I am 20-something graduate student experimenting with blogging and personal finance. Golbguru does not mean anything. Golb is just the word ‘blog’ read from the wrong end ( Golb <–> bloG ).Â
About this blog
This blog started off on Google’s Blogger platform in December 2005 with absolutely zero motivation. Yeah, that’s true. At that time, I just didn’t know what to write about.Â It was not until September 2006 that I discovered that I could possibly write a lot more about money than any other topic. Since then, it’s been all about personal finance at the rate of about 1 post per day!
On November 16th 2006, I moved away from Blogger to the current domain. The real growth of this blog started after the move.
This blog is not a financial advising portal. If you are looking for professional financial advice, you need to see a professional financial advisor. Of course, you know better than to trust a 20-something graduate student (in a non-financial area of study) who blogs anonymously.
About my thoughts on advertising on this blog
I don’t display advertisements to “endorse” or “encourage” buying of any product. For me, advertisements are a source of revenue that subsidizes the efforts that are put into keeping this blog up and running. It’s like watching a TV…there are tons of advertisements on tons of products…it doesn’t mean that TV channels are *encouraging* you to buy the products…it’s upto the viewer to decide what is good and bad.
Since I do not endorse or encourage any advertisements on this blog, my content is not biased by the advertisements. I reserve the right to speak my mind against products/services even if there are advertisements about suchÂ products/services on this blog.
I do not participate in PayPerPost or ReviewMe programs.
