Our Senior Editor Is Moving On: A Goodbye From Meg
Readers — after almost four years with Wise Bread, I’m moving on. My last day as senior editor of this site is this Friday, July 25. The change is bittersweet, as all good job moves should be. It’s been a delight to work with Wise Bread’s writers and staff, and to interact with you, the wonderful readers. For all of the knowledge I brought to the job, I’ve learned so much more about smart financial moves than I ever thought I could — and much of it from you. You’re an inspiring, ingenious bunch, and I’ll miss you.
I’ll still be around Wise Bread as a reader, and you might even see me pop back in as a writer occasionally. But starting next week, I’ll be working on a new food website that’s launching this fall. As some of you already know, in addition to writing about frugality, I also love writing about food (I even wrote a comfort food cookbook, Little Old Lady Recipes), and this opportunity was just too good to pass up. If you want to follow what I’m up to, you can always visit me at megfavreau.com — I post all of my writing, recipes, comedy (did you know I also do sketch comedy?), and other goings-on there. I'm also @megfavreau on Twitter.
Here’s my goodbye message to you — keep learning, and keep working. I still stand by my one favorite frugal living tip I wrote about over three years ago — don’t give up. In your journey to financial independence, you will have setbacks, and you will make decisions that you wish you didn’t. But these things won’t ruin your life or your finances (even if it feels like they will at the time). The only thing that can really ruin you is giving up on yourself.
