Hello! Thanks for coming by, whether you’re a regular reader, lurker, or first-time visitor here.
The blog is a little over 6 months old now, and has been a fun ride thus far. There have been posts on money and relationships, including those involving marriage, dating, in-laws, and friends. Additionally, there have been a number of personal finance posts covering topics such as career, investing, and saving.
At this point, I’m certainly looking to keep up the focus of the blog, as mentioned above, just the same. Having said that , I’d also like to branch out here a bit, and add another component: reader stories.
By a reader story, I mean a post discussing a reader’s own financial situation. This might entail asking for advice on an issue with money and relationships, or simply sharing a story to vent 🙂 Or, it could involve asking a more general money question for the group. In any event, I think that it would be interesting and worthwhile for people to get questions answered from readers and the personal finance blogging community as well.
We’ll see how this goes, now that I’ve called this out. If you’d like to participate, please go to the submit your story page. Thanks!
