NEW: My guest appearances page!

I recently created a page to share my guest appearances: My Guest Appearances. Go check it out to learn a little more about me, and find some new content creators to follow!

My recent guest appearances

In addition to featuring links on my guest appearances page, I also try to write a short post or write-up about each guest appearance. I just think it’s nice to introduce my hosts and give them a little bit of extra exposure on my blog. 🙂

With that, here are some of my recent interviews with other content creators:

The Alain Guillot Podcast

I’ve been following Alain for quite some time, and have always admired his interviewing skills. (His time with Toastmasters has served him well!) He has a star-studded list of past podcast guests, so I was honoured when he asked me to do an interview with him.

In my interview, we discuss:

  • My parents’ money habits, as immigrants from Hong Kong.
  • How their influence shaped my own money habits.
  • How my interest in personal finance and investing began.
  • Why I decided to start a blog.
  • … and more!

Thanks again to Alain for having me on his show!

Personal Finance Blogs: Know Your Blogger Series

personal finance blogs

Call me crazy, but I can never get enough personal finance and FIRE content! That’s why I’m on the mailing list for several personal finance content aggregators. One of my favourites is Personal Finance Blogs.

In March, I was thrilled to be featured in their Know Your Blogger Series. In the interview, I answer some questions which I’ve never covered here, including:

  • For someone looking to improve their financial situation, what’s your best advice?
  • In your opinion, what’s better? Focusing on increasing your income, or focusing on decreasing your expenses?
  • Why do you believe learning about money and caring about personal finance is important?

It was fun sharing my thoughts on these interesting questions. Check out my interview for the answers to these questions and more. And don’t forget to read the other interviews in the series!

About Personal Finance Blogs

Personal Finance Blogs was started by Erik from The Mastermind Within, Kevin from Financial Panther, and Liz from Rose Colored Water in July 2019. 

They decided to start PFB because they were unhappy about the decline (and eventual demise) of Rockstar Finance. From that, their new aggregation site was born, and I’ve been enjoying daily fresh personal finance content since.

If you’re like me, and crave more personal finance content, join their mailing list today! Also, if you’re a personal finance content creator, feel free to submit your content to be featured in their daily emails.

What I Don't Know interview

what i dont know

Jonathon Joseph, who started the What I Don’t Know blog, contacted me in March to do an interview on his blog. Unfortunately, I was completely swamped with trip cancellations and COVID madness at the time.

So (terrible blogger that I am) I wasn’t able to reply to his interview questions until April! Thankfully, Jonathon was very understanding, and took it all in stride. I had a great time going more in-depth with my blogging journey.

Jonathon asked some excellent, thought-provoking questions, including:

  • Was it a good idea to stockpile blog posts before I launched?
  • How did I get around the technological challenges of blogging?
  • How long did it take for traffic to start flowing?
  • Which social media platforms worked best for me in the beginning?
  • Did something propel my blog forward, or was it a slow build-up?
  • What’s one piece of advice I’d give to new bloggers?

I hope you’ll enjoy this deep dive into my blog progress (and process)!

About What I Don’t Know

Jonathon started What I Don’t Know in March of this year. In that short time, he’s written a number of informative articles about his own blogging journey and what he’s learned.

In addition, Jonathon also features interviews with a handful of other bloggers about their blogging journeys. After reading these interviews, I’ve learned a lot, and feel extra-motivated to keep blogging.

What I Don’t Know is still a very new blog, so please check out Jonathon’s content and show him some love!

Thank you

A huge thanks to Alain, Erik, Kevin, Liz and Jonathon for giving me the opportunity to share some of my story with their audience. Please be sure to check out some of their other content while you’re on their sites, and leave a comment if you can!

    Also working my way through your site. Such a treat to read this post. I remember vaguely Rockstar Personal Finance as they published at some point the networth of many of the FIRE bloggers at some point. Did not know their site was no longer active. Wow, this is really the place to come to catch up on FIRE bloggers. I was so addicted to FIRE bloggers too several years ago! It’s like financial voyeurism for sure!

      Hi Dr. Plastic Picker—it was odd and sudden the way that Rockstar folded. I still don’t understand what happened! It’s like the new owner purchased it just to let it die. Such a shame.
