What am I getting myself into?

Honestly, I can't believe I'm blogging. I love to read blogs; never saw myself writing one. But there have been a lot of changes in my financial life lately and I need a place to keep track of things. I think my Facebook friends are getting a little tired of all my money-related posts, so I'll share with complete strangers instead!

A little background: I'm a 28 year old Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I don't make much money, so there will be no posts about my huge net worth or living off investment income at 35. I just decided I was tired of being broke and wanted to do something about it. My past (which I'll post more about another time) includes a teenage pregnancy, two college degrees (and the associated loans), a bankruptcy, a divorce... Basically I've made more mistakes than people twice my age, and I'm finally digging my way out.

I'll be pretty open here about my pathetic financial situation. I've never understood why people are so secretive about their money - I know I'm broke, and any readers will know it too. Welcome and bear with me as I figure this out.
