Ms ZiYou is born

Wow, I have a real, live blog, Ms ZiYou.  This is very exciting, and actually something I’ve been pondering for a while; I wanted to make sure if I did it, I did it properly and you know committed to it. So here I am with a shiny blog, I’ve wrangled with WordPress and sent numerous messages to the hosting company and now I feel ready to face the world.

What will I write about

I’m wanting to blog on things that matter to me, and connect with like-minded individuals. So for me that is my quest for financial freedom, which I should achieve in three years, and making sure I enjoy myself along the way. Hence alongside my core frugality, I have many passion projects and things I care about. At the end of the day, I am an endlessly curious individual who thrives on new ideas, and want to make sure we have a society where everyone has an equal opportunity.

Geeky Reason for my unoriginal title

As you may have noticed, I have a desire to change, brand and modify things, but I hesitated over changing Hello World as my first post. I love this phrase, and still believe it is the best way to teach kids to program, it’s so open and shows an inherent understanding that there is a wide world, that we need to learn to communicate with.


So Hello World from Ms ZiYou.

    1. Hi frogdancer, I’m looking forward to it. Indeed three years can seem like a long time, or it could just fly by…..I’m aiming to enjoy it as much as possible until work become truly optional.

  1. Hello Ms ZiYou

    As one single female to another, I have to say that it’s not too bad among all these male bloggers but you’re right, regarding diversity, the more the merrier!

    Three years to FI – wow! I look forward to following you as you get to the finish line! Good luck with the blog.

    1. Thanks Weenie… I agree everyone is very welcoming, and it will be interesting to see if early retirement becomes more normalised and talked about….or if it remains as an alternative lifestyle.

      The finish line really doesn’t seem that far away now!

  2. Hello Ms Ziyou!

    Welcome to the world of FIRE blogging!

    I really like Hello World tutorials as well… love the fact that you left that as the title 🙂

    All the best and looking forward to reading some more posts

  3. Hello, Ms Ziyou! I’m fairly new to the blogging world just like you (I started in January of this year as well). Three years to FIRE is going to be an amazing accomplishment. Time will fly by very quickly and before you know it, you’re there. I look forward to checking out more from your blog and reading your progress.

  4. Im hoping to get to FIRE in three years too! I just started blogging last week but i’m a bit all over the place with my blog lol looking forward to binging on your posts!
