I have a few financial apps on my phone that I like and use regularly, but there are others that I don’t understand. Acorns fits into the second category. I’ve seen it recommended by some people, but it really doesn’t make much sense for me. I’ll be upfront about why I’m not a big fan:
This blog got started up with a custom domain name for about $35. Unless my traffic gets larger, that’s all I will have to pay for two years worth of service. That means that I’m only paying around $1.45 per month for a website with a custom “.com” domain name, SSL, and privacy protection. That’s really cheap! This blog is about making smart money decisions, so this doesn’t mean that you should just go start a website. However, if you were planning to start one anyhow, save some money!
So how is the website built and how can you build one?
There’s good – though not necessarily new – news for you if you’re in need of a new, functional desktop computer! It’s called the Raspberry Pi 3 and there is a decent chance you’ve heard of it. If you are a technical person, you probably heard of the pi a long time ago, but for some other people it deserves a mention. This computer runs Linux, not Windows so you will probably want to familiarize yourself with the differences before taking the jump.
It is hard to beat for the price though.
