Calling all blog and website authors

Post by Alex Frakt » Sat Oct 27, 2007 10:47 am

I'd like to encourage all of our members who are authors of blogs or websites on any topic to post something about their work on this thread, including links. These do not have to be related to finance or economics; whatever you are working on, we'd like to know about it. Please note, to keep this thread manageable and to prevent abuse, moderators may delete comments by non-authors and inactive members.

This post is intended to be a companion to this Reference Library post of investing and personal finance blogs by members. You may also post to that thread if you believe you meet the posted criteria, but please note the forum Librarians have final say over inclusion to that list.

Also see Calling all book authors.

I guess I'll start this off. (Thanks to Alex for the opportunity)

My first website is a Monte Carlo based retirement planner that I modeled loosely on Guyton's "decision rule" based withdrawal approach.

http://www.flexibleRetirementPlanner.com

The planner can be used on the web or downloaded and used offline. It's free for individual non-commercial use, but financial planners have to purchase a license to use the tool professionally.

(Updated to reflect that the site now requires a license when used by financial planners and for commercial purposes)

I accept your invitation. :) Here's my website:

Bob's Financial Website

Catchy name, eh? :wink: I started the website to write articles on what I've learned about investing. And boy is there a lot to learn! My latest focus is learning more about investing during retirement and how to improve safe withdrawal rates.

Magellan, that Cyclist Nexus site looks awesome. I've bookmarked it and intend to make use of it and explore when I get some time.

I have a personal blog at http://www.hiwiller.com. It's not really directed at anyone. I'm a game designer, and it seems that a lot of game designers keep blogs and make note of interesting things they see in the industry and elsewhere so I thought I'd hit the bandwagon running and have one of my own. I'm unsure anyone here would find it interesting at all, unless you are into games. I mostly use it to keep practicing writing.

Great topic, Alex. I like reading blogs from regular people.

Our website link:

http://www.lookoutwallst.com

K & K Enterprises, LLC is the name of our website. My daughter Katie and I created the educational stock market board game, "Look Out Wall Street!", which Mr. Bogle was so kind to endorse as, "A fun game that teaches valuable lessons about investing."

The website is not only a place to find out about our game, but also a resource center with many links to informative investing websites in the Education section including those of Mr. Bogle, Jason Zweig, pkcrafter, and Barry Barnitz. A recommended reading list of several Boglehead authors is also included in the education section.

Bogleheads may also enjoy visiting our photo gallery with photos from the second, third, fourth, and fifth Bogehead Reunions picturing many authors whose names you have become familiar with including:

Mr. John (Jack) C. Bogle, Taylor Larimore, Mel Lindauer, Michael LeBoeuf, Dr. Bill Bernstein, Professor Ed Tower, Rick Ferri, Sue Stevens, Laura Dogu, Bill Schultheis. and Larry Swedroe.

http://www.lookoutwallst.com/aboutus%20 ... tm#gallery

Our game is the only stock market game that incorporates Mr. Bogle's investing philosophy of investing with index funds. It also incorporates in a fun way information about : 529 College Savings Plans, asset allocation, portfolio construction, stocks, bonds, investments, interest, diversification, price-to-earnings ratio, cost-expense ratio, math, and stock market bubbles of the past.

Look Out Wall Street is listed in the Jumpstart Coalition's Clearinghouse of educational materials, but the coalition does NOT endorse the game. ("Jumpstart is a national coalition of organizations dedicated to improving the financial literacy of kindergarten through college-age youth by providing advocacy, research, standards and educational resources. Jumpstart strives to prepare youth for life-long successful financial decision-making.")

Our game is also for sale at the gift shop at the Museum of American Finance on Wall Street: http://www.moaf.org/shop/products/S-10355

Thank you Alex for giving us the opportunity to post about our website. I hope readers will find it informative.

The Lowest Rated Blog

Post by cfs » Tue Oct 30, 2007 5:49 pm

I am guilty as charged. I am responsible for The Lowest Rated Blog - my blog is all about political satire and war talk [it is of no use to Bogleheads]. I use a sardonic style because life is too short; but from time to time you will see a serious post. Here is the link:

Blog

Post by pkcrafter » Wed Oct 31, 2007 11:52 am

Alex, thanks for the invitation.

My blog is Investing Essentials

http://investingessentials.blogspot.com/

This online "book" is intended to be a short introduction to the fundamentals of Bogleheads/Diehards investing. Additional reading of one of the Bogleheads recommended books is suggested.

