How I Went From Collecting Cents to Understanding Finance

Hey! My name is Freya, the founder of Collecting Cents. 

Before this blog became a successful finance blog and I started to educate myself on personal finance, I was pretty much in the same boat you are probably in now.

I spent money on things that did not matter and went through a good part of my younger years trying to deal with everything from insecurities to anxiety by getting a new pair of jeans. 

A lot of people deal with credit card debt, counting pennies to put food on the table, and having to worry about retirement. 

This blog was started at the point in my life when I decided I really did not want to live like that. 

I don't focus on the 'paid off $50,000 in debt in 6 months' stories because they simply aren't true. I focus on the real stuff- finance tips that I believe can help you get to where you want to be the right way.

The aim of this personal finance blog is to teach readers how to work from home, budget their finances, payoff debt, and make money online. 

A lot of what I talk about comes from my own personal experience and if I learn something knew, you guys will be the first to know.

Not being able to raise a few hundred dollars during an emergency or not investing what you have are problems you should not be dealing with.

Understanding how to plan my finances and stay on top of things has let me stress less and have a more flexible schedule. 

Little more about me...

When I am not working on my own personal finance website, I am working with digital marketing companies to improve their rankings on Google through great backlinks and good SEO which is a business I keep mostly separate to this one. 

I am also trying to travel as much as I can which thankfully my work allows me to do.

Couple of things to note:

  1. 1. If your email is the classic 'can you add a link to my amazing resource and get no compensation in return because it will help your readers', the email is going straight to spam.

  2. 2. If you want to submit a guest post, please include published samples, your expertise in a brief paragraph, and any other info you think might be important. A copy-paste template will not do the trick. 

3. The email above is my personal email but if you do have my work email, you can use that too. I choose not to make that one public.
