Interviews

FIREhub interviews

Who’s Who in the European FI Community?

Interviews are a great way of getting to know people’s backstories, motivations, hopes and dreams. We can learn from their mistakes and get inspiration from their achievements.

Interviews also help build connections between people and build a strong community, as through interviews we can discover what we have in common with others.

Here at FIREhub we run two interview series, one for our bloggers and one for mere mortals (i.e. “normal people”). We hope they inspire you no matter where you are on your FI journey.

Bloggers on FIRE

Full credit for the idea behind Bloggers on FIRE goes to { in·deed·a·bly }, who first suggested it as his entry to our 1st Birthday Competition back in November 2018, and for which he won first prize.

His idea was to interview European FI bloggers so that the community can get to know them better. Over time we’ve built up a “who’s who” directory for the European FI blogging world, which is more interesting than just providing you with a boring list of hundreds of blogs.

Each Bloggers on FIRE interview has two parts. The profile card shows the blogger’s “vital statistics” so you can get an at-a-glance overview of who the blogger is. The interview then digs deeper into the blogger’s backstory, their reasons for working towards FI, what stage they’re at on their journey, and so on.

We’d like to thank { in·deed·a·bly } not only for coming up with the idea but also for working so closely with us on this project to get it up and running. His feedback was invaluable and his patience never-ending!

You can find a full list of Bloggers on FIRE interviews here. If your blog is in our blogroll and you’d like to be interviewed for Bloggers on FIRE, feel free to contact us and we’ll e-mail you all the gory details.

Europeans on FIRE

The idea for Europeans on FIRE evolved from the Bloggers on FIRE series. The idea was to create a similar interview series for non-bloggers. Because “normal” people have interesting things to share with the FIRE community too. From people who’re just making their way out of debt to those who’re already financially independent, all kinds of stories can be inspiring.

You can read the Europeans on FIRE interviews published so far here. If you don’t have a blog and you’d like to take part in Europeans on FIRE, let us know and we’ll be in touch.
