Our Top 10 Most Popular Posts in 2 Years of Blogging

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Wow, it’s been already two years since we started blogging. We posted our first article exactly on Valentines Day in 2015 and now have a total of 84 posts. These numbers aren’t huge because we haven’t tried to post on a regular schedule, as other things took priority in life. Writing for Enchumbao is what we do when we’re most inspired and have the time to write.

Out of those 84 posts, these are the top 10 that keep attracting new visitors. Some posts get most hits from the search engines. The first one of the list got a huge rise to the number one spot since its release thanks to the feature on RockStar Finance. Thank you, J. Money and Cait Flanders, for exposing our work and all the hard work that you do to keep us informed with RockStar Finance. We love what you guys got going there.

We’d also like to thank other bloggers that have featured our work as well, including Physician On FIRE, Simplicity Voices, and Future Proof MD. A huge THANK YOU also goes to all of you, the readers, who continue to follow our journey.

We’re very excited about what we have coming for Enchumbao as the next chapter of our lives unfolds, and we’ll be sure to take you along for the ride. Without any further ado, here’s our top 10 list.

Mr. Enchumbao

I work for a large investment management company helping people save for traditional retirement. During my spare time, I write about our FIRE journey here, at Enchumbao. My journey to FI began in 2012. I was in a lot of debt back then, but I turned things around and became debt free a few years later. My wife and I reached financial independence in 2017 and are preparing to retire soon.
