FIRE Blogs that have work stories
« on: September 28, 2017, 04:44:39 PM »
I really enjoy hearing in-depth stories about what drove people to FiRE, and just other stories about how crazy work environments can be.  I especially liked the stories in the “The Job Experience”  section of  I’ve been on a few other retirement sites and have yet to find something similar to If any of you know of another site you’d like to share with me, I would greatly appreciate it!

I really like that section of Living a FI too - it's got this wonderful raw truth to it. I'm amazed he was able to remember so many little details from so long ago.

I personally don't post work stories on my blog, and my reasons are probably similar to a lot of people's - I'm not retired yet, don't want to burn bridges just yet, and a lot of my memories of the specifics have faded over time.

But posting to follow, because I love reading other people's shitty work stories.

I have a job section on my blog. It's not nearly as verbose as livingafi's stories but there are some doosies in there. I wrote them mainly so I'll have a record of what I went through, since I tend to forget the details of that kind of stuff over time.

Posting to follow.  And to push myself to write up some of these stories for my blog - I've outlined some and need to finish writing them.  I'm also going to check out the forum you mention.
