I thought that it would a good idea to explain what I hope to achieve with this blog before I posted any more.
As a student I am constantly bombarded with temptations to spend my money,whether that is by advertisements or a friend asking me to go out for a drink. My general goal is to assist you to change your spending habits and better understand what is really worth spending money.
As for the blog, my intention is for it to be run as a sort of question and answer session. I am open to all comments and questions and I will get back to you as soon as I possibly can, as I believe that you as the reader are entitled to that sort of service. It is this aspect of my blog that I hope will set me apart from all the other commercialised money saving sites which spew the same generic content onto the internet. The irony is that on many occasions those websites do not exactly live by their ideals, so to speak, and are covered with ads and content inviting you to work hard to save money, only to spend it on their products etc.
This is not what I want this blog to be about. My aim is to run a free service providing useful information, and hopefully it will stay that way.
As a final note, if anyone has any tips themselves that they would like to share with everyone reading the blog, include them in your comments and I will try to mention them (and attribute them to you of course) in the next couple of posts that follow.
Another fairly lengthy post (sorry again everyone) but I felt I needed to clear this up.
