These days, very often, when readers ask me questions, I would direct them to my blog's "Search" function found at the top of the blog. What? You didn't know there is one?
Alamak, you must be reading my blog using your mobile phone all the time. The mobile friendly version of my blog shows the latest 5 blog posts and that's about it.
Apart from the "Search" function, the full web version of my blog also has plenty of useful links in the left and right side bars. There are links to recommended blog posts, the latest news and comments, for examples.
Having said this, I would like to share an inspirational email from a new reader who made good use of the full web version of my blog over a short period of two months:
|Questions? Use the "Search" function in my blog.|
Every day, I'll share an article you have written with my husband. I have also read a few other bloggers and think of something which will work for us. I'm proud of myself that I learnt something new and not eroding away my husband's money =p

A warm welcome to my blog. :)
These days, I have many more emails from readers and to read one like yours always brightens up my day. I am happy that talking to myself has helped anyone who would care to eavesdrop. LOL. ;p
As for what you plan to do, I feel that having adequate insurance and, then, having an adequate emergency fund should come first. These are the safety nets. Even if we were to pluck low hanging fruits, having some kind of cushion in case we should trip and fall is a good idea. ;)
I am really glad that you are helping the elders in your family plan for a more secure retirement and to have healthier cash flow in the present as well, all without sacrificing any necessary insurance coverage. :)
How do I find the time to blog and engage readers? The honest truth? I don't really have a social life, I guess. A close friend told me this quite bluntly before. As I retire from active employment, I have more time on my hands and I am making an effort to spend more time with friends and family. Of course, I appreciate having more "me" time. ;)
Anyway, I hope to share your email in my blog because it shows what anyone who is willing to make an effort can do to improve their financial well-being and to ensure financial security for themselves and their families in future. I will leave out your name in such an instance. Your story will inspire many more to take affirmative action. :)
