New Financial Independence blog coming at Moneysense.ca
Apologies for a hiatus blogging here but the new position as editor of MoneySense magazine has not permitted a lot of blogging. Since joining five weeks ago, we have put out the June issue of the magazine, now available on newsstands and the iPad.
I’m happy to report that I will soon be blogging at MoneySense.ca, though it’s unlikely the frequency will be anything like the old Wealthy Boomer blog housed at the Financial Post.
The new blog will likely be titled simply Financial Independence, which is of course the ongoing theme of this site here at FindependenceDay.com. One of the things I’ll be doing on the blog is reviewing any books that touch on this theme: publishers and book publicists take note! My email at the magazine is firstname.lastname@example.org.
By the way, the first piece I’ve written for the print edition of the magazine (June issue on news stands now) is the Editor’s Note at the front. There I note what this site often sets out: the difference between “Retirement” and “Financial Independence.” It also introduces a new writer to the magazine: Preet Banerjee and announces acting editor Dan Bortolotti is now our Editor at Large. Dan’s cover story on “Renovate your portfolio” presents three low-cost ETF portfolios of the “Couch Potato” genre he and the magazine are famous for.
Change a life for 20 bucks
MoneySense publishes seven issues a year and costs about $20 a year to subscribe, or less if you’re a Rogers customer. I’d say that’s pretty good value. Click here for details on how to subscribe or better yet, provide a gift subscription to a loved one. (Change someone’s life for 20 bucks!)
In addition to the new blog, I continue to “tweet” (@JonChevreau) and Moneysense.ca will also start scrolling my Twitter feed and other feeds associated with the magazine.
Lots of other stuff to come!
