Well, the name is more of a joke than anything. I’ve always been the “dirty hippie” to my friends. I tend to wear the same jeans for a few days, walk around barefoot, and reuse/recycle about anything I can get my hands on. I’m way worse than they think, but we’ll see if I ever get that far on this blog. The other part comes from my interests. I love money, nothing holds my attention like a conversation about money and finance! There will be plenty of other things in this blog, but these two thing will probably make up the most of it.
A third main topic this blog will have is travel. Specifically about budget travel, travel hacking, and volunteer travel. I absolutely plan on seeing the world. At the start of this blog, I had no stamps in my passport, and I plan on changing that as soon as I can.
I’ve always been attracted to the blogging world because I like to write, and never really had an outlet for it. I figure if I put my random ideas out there, there’s bound to be someone that has something interesting to share, or just wants to chat! I love to learn new things, you’ll see a lot of my own learning on this blog, stuff I already know/think and want to share, as well as plenty of stuff that I have no idea about, and want to learn from all of you!
As a result, this blog is going to be a collection of things. Some of the things you’ll see pop up here include financial information, early retirement stuff, travel, environmentalism, green design, parenting, (I’m sure this list will get longer as time goes on). If this list sounds like you, feel free to read what you like!
This blog is as much about sharing my views and ideas as it is about finding advice from all of you out there!
Thanks, and feel free to comment or reach out if you need anything!
