New Page Added to Blog

Not much of an update here today, but I did add a Progress page to the blog.  The Progress page will keep track of my yearly net worth improvements as well as annual and quarterly passive income as well as expenses to show the progress that I've made toward reaching early FI.  It's more of a consolidation page if you're looking for a quick overview, obviously you can go through the whole blog to get the details.  I hope that consolidating this information can help motivate people to pursuing early FI because it will truly be a wonderful day when I no longer have to work and can choose to do so however and whenever I want without needing the income.

  1. That's a nice touch! This page will add a lot of value to those who want to track year-to-year results, and get a quick feel for how the overall progress is going. By the time you are done, you should probably publish a "How to retire early" manual.

    Your net worth has doubled in less than a year! Now those are some results worth getting excited over. Awesome progress, man!

    1. FI,

      I think it's a good page to just give a quick overview of how things have progressed. My net worth increase has been awesome. I increased it almost $67.5k the first year I tracked it and I will probably hit an $80k increase for this year. And the increases should keep climbing as long as I keep the job I currently have. I just might have to get a manual together. I hope that this can help to inspire people and let them see that it can be done.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. The new page looks sharp. What did you use to make those tables?

  3. CI,

    Thanks. I used the tables from my dividend income page. I originally found a basic table outline on the internet and then adjusted it to fit my color scheme a little. I'm trying to figure out home to make some expandable tables so it can consolidate it like I have on my spreadsheets but that's proving to be tougher than I thought. Oh well, it gives me something to work on.

    You should be able to right click on that page and select view source or view code and it will show you the html code behind it, if you want to play around with it.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Thanks and no problem. That's one of the main reasons I started this blog was to be able to help other people and encourage them by showing them that it is possible. I'm hoping to be able to hit early FI before 40 which I should be able to knock a few years off that if I can continue down the path that I've been on for the last 2 years. I know it'll change a little in the future because my wife and I will be having children. But that's still over a year out so I'm getting as much saved no as possible.

      Thanks for stopping by!
