My Odyssey March 6, 2007Posted by pf in Introduction.
1) A long series of wanderings or adventures, esp. when filled with notable experiences, hardships, etc.
2) An intellectual or spiritual quest: an odyssey of discovery
I think the term “odyssey” does a pretty good job at capturing what I’m going through as I work towards achieving financial independence for me and my family. My intended purpose for this blog is to use it as a means to become better organized about our finances and optimize the use of the money we have.
Although I wouldn’t consider myself a “noob” in the area of personal finance, I certainly don’t have all the answers and am hopeful that through exchanges with others, we will mutually benefit.
How this all came about is pretty simple. I have a natural interest toward personal finance and came across an article about personal finance blogs in one of the magazines I subscribe to (forget which). I read a few of the ones they highlighted and was “hooked”. In particular, I liked the discipline that it demanded in terms of monitoring your finances…and thus I thought to try it out.
