Set forth below is the text of an e-mail that I sent to the owner of the Frugal Dad blog on June 3.
This is Rob Bennett, author of the “A Rich Life” blog. I hope things are going well with you.
I would be grateful if you would consider the submission below for possible posting at your site as a Guest Blog Entry. In the event that you choose not to use it, I would be grateful if you would let me know so that I can shop it elsewhere.
The submission was entitled “We Are Ashamed to Talk About Our Investing Debts.”
Juicy Excerpt: Do you remember how you reacted to people who mentioned your credit-card debt in the days before you came to terms with it? With anger. With denial. With shame. That’s where we are today re the kind of credit-card debt that I am going to talk about in this article. The reason why you don’t hear about it is not because it doesn’t matter. it’s because it matters so much. We are hurting ourselves so badly that we cannot bear to speak about it. But just as you needed to come clean about your credit-card debt to get out of the hole you were in, we need to come clean about the other kind of credit -card debt to get out of the hole we have put ourselves in as a nation. I’m talking about Buy-and-Hold Investing.
I have received no response from Jason.
