A blog? we don't need no stinking blog!

Well, the email-sent post did post well. Plus it didn't take too long.
Honestly i've read a lot of blogs but this is the first time i'm writing one so if you can give me some pointers on how to improve stuff around here I would certainly appreciate it.
How is it that a system's administrator doesn't have a blog? Well, first I didn't really "get" the idea behind blogs. It's like a diary but everyone reads it. Then I understood that it's stuff that you do want to share with other people..ahhh! Plus it's a hell of a lot easier than keeping your own website. I'm even emailing this post too!
Then I thought that I didn't have an interesting, uplifting subject to write about. Most of the time i'm thinking on how to pay the next bill and my long term goal of getting rid of my debt. But a fellow blogger encouraged me to write my own blog since I write so many comments on her blog.
Eventually I figured that even if no one reads my blog at least it will help me vent and be a diary for myself of how things go with this. I can't say i'm sorry about writing of my misery because I think that those who are in the same situation might feel some comfort in knowing they are not alone. I know that I did, I even got some good tips on how to improve things even if just temporarily.
So today I finally bit the bullet and created my blog.
And now I have to get back to work. There are some things that need to be handled.
I hope to hear from all of you...maybe I will when I post some more intersting stuff.

I think it is a great idea to use the blog as a sort of diary/plan to deal with your debts. Sometimes just writing everything out helps to make it clearer what you need to do. Also, it will help you to see "where you were" and "where you are now", and hopefully that will encourage you to keep going.

You are off to a great start -- I've read everything through July 10th -- and I think your blog could be very helpful to others. Credit cards in this country are a very dangerous thing unless you can pay the balance off every month!

Thank you for your words.

I do think it will be a good way to keep track of how i'm doing with my debt.

I do agree that credit cards are dangerous. It's like getting a loan from the mob, except the mob stops when they break your legs.
