Tell us about your blog.
My blog is called Sawyerrs’ House Money Lifestyle. It provides financial education and literacy to young adults and adults through everyday simple tips and tricks which I have tried and tested. It also helps educate parents so that they in turn can educate their kids about money.
Why do you write about money?
I write about money for 4 main reasons. First, I grew up with very limited financial education. Second, I am a decision in my early 20s to rub shoulders with people who I could learn good financial behaviour from. Third, my 10-year marriage fell apart due to financial problems which resulted in domestic violence. Fourth, I came across so many families who experienced financial difficulties and lacked good financial behaviour when I worked in the public sector as a housing staff for 20 years.
How did you start blogging?
What’s your most popular post and why?
What’s your favourite post you’ve written, and why?
It has to be 52-week Saving Challenge. It was a blogpost that I had written for another site which took about one year to be released. It also had contributions from other money bloggers. It’s my favourite because not only was I a contributor to the final work, I also learnt some handy tips and tricks from my fellow money bloggers.
