The Almost Millionaire is a blog written by Brandon Ansel (I wonder if he’ll ask how I found out his last name), and it’s focus, for the most part, is on wealth and financial issues. He has this great quote on his About page that should be a classic: “I believe that financial stability comes about after HUNDREDS of little actions, not just a few big ones.” Long term success can’t be explained any better than that. And obviously, since Brandon only started this blog in September of 2008, he’s planning for long term success.
So, what is this blog about? Money; who doesn’t love that? Some of his articles are about selling products online, as this article on Clickbank shows. Some articles give personal financial advice, such as this article on the Top 10 Personal Finance Tips For 2009. Some of his articles are importantly informational, such as his article asking Where Is Your Cash In An Emergency. Some are motivational, such as his article on the 7 Habits Of Marginally Successful People; this one is a nice kick in the pants for those folks who aren’t giving their all in trying to be successful. And every once in awhile he has some fun with all of us, as in this article titled Random Facts About Jack Bauer (for those who don’t know, Jack Bauer is the name of the main character on ’24’).
I like Brandon’s writing style; even in articles that talk about concepts that might make some people’s eyes fog over, he has a way of writing so that it not only still informs, but is easy to understand.
There aren’t a lot of ads on this site, and I think some targeted ads would certainly benefit him. He also has a blogroll (who remembers our conversation on blogrolls) with a nice list of other financial blogs and website (then, out of the blue, I see Sire’s site and neither of mine, including my finance site; what’s up with that, Brandon lol)? The categories are lined up well also, and all on financial terms. Brandon’s blog is very well laid out, I’d have to say.
The Almost Millionaire is worth taking a look at if you’re interested in learning something about financial issues, including some income generating ideas. And one day, ask him about his music career; I’m betting he’s got some great stories to tell.
