Media Attention From The Financial Post!

This is another high point of Million Dollar Journey's blog life where we were interviewed and mentioned in the Financial/National Post.

Brad Frenette of the Financial Post interviewed me a couple months back, but I never heard word from him after that.  Then, last week, he asks to take pictures and finalize the interview.  I agreed, and here are some snippets of the article "Bloggers show off the books":

 …in the year 2014, Newfoundland's millionaire club will increase by one. That is, if all goes according to plan for FrugalTrader, the moniker of the 27-year-old engineer behind the personal finance blog Million Dollar Journey.

… the blog outlines his plan to become a millionaire by age 35 using a "combination of saving, investing and proper planning." FrugalTrader opens his ledger with detailed breakdowns of his assets and overall net worth…

The Financial Post also mentioned Million Dollar Journey in another article "Good advice or just online ranting?".  Here are the snippets:

 Million Dollar Journey on high-interest savings accounts:

…Professor Robinson: I like this one. Clearly written, accurate, informative, not over-selling an idea, just telling you what you need to know. You shouldn't take this as comprehensive advice, just as information on high interest rate accounts. He identifies the clear weakness in them — the average return is higher on other investments

…followed on to read a couple of his tax pieces. Exactly the same level. Accurate, covers the basics that will be all that most people need to know.  I conclude that this is one personal finance blog that is worthwhile for the average person..

This blog has come a long way from it's humble beginnings.  Thank you loyal readers for your continual support, it means a lot.

    FJ, LOL, lucky for you, the internet version doesn’t include a picture. If it did, I may scare away all my readers! ;)

    Congrats FT on educating readers on the world of personal finance.

    Even for someone with a little accounting background, I enjoy reading your blogs. Keep up the good hard work!

    Always an enjoyable read FT. Keep up the great work!

    I’d say that the mention in the Post, is worth many Golden Blog awards. Remember, greatness often goes unrecognized in one’s own sphere.

    Congratulations on being recognized outside the blog-sphere!

    Congrats! How old is MDJ?

    I don’t have a subscription so I can’t read the article, so if .. over time you could include other interesting snippets, that would be awesome!

    FT – do you know on what date the “Bloggers show off the books” article was published?

    I’ll check the library for it.
