Here is my conversation with my ten-year-old daughter last night.
Me: Guess what? I’m starting a blog.
Daughter: Blogs don’t exist anymore.
Me: What are you talking about? Of course blogs exist. I’m about to start writing one.
Daughter: Nobody reads them.
Me: I read blogs every day!
Daughter: Nobody under 40 reads blogs anymore.
Me: Perfect. Then my blog is just for people over 40.
Daughter: Perfect. [Turns to leave.]
Me: Would it be cooler if I did a podcast? A vlog?
Daughter: [shuts bedroom door]
Welcome to my blog! It is only for people over 40! If you are under 40 and accidently stumbled across this, be aware that you risk catching old-person disease!
Specifically, this blog will focus how to help adults save money. First and foremost, save on food. As time goes on, I am also eager to explore money-saving ideas for all life’s other expenses. Then, I want to write about how to supplement income with part time jobs. Finally, I am interested in how to make even small amounts of money grow through wise investments.
Why will I blog about saving money? They say “write what you know.”
