Hello, actyourwagers! I'm jame, your friendly mod. Sorry I've been so absent of late, my life kind of exploded a couple of months ago and it took me a while to adjust.

Just a quick modly note before I ramble on: it's great to see so many new people here! There are a couple of people who I haven't approved yet, largely because their journals have no userinfor/public posts, and haven't got an approved email so I can't send them a message. If I haven't approved your membership yet, could you please comment to this post stating you've read the rules (check the comm userinfo) and you'll abide by them? Thanks.

Cut for rambling about the next steps on my financial journey )

Hey there! I've got a few people in the queue for comm membership who for various reasons haven't given me a statement of "I have read the comm rules and will abide by them" I understand that people have differing levels of time/access to the internet but if you've applied for membership and it hasn't been approved, if you could please just comment to this post with the necessary statement! Thank you.

In addition to that, I would like suggestions on possible posts or challenges or what to do with the community next. Anon commenting is turned on (will be turned off after this entry has been up for a day or two) so if you have any feedback or suggestions, that would be great!

As my internet is unreliable (... seriously, don't get me started on the anti-competitive practices of monopolies without effective government control that conspire to deny me broadband internet) I haz a co-mod!

Everyone say hi to [personal profile] lisabounce. Lisa is a student and as such knows what it is to live frugally. She says "I took a look at the real world and retreated to university as fast as I could." She's a tiny bit less obsessive (read, a lot) than me and so may combine to provide a balanced viewpoint. She actually saves up for stuff and takes holidays and all!

Also, I know where she lives.

Anyrate, at times where my internet conspires to deny me the joy of your company, [personal profile] lisabounce is here for all your modding needs! You can contact her on lisabounce at gmail dot com . If you need to, you can also contact me at jamethiel dot bane at gmail dot com

Needless to say, if you have an issue with this community, we'd love to hear from you and we'll do our level best to help you.

As an update and in the interests of complete honesty, I completely failed the "eat at home" challenge today. I bought both hot cross buns and lunch. I have a server migration, I'm stressed!

If you don't, I can't contact you and your membership will not be approved.

And I want people to join the community! This comm is awesome!

Hi there! We've had a whole heap of new members come along. Welcome!

I've had some privacy concerns raised. From now on, membership is on moderated status. Also, please make any posts with personal financial details f-locked (I won't force you to, but some community members can't participate without that. Something to keep in mind. I won't be posting f-locked as there has to be something for folks who are just watching the community to read.)

Please let me know if you have any other suggestions for the improvement of the community!

Upcoming attractions:
A challenge a month. The first challenge? Cook dinner (or don't have take-away) every night for a month.

Also, I'm going to do another goal post.

Hi there,

I've changed the community rules somewhat to tighten things up bit. Check them out!

If you've got any suggestions to make for future posts, etc, I would love to read them!

Are you sure that you will never, EVER be able to save anything? Do your debts inspire you to hyperventilate and you don't know where to begin?

That's what this community is for.

We aim to provide a non-judgmental and nurturing environment so that you can face your financial demons and start getting your shit together. None of us are financial professionals. We're ordinary folk from all walks of life with a range of incomes and circumstances. We're here to provide advice and handy hints. So, WELCOME. This is the first ever post. Post in the comments! Introduce yourself, tell us your best and worst financial habits, what kind of post you'd like to see in this community. Say hi to others!

As a note: I can't crosspost to the LJ community of the same name automatically, but I'll do it manually. All posts will be mirrored both here and there from now on.
