It’s been 11 years since I started Making Sense of Cents, and I am still completely amazed that this is what I get to do for a living!
In August of 2011, when I opened my laptop and started this blog, I had no idea what I was doing. I didn’t even know that blogs could make money.
This blog started as a hobby because I enjoyed reading other personal finance blogs and figured why not start my own.
11 years ago, I had no real dreams or goals for my blog. I was completely anonymous – I wrote with a fake name, and I didn’t even tell my friends or family about my blog.
For the entire first year of blogging, only Wes and my sister knew what I was doing.
