I’m at six months today!
A couple of weeks after I started, I made a guest post on Girl Meets Debt, one of the first PF blogs I found. That was when the first people who weren’t me read the blog 🙂 Maybe I’ll celebrate six months by finally getting a twitter account and trying to raise my profile slightly? But I really am grateful for everyone who has been reading and keeping me on track. It is way more fun to think about this out loud with an audience!
I’ve made a lot of financial progress since I started the blog. My retirement account has grown and my debt has dropped. I’ve gone from negative net worth to a number that is steadily climbing towards 5 digits, even with my various small missteps (still too many coffee purchases) and murphy-ish events (I need a new car battery.) But more than just the progress by the numbers, I feel like I’ve gotten a much greater sense of control and planning out of this, and that’s been really important to me.
So, thanks again, everyone who is reading this, and also thanks to everyone who blogs themselves — you all make me feel like I’ve got companions on the journey.
