Yesterday MSN Money featured my article on Slow Motion Retirement. It was linked on the front page of MSN, and generated a lot of visitors to this site. I want to thank the folks at MSN, who have been wonderful to work with over the past few weeks. In addition, MSN’s Smart Spending money blog features an article from The Dough Roller ever Wednesday. All of this is good news, but now on to some not so good news.
The price of a Berkshire Hathaway B share keeps rising. At the end of October, the B Share closed at about $4,414. Yesterday it closed at $4,750, up $336. At the same time, I only increased my cash to buy a B share by $120, all from blogging income. So last month I lost ground. What would be really nice is if the B Share could actually go down for a change.
A word about blogging income. For purposes of the B Share, I count blogging income once I receive it. In November, this blog generated more than $120, but some of that revenue was received in previous months, and some of it won’t be received until December or even January. In November, The Dough Roller earned about $260 from PPC, PPM and affiliate revenue. Hopefully I can make some positive progress toward the B Share in December.
