Setting up this blog has taken me well out of my comfort zone. I’ve had to get over the fear of writing for anyone to see and comment on. I wanted to set up a free standing blog, and this has meant working out ways of doing things I see happen on other blogs for myself. I’m not a computer scientist, and I struggle to understand the terminology. I nearly gave up a week or two ago, frustrated with my own lack of understanding about how to put a blog together from scratch. In the end I tried a few different things and got through that problem, but there are more technical challenges to come.
The big thing that has come through my battle with the blog is that you have to try different things to see what works. I’ve realised over this weekend that perhaps I need to apply this lesson to our finances and try out a few different things to see if I can get a better grip on them. We’re both lucky to be in work, but the money isn’t going as far as it used to, so we need to look at how we can control our expenditure. I’ve come up with some new ideas, and I’ll be writing about these tomorrow.
Until next time, Tawney.
