Welcome to the new Retireat21 Site!

by Michael Dunlop

Hello Everyone,

Today I would like to welcome you to the new Retireat21.com! It’s been around a year since I have really worked hard on the site, to cut a long story short, HUGE programming errors and so we finally moved the whole site over to WordPress. For those of you who want to make sure they start their blog the right way, check out this FREE guide.

It’s quite funny looking back at the old site and the old posts, my spelling has come a long way (if I do have errors in this post, feel free not to point them out), my writing style and just my maturity in business. The reason we are giving this site a new look and a lot more work is because so often I hear from now successful entrepreneurs and they tell me that they in fact started with this site. This is where they got inspired and this where they come back to when they have a hard day. For most of us, this “make money online” thing doesn’t come easy, take a look at this post just to see how long it took me. The great thing about this site is it shortens the time to success, you get to learn from other people’s mistakes and you get the best information up front and for free!

Retireat21 has gone through a lot of face lifts over the 3 years, 4 months, 23 days the site has been live, here are some of them:

December 2006

May 2007

September 2007

December 2007

I hope you enjoy the new site, let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions for updates and new features.

To Your Success,

Michael Dunlop

PS. The site is still very much new, we know there are a few errors, we are fixing them.

PPS. Where have I been all this time? Launched a new site called IncomeDiary.com over a year ago and it really was just easier to use because it was run on WordPress. LEARN FROM THAT MISTAKE!

    excellent new version. I'm keeping you from Turkey. Unfortunately, like you, successful young people in this country are very rare. I'd like to help in this regard.

  2. Sterling

    I will always love your site. You got me started on thinking about being financially independent and making money online. BTW I really want that shirt you were showcasing on your front page of the old site. I have always wanted one. I forgot to ask how to get one. SO now I am, is it possible to get one?

    Good show brother, Excellent to see the transition over time, is this your main focus then or will your time be split over this and Income Diary?

    • admin

      Hey James, Will split my time between the two sites, but plan to work more hours so will see more work on both sites in fact :) Speak soon, Michael

  6. Tom

    I like it Michael! Now we have to wait for IncomeDiary redesign.

  7. Fazreen

    Cool design..much more better than before.

  8. Paul Sabaj

    Great look for the site. Looking forward to the new posts. It was great to see the way this has transformed over the years and that you always are looking to re-invent your look. By the way any future posts coming on your seminars that you went to at Yaniks and Ryanns. What do you think of them and would you go back. What other seminars would you advise to hit? Best of luck and cheers

    Looks great Michael, I was wondering when you were going to update this site!

  12. Chase Brumfield

    Looks great Michael. Have you checked out all the new Plugins facebook just released? Not sure if you'd be interested but it allows some really interesting social interaction of your users while staying on your site. Super easy integration too, just copy and paste code. People can even "like" your articles straight from your site. Here's a link, just thought you might be interested http://developers.facebook.com/plugins

  22. Syed Balkhi

    The new design looks great Mike. Keep up the good work.

  23. webmaster

    Thank you Syed, Thank you everyone for the kind comments. We are still working on some things on the site - things are not quite as neat and perfect as we would like. Converting the parts of the site using the old custom CMS to Wordpress has been an interesting experience and a lot has been learned ;-)
