Welcome Connie!

Posted By Jim On 08/26/2008 @ 12:07 pm In The Home | 3 Comments

Last week, I had the pleasure of introducing Gary Bonner [3], who will be giving his perspective on current personal finance issues, and this week I have the pleasure of introducing Connie Brooks. Connie is a personal finance blogger and author about to release her first book – How to Retire Comfortably and Happy on Less Money Than the Financial Experts Say You Need: Insider Secrets to Spending Less While Living More [4]. She regularly blogs at ThriftyMamas.com and recently started a family with the addition of a baby girl.

Much like how Gary will bring a different point of view, a more seasoned perspective on issues, I asked Connie to join us in order to tackle the issues my family hopes to take in the coming years: starting a family. Our friends recently had a baby girl as well and the whole experience, seen from the sidelines, seemed so complicated and … well, scary!

So, seeing as how I advocated planning for the future [5], why not begin the planning process by reading some articles from someone who just went through it? That’s where Connie steps in.

In the coming weeks, be on the lookout for articles discussing all the intricacies and particulars about starting a family from how to include a child in your future financial planning to the “real cost” of having a baby to discussions of baby food and disposable diapers. Everything dealing with starting a family is on the table and Connie has some phenomenal ideas on what to tackle (we have a list of nearly fifty topics and that’s just the beginning!).

We’ll be keeping the posting frequency at about one article every two weeks and I hope you all will get as much value out of this as I do! (if you want to see more, do let us know!)
