I would like to make a personal finance blog, but I feel the Internet would attack me because of the fact that I have a good job and "how would I know what it's like to struggle." Thoughts?

Do it.

Do what you like! You'll never know until you try

If you're writing a blog geared toward people making less money than you, draw from your experiences. I'm sure you didn't always make this much money, or you have family/friends who are going through this. You can do it! The hard part is gaining an audience. Have you considered a personal finance video blog on YouTube? (Just kidding...sort of)

I would do it! Who cares what people think! You never know who you'd be helping!

Do ittt

Before someone steals your idea. And post it on here so we can all support !!

R/personalfinance already exists on Reddit and it is very helpful and full of knowledgeable people. It will be tough to compete with that forum

I see it as a plus actually. You have the credentials to convey legitimacy behind your claims.

Do it. Smart people will benefit.

Go for it! You never know. Just because you have a good job now does not mean you never struggled. You don't have to struggle to have a finance blog

Well personal finance is a big area. Why not drill down into a specific niche? In your case, personal finance for accountants. Majority of new associates probably have the same mold i.e. Young adults with college degrees and student loans who now have a job that probably is paying them more then the average salary

Why do you have put personal details on the blog that would let people know what you do? If you have good advice, you have good advice. Like, who's to say that those Nigerian princes that email me aren't really Nigerian princes?

Do it

I messed up and gave a target salary instead of range to a recruiter. She mentioned that she wanted the info to take back to hiring managers. I've already been through two round of interviews and my last one is just a mock client presentation otherwise I would try and say "after learning more about the role my range has changed". I don't think I can spin that now.

Can I clean this up in an email to her tactfully before she shares numbers with the team? If so, how? TY!