This Investment Guide was accomplished with much-appreciated help from Bogleheads/Diehards Mel, Taylor, Bob 90245, Barefootjan, TimDex and most recently, coachz.

The site has averaged about 1600 readers/month since it's inception in 2004. I will be updating it in the near future.

AA-Mosaic Portfolio

Post by LHerr » Sat May 17, 2008 8:10 am

Alex,

I recently learned about this Bogleheads site and I found your post regarding Bogle types writing their own blogs. You will find my rather new blog at this site. I see I cannot post links to my blog. However, you can find it if you Google Lowell Herr.


Since the day after Christmas (12/26/2007), I've been walking beginning investors through the process of building a portfolio around the philosophy of asset allocation. The latest performance update of this portfolio is available on my blog. The portfolio is an infant so one should not get all that excited about the IRR results.


I define a mosaic portfolio to be one that uses all types of investments. In the case of the AA-Mosaic Portfolio, I am only using stocks and ETFs. One could easily add bonds, index mutual funds, etc. The majority of the investments are Vanguard ETFs. I think this qualifies me as a Boglehead.

The philosophy for this investing approach is based on academic research as I understand it. Authors I use to support my conclusions are Brinson, Beebower, Hood, Singer, Surz, Bernstein, Gibson, Ibbotson, Ferri, Swensen, Swedroe, Evensky, Sharpe, Hebner, Fama, French, Bogle, Malkiel, etc.

I hope a few readers will enjoy my photographs as well as my writing.

Lowell Herr

Hi Alex,

My site is easyallocator.com, an asset allocation tool known to many Diehards. I've been flattered by the press it's received, many user kudos, and the influence it's had on other such sites since I created it in 2005.

It's something I update in my spare time, which seems to be less and less these days...

Remove comma from link

Post by LHerr » Sat May 17, 2008 1:41 pm

Readers wanting to click on the "easyallocator" link need to remove the comma at the end of the link. Then it will work. Fine site, BTW.

Wow! I just tried the "easyallocator" tool and actually ended up less than 2-3% points away from the 'per fund' asset allocation I developed with Laura's (et al) help last year.

Brilliant!

www.flexibleRetirementPlanner.com

This project was purely for fun. I used to run a software development organization in my pre-retirement life, and this project gave me a chance to get back into coding after 15+ years in management. My ego gets fed a bit from the monthly traffic reports and from the occasional emails I get from users. Plus it was interesting to experiment with the Google advertising model and search engine optimization to learn more about that world.

I have Google ads on the site but they're mostly to cover hosting and advertising costs. For those interested, the site receives about 50-100 visitors per day and the ads bring in around $25-40 per month. From what I can tell, the site has an unusually high click-rate compared to other AdSense sites and it might be attributed to a loyal user base (I think there are several financial planners who regularly use the site). I use most of the ad money on hosting and Google Adwords advertising to raise awareness about the site.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A second site I'm involved with is called CyclistNexus.com and it's a tool to help cyclists coordinate their cycling activities including mapping routes, coordinating rides, and tracking personal performance info.

This site is owned by a start-up business that I'm a partner in. This business is for-profit, although that goal is a long way off since the site was only recently launched and has lots of work to do to build membership. This adventure has also provided a ton of learning and plenty of opportunity to do things I've never done.

Jim
Jim, Love the site. Thanks for the link. I emailed it off to a friend of mine and put it on my favorites.

I have a website about my noncancerous prostate enlargement (BPH). To access it, type "ljblgb", then a dot followed by "com"

I wish I could post the site address as a link but because this is my first post, I am not allowed to do this until I have posted 3 more times.

Many visitors have informed me that they found the site valuable.

Following the lead of many other bogleheads, I created a website -- www.prospercuity.com -- to host my own retirement calculator and Monte Carlo simulator, which I named TIP$TER, for "Testing Investment Portfolio Strategies Toward Early Retirement."

It's free. Perhaps the most distinguishing feature of TIP$TER is that it compares the projected risks and rewards (based on the user's inputs) of a diversified portfolio -- in terms of the retirement expenditures that the portfolio is likely to sustain -- with those of a portfolio fully invested in TIPS.

Full disclosure: Although I hope to benefit from the website by using it as an advertising medium for my IP law practice, my main motives in developing the site were (1) for the fun of it and (2) to provide a free tool to help people inform their asset allocation decisions.

