Hey guys! I’m My Early Retirement Journey from the great state of NC. I am openly Christian and hesitantly immigranty! I heard of these forums through frugalgene and I’m really excited to be here! Also - I love a great sentence starter… so I used the one provided by the forum It’s also a reason I started my blog http://myearlyretirementjourney.com/. Check it out…it’s like a sentence starter for personal finance!
What’s my blog about?
Well… I want to retire early. I just started my journey in Dec 2017 and one month in I started to lose interest. I am hoping this blog will help keep me motivated and accountable…I keep thinking this might be a little easier with a few people along this journey with me.
What else do you want to know?
Well, it all started after one especially “I want to retire today” day at work wherein I stumbled upon FIRE. As with most Google searches I got lost for a bit in the early retirement rabbit hole. When I finally emerged, I realized, hey this might be possible. And hey, all these early retirees are men with wives and families. I’m neither of those things. I wonder if there are single women like me trying to leave the workforce. If so, maybe I can create a space for them on the internet too. And so began myearlyretirementjourney.com
Forum conversation starters:
1, For those bloggers out there, when and/or what was your turning point from a personal blog to an income stream?
2, For funzies, if anyone in this finance blogosphere still has cable or eats out or remembers when they did… what was your favorite tv and take-out combo? My old fave was spicy drunken noodle with shrimp and Mindy Project +/- a fizzy soft drink I may or may not have had this in the last week or so…
