October 1 Check In

It’s the beginning of the month and you know what that means? Free ice cream! No, no silly.  It’s time to check out my finances, see how I much money I made online and basically for me over share about my month until you fall asleep.

I’m busy writing this post on the bus this month because I promise you that I cannot find the time to do it at home anymore.  I don’t know where the time goes, but I suspect that it has to do with that big block of time that I waste at this thing called work every day.  Yes, I’m disgruntled, but I’m working on it.  On to finances.

For those of you who might be new to the blog, I share this information with you every single month.  The entire purpose of this blog as the tag line says is to “dig my way out of some serious debt”.  I believe in being an open book because, honestly, we are so secretive about money…unless you’re a nouveau riche rapper with lots of bling-bling.  We’re even more secretive about debt and it doesn’t have to be that way.  That and I’m secretly an exhibitionist at heart.  There’s nothing more nekkid than laying your debt out for the world to see and comment on, I guess.

So, let’s get nekkid! […]
