Using the title of an album by one of my favourite bands, Rheostatics, bid you a good day, and welcome you to my new blog. Its title is real.clear.cool – and it marks a new direction in my brief blogging career. In my previous effort, Empty Pockets, the focus of the blog was documenting my personal finance journey from debt to freedom. (By the way, that struggle is ongoing!)
My new blog is going to be more far-reaching. I wanted to branch out, and write about some of my many interests, not just finance. So with this in mind, I decided to branch out and launch a new blog. With new beginnings in mind, I decided to get a professional to design it, and I think she did a great job! Her name is Melissa, and her website is called Cherry on Top Blog Design if you want see some of her other work.
I will continue to search out freebies, interesting contests, and bargains. The ongoing evolution of my financial journey will also be documented; it is still rough going, and there is still much more to accomplish until I can declare myself “debt free”.
Another interest of mine is reviewing products and services. I will be giving you my honest opinions about new products and services that may be of interest to you. Some of these may be sponsored (in which case I will tell you) and others will definitely be independent. In either case, you’ll get my real opinions, regardless of whether I purchased the item or not.
In the next little while, I’ll be conducting contests and giveaways. I personally LOVE contests, and relish the idea of offering my readers the opportunity to win some great swag!
So, WELCOME, and STOP BY SOON! Thanks for checking out real.clear.cool!
