Whenever I see gobs of hate hit our blog here, I know for a fact it’s been picked up in the media lately and people for some reason feel the need to go out of their way to spread the nastiness… Such was the case the other week when one of Mr 1500’s posts got picked up by Business Insider and over 200,000+ people viewed […]

What If You Just Don’t?

I’ve caught myself getting into a nasty habit lately – spitting. For some reason, any time I’m near water of any kind (sink, bath, shower) my body automatically wants to unload the saliva in my mouth as if I’m in a spitting competition with the world’s feistiest llama. It’s been going on for a few years now, but yesterday for whatever reason I decided I […]

[As part of our weekly column by Mr. 1500 of 1500Days.com – a fellow blogger who retired at 43!] ****** My cover as a blogger was blown last year when a story about us went viral. I knew something was wrong when the blog went down. When it finally came back up, I had over 30,000 page visits and it was still before noon. On that day, we […]

Thumbnail image for $20 Does The Trick!

I’ve caught myself offering the same advice lately, anytime someone asks me whether they should pay off their debts or start saving for an emergency fund, or start investing, or start saving for an emergency while they’re paying off debt and investing all at the same time. And that’s simply been: “Just start putting $20/mo towards them!” Nothing too crazy or earth shattering, but definitely […]

[As part of our new weekly column by Mr. 1500 of 1500Days.com] ***** Did you know that the Titanic almost didn’t sink? Here’s what happened: The captain took corrective action when the ship was about 1000 feet away from the iceberg. The starboard (right) side of the ship brushed the ice, tearing open five compartments (the ship could sustain damage to four and stay afloat). The rest of […]

This probably comes off strange right after our post on hiring escorts Friday, but what can I say – we’re an equal opportunity blog here :) And truth be told, this stuff is much more aligned with my own views and lifestyle, despite it not being as sexy (quite literally!). I got this email from another reader of our site – we’ll call her “Gloria” […]
