Final Post

Well, it's been fun gang, but I've come to the conclusion that this will be my final post for this blog.  Why you ask?  Well, I've achieved what I've wanted from this blog and learned a bunch along the way. Here is a brief list of just some of the things I've taken away from running this blog:

1.) Allowed me to better understand a multitude of financial related topics: you know the old saying that if you really want to better understand something, you should teach it to someone else?  That's what exactly happened here with, and I was able to force myself to learn much more in order to better portray this information to my readers.

2.) This post marks 1 year of post.  If my count is correct, than this post is number 156 which would provide for 3 posts a week for one year.  My 1 year goal was more to see if I could have the discipline to do something of this nature for that long.  I have to admit that some posts were better than others, but the important thing to realize is that I did achieve my initial goal.

3.) Running a blog is hard!  Let no one make you think otherwise that it's easy keeping up with a blog.  It is a very intellectually taxing endeavor.

4.) I'm now distracted.  With the onset of my first born children, I no longer feel as motivated to keep up with this blog, and know for certain I will have no time when they come along.

Overall, it's been a great run, and I thank you for reading!  Good luck with your own Illusions!

Last Wonderful Moment of the Day: Getting the chance to write for you.


  1. I completely understand your decision, my first child came along earlier this year and I have completely neglected my blog. I did think maybe starting a new blog would give me the incentive I needed to get posting again, yet its been left alone with only a welcome post sitting there, I haven't even changed half of the sub titles.

    Anyway, I've enjoyed reading your blog 3x a week, it's difficult posting that much, but you've kept it fresh.

    Well done!!!

    Hope you enjoy being a father as much as I do.
