While I was browsing my recent posts, it dawned on me that I will write about anything. There are the classic updates on published goals, a post about retirement, and even yesterday’s puke pics of pet sitting. There also seems to be similar numbers of comments on each post. So, my question is, why do you tune in to BFS?
Why I Write
In the meantime, I was asked recently once again about why I started this blog. If you weren’t around in 2010, here’s what happened:
Two main things ended up driving me to jump into blogging. First, FMF at Free Money Finance enjoyed my comments on his site and pushed me to start my own. It’s hard to ignore someone you respect. I was flattered and motivated.
Secondly, commenters on a post on Get Rich Slowly ticked me off by attacking someone’s money choices. The guest poster on this specific day had sold a business for a million bucks, and she spent some of that on luxuries like hiring a housekeeper. Some commenters got ugly about outsourcing when you don’t physically have to. I highly believe that there is no one right answer for everybody when it comes to money, so I wanted to voice that opinion on my own site.
You can save for your future and spend on the fun stuff in life at the same time. I wanted to prove it by writing out my story at the time. Over the last 5 years, that story has had some extreme twists and turns, but that ideal is still the main reason that I write.
Why Do You Read?
Do you like my financial musings, pet sitting updates, posts about goals, or my general life ramblings? I figured if I asked, I’d know what to write about a little more often.
