Re: Any Park Members?

It's nice to see a few old Park members here. It really was an incredable place in it's time. With all of the modern communications available I'm not sure a chat room would survive now although it's not without it's own charms. With the modern technology you only communicate with people you already know, for the most part. With the chat rooms, you had the oppertunity to meet and get to know all kinds of new people from around the world. You made many new friends, or aquaintences. It was a place I know that I was always anxious to go. While most people might have spent their friday nights out on the town I always found it more pleasurable to sit down in front of my computer and visit with all my online friends. That may sound a little weird, but the chatroom held it's own magic, it's own fun. Those of you that had this experience will understand where I'm coming from. For those of you that didn't. I'm sorry. You missed a fantastic adventure or experience.

I hope to see more of the people I remember on here. I chatted mostly in the 40 something room, thus my age at the time.
Best wishes to all. :)

I was a member! I frequented the room "Outdoor Park" and my nickname was Cat. My sisters went as Blue Sky and Sil.

Some of the people I remember chatting with were Don Quixote, Teddy Bear, Herrill, No One Special, Sullen.... it was so long ago so I'm drawing a blank on several others.

Anyone remember this room???

Re: FiClub: bringing awareness to personal finance

Hi Frank!

After I posted my reply, I thought about it on and off throughout the day and figured you probably don't delve into macroeconomics, because it seems that FiClub.org focuses on practical everyday personal finances. I think there is a great need for your club and I wish you great success with it.  I look forward to checking in every so often and reading the conversations that are taking place.

Cheers!

Brent

Brent,

Thank you for the encouragement! I do not intend to cover macroeconomic sorts of topics directly and I believe that the specialist audiences with an interest in the topics are already served by entities like Dow Jones or Bloomberg with massive resources to gather and analyze large set of data and with access to financial journalists, economists and government officials to be able to interview on the topics and chase the breaking headlines as they come across the ticker. That is not FiClub.org

It does not, in my opinion, serve our target audience of "regular people" to be distracted by complex, fast moving macro events beyond our control. and honestly, beyond the comprehension of most of the experts until after the events play out. We want to keep our worm's eye view on the micro decisions of individuals - your day to day spending and saving decisions. The actionable and the psychological and self-trust hurddles to taking those beneficial actions. For the macro topics, I'm happy to present the consensus view with a grain of salt. That grain of salt not being "but we know better", rather the grain of salt is "this may not matter to you personally, even if it comes to pass that way or a different way". In my own life, worrying about the economy when I am at the grocery store does not help me stick to my healthy eating plans and budget.

I love reading tidbits of the macro events personally but if I delve into that too much in the blog and recommendations, feel free to call me out for not being true to my word of writing something to help the reader vs. entertain myself. In tomorrow's post about debts, we do make quick mention that interest rates may go up, and so paying off debt sooner than later may be wise for those who can.

Cheers & Happy Easter to those who celebrate it!

-Frank

Hi Frank,

This is a great idea and I'm so glad to hear you're still growing the project.

Do you have any plans to cover macroeconomic issues such as things like the currency wars taking place, the dollar's reserve status and other currencies that may be coming down the pike, etc.?
