Living debt free is a habit not a choice

Living debt free is a habit not a choice

Hello everyone. As you could be noticed I have shared some guest post about various topics like prepping or the new land of opportunity. I have no intentions to turn this blog into the go-to place when you have to look for general financial wisdom, there are loads of other blogs which fulfill this mission much better than mine so I try to keep this (my) corner of the internet a funny place where geeky finance nerds can hang out…

Coders Of Finance – WhatLifeCouldBe

Coders Of Finance – WhatLifeCouldBe

Welcome back geeky FIRE seekers. Today I brought you the story of my newest (ex)coder-blogger friend all the way from the heart of Europe. Shame on me, I only found out about the existence of their great blog, WhatLifeCouldBe.eu  a couple of weeks ago but digging through it is in progress. It turned out that they are very close to us both in terms of family situations and geographical distance. Enjoy! Introduction Tell us about yourself! Heya. I’m Rob. We’re a…

America is No Longer The Land of Opportunity

America is No Longer The Land of Opportunity

Today I am happy to share you the second guest post on this blog. To be honest I asked my friend, MSF a couple of months ago if he wants to write the first guest post for my site but back then he was busy enjoying a sneaky blogging break and pretending that he is dead after a scary post about his health. For over a month he was in the state of Schröedinger’s cat for us but fortunately, it…

Coders of Finance – Brent Truitt

Welcome back geeky FIRE seekers. Maybe you remember that last time I promised that my next interviewee will be a woman. That was the plan but you know, life happens all the time so I had to make a little change in the schedule. But don’t be afraid, because I brought to you one of my favorite bloggers who is blessed with exceptional writing skills. He published an eBook recently which I recommend very much. If you don’t believe me check…

Funny Friday – VIP

Funny Friday – VIP

A long time has passed since I have posted a Funny Friday post and even that was a wrap-up and a farewell from the series. Then I stated that I will retire the series and will focus on creating single memes. As it turned out this is not working very well and recently I was reminded that once I have this periodical memes post which was funny. So I thought that I will put together an issue once more and…

Prepping for Non-Preppers 101

Prepping for Non-Preppers 101

Let me present you the first guest post on this blog. I follow many blogs (not enough but still more than I should) but only a handful of them rise above the others because of the character, personality and/or writing style of the author. This first guest post was written by one of those three bloggers whom I adore because of their interesting writing style and special way of thinking about the things of this crazy world. If you still…

Coders of Finance – Think Save Retire

Coders of Finance – Think Save Retire

Welcome back geeky FIRE seekers. It’s not that I will publish the new episodes of the Coders of Finance series one day later, just this holiday mixed week was packed with AFK adventures and I was barely able to sit next to the monitor. As the weather becomes better and better the great outdoors is calling me and who am I to resist this calling 🙂 As I promised in the last episode this time my interviewee will be a real blogging…

How to get over your financial hangover

How to get over your financial hangover

I have revealed some details about our current landscaping and “relawning” project. We made good progress so we thought we can have a day of rest and having fun. Some friends came over and we had a grill party. Recently, I acquired two bottles of homemade Rakia (a spirit, which is very popular in my country) so we went on with some tasting. Long story short, we had a good time, but unfortunately, I lost my sanity and the night closed…

Coders of Finance – Abandoned Cubicle

Coders of Finance – Abandoned Cubicle

Welcome back geeky FIRE seekers. It seems that we cannot leave the Twin Cities without having our other local fellow blogger featured in this series. He is Cubert who blogs over at AbandonedCubicle.com. As you will see (or as you know) he does not have a coder job but he works in IT, still had his share of coding back in the days. Featuring not only coders but anyone who works in IT was part of my initial plans, just…

Call the man or be the man

Call the man or be the man

The past two weeks were extremely busy in the [HCF] household and we are still looking forward a lot more to come. Maybe some of you noticed that I was AFK since Good Friday. Living in a country like Serbia while belonging to the largest minority group has its advantages and disadvantages. I was experiencing the former lately in the form of unexpected holidays. The vast majority of citizens are Eastern Orthodox Christians (~85%), and the second one are Catholics…
