I've been thinking about helping people with their budget for years. My initial idea was to make an app, as I have a background in software engineering. Hopefully that will happen some day, but with my current time availability it won't happen anytime soon. But, my drive to help people become better financially still exists. I’ve talked with friends about finances and gave advice from time to time, but it just didn't fulfill that inner itch I had to help.
I sat at work one day trying to brainstorm ways I could help people with their budgets. I never really considered a blog, but I got to thinking about it. Something that often holds people back from doing something like a blog or YouTube channel is that they don't feel fully confident with what they're talking about. This is different for me. I could share it with anyone I came into contact with and not even give it another thought. I'm excited to share it with family and friends too. I thought this was huge, because for most people this was a hurdle they had to overcome and I'm already on the other side of it.
Another reason I think that this blog is going to be great is that I can write about finances every day of the week, regardless of who's reading it. I do care about the readers, but my point being is that I could write about finances even if I didn't have one single reader. I think this is important because it will drive me through the times where I don't have any readers and the blog is growing. I'm a big believer in letting things grow and not forcing it in one direction or another. That's what I plan to do with this blog.
I want this blog to help you become better with a budget, or more broadly, your personal finances. As often as I can post, I will write about the latest topics in personal finances. I'll help you create your budget, manage your budget, and grow your budget. I'll help you learn about new money topics, like calculating your net worth or starting some simple investing. It will be a blog that you love to read and I'll make sure to always be considerate of your time. This is a better budget blog for you.
So what can you do today? There are two things...
