Post my current financial situation and then seek advice on what tweaks or moves should be made, if any? Funny thing is I just sort of muddle through and for all I know, I could be making a big mistake somewhere.

People do this all the time on the bogleheads site, but I think one should read there for a few weeks first, so that they see what others do when they post a "Please pimp my portfolio" discussion. It will make their own post better and more informed.
Absolutely appropriate but use caution. Some advices may not be right for you.
( ... something I came to frown upon are the ones with "I've got $5M & $60k annual expense, can I retire?" The answer is resounding yes and I question if the OP's true intent is to boast/get pad on his/her back or to seek real advice, especially, after lurking in the forum for awhile )
...Who on this site seem to provide better advice and input than professionals and close family and friends IMO. I was initially surprised to see people posting up their financial data on a public forum. My upbringing led me to feel that this is a private matter always. Now I believe that there is a real psychological benefit of sharing such sensitive info with other like minded people who aren't judgmental.
