A recent article in Ars Technica stated that Technorati has tracked 133 million blogs since 2002. Consider this blog number 133,000,001.
So what if I am five years or so late getting onto the blogging bandwagon? Better late than never, right?
I mean, really. Will anyone be interested in what I have to say? Only time will tell.
My primary intent in starting this blog is to help those who wish to better manage their personal finances and achieve financial freedom. That and the fact that I needed to pick up a new hobby to keep me busy after spending the last two years of my life as a Little League President!
Over the coming weeks and months, I intend to share the tips I have used over the past twenty years to successfully manage my household budget and home financial plan in order to maintain my financial freedom.
I am an electrical engineer who works in the aerospace industry, so trust me when I say that managing your home finances is not rocket science. I intend to slowly and methodically prove that to you over time. I hope you’ll enjoy reading what I have to say as much as I know I’ll enjoy sharing what I know with you.
For now, I just wanted to get this first post under my belt.
Your kick-off post looked lonely without a comment. Thought I’d drop by and leave it one. My, how things have changed in 2+ years, eh?

Hey, thanks for the comment on this lonely article, Wojo! Better late than never… LOL
Seriously though, it’s been quite a journey so far — I know I really had no idea what I was getting into when I started this! (I’m sure it was the same for you too.)
Hi Len, I read your blog, all the way to the end…which is where I learned that you are an aerospace engineer. My son would like to follow in my father’s footsteps, who was also an aerospace engineer. His specialty was hydraulics. My father died when I was a teenager, and I miss him every day. I wish he was here to mentor my son, who is currently a high school junior. Thanks for all you do to share wisdom and common sense with us! Barbara

Hey, that is a lot of reading, Barbara! That your son has already decided to become an engineer is half the battle — most kids tend to shy away from such academically challenging fields in favor of something easier.
Make sure you impress upon your son that although it’s going to be a tough slog in college, all the hard work will pay off after he graduates!
