My Qualifications

Allow me to present my credentials:


This is my first diary.  Received Christmas day 1988.  I was 9.

I wrote in it nearly every day and when it filled up I started another one, and then another and another. these books are probably the most precious, incriminating things I own.

Of course the content was largely trivial, hormonal, bitchy, self pitying, repetitive and trite.  But some of it was quite good…

for example:

”Hi, I am writing this watching Missy our darling pussycat scramble under my dolls bed, she used to be able to jump around in it when she was little but now she’s a great big lout and can’t fit under it.  Charlotte’s going to have a haircut today – I haven’t seen it yet but I think it’s going to look PUKE!!”

”Me and Stef are having a tidy room contest – I bet I will win and take his 20 cents HAHA!’

Top shelf stuff right????

I wrote pretty much every day for 16 years, until I went to live in London and figured I couldn’t risk writing down anything that someone might read, and hold against me.

Now, at the queenly age of 35, I think – screw it. I’m allowed to write.

The great thing about a blog is that you don’t need permission from a boss or editor or anyone else..

The only qualification you need is that you like to go tap tap tap on your little typewriter.

Everything else is gravy.

    Haha…. love it. Refreshing take on money so far after poking around as well. And I should know, I scan/read over 150 articles on finance a day!

    Keep pouring your heart into it and having fun :)
