the leave home blog: everything you need to know about leaving home

Have you ever been really, truly excited about something? So excited that it consumes your free time, it takes so much work and yet you don’t bat an eyelid at doing it? That’s what this has been for me. Things have gone by the wayside. I’ve been a bad blogger here. I miss my Suger Coat It space and blogging here. But she will be here when I get back. I hope you will be too.

I am posting this here because not everyone supports a dream, an idea, or a plan when you have one. I’m asking you to back mine. Again. I’d love your support. I am launching something I’ve been working on for a while now. Well, just over a month actually. Time flies when you’re having fun and all that. Haha. The “Leave Home Blog” is a blog about leaving home. What to do, how to do it and how to not suck at it and end up bloated (from all the salt, let’s face it), broke and back in your parent’s house.

It started as an idea for content here. A post series. An idea to be developed and then it became a much bigger idea. On the “Leave Home Blog” we will talk about money and budgeting, people skills, cooking and food, life skills, budget travel and news and reviews. The first post I wrote for the blog in full was ‘How to Boil an Egg’ because let’s face it, the basics are where it’s at. Get the foundation right and life builds from there.

But it’s not all about the basics.

We talk about managing your new living environments, budgeting for things you want to avoid credit card and other consumer debt and how to lodge an insurance claim when things go wrong. It’s about answering those questions you have when you first leave home and just don’t ask. “Leave Home Blog” is going to be the older brother or sister you WISH you had.

“Leave Home Blog” will be aimed at those leaving home for the first time, whether they are heading to university, higher education or to their first post-school job. It’s also for their parents and those of us who are a little bit shit at life. Anyone who could use a helping hand getting life on track.

Fingers crossed for me would you. Launch day is Monday and I’m nervous as hell!
