First I want to thank Sean at One Smart Dollar and the fine folks from Ready For Zero for putting on a fabulous competition for Top Personal Finance Blog of 2012. The one thing that I am very happy that came out of this competition is, my traffic stats have been through the ROOF. I am super pumped about that. My newsletter, my feed count, my page views there is not one aspect that has not seen improvement.
We were running up against some of the bigger sites and I know they didn’t publicize it much, because if they did they would have knocked lil me on my rear. I am humbled to have been part of it. So where do we go from here, hopefully we have cemented our place and you can count on us to be around for a while.
This week has been an eye opening week for myself, my daughters are doing ballet and tap and before I had kids I was just thinking how am I ever going to sit through a dance recital or ballet; Being a guy that is heavily into sports and watching NCAA basketball! Well having kids is completely different, you are so engulfed in what they are doing and you are the proudest parent seeing them out there perform. I love watching my girls and I couldn’t be happier sitting there watching a ballet or tap. In fact, I am the only father that shows up to watch every practice.
This weekend sit back and think about an enjoyable moment you had with your parents or you are having with your kids. Oh and one more thing, It is almost March Madness time!!! Make sure to catch all the great basketball going on tomorrow.
I go the idea of starting my own site from J$ at Budgets Are Sexy and coincidentally MMM who we were competing against yesterday. I know I could never rock a stache like that but maybe I will get a chance to see it in person at Fincon.
Have a nice weekend!
