What Do You Think About My New Blog Header?

If you visit my blog long enough, you will know that prior to today, my blog is without any header/banner i.e. it's plain text. I have been thinking to create a blog header for quite sometime to give some "identity" to my blog ;-)

Hence, I've just spent about 1 hour to create and fine-tuning it. So, what you see below is my brand new blog header/banner :

Invest Openly

I would like to ask for a favor from you folks to give me some comment/feedback on this new creation of mine. All feedback are welcome. Thank you in advanced. 

Oh, by the way, I like green and hence green is my theme color.



  1. Why you need to emphasize on "Late"?

    I also started serious investing late at 43+. May be older people have better control over their emotions and more patient. These two attributes may make them better long-term investors.

    Learn from George Soros:

    "It's not whether you're right or wrong that's important, but how much money you make when you're right and how much you lose when you're wrong." ~ George Soros

    1. CW8888, you got the point there.. Just like to speak my mind that I really start late as compared to the young folks mah! Also trying to give some hint to my reader that I am still a newbie ;-)

      But your non-serious (which is prior to 43) will give you enough foundation for your subsequent investing, so you should include them in too.

    2. Investing our money is not equal to learning to invest to achieve our financial independence goals. Many are just investing their money like what I have done before 43.

    3. CW8888, yes sir! But many of us (me including) are investing and learning at the same time. I guess we will learn our mistake along the way...

  2. Hi Richard,

    You are serious and even have a "specialized" non blogspot non Wordpress website. Green is nice and soothing.
    I also started blogging late almost same time. We have same slogan "better late than never"

    By the way, how to get the ads up and running, any idea?


    1. Hi Rolf, thanks for the kind comment. In fact, I am still using blogger platform, just using my own domain.

      As for the ads placement, the best network is Google's Adsense (but if you started your blog almost my time, you might not be able to use them yet, I think nowadays they allowed ads placement only if the blog is more than 6 months old). But you can try to check out the "Earning" menu in your blogger platform.

      Other alternative networks (but paying less) are Chitika and Infolinks.

      If you need some technical help on how to place the codes in your blog, feel free to email me at


  3. Hi Richard,
    Thank you so much for the information. I will go investigating and if there are any queries, I will drop you a note. Meanwhile, I enjoy the interview series of your blog. Well done and keep up the good work.


    1. Hi Rolf,

      Thanks for the kind words. I've replied to your email too ;-)
