The other day I asked the question: “How much money do you make?“. That post got a lot of responses from many people who were comfortable sharing how much their annual salaries are. I think overall more people were comfortable sharing their finances with other people than not. I thought it would be fun for anyone that wanted to share their salary to do so here. I’m going to allow anonymous comments so that no one has to be public with their money if they don’t want to be. And for the people that don’t feel comfortable with everyone knowing their business, they can comment anonymously and share without revealing their identity.
I’ll have to approve comments manually, so if you do comment with anonymous it most likely will go into moderation and I’ll be sure to approve it as soon as I can. If you want to play along, please comment with:
-Your annual base salary.
-What state or area of the country you live in.
-Your job title or position and a short description if it’s unclear.
I think it will be neat to see how salaries vary from positions and areas of the country. I know that some salaries may sound high or low at first, so please keep in mind that someone who makes $70,000 and lives in Washington DC may experience the same standard of living as someone who makes $45,000 and lives in Indianapolis. Obviously these are numbers that I pulled out of my head and aren’t completely accurate, so don’t hold me to them.
Let the fun and games begin!
