Blogging: I made it to a year!
« on: June 16, 2018, 09:16:30 AM »
A bit of shameless self-promotion, but also posting because this community has been super inspiring for me!

But I've officially been blogging on personal finance for a year! I never thought I'd make it this far - honestly, I imagined I'd start writing and then within 3-4 months lose sight of it in the grand scheme of life, but still kicking!

So if you want to read me rant about starting out as a starving artist and then becoming a mildly functional 29 year-old professional office-person living in Toronto, give it a read!

Nice, looks like you've been posting about once a week, which is my frequency as well.

... why personal finance?  That seems like such a crammed-full field with a very limited amount to say.

More so just to keep me honest - how I've managed my money has always been something that's been important to me, especially when I started out making basically nothing working in the arts. I feel if I stop journalling, I would probably stop being my best frugal self!

Million dollar question- Are you making money blogging? or just doing it because.....

Doing it just because! If it happens to make money, great, but that's not the primary objective...
