Hi James, you are right! It’s certainly not. Random sample. People who read personal finance blogs are way more likely to track their net worth then the average person.

The poll is more for fun.

My pain purpose with these polls or “discussion posts” as I think of them is to engage more with my readers. As a writer it can feel a little “one sided” putting out these blogs. I see people are reading them but I don’t always get to interact with them.

My hope is that I put more of these discussion posts the comment section can become a place where readers have a back and forth with me and hopefully even with each other.

Thanks for leaving a comment and the kind words about my writing.
