Two weeks ago I mentioned the beginning of my charitable donations from the blog — 10% of all blog revenue will be donated to charity..  Between donations from the blog, our 8-year old son, my wife, and me, we’ve now donated $440 to Hurricane Harvey relief.  Part of that went to H-E-B disaster relief, and part to the Houston foodbank (subscribe to receive my upcoming newsletter to learn the exact blog revenue). ...

This is the first in the $ave Money $eries.  I have several planned, each of which will cover ways I’ve saved some ca$hmoney without a great deal of effort (or ways I’ve heard of others doing so; also feel free to send in guest posts). When spending our hard earned money, I want us to make a modest effort not to overpay for goods or services.  I say a modest effort, ...

Today is the perfect day to announce the charitable mission of this blog.  If the blog survived a few months and generated some revenue, I wanted to donate a portion of the money to charity (partially inspired by the incredible blogger/doctor, PhysicianOnFire). So 10% of all blog revenue will be donated to charity.  Not 10% of income or profit — 10% of revenue.  That means 10% of any dollar received goes to ...

Our first newsletter — “Rogue Dad’s Best of the InterWebs” — is hopefully going to drop in a few weeks.  Subscribe to receive it (only 3-4x/year planned at the moment), along w/notifications of my weekly posts.  In addition to Blog/InterWeb article highlights, I’ll pull the veil and give blog statistics,  share my secret to MASSIVE blog profits, and teach you how to make the best type of paper airplane. When I ...

This blog went live in April, 2018 — I have yet to explain the blog tagline (“An alt-brown look at medicine, money, faith, and family”), or provide a blog “origin story.”  It’s probably taken this long because as in many other things, I take awhile to get to the point. I tend to ramble and meander before getting to the punch line. First — I need to mention a friend, Yasmin ...

This is a guest post from Anjali Jariwala, a certified financial planner and founder of FIT Advisors.  She provides an overview of some of the important tax and savings consequences of being an employee vs. being self-employed.  Anjali is a site sponsor, but this is not a paid post.   There are many pros and cons apart from the tax consequences that will drive your choice of employment setting.  Your net ...

Expect the Unexpected I glanced over at the infant and immediately became concerned. A moment ago he was smiling — now he was grunting, less interactive, and appeared very uncomfortable. It was a sudden change.  It’s a common scenario in pediatrics — kid appears to be doing great, until suddenly he isn’t. I looked to the nurse next to me — she had already seen it.  She knew what was coming; we ...

I had our first guest post planned for this week, however I did not have time to edit it.  Instead, I am sharing my favorite YouTube video: I can’t tell if my older brother modeled himself after this video, or they observed him for months before making it. I will admit that I have cheap a$$ sunglasses and a minivan that are eerily similar to those in the video.  My first kid, however, ...

This week I would like to introduce the second ever sponsor for this blog. Anjali Jariwala is a certified financial planner (CFP), and the founder of FITAdvisors.   I was hesitant to have a financial planner advertise on my site.  I think everyone needs financial advice, but I do not think everyone needs a financial adviser/planner.  I tell those I help educate on personal finance, to learn/do as much as they ...

You may have noticed that two advertisements have appeared in the sidebar of blog posts.  These are the first two official sponsors/advertisers on this blog.  I started this blog primarily as a creative outlet, largely to better understand myself and those around me (family, friends, and the world at large).  However I decided early on that if it had the momentum to continue, I wanted to use the blog to ...
