My Very First Attempt At Building A Personal Finance Blog

I had not checked this blog for a while and it came to me as quite a surprise that in the email address associated with it, I found a notice from Google saying that it has been flagged as a spam blog.

I requested a manual inspection but I feel compelled to speak up here.

All About Finance was my first foray into building a website. Finance is what I like and am passionate about, and it was only fitting that my very first website was focusing on personal finance and sharing with the world things that I had learned.

Secondly, at the time I launched this personal finance blog, my knowledge of English did not warrant me writing any kind of long post of a semi-technical nature. So I relied on posts that had been written by others about topics that I knew enough about to know that they were accurate, but could not have written myself.

Lastly, I have not updated this personal finance blog in a while now simply because between then and now, I have been having less time to devote to it because I'm currently going to school full-time and working full-time hours, and time is at a premium. So while my english has improved to the point where I routinely write personal finance-related topics on a weekly basis for school, I simply don't have the time to do the same online.

I would hate to lose this blog on the false premise that it's a spam blog, but if I do, then so be it. I put this post up for two reasons. The first one is obviously to point out there's a real person behind this website. The second is to sort of explain why it hasn't been updated in a while.

Hopefully I will have saved my very first personal finance blog. It does have a sentimental value :)
