What Exactly is Moolanomy?

January 21, 2009

That’s a good question, one that I asked the first time I visited the site Moolanomy.com. The simple answer is “The Science of Money”. For a little more detail, we’ll take a look at man behind scenes over at Moolanomy.com.

I first started reading Moolanomy, authored by Pinyo, about a year ago and have enjoyed getting to know him through his blog. Pinyo is certainly a high achiever, cranking out quality blog posts on the topic of money, building a social media site PF Buzz, all while staying very active in the personal finance community online. Where does he find the time : ) He has quite an about page, here is a brief summary of his personal details.

Moolanomy’s bio

Pinyo is 34, he’s married, and he has a baby boy named Gavin. He and his family live in Queens, New York, and he works as an IT manager during the day. Moolanomy is his side project to make some extra income so his wife can stay at home with their baby. Him and his wife share everything, and they believe marriage and money should be two people working together for one common financial goal. If he’s not working or blogging, he enjoys going to the movies, biking, reading, traveling, and playing chess and video games.

  • Personal Finance Ology

    I actually got the idea for my site from his. Mine is personal finance ology or the study of personal finance. I like his blog, thx for posting his bio.

  • The Digerati Life

    Nice background on Pinyo! I wish I could stay home to take care of the “babies”. While I do some of that, my household is more of an equal opportunity household. Equal opportunities to do everything from chores, kid care, and earning a living.

    Hi Ben, thank you for the shout out. Not too many people know what Moolanomy is. Might be easier if you break it down to Moola-no-my 🙂

    Just a quick update. I am 35 now and my wife did return to work, so the extra income from the blog is a really nice additional income for our family.

    Again, thank you for the shout out.
