Don’t be an A$$hole.
– I started my personal finance blog to document my own financial journey and empower others to take control of their money. If I’m doing anything else outside of empowering others and documenting my journey, I’ve fallen off course.
– I am interested in writing positively and encouraging others to learn – I’m not talking about “dance in the rain” quotes, I just want to avoid being a jerk.
– My blog is for readers – not just other personal finance bloggers. While I appreciate and welcome comments from one and all, if my comment section is limited only to other bloggers agreeing with everything I say, then it’s not a conversation and I’m not doing my job.
– While I am opinionated, I will not make my point by ridiculing others. If I can’t state my case without making other people feel crappy about themselves, then I need therapy – not a blog.
– I like differences and welcome other people’s opinions. If you, dear reader, are struggling with your finances or are celebrating a money success – I hope you feel comfortable enough to write in and tell me. I’d love to hear from you.
– If you are convinced that you’ve never made a financial mistake in your life, this is not the place for you. While I enjoy being right at times, I don’t need to devote a website to it.
– I expect that readers commenting will show the same respect and consideration for people’s personal differences that I wish to practice, I will edit comments accordingly. I’m not talking about being politically correct – ‘cause I’m really not – just reasonable and respectful.
– If you’re concerned or have a question about this, drop me a line at lindsey.thurston[a]gmaildot]com. I’ll be happy to talk more.
Enjoy your visit!
