Hello everyone! I thought I would take a bit of a departure from my usual writing when putting this post together, as I realized that this would be the 500th post here at Squirrelers!
I started this blog back in 2010, and was really thinking at the time that it would be fun way do something I had some interest in: have a website. Beyond that, the appeal of starting a blog revolved around being able to have a platform by which I could share my thoughts on personal finance, which could potentially be interesting to some folks while also getting people think a bit more about their money. Additionally, it occurred to me that it might be an opportunity to learn more about personal finance along the way, and maybe even get to know and interact with other folks who have similar interests in the subject.
Well, it’s been more than I imagined it would be at the time. What started out as simply doing something new and different has turned into something I truly enjoy and am passionate about. Publishing 500 posts is probably some kind of evidence of that, and a cool milestone.
Anyway, I also think this is a great time to say thank you for being a part of this! I truly appreciate those of you who have been long-time readers, and of course I am excited to know that there are new readers stopping by as well. Without each of you, whether commenting or visiting, this wouldn’t have become what it is. It’s also been great learning from other personal finance bloggers who are totally passionate about the subject, and has been great to discover so many smart, really nice folks out there.
Along these lines, I’m interested in what you would like to see more of here on Squirrelers. What type of posts here interest you the most, and what other types of subjects would be nice to see discussed?
