First and foremost I want to thank all of you who have been checking back to see if I have written a new blog post. I’ve been uninspired. Very uninspired. I don’t know why, but my new inspiration came through one of my other blogging gigs. Many of you know that I blog for BookEndBabes once a month. My new-found spirit to write is a result of my BookEndBabes post.
I feel like this is another new beginning for me. It’s not often that I feel like I can relate to someone, but Ms. McNeal’s journey touched me in a way I have never felt before. I didn’t feel so alone in my writing journey. Now I am a girl with a plan and a new mentor.
I didn’t decided to be a writer for the money. None of us did. We do it because we love it. To survive, many of us used our charge cards for what we though were necessary things at the time, but in retrospect was not a good idea. (I really didn’t need those shoes…) I include myself in this category. I knew it was an issue, but McNeal brought to light that I can get out of debt by doing things that I love.
Starting next month, I’m going to be a Frugalista. And I’ll be sure to share with you all of my freelance gigs and ways I am expanding my professional growth. I don’t know what is in store for me, but I feel like some good things will be coming my way.
Be sure to check out The Frugalista herself. I hope you are inspired too.
