It’s common knowledge that in social situations, we all ought to avoid talking about politics, religion and money. So here I am wondering: does that same rule apply to blogging?
Last week, I shared a crazy experiment I tried with my cell phone and it seemed to strike a chord. We are a generation enamored with feeling connected, so purposefully disconnecting felt radical, and radically freeing. So, maybe I should also share my next experiment. Maybe it will strike chord again.
When Patrick and I got married, we decided off the bat to use mint.com. It’s a great resource that tracks your spending and shows you (with cool info graphic-type stuff) how and where you’re spending your money. But every few months, when we’d get together and talk about it — I would get overwhelmed with guilt over what I’d spent here and there, and I’d feel powerless to change any of it, since we were just looking over what we’d already spent, and not what we were planning on spending. It wasn’t working.
This month, we’re trying something new.
