Flashback: Articles on Investing for Young Adults

In the past couple of weeks, I have started to brainstorm new topics and ideas for upcoming posts. Usually, I just write about what is going on in my life, but I have tried to be more proactive in writing articles that will help young adults with their money. It’s one thing to tell you all how committed I am to saving money, investing money for retirement, and all of those good things… It’s quite another thing to be a one-of-a-kind resource for young adults when it comes to money. Yet, that is what I aspire to be. And I am getting there (with the help of others).

One of the great things about a blog is that it is easy to see the newest content. Most blogs, like this one, feature the newest articles at the top of the page underneath the logo or navigation bar. Yet, the downside is that many great articles get buried. For example, if you just started reading this blog regularly, you might have missed some of the great content from 2012. In order of fix that, at least to a small degree, I want to start highlighting some of the old posts. This isn’t a ploy to stop producing great content. There will still continue to be at least three quality articles a week, but I’m hopeful that it will help many of you catch up on things you may have missed.
