Wow, that was a fast year! I still remember suggesting to Mrs. Need2Save that we should start a FIRE related blog… and she should write most of the articles 🙂
We always had plans to retire early. However, our path down this FIRE journey really picked up steam after Mrs. Need2Save started reading and participating in the Mr. Money Mustache forums. The next thing you know, we are discovering FIRE related blogs, reading books like The Simple Path To Wealth, and contemplating sharing our story.
Why would we ever start a blog?
As we mentioned back on our very first post one year ago today, we started Need2Save to share our FI story and help us stay focused on our goals. Given that Mrs. Need2Save is responsible for employee benefits at a large company, she brings significant insight into the laws, investment vehicles, and insurance plans that affect us in the FIRE community. I’m still trying to figure out what I (Mr. Need2Save) bring to the table.
We don’t have any specific goals for Need2Save. Some bloggers have page view, unique visitors, or other metrics they are aiming for. We just hope you find our content useful. That said, we do appreciate when visitors take the time to comment.
Would you mind taking a short survey?
We try to provide unique content, or at least provide a new angle on common FIRE topics. If you can spare one minute, please take this quick survey to help us improve Need2Save. And of course, we appreciate any comments or suggestions you have!
