Just over a year ago, during #reverb10, I decided - OK, fine, was slapped upside the head with the fact - I needed to get out of debt.
I set a plan for myself to do just that.
Subsequently, as part of step 1 - accountability - I started a new blog, Jane In Her Infinite Budget. It was my intention to write blog entries often about my successes, trials, and tribulations with money, debt reduction, and everything else associated with money.
I was gung ho about it too...for about 3 weeks.
Then life happened and keeping up with two blogs seemed like a monumental task when I had LIFE to contend with...so I neglected it.
That's the bad news.
The good news is that, even though I neglected the blog, I sincerely did focus on debt-reduction for most of 2011. And I made tremendous (in my mind) progress.
The other day, I received notice that my domain name, www.janesinfinitebudget.com, was set to expire. And then, I was Facebook friended, through an extraordinary turn of events, by Dianne Juhl, the feminine face behind The Feminine Face of Money.
Coincidence? I think not.
So I resolved myself to getting back to that accountable space I'd carved out for myself by regularly posting there in 2012.
Thus, last night and tonight - yes, it took me two nights - I worked on an entry to post to that vulnerable, crazy space where I let my finances all hang out for everyone to judge and, perhaps, with which to identify.
If you're interested, that entry is here.
Don't twiddle me there. My finances and my financial vulnerability are off limits to twiddling. If you want to criticize or be nasty, do it here on this post.
However, if you really want to know about Jane and her Infinite Budget Wisdom - tongue most decidedly in cheek - click through and read. I'm pretty brutal with myself...at the same time I'm proud of myself.
