The coolest blogs: Introducing 1500 Days to Freedom

Published July 9, 2016   Posted in Coolest Blogs

The 1500 Days to Freedom blog is my go-to blog when I’m in a strange mood and need something fun, clever and light-hearted to read. This is a blog that’s just downright unpretentious, written by a dude who knows how to have fun and keep it real.

Check out the blog:

For example, take a second to readΒ one of his latest posts about ping pong and pricing out a Mig-29 fighter jet. It’s no secret that I have a “thing” for fighter jets. I’d give away particularly important parts of my body for a ride in a modern fighter. Ah, having things in common…

He’s amassed over $1.3m in net worth, so he also knows how to both earn money and also, perhaps more importantly, retain it. He is transparent (as far as I can tell) about his financial situation and isn’t afraid to throw some numbers around.

Don’t expect purely financial and early retirement content from his blog. He writes about anything and everything (hence the piece about ping pong). He also has a natural ability to concoct new words (or find obscure ones!) on the fly. Preterpluparenthetical, anyone?

He also has a running 10 Questions feature for other bloggers, which helps spread the love to other financial web sites. I remember submitting my answers to the 1500 Days blog a couple years ago when I first started financial blogging. He published it and I got flooded with traffic for a couple days, kick-starting my blog a little bit and driving some visitor engagement.

Great karma, bro.

You owe it to yourself to check this blog out if you haven’t already. Just check your uptightness at the door, cause that stuff ain’t allowed when you make it a specific point to mention that you’ve never been to a Turkish prison. I hear they are pretty hard-core.

    Billy Madison: YES. You ain’t cool, unless you pee your pants.

    3rd Grader: Hey look, Ernie peed his pants too. Alright!

    Old Farm Lady: If peeing in your pants is cool, consider me Miles Davis.
