So, I've been using the iPad for 10 days now, and I both love and hate it. Ultimately, I regret buying it. No joke. When it was announced, I knew the iPad was meant for content consumption, and I was cool with that. I figured Kris and I would use it around the house all the time. Right now, we use t...

Hey, Ann. Thanks for the feedback. The content and tone of Get Rich Slowly have changed over the past few years. As I've grown and changed, so too has the blog. This might be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on who you are and where you're at. If there's a disconnect between me and the readers...

@DTR The 6.5% long-term real return (meaning after-inflation return) for U.S. stocks is well-documented. It's actually 6.8%, if I recall correctly, over most periods of 30 years or more, and has been since 1802. For documentation, check out Jeremy Siegel's Stocks for the Long Run , where he belabor...

This is the first I've heard of this guy, but I just watched his video here: http://www.tdiw.com/ I have to say that I agree with everything he says here, but this short video doesn't actually say anything about his business practices or his "system". I'll try to learn more. I keep saying ...

Hello, forum denizens. It's been a long time since I stopped by. I hope you're all being nice to each other! :) For three years now, I've tried to dedicate most Fridays to reader questions. I get a lot of e-mail, and most of the messages contain problems that readers need help solving. I reply to wh...

Yes, this is legit. Robert is a CFP and author. He and I have communicated in the past, and I got to see a draft of his first book before he published it. I trust him and don't think he's out to defraud anyone!

Hey, folks. I'm working with another designer to get a logo for Get Rich Slowly. This designer (or designers, really) liked the former turtle/tortoise them, but is trying to make it slightly different. If you get a chance, please vote on the options here: http://www.getrichslowly.org/blog/april-logo...

In addition to my new weekly radio/podcast show with Jim from Bargaineering.com, I'm doing a one-time phone call with Ramit from I Will Teach You to Be Rich this weekend. We can certainly fill up the time chatting amongst ourselves, but we'd be happier addressing questions and concerns from <i>you</...

Believe it or not, I already thought of this. However, I don't have the time this year. :(

Bluebell, prod me to do this next year. And to get a guest post from Feminist Finance! :)

Thanks, Ty, but I'm happy with my current designer. Should she and I part ways, I'll be sure to let you know.

Thanks, <b>@graphicgeek</b>. The reason I like the turtle is it conveys approachable. (Well, to *me* anyhow.) I'm trying to find a balance here between serious and not. Does that make sense? I do agree that the slowly is what ought to be emphasized, and not the rich. I'm not *opposed* the graph idea...
