Hello from My Money Supply


#1

Hi everyone! I’m blogging as Ms. Money Supply over at mymoneysupply.com. I’ve been reading personal finance blogs for about a year and finally got the courage to start one of my own.

I’m in my early thirties and I’m really just beginning my path to financial independence. I spent my twenties working seasonally in national parks and resorts. It was an incredible experience, but I didn’t save a whole lot, and I didn’t know much about investing.

About a year ago, I gave up my vagabond lifestyle for what my dad calls a “real” job with a 401k and health insurance, which I’m hoping will lead to financial independence in ten years.

I’m really excited to be a part of the Rockstar community. I’ve learned so much from you all already, and I’m looking forward to connecting!

Welcome to the forum. It is a great place to hang around.

Good luck on reaching your goal in 10 years. I look forward to reading about your progress.

I also like your Gravatar.

Thank you! I took the picture from my Gravatar in Grand Teton National Park - I’m a bit of a national park nerd. :slight_smile:


#4

Welcome! Ten years is a great goal. You’re in the right place to discuss finances and blogging.


#5

Thanks Mrs. Groovy! I’m glad to be here!

I’m interested to hear more about that vagabond lifestyle. That is what I want to do when I reach financial independence (or something thereabouts) at the end of next year. Welcome to the forum.

Thank you! I definitely have some stories to tell. I’m sure you’ll end up with even more if you do it while financially independent - sounds like a dream come true. :slight_smile:

That makes two of us, MyMoney!! I worked in Yellowstone and Glacier Bay NP (Alaska) during summers in college - great experiences, worth more than money! (Gasp!). Welcome to the nuthouse!

Welcome

Thanks BudgetKitty! I had to go a bit further for that one - it is in Tongariro National Park in New Zealand. There’s a hike there called the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, which is beautiful but looooong.

That’s awesome RetirementManifesto! I love Yellowstone, but haven’t made it to Glacier Bay yet. It’s on my list - I’ve only heard good things!
