point, give you what you need to be successful and hopefully save you from making costly financial mistakes :-)
Why start this blog?
Well, multiple reasons, but mostly because I came across some damming graphs that made me gasp and as you can see from below images, as a country we are not doing well with retirement savings. So, the idea is simple: provide the people the tools to save, invest and live a fulfilling life. That's it.
How can this happen in the richest country in the world?
We need more TSP millionaires....
Let's fix this together, help me spread the word. Share this blog with your friends and family. OMG! Retirement Blog
Yet Another blog?
I realize that there are tons of financial blogs out there and I know you don't need another one. Tough. You got one anyway. The difference between OMG! Retirement and other blogs is:
- We don't sell you anything.
- We don't sell your data to anyone.
- We don't track what you do on the site.
- We don't even care if you subscribe to the site, it's only there to alert you when there is a new post.
- Basically, we lose money by hosting this site.. lol.. its true though. The only reason we do this is because we love people and care about what happens to you and your money.
Please note: I'm not a financial advisor or a stock analyst. This blog is not associated with any entity, government or private, my desire to share what I know to help others plan for retirement. I'm still working on this site so you might notice things changing and being moved around, but you can subscribe in the meantime if you'd like to stay up to date and receive emails when the new content is published!
