Thanks for stopping by, and welcome to our site! We look forward to telling you our story through this blog, sharing our experiences, learning, and experimenting with our unique lifestyle designs. You can get more details on our About page.
So – what the heck do I talk about in my first post? I have so many ideas going through my head, but I do not know where to start. Okay I guess I did start someplace by writing down those ideas for future blog posts.
Some Random Topics
- Setting goals
- Budgeting or spending plans (what they are, or sugar coating the description)
- Building passive income, and if not, why the heck aren’t you doing that?
- Debt snowballs and their various permutations
- “Why I can’t pull the trigger” series (this of course will be exposing our souls)
- Case studies
- Rules of thumb
- Lessons learned
- Work/life/play balance
The blogging community has had quite an impact on me over the years as I read post content and comments from readers. Many of these blogs I have been following for years. In fact, 5 years ago we nearly launched our blog. Of course, the operative word is “nearly”. It has now finally clicked and I am taking the plunge!
I have to give credit where credit is due. Two words – Kraig Mathias.
Ok, how about 3 words – the “Young Cheap Living” blog which then morphed into the Create My Independence blog and website. Kraig recently offered several free workshops that walked his email subscribers through a step-by-step process for setting up your very own website and blog. It was highly informative, motivating, and just finally put me over that cliff. Arghhh! I am going to be a “gosh-darn” blogger!
So I think this may be all I need to write for my first post. Should I say more? I guess there will be plenty more to discuss in the future.
