Jon’s Blog

Welcome to Jon’s Blog. (Live studio audience applause)

I’m a complete fool when it comes to finance, and this blog is the record of my attempts to remedy that, with the help of WellSpent.

I will become the living proof that even a half-hipster creative-writing major can throw off the shackles of ignorance, and put on the sweet leather jacket of Personal Finance awesomeness.

I’ll be reading WellSpent’s series of articles carefully, responding to them and enacting their advice to the best of my ability. Then I’ll report back with relatively coherent rants and raves that will give you a dude’s-eye-view of the entire personal finance journey.

If I can do it, you can do it. I got 19% for Grade 11 Maths for pity’s sake.

I think Personal Finance websites are mostly boring, so I try not to be. My blogs will be word-rodeos, out-of-control grammarcoasters with no brakes and no logical safety-restraining bar. I hope you enjoy the ride.

Jon.
