For the last 3 months or so, I’ve spent hours in front of a computer screen reading PF (personal finance) blog after PF blog, following PF bloggers on Twitter, and as you can see, writing my own PF related blog posts. But I think my little PF crush is over…
That’s not to say PF and I won’t still be friends. My Twitter and RSS feeds will both still be dominated by PF bloggers. I will still do my monthly recaps (which I know some of you don’t care about, but it’s helping to keep me accountable). I will, however, no longer be trying to break into the PF Blogging World.
I’m not even sure why I was trying (if I was trying?) in the first place. I don’t have any new, brilliant insights into finance. I have two bank accounts, a TFSA, and zero investments. I haven’t taken so much as a math class since grade 11 (which was, er, geez… 13 years ago?). I don’t want to “compete” with the bloggers that have been on my radar – I want to learn from them. And I have – to the point where I think I need to stop consuming so much of it and focus on something else. At the moment, that’s finding a new job.
My personal finance situation is still not great. (Student loan debt the size of a mortgage, a low-paying dead-end job, a negative net worth, practically living pay-cheque to pay-cheque, etc.) But, I’m so much better off before this little PF crush of mine began. Maybe if/when my financial situation changes I’ll start crushing again, but I’m sorry, PF. Based on
psychologists this internet meme, it just wasn’t meant to be.
