My dear readers,
I am re-focusing this blog to document my journey in saving for a down payment in the expensive California real estate market. As such, this blog will be renamed to be, appropriately enough, Well-Heeled: California Dreamin’. This is me dreaming (and making that dream come true) of a down payment so that I can buy my very own piece of California.
Most of my previous posts will be pulled off to make for a fresh start…. BUT – with this development comes a silver lining. Now that my blog is focused more on saving for a down payment instead of the broader scope of topics I wrote on before, I can give a bit more personal information to my blog readers… for one, I live in California. (As evidenced by the title. You’re not surprised, are you?)
Due to some recent developments, I feel it is safer and more appropriate to re-focus my blog in this way so that I protect myself and my employer. So… the change of direction.
I hope you will all bear with me during this transition and that you’ll still stick around. I’ll still have my net worth updates and my goal bars for emergency fund, retirement, and down payment. 🙂
My goal is to save $50,000 by the end of December 31, 2009.
