If you are outside Europe and the US, please be sure to read thru the comments on this post. They have become a valuable forum for investors from all over the world. This all started when I wrote a series of letters forex hedge eur usd chf etf my daughter about financial stuff I felt was important for her to understand.

Stuff she wasn’t yet ready to or interested in hearing. I mentioned this to a couple of friends and, at their request, shared the letters. And so they could more easily pass it on to theirs. I simply never dreamed an audience would develop beyond my little circle of friends and family. I quite literally had no idea blogs could or did have larger readerships.

When I started this one, I barely knew what a blog was. In fact, the first blog post I ever read was my own. Then I began reading James Altucher, one of the first people to encourage me on this path. It was probably six months or so later before I stumbled on ERE. So as you might imagine, it really rather stunned me to see jlcollinsnh develop an international readership. Given my love of travel, this remains quite the thrill.
