Hi there, and welcome to FIRE for One!

I’ve been tossing up the idea of blogging my FIRE journey, not least because, as someone who’s only come into contact with the concept quite recently and is really behind the eight ball in terms of available time, I’m not even sure that the RE part of FIRE is going to be achievable for me. That said, I think the FI part should be, and that’s where my focus is for the moment.

However, after reading this post at Australian Dividend Investor I thought, what the hey, it will serve a couple of purposes for me: a way of keeping a record of my thoughts and experiences around changing my financial future; and also a way of keeping myself accountable. And as a side bonus, I’m hoping it will help build my web development skills a bit – I’ve dabbled in the past, but not put much time into it. So you may see the site design change over time. 🙂

As the blog name indicates, I’m interested in how the FIRE journey will pan out for a single person. So far most of the bloggers I’ve discovered are coupled or have a family, so I thought a single perspective might be interesting for others out there in similar circumstances.
