A Week’s Worth of Things I Love But Shouldn’t

by Kevin on June 15, 2009

This week is going to be a bit different on the blog. Normally I would be telling you how to create a CD ladder or how to pay off your credit card debt.

But I need to mix it up a bit. Writing day in and day out on credit card debt can be… tedious to say the least. (Just stop using it and pay it off folks, seriously!)

This week I’m going to try and share a little bit more about myself through posts and stories about things that I love that I know I shouldn’t. Essentially I will be confessing my financial sins to all of you readers.

The Purpose of Sharing Things I Love But Shouldn’t

As the week unfolds I hope the following things will become apparent:

Readers Will Get to Know Me Better

Getting to know what makes one of your favorite personal finance blogger tick is always a good thing. It helps identify the perspective that I come from when I write.

A Reminder to Not Forget to Live Life

This is a growing issue of concern with me. I plan to write on this more in the future — yes, getting your finances in order is a very high concern. But we can’t realistically live like hermits forever.

Readers Will Understand I’m Human

It’s shocking, I know. But just like other personal finance bloggers have shared their stories of getting into credit card debt — and turning it around — I hope this will help you connect with me and my blog better. I’m human, there are things that I want to do but I don’t have enough money to do them — just like everyone else.

A Discussion Around What You Love Will Begin

I’m very interested to hear what others have to say about their hobbies, passions, or just general interests that they know is costing them money.

In other words I know I’m not alone.

The first article in the series will go up tomorrow, and it has to do with cars. Stay tuned.
