It sure has been a long time since I have generated much activiy on this site. I basically stopped looking at other blogs in my blogroll at bloglines so much because it was such a time waster. Now I just look at a few selective blogs, mostly the Canadian ones. And let’s face it, most blogs are crap anyways. 😉 I started pruning off all sorts of blogs, any blog that made reference to Kiyosaki in a positive light, anything that talked about credit card balance transfer money-making schemes, any blogs obsessive about producing ad revenue (more so than they were about investing), or anything else that I felt wasn’t worth my time. I still have far too many blogs listed in my bloglines account though. I really should trim it down more.
So what have I been up to on the financial front? Not much, everything has been going really smoothly the past few months. I have not talked to my financial advisor in a LONG time. I am just pumping the cash into my RRSP and my wife’s RRSP every month and he is accumulating it until there is enough to buy something like an ETF. I honestly have not even checked the status of my portfolio in at least 2 months. I really do not care if it has gone up by 3% or gone down by 3% during that time. That’s the way I like it, just focused on the long term performance, not worrying at all about day-to-day market activity. On the personal finance front, my spending system is working great and I hope to describe it in detail some time soon.
