After 5 years, Early Retirement Extreme stopped writing for his highly popular personal finance blog. The posts and comments have been left up so that people can still read and learn about money and how to retire from the rat race. Note: I notice newer posts so I’m not sure if he returned at some point or if most are guest postings.
“Maybe about a year ago, ERE was still known only to a few [thousand] “insiders” who knew it well and it was great. Lately it has become widely known (I suppose partially this has been my own fault for wanting to get the message out) and thus I have become sort of a public figure [at least on the internets]… Well, I’ve found that I really don’t like being a public figure. I want my ideas to be famous and get attention but I don’t like my person to get attention.” See original post.
