Today is March 31st and my passive income experiment comes to a blogging end. I’m still working on my passive investing goals but I’ve decided to stop writing about them. The main reason? I’m exhausted.
I’m exhausted writing posts, chasing SEO, and coming up with new topics at least once a week to keep the eyeballs on my posts. It’s been insane for me juggling my family, my elder parents, work, and whatever short free time I have.
Why should I care about all this anyways? I’m creating nothing but noise in the end, feeding the bloated Internet. …
I promised not to post on Medium again but I’m breaking my rule for one good reason. I want to provide guidance to frustrated Medium writers who want to take control of their work again and income again.
Before I go into a small rant about Medium (and the derivatives like Substack), I will give props where they are due. Medium has given a new set of emerging writers a platform to reach a new audience. Those writers were able to make a living off of their hard work and that’s awesome, but…
While it’s futile to try to figure…
Last night I read a Tweet by Bernie Sanders, everyone’s favorite cranky grandfather. He’s not cranky in the sense “we walked uphill in the snow, both ways” cranky, but he’s “to have a well-functioning society for all, we all need to pay our fair share” cranky.
His tweet took aim at Elon Musk’s SpaceX program and made a remarkably salient point, why are we rushing to Mars when we can’t even feed our children?

Elon Musk is a troll, and I can’t stand this level of “in your face” hubris. I’m not a religious guy but I do believe that “pride does go before a fall.” Why do I believe in that? Because I’ve lived it a few times.
Effective as of March 15, 2021, the titles of Elon Musk and Zach Kirkhorn have changed to Technoking of Tesla and Master of Coin, respectively. Elon and Zach will also maintain their respective positions as Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer. (via TSLA 8-k)
Why am I bent up over something as silly as…
Where are you hiding?
Shall we play like
Or shall we be
adult about it?
I seek you but you are
just out of my grasp.
You are the scent
on a lover’s bedsheet.
The extra coffee cup
on the kitchen counter.
An incomplete song, missing
that one note.
Come out wherever you are!
I want to hold you like a lover.
Tenderly and passionately.
I want to paint you with
all the colors of creation.
I want to climb a mountain
and behold your view.
Why do you hide from me?
It was a musical thing, and you were supposed to sing, or to dance while the music was played. — Alan Watts
I struggled with where to publish this article. Part of me wanted to post this to my regular blog Neural Market Trends because it’s where I’m writing about this particular subject a lot. The other part of me thought it would be best to share it on Medium with a larger audience. Guess which part won? They both did.
I’ve been studying the market for passive income and side hustles for a long time. The simple reality is…
I want to know how Hemingway felt when he first saw Cuba. Did he see the mountains break through the horizon first? Or did it appear as if by magic across the rolling gulf waters?
I see you across the room. An undiscovered flower, hidden among the noise and entrapment of society. Will you take my hand if I offer it? May I have this dance?
My training wheels are off, my father gives me the last push. Freedom flows through my hair and sweaty t-shirt. Two wheels. Oh the places I will go!
My friend, you went too early…
The entire investing world is talking about GameStop Inc ($GME). If you visit the link to StockTwits during the regular trading day you’d see a massive stream of posts on it. Everyone is Bullish on it!
The demand to buy shares is so high that Robinhood and other brokerages have restricted how many shares you can buy. Is this the right thing to do? I don’t know, I’m not a lawyer nor do I know how Robinhood and other brokerages work. Still, it smells of market manipulation and it’s exactly what whips the r/WallStreetBets crowd into a froth.
Thrax sat in a low lit Inn. He chose a table in the back of the room that faced the front door. He was in his civilian clothes, no sword and no armor. He had a dagger at his side and that made him feel more comfortable.
He was hungry and it had been a long day. His sword arm hurt but not enough to stop him from lifting a mug of ale to his mouth. He greedily gulped the cool amber liquid.
More ale, he thought, he needed more ale! He looked around for the serving girl. She raced…
The fundamental shift in the market that began when Robinhood started has finally manifested itself for the world to see. The melt-up of stocks like Tesla, Gamestop, AMC, and even Blackberry is a result of what’s being called the meme stock market economy.
I say, bring it on!
It’s part investor activism by gathering like-minded retail investors together and buying (bidding) up over shorted stocks and crushing hedge funds in the process. Once considered the weak hands for hedge funds to ‘fleece’, they’ve become the strong hands now.
