The View from Elsewhere


My blog post "Waiting for the Test to be Over" was picked up by Karen Datko, a correspondent at MSN's Smart Spending, and then designated as an "Editor's Pick."

Not only did this boost my Sitemeter numbers skyhigh, but it also resulted in a number of comments about my view of the economy and whether or not I should be worried about my retirement. At least one of the comments was more than a little strange, and another one misread me to say that I was saving $12,000 a month--to which I can only say "I WISH!"

At any rate, you can check out the responses here.

Do you remember the time when you didn't see your portfolio but once a year? Usually you saw an increase. Now we have access to our accounts daily and can feel the ups and downs. You received some interesting comments and I would be mentioned in this too, :) but I'm sticking to my advice. You are way a head of a lot of people who have put 0 away. As you get closer to retirement, you should move your money to some more conservative funds. Otherwise, you are buying low now. And that's a good thing.
