I can’t tell you how excited I am to be J. Money’s guest today at Budgets Are Sexy.

Regular readers of my Dreamcatcher posts may have seen way back in July, when I said “there was something in this particular [99% Invisible] episode that sparked an idea for a future post — several actually. I most enjoy when I can synthesize an idea from one field with a concept from another, and that’s what happened here. Now I just have to get around to writing the post about it!”

Well, two weeks after that I wrote the first draft of the post, and I’ve been tweaking it every so often since. I finally decided it was ready to publish, and since I had been working on it for over five months I thought I’d try to get it out there as a guest post. J.’s site felt like a good fit, so I sent it to him and he agreed!

To see what I held onto for so long, head over to Budgets Are Sexy and check it out.
