When I started this blog on January 4, 2011, I thought I would blog about creating financial models, programming in Microsoft Access, and Accounting. Eight months later, my blog is not as focused as would like it to. I like to develop financial applications and tools while using accounting guidelines but I also like so many other things. Right now, as you can obviously tell, I am very much interested in learning about personal savings with the aim of having a comfortable retirement. Blogging is a great way to cement what I read and put it in practice. It is easy to just read about putting $50 more in your savings. It is a lot more difficult to write about it. Once it is in writing, however, it is a commitment. It is harder to back out of a committment. Writing (or blogging) has that effect.
I am not sure where this blog is taking me but I am excited to let it roll. The Director of Employee Benefits at work recently told me, “your blog created a [positive] stir”. 🙂 I was not looking to stir anything but I like it.
