What exactly is FIRE?
If you’ve stumbled upon Chatting FIRE without knowing what FIRE means, FIRE stands for Financial Independence Retire Early. Read more here.
Why create a forum? There’s already Facebook Groups and Subreddits.
Let’s be clear, Chatting FIRE is not designed to compete with the current FIRE groups and subreddits. Chatting FIRE offers something unique and different.
A forum offers a great platform to have structured and long-form discussion around specific topics related to FIRE.
These discussions are easily discovered by others to help everyone learn.
On social media/subs, discussions usually disappear in the feed within 24 hours and are not easily discovered. A forum also offers great personal privacy when discussing financial topics.
Are there any rules?
Yes, find them here.

Are there any costs?
