Dear Blog Reader,
Welcome to Salmon Spectacles! When I told my husband I wanted to start a blog chronicling our debt journey, he was literally at a loss for words (A first for him, I guarantee you!). And, while he is normally super, mega supportive, he hasn’t seen my vision yet.
All in due time, right?
The things you read in this blog are raw and as real as it gets. I will be sharing many things with you that make me cringe, including our debt total, and the years of stupid financial decisions that lead up to that massive number. And while I’m pretty sure we’re not the only ones to make poor financial decisions, most people don’t talk about them. I certainly don’t blame them. It’s uncomfortable and scary to open yourself up to potential criticism!
So, why the heck would I put myself out here like this? I have several reasons:
Accountability – I LOVE having an accountability partner to help keep me motivated and on the right path! I had the most bomb-tastic workout buddy for years. Having her in my corner helped me reach my fitness goals. So, what better way to reach my financial goals than to have you, dear reader, in my corner.
Documentation – A blog is a great way to document this process for myself. I can’t wait to look back on these first posts and see how far we’ve come. It is like a world-wide journal.
Side Hustle – I’m hoping to create some extra income through this site to apply directly to our debt. You can help by subscribing to receive my emails and updates, and occasionally checking out some sweet products that I may recommend. You’re awesomeness is truly appreciated.
So, thank you. Thank you for being here. Thank you for reading and coming along for the ride!
