Today, Fearless Men hit the 1 year milestone!

Most Wanted

Looking back I can’t believe it’s been one year since Todd and I started this adventure. Neither of us knew anything about blogging. Neither of us were writers. It did help that we’re at least readers. ha! We are both passionate about learning every day and then sharing those lessons with others. We enjoy challenging each other to become better men.

We started knowing nothing but we learned a bit….and then we acquired All Things Finance and rebooted it last Month.

We couldn’t have done it without you all!

If you’re reading this article then most likely you’re a part of our Fearless Men readership.

Big thanks to Jon @ Free Money Wisdom and Jeremy @ Modest Money

Jon is our good friend here in San Diego and is the one who first suggested starting a blog. From there we chose a niche and name.

Jeremy we’ve never met in person but as many of you already know is willing and ready to help anyone.

John @ Frugal Rules we also met through Al Gore’s internet around November. His results (PR4 in 3 months) and strategy (Guest posting everywhere) really invigorated Todd and I to start focusing on other blogging strategies in addition to writing. We’ve received solid advice from him.

Joe @ The Free Financial Advisor included us in his podcast “2 Guys & Your Money” Special Skyfall Release Episode: What if James Bond Needed Financial Advice?

Thank you to all who have let us guest post, swapped blog rolls, commented, tweeted…you name it!

Many more of you have also played a key role in our growth and success – Thank you!

  1. Hey Guys, I just stumbled on this blog this morning, and am already hooked. I definitely think there is a need for blogs of this caliber in the “Men’s” market, and you guys have a great one started here. Awesome stats for just one year on the job!

  2. Happy 1 year! Your site is doing awesome.

    Thanks for the mention 🙂

  3. Congrats on making it to year two. Can’t wait to see what you do in the next year. Thanks for mentioning my article.

  4. Wow, big congrats guys! I am thankful to have “met” you guys and thanks for your help along the way as well. I am starting to think that you & Todd no longer sleep and are writing machines, Lol! 🙂 Keep up the great work and here’s to an even better year 2! Thanks for the mention as well.

  5. Congrats on the one year gentlemen. That is quite the accomplishment and I am glad you are restarting All Things Finance. Keep up the awesome work and I am sure it will pay off.

  6. Very happy for you guys. You definitely deserve the success you have received.

  7. That’s awesome! Congratulations and keep it up. Thanks for the links.

  8. Thanks for the link! And congratulations–great accomplishments!

  9. Thanks for the mentions and congratulations! I hope I can celebrate a one year mark too! Shooting for six months for now 🙂

  10. With those kinds of stats, there is no way you should still be a 2. If you have those coding errors fixed, I’m predicting a 4 next time.

  11. Wow, congrats on one year! That’s huge in blog time. Also thanks for including me and for guest posting at Eyes on the Dollar.
