How I Conquered My Fear and Went Rock Climbing Outdoors in Joshua Tree National Park

My First Outdoor Rock Climbing Experience With Cliffhanger Guides at Joshua Tree National ParkHello everyone and happy Friday! Today I’m going to stray a little from my usual weekly update post. I’ve decided that I would like to start going more in depth about certain eventful days in my life, and here is the first one.

Yes, I am a personal finance blogger, but life isn’t all about money, and yes, you can enjoy life while still being responsible with money.

My Review of Uber and How To Get Your First Ride For Free

My Review of Uber and How To Get Your First Ride For FreeI took my very first Uber ride in September when I was at FinCon14. I received a free ride through a promo code (similar to the Uber coupon code that I give you at the end of this post), so I figured I would use it since it was free and I needed a ride.
