I always find it interesting why people are open to tell the world how much money they have. Just like to pick your brain on what made you think "Ok, I'm going to let the world know how much money I have!"
This question is no longer accepting new answers because it is locked. What does this mean?
Lol that's financial bloggers for you. People know my net worth but do you know what stocks and investments I have? Or how much I put into each? How much is from my CPF vs other assets? No right?
I don't show off my net worth to the world - my blog is to track my own financial journey, and to hold myself publicly accountable for it. If people like to read and benefit from my writings, that's a plus.
It isn't as though my net worth is a lot either. There are people who do save more than $100k before they hit 30, for various reasons. Some save more, some spend less, some get lucky, some are born into privileged backgrounds, some earn more, etc. Many just like to pretend they're poor. I think pretence is lame.
I also don't answer all questions about my personal finances when people ask, especially if it is too intrusive. Overall net worth is okay I feel, since I don't provide how much of each component it is in specifics.
