As of May 2014, I have moved my operations to Thripp.com. Please visit there for my latest work.
As of 2014-10-03, I have disabled the ability to leave comments on posts and pages on richardxthripp.thripp.com. As an alternative to adding CAPTCHA images, since everything on this site was written years ago, disabling commenting eliminates all comment spam.
A few days ago, I started a new WordPress website called Tippyfi, with the tagline “making financial independence typical, one person at a time.” This will be a financial education website that I eventually hope to turn into a venture that provides financial advice in an innovative way. While I wrap up my Ph.D. in Education at University of Central Florida over the next 18 months, my goal is to write 100 really useful articles for the site (so far, I have three).
Presently, you are reading my old website I worked on from December 2007 to May 2014, before moving to Thripp.com. There, I have written quite a bit about personal finance in the past couple years, but often in a manner that is not accessible to the public. With Tippyfi, I am writing more accessible, edgy, image-laden pieces that develop, extend, and provide concrete examples for the financial benefit of my readers. Some of my articles will be “deep dives,” such as my new article on how credit card interest is actually calculated (hint: it’s unfavorable to the customer).
Join me over at Tippyfi as I start this new journey.
These photos are mostly from San Francisco and the Montery Bay Aquarium from my trip to California in July, 2012. There are some from May and June, also.
I need to find a WordPress plugin or code one to make it easier to post photos here. I might not get to it until the end of the year, and I might just start posting photos without bothering to tag them, describe them, and upload stock versions.
