I am very happy to see that my blog project is working and that I continue to write and stay here writing down my opinions and interacting with you.
The Frugal Simple Blog project started in December 2015 inspired by many blogs, based on the need to communicate true and quality information to help readers have a secure source of information and a fair place and without a fixed editorial and no strings to be able to Take your doubts and also discuss the posts.
Time goes by so fast for all of us. When I started the blog I was full of doubts if I could generate interesting and non-appealing content that could hold people’s attention and that they could read an entire post until the end, some more educational as if they were a lesson, some more My opinion and thoughts about behavior, lifestyle, consumption and analysis of financial markets in Brazil and abroad.
Fortunately, this type of content is always renewing itself because doubts and the growth of people are things that come every minute, like the waves of the sea, and arrive new people with the same doubts and thirst to learn, that is the part good.
I put here the assets that I buy, my portfolio and I try to explain my way of investing, I also ask for guidance and help from other bloggers and so everyone grows. It is also good to discuss the mistakes and shows that the life of investor and citizen who uses conscious consumption in this crazy and wasteful world is not easy.
The project has grown, I created a blog in English, frugalsimple.net where almost a third of the visits are already from abroad, and I have this one in Portuguese to protect the readers who can not read yet in English, but it is already a beautiful exercise you Open the two pages side by side on the PC and already have a free English class reading a whole post. If you have access to the internet and do not know English you can learn and improve your life, expand your sources of knowledge and be able to feel more secure over the years.
The blog serves as a living record of our personal history and way of thinking. There are things I write down here, then I forget and I reread it. Imagine how crazy I get back in 10 years and read all those posts, how much I’ll look back and think “our looks like I was there in the year 2016, 2017, 2018 and beyond.
Another good thing is also the friendships with the blogosphere people, although maybe we never meet in person, it’s nice to know the history of each one and see their mishaps and rejoice in their personal achievements. I could quote here some but I would forget about others so to not be unfair I will not quote anyone, but all the blogs that I like and I follow are in my blogroll. And if you have doubts if you should have a blog, do not think twice, it encourages you to learn a lot and share knowledge, you just have to win.
Although less than 1% of the people that pass here comment, I try to answer all the comments, and if I do not answer ask again or call my attention. I’ve also given a few e-mail addresses. Feel free to email or add me on Google + just use it for this blog.
It is still notorious how much the staff was interested in investing abroad and learning to invest outside. The thing that Brazilian banks or securities brokers in Brazil DO NOT give you access. And Brazil has very little content in Portuguese for this, each one that talks a little about it helps a lot.
Certainly, we have to have some capital out there to protect us from the contingencies of life, especially for those who think of emigrating one day or who wants to give a reinforcement and retirement mattress in hard currency.
I have been offered partnerships for blog posts or advertisements of certain things but denied all, mainly because they had nothing to do with the freest editorial and independent of the blog and because I would not indicate anything to you that even I would not use. I just put Adsense as a way to pay frugalsimple.net blog hosting but that’s bullshit because besides not giving even 5 cents a day, I would never pay even the time I invest here to post to you.
I hope that in 2017 I will continue to find some cool things to post and indicate more good and safe sources for all the readers who come here, and also give a variety in Finance indicating also some books, movies and more cultural things of good quality and that add up Forces.
Big hug to all.
