Welcome to the New Wise Dollar!

Wise DollarWelcome everyone to the new Wise Dollar! For those who had been following Wise Dollar, it was started by Jose back in early 2013 and through a set of various circumstances found himself with little time to manage the blog. Having run a blog myself for almost two years now, I can attest to how time consuming managing a blog can be.

That said, I suspected Jose was having problems with the time needed to manage the site and reached out to him as I didn’t want to see the good foundation he had started go away. Long story short, I’ve purchased the site from Jose and will be looking to continue what he started. πŸ™‚ I plan to continue building much on what Jose had previously started here on the site.

Beyond that, I’ll be looking to share basics on how to be smart when managing your money…thus the name Wise Dollar! πŸ˜‰ We’ll be covering such topics as:

  • Investing
  • Wise use of credit
  • How to avoid and/or pay off debt
  • Frugality
  • A little lifestyle to boot!

Joining me in this endeavor will be one of my favorite writers in the personal finance niche, Laurie from The Frugal FarmerΒ as she will be sharing her voice with us several times per month.Β Most of the content on the site is admittedly a little old, but we will be adding some solid new content over the next few days and weeks that will hopefully bring you back for more. πŸ™‚

Ok, now it’s shameless plug time. If you would consider following Wise Dollar on the following social platforms that would be much appreciated:


Til next time everyone and thanks for following our journey!

  1. Congrats John and Laurie! What a nice surprise to find you here. I can’t even remember how I found this site. I think it may have been from Twitter. I’m adding this to my reader. I can’t take the chance of missing something from a couple of my favourite PF bloggers!

  2. I remember being so bummed when Jose’ said he was not going to have the time to blog here anymore – his writing is so captivating. Then when John approached me, telling me that he’d purchased WD and wanted to know if I’d write for him, well, the only better thing would be if I’d purchased it myself! πŸ˜‰ John, thanks so much for putting WD back on the map, and for allowing me to join you on this great adventure. πŸ™‚

  5. Congrats on the new site, John! It looks like you’ve really expanded your web presence the past year or so and I’m excited for where it takes you. As a full-time employee I can relate to Jose and others who struggle to find the time to manage a blog. If you don’t have a flexible day job schedule a blog can be a huge burden. I’ve been meaning to get around to tweaking and working on the design of my site for probably a year and a half now, but simply have had other priorities on the site. Congrats to Jose on the sale and you on the purchase!

  6. Glad to see Wise Dollar again! Congrats on the site as well.

    One thing – I did notice that the social media icon widget to the left sort of overlaps the comments. It’s not too distracting, but I just thought I’d let you know πŸ™‚ I’m on Firefox.
