It’s a good time of year for all of us to think a little bit about how rich we all already are, and to put things into a little perspective.

The Global Rich List is simple, yet effective. Just enter your annual income, and the site reveals how your wealth measures up on a world-wide scale. The site also gives you an opportunity to share your wealth by donating to charity.

Today, I am thankful for all that I have. I am thankful for my wonderful wife, our beautiful home, and our three cats. I am thankful that I can afford to indulge myself. I am thankful that I have a job that supports me and allows me to support others.

I am also thankful for the success of this site. It has surpassed my expectations, and it’s largely because of you, the readers. You make Get Rich Slowly what it is: a place to exchange ideas on frugality and money, a place where people can come for tips and advice and validation.

Thank you.
