So I’m realizing that this blog is probably going to end up skewing heavily toward personal finance.
It makes sense on the one hand, since 1) I’ve been cutting my blogging teeth this past year and a half helping Eric Milton out with his blog, Wealthy Joe Investing and 2) I’ve developed an intimate, dynamic relationship with my own personal finances over the past year and a half, the likes of which I’ve never experienced before.
On the other hand, I’ve been hesitant to position myself in the personal finance space, as I’ve a long way to go. I’m hardly a paragon of what I’d want anyone else to view as a goal.
In any event, tonight I’m going to link here to a few guest posts I wrote a year and a half ago on Wealthy Joe. Each one reflects the growth and development of my relationship with money.
Some of you may feel like money shouldn’t matter so much. I used to feel that way too. But the fact is that it does. Unless we have a pension or are independently wealthy due to an inheritance or something, Generation X is going to experience poverty the likes of which many of us have never seen if we haven’t taken responsibility for building our own wealth.
I’m going to post on this more in days, weeks and months to come. For now, here are the posts I wrote on Wealthy Joe:
- My post on my initiation into investing
- My follow-up post nearly a year later on how it was going
- My post on the bucket method I developed for allocating every scrap of money I receive
Let me know your thoughts on these! I would like this blog to become a lively, interactive space.
