2020: The 20somethingfinance Year in Review

2020: enough said.

No description or recap necessary. No way to sugarcoat it. It was a truly awful year.

Was it the worst year in recorded history? No, we’ve had worse. COVID inarguably had a huge negative health and economic impact on billions of humans worldwide, and we happen to be going through a very politically divisive moment in U.S. history, but it was a relatively peaceful year for our species, per capita.

With at least 2 highly effective vaccines ramping up production, there is hope on the horizon that 2021 will be a much better year. That will only happen, however, if enough of us contribute to making it so (this pandemic has really amplified our true character, for better or worse). Until then, you can find me burrowed under a weighted blanket somewhere.

2020 review

20somethingfinance is celebrating its 13th anniversary this week. 2020 saw 42 published posts were added to the archives this year (mostly new, with some major re-writes worked in). I will be giving a self-assessment of 2020 and set some goals for 2021 within the next week.

As a note to newcomers, this site is still an independent, 1-person show and has been since day 1 (with the support of wonderful friends, family, subscribers, and readers/commenters, of course!). All of the articles here are written by me – no ghost writers, no fillers, no guest blogger pandering, no sponsored post garbage, etc. I write about the stuff that I find interesting and think most of us can benefit from knowing. Hopefully, some of it resonates, inspires, entertains, and/or educates.

As always, feedback is welcome. What has stuck with you? What influenced positive change? Are there any particular topics that you’d like me to explore, re-explore, or dig deeper on? Please share your feedback and requests in the comment section.

Also, if you are relatively new here or haven’t yet done so, you can follow the 20SomethingFinance Facebook page, follow me on Twitter, and/or subscribe to get new posts – for free – via email. And check out the money saving products page for updated recommendations on my favorite products/services to help readers save money. Here are the top articles of the past year…

Cheers to a better 2021. Stay safe out there.
