With millions of blogs out there, of course the answer has to be no. So why am I doing this anyway? Because I am a writer and want to share my experience, insights and tips with the rest of the world. In becoming a financial planner, my objective was mainly to help people reach their dreams and enjoy financial peace of mind. Of course, that’s the mission of my financial planning and registered investment advisory firm YDream Financial Services, Inc. (YDream when you can plan?) Our web site, which I’ll admit is in serious need of revamping, is at http://www.ydfs.com.
Please bear with me for now as I learn the about the various features of this blogging platform and how to make the site more inviting and navigation easier. For now, this gets me up and running quickly and it will have to do.
I’m a financial guru of sorts and a self-proclaimed technogeek. Hence, the name I elected for myself is TheMoneyGeek. The purpose of this blog is to share my thoughts with you in hopes that I can help you make those all important decisions to help you reach your dreams. I’ll also write about tech trends and products that will make your life easier, save you money or are just plain fun.
As a fee-only financial planner with the Certified Financial Planner® designation and CPA, I’ll share my 28 years of tax, financial planning, investment and retirement planning expertise. To understand what fee-only really means and why you want a fee-only planner working for you, please visit http://www.napfa.org, the membership organization that I’m proud to be a member of. I’m also a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (http://www.aicpa.org) and the Financial Planning Association (http://www.fpanet.org)
My purpose is to inform and instruct, and, as financial expert Dave Ramsey says, I have the heart of a teacher. I promise this won’t be just another sales site, though I hope that you’ll consider us when you’re ready for professional help from an unbiased and unconflicted planner. My name is Sam Fawaz and I thank you for taking the time to stop by and hope you’ll find the content compelling enough to come back and that you’ll tell your friends about us. You can e-mail me at shf at ydfs dot com.

Glad to see you in the blogosphere. When you have a chance, set up an RSS feed for your content.
Check out FeedBurner.com (recently acquired by Google, so it’s easy to use). By adding your main URL into the site, FeedBurner will create a URL for your RSS feed.
See you around!

Great suggestion Bill, thanks! I used your idea and TheMoneyGeek Unplugge is now on FeedBurner. I was wondering how to make this happen, so thanks for the help.
