So, I’m just going to come out and say it.
I’m not a “mom blogger”. I tried really hard to fit that mold, but it’s not my gig.
I am, however, a mom who is going to attempt to blog about personal finance with the perspective that only a single parent can bring to the table.
A few things this site won’t do for you:
- Teach you how to use coupons – I don’t use them. I’ve tried a few times and it doesn’t really do a whole lot for my grocery bill total. We’ll talk more about this…
- Give you expert banking/investing advice – well, any investing advice really. Many of us are still learning and mastering the basics. Once we get those, we can move on to the investing.
- Make you feel inadequate – That’s right. This isn’t a platform for me to brag about my net worth, my job, my possessions, my latest travel adventure, etc. I occasionally read some personal finance blogs that, while a great example that you can change your situation, really aren’t relevant for the person who is just diving in.
Ok, so now what it will do (hopefully):
- Make you think – about what you want out of life and how to get there.
- Give you some comic relief – or at the very least that feeling of “wow, I’m so glad I didn’t do that“.
- Teach me something new – every reader can offer something of themselves (and I hope all of you will in the comments!)…just because you think your viewpoint may not be an amazing observation doesn’t mean that it won’t help someone out there.
I have a vision of what I would love this site to be, and I do hope that any of you reading will jump in and help me start a dialogue for/with the other single parents out there.
Somedays, it’s just a tough place to be. But we’ll get through it!
And now, since I didn’t sleep hardly at all last night I will take my leave and go make up for it tonight.
Have a fabulous night, and I’ll catch you on the flip side.
