Missing in Action

Jonathan Clements, 12:47 am ET

SINCE EARLY JANUARY, this site has published a series of essays every Saturday, each from a different HumbleDollar writer. The theme: my money journey. The essays, 30 in all, will appear in a book of the same name, which will be published by Harriman House in March 2023. With this blog post, you get a sneak peak at the book’s cover.

As you might imagine, the book has meant a lot of work for the writers involved—and a ton of editing for me, with an able assist from HumbleDollar’s deputy editor, Greg Spears, and also some help from Joe Kiefer. Earlier this week, I finished editing essay No. 28. That means I have one more essay to edit (you know who you are), and then my own essay and the book’s introduction to write, plus some fine-tuning to do.

I don’t mention this just to whet your appetite for the book to come. I’ve also been receiving a surprising number of emails, asking whether I’ve fallen ill or departed the site for greener pastures. Rest assured: I’m still here.

While I haven’t had time to do much of my own writing in recent months, everything that appears on the site passes through my laptop. Yes, I edit every piece of content that HumbleDollar publishes. I don’t necessarily agree 100% with every article by every writer. But I wouldn’t allow an article to appear unless I thought it had something of value to say—and I certainly wouldn’t publish anything if I thought its advice was wrongheaded.

Meanwhile, look for more pieces penned by me starting in June. Until then, enjoy the articles and blog posts by HumbleDollar’s other writers. Frankly, given their quality, I’m surprised I’m missed.

You bring up an interesting phenomenon. For many people, if it’s not in the news, it doesn’t exist for them, it’s not in their consciousness. Conversely, what’s in the news is the sum total of what what the world is comprised of. You went into that netherworld of media non-existence.

I agree with you, William. How to Think About Money is a classic.

I’m am also very much looking forward to reading Jonathan’s chapter in the book as well as his wonderful pieces on HumbleDollar in the weeks and months to come.

I had bought your book How to Think About Money when it first came out and received it from Harriman House shipped from the UK in short order. I consider that book purchase to be money well spent. I hope you will advise here when the new book may be ordered. Thanks to you and the writers for the informed and civil articles, blogs and comments.

How to Think About Money was the first thing of Jonathan’s that I read, and besides being a great book I continue to recommend, also caused me to do an internet search and find more, including Humble Dollar. A great find indeed.
