Choosing my Direction

I really don’t want to sound like I don’t have it all together or that I am indecisive. But in reality I am a little of both. As I was chatting with a good friend the other night we got on the subject of my site. She asked if I was unmotivated and not as “in to it” as I used to be. Which then got me to thinking is that what all my readers think?


I really hope not and I love my friend so much for bringing it up to me because I have been at a fork in the road with The Nifty Thrifty Lady. A fork labeled indecisive and busy, and another labeled to write or vlog.

This will be my 4th year running The Nifty Thrifty Lady and I still get humbled by where the journey has lead me. I have made new friends and feel that I am using my skill to help others which makes my heart happy. On the very flip side of that I also want to do more than teach. Sometimes I just want to share my experiences and chat about life in general. I don’t want to always write about finance because I am not 1 dimensional at all. Honestly, I bet you guys would like to know more about the person behind the blog too.

  • I am a very private person and so is my husband which is one reason I have not stepped into this realm of writing.
  • I am not sure my loyal readers would read about my everyday life, struggles, and personal stories.
  • I don’t want to be a lifestyle blogger. Personal Finance is my heart. I just have other things that would be nice to write about and share with you all.
  • My life is messy, busy, and a journey that seems to be ever evolving. Who wants to read that??

These are all of the reasons   excuses that I have been telling myself why not to embark on this journey. It has stopped me in my tracks with writing because I find myself lead to write about my personal experience’s lately not so much the normal.

Well after talking to my friend and making some lists of all the things I want to talk about other than finance I have decided to just do it. I will be writing or vlogging once a week about non-money stuff.
This may look like sharing my goals, a family vlog, my favorite things, and written piece about some of my personal struggles. My other favorite thing in the world FOOD! I am on a rare journey that many people do not get staying home with kids while they are young. I want to embrace that while I can! I also am on a journey of finding a home church and overall improving myself. I feel like just like money these are all things as women we need to talk about.
Choosing Family

I understand if you are only here for the money aspect of things and I truly hope you still stick around for them. But if you don’t want to that is okay as well, I definitely understand.

If you are really excited to read and hear about my journey please let me know what area’s you would like for me to chat about.
