Goodbye, Mytutorlist.com!

Oh my goodness, it's been forever since I last wrote on here!  So much has happened since then.  I got married, I moved to a new home, I started investing in real estate... I have so much to tell you!  But before I hop into any of that, I want to tell you the very sad news that I have decided to finally close shop on my tutoring classifieds website, Mytutorlist.com.
I've had that website since my university days and it has served many students and tutors (and apparently people selling stuff from overseas).  However, it is very old now and uses outdated software.  It really needed an overhaul.  I was stuck between paying a lot of money to revamp the website, or paying a lot of money to keep that old site running old software.  They charge you to run old software.  Did you know that?

Well, I had started listening to this new podcast called The Bigger Pockets Money podcast.  They talk about money, financial independence and early retirement.  Now, I dunno about you, but I LOVE the idea of retiring early.  I mean, I would retire now if I could.  My friend sent me this awesome video of a guy quitting his job.  I wish I had the guts to do this.


Wouldn't it be amazing if we could all do this one day and kiss our stressful jobs goodbye?  Well, anyways, I decided that I would like to work towards early retirement.  So following the sage advice of those podcasters, I took a closer look at my expenses to see if anything was unnecessary.  Sadly, Mytutorlist.com didn't make the cut.  It costs me hosting and domain costs every month and yet I hardly look at the site anymore.  It makes maybe a few dollars per month in advertising.  That definitely does not offset the cost of keeping it. 

So thank you to those of you that were along with me on the journey of creating and running an online classifieds tutoring website.  I had fun creating it with my clever programmer, M. Paniagua Lojero and my trusty pal, V. Nand in 2006.  It's been a good, long run and it will be a fond farewell.

xoxo,
Marie
