Number One

Well, that's the first post here! I have never had a blog before, so this is going to be new experience for me.
I would like to say a few words about myself and why I decided to run this blog. I'm a Russian girl who goes to a university in Moscow. I've recently got very interested in personal finance. I started to think about saving, spending and - oh! - even investing. It was hard, though, to find people with who I could discuss such matters. It deals with a specific attitude of Russian people to money, I guess, and I hope to post more on this topic in the future. Anyway, surfing on the Internet I found some personal finance blogs and that's where I found what I'd been searching for. Well, the problem is that, first, these blogs are in English and, second, people talk about life and money in the USA. But these blogs still give me a lot of ideas, useful tips and information. It is extremely interesting to compare finance matters here in Russia and in a foreign country and to learn something new.
I decided to join the personal finance blogosphere because I wanted to tell about the way things went in another country. I didn't like being a passive reader and decided to become more involved in pf blogs life.
Everybody is greatly welcomed here! I would be very happy to meet new people, to talk and to share opinions.
Yours, a new pf blogger :)

Olga, I thought I'd take a second to pop on over and see who had given so much thought to crunching my financial numbers - and I'm so impressed by you! You are so far ahead than most to be figuring all this out at your age. Bravo!

I also enjoy learning about how different cultures think about money. Thanks for sharing.
