Random Questions with Physician on FIRE

MSF Preamble

Physician on FIRE is fully recovered from his run in with Legosaurus Rex and is ready to take on the Random Questions Challenge.

I’ve discovered dozens, maybe even hundreds of bloggers since I started this blog. It’s been a great way to get to know the community. But I’ve been reading a handful of personal finance blogs long before I started blogging. I’ve come to look at these select few bloggers as the cool older brother bloggers.

It is a real honor to have one of those cool older brother bloggers featured in today’s Random Questions. I discovered Physician on FIRE sometime in 2016 after stalking the Rockstar Finance Net Worth Tracker.

His story was inspiring, but it was his creativity and writing style that won me over. Which I can only describe as the perfect combination of financial wisdom and witty repartee with just the right amount of 80’s & 90’s pop culture thrown into the mix. (It’s like we had the same childhood.)Continue reading →

Blogging Schedule, Random Housekeeping, & Behind the Scenes

My more dedicated readers may have noticed that there was not a blog post this past Sunday. I wanted to write a quick post to let you know that I’m going to make an adjustment to my blogging schedule for the month of August and maybe even into September. Rather than publishing twice a week (Sunday & Thursday), I’ll only be publishing once a week (Thursday).

Both my boys are playing soccer this year and the practices have already started. This will consume large portions of 3 days each week throughout August and September. We are also on the countdown to school starting (18 days). Plus I have 3 fantasy football drafts to prepare for. (I had a disappointing season last year, I need to bounce back.)

Since the next few weeks will be a little crazy, I don’t want my posts to suffer. So rather than write simply for the sake of sticking to my schedule, I’d rather put my time into fewer well thought out out posts.

What to Expect

Despite my slimmed down schedule, I’m excited for what’s on tap for this month. Next week I’ll have another edition of Continue reading →

MFS1 and MFS2 stop by The Lady in the Black’s Blog

First, my kids took over my blog. Now, they’ve hijacked The Lady in the Black’s Blog as well. They’re becoming internet sensations!

You might remember The Lady in the Black from my most recent edition of the New Kids on the Blog. She currently plays host to one of my favorite new series: Kids Talk. Where she interviews kids about money.

She recently asked my kids if they were interested in participating, and they jumped at the opportunity. Go check out their responses now and find out how my kids are going to earn money and how much money they’ll earn. Plus find out what a 6 & 8-year-old plan on buying with their money.
