Hi, I’m Emily from JohnJaneDoe.com. I’ve been blogging for a couple of years now with my husband Jon, in Raleigh, NC. We’ve finally been able to articulate our blog focus as “frugal living and investing,” which are the two pillars of our finances.
Jon mostly writes about DIY type stuff and has a passion for cutting our energy bill as much as possible. He mostly handles our rentals and leaves paperwork to me. I tend to write more about trying to be frugal (and not always succeeding) as well as more of the investing posts. Two households combining plus downsizing relatives mean we also have a continuous decluttering project going on.
Anyway, Jon and I consider ourselves semi-retired. We have rental properties and investments and I prepare taxes in the winter. That gives us plenty of time to play and raise our seven-year-old daughter, Little Bit, along with blogging and a little volunteer work. Jon’s in his fifties and I’ll join him this fall.
I vowed to make it over for almost a year. This week I finally put it on the to-do list so I’d remember to do it Glad I’ve finally made it over.