On my blog (The Incidental Economist) I am currently running an eight-post series on investment planning for which I am soliciting feedback. I intend to turn the content into wiki material.

Other than personal finance, I also blog on topics in economics, health care (I'm a health economist by profession), and other musings.

Since Geocities is stopping their free web site hosting this Fall, I just redid my web site.

If you are into wordworking, you might enjoy seeing many of the projects I have built over the years. Recently I have been making small mechanical marvels, whirligigs, and locks made entirely of wood.

The 1856 railroad switch lock is pretty cool.....as well as the segmented padlock.

Non-Markowitz Portfolio Optimizer

Post by macclary » Thu Jul 23, 2009 3:24 am

Hi everyone I am long time lurker here, and decided to register to reply to this useful thread. I have a web based portfolio allocation optimizer. It generally outperforms mean-variance type optimizers in terms of controlling future risk in the trials I have run.

www riskcog com

It would be great to get feedback on this tool. Can anyone comment on if it would be kosher to start a thread about a personal project like this?

Give it a try if this sounds interesting to you, it runs in your browser and doesn't require registration or anything.

sunfish sailing

Post by tat2ng » Thu Jul 23, 2009 7:48 am

I just recently started a blog to keep track of sailing days and eventually the repairs and upkeep necessary for my 2 sailboats - a late 1960's Sunfish and a late 1960's Super Porpoise (a Sunfish knock-off, or clone). What I've posted so far is stories from the last few years - I hope to catch up to current in the next few weeks.

I've sailed my Sunfish twice this summer - both times were fantastic. The 2nd time was quite windy, and I think I probably sailed the fastest I have ever experienced.

The blog can be found at:

I have a personal finance, investment, and stock market weblog that I use as an outlet for my ideas, opinions, and rants. As an amateur individual investor, I don't feel as though I'm qualified to dole out specific advice and usually refer any in-depth questions here, where I got my start about ten years ago.

However, I write about everything "I" do financially so perhaps newbie investors can learn by example while also being entertained.

I've posted most of the images that I've taken through various telescopes ranging from a 4.3" refractor to a 16" Newtonian using specialized CCD cameras. Each of the images includes information about the object imaged as well as details on how the image was captured and processed.

I have a blog that I created during a less busy period before I retired and started working for the king of all taskmasters. I plan on picking it up again this year when I really do retire for good. I had posted a few short stories and articles there, all linked to a writers website site that no longer exists as of December 2014. I just re-posted one article, one short story, and left a poem untouched that I had previously posted. I also belong to a local professional writer's club. My pen name is David Elder and I've written over 80 short stories, an untold number of articles, and am halfway through a novel. If you Google my pen name you will likely find nothing since my work was all linked to Google on the defunct website. A few of my stories and poems have been published and one short story was considered by Paramount. Many of my stories are dark, but some are more mainstream. A few of my children's poems have been published as well.

http://davidelderwriter.blogspot.com

When I get the time I'll post a few more complete articles or short stories on the blog since the links to the writer's website no longer function. If anyone is interested in fiction, PM me and I'll send you a story if I have one that appeals to your interests.

For some unknown reason my links never work on the Bogleheads website, no matter what I try. Maybe an admin can fix the link.

This is because, with the passage of time, both bob90245's and yobria's sites have gone defunct.
:(
I'm not happy about this. :(
If I was in charge, I would deactivate the links, but leave the posts somehow in memory of two great people...

I have edited the links in bob90245's and yobria's posts to point to the last valid snapshot of their sites on the Internet Archive.

Bumping this thread since there hasn't been any activity since 2015. I recently started writing about my life goals (including wealth, health and family goals ) and how I am going about achieving them.

https://earlyretirement790.wordpress.com/

Some highlights until now
- Early retirement
- Where I plan to be in my life at the end of each year for the next 5 years
- Why I am planning to move back to India after working in the US for close to 6 years ( family >> career )
- My experience on a low-carb (keto-style) diet
- Random experiences and chance encounters that taught me some lessons
- Book reviews
- Useful youtube videos and channels that I consume ( mainly related to investing )

The point of this blog is to make sure I capture all my life lessons in one place so that I can pass it on to future generations or anyone else who will learn something from it.

I am a software guy and I have a personal website with blogs about our travels in a 5th wheel camper, our Gold Wing motorcycle, tweaks and modifications to the RVs we have owned, my genealogy and photography.

I have a lot of fun with it.
