Hello, everybody! I’m Joe from southwestern Ohio - the Dayton, Ohio area near WPAFB. It’s an interesting area due to the base and Wright State University next door to the base, making it a odd combination of low-cost-of-living with higher-income potential. The culture mix is diverse, too, with people from all over the country via the Air Force and all over the world via the school living in the area.
I found these forums through searching for new blogs to follow. I followed Rockstar Finace via an RSS feed in Feedly, but was confused for a bit as to why the blogs in my feed weren’t on this site, but rather other people’s blogs. Once I figured it out, I decided to join.
I have two blogs - a general blog at http://hendrixjoseph.github.io/ which I’ll blog about anything that interests me, including personal finance and FI - and http://www.puppy-snuggles.com/ which I talk about dogs. Because dogs are awesome.
I’ve actually been playing with websites via sites like Geocities since the 90s (my teenage years) and blogging for maybe a decade. My current blog is two or three years old, and my dog blog is maybe a year old. One of the reasons I blog is to develop my writing and web design skills (or is that two reasons?).
Glad to be here!
