As you can tell by a look at my homepage, it has been a while since my last post. By brother-in-law posted a link to the annual pumpkin contest in October, but my last real post before that was September. I’m sorry for the inactivity, but I do have some good excuses:
1. In early [...]
Being a blog that focuses on personal finance, we talk a lot about money here. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that this blogger wants to make some money off of this blog. I’ve tried a few things before with very limited success (I’ve probably made enough to cover the costs of maintaining the site). [...]
Just an FYI…Due to a long overdue upgrade of the WordPress software that runs this blog (ok, it was so overdue that it was a re-install), you may notice small changes on the site. Most notably, my blogroll is now empty and will be reconstructed. I will be going through the old blogroll to determine what [...]

Sorry to everyone for the site issues today. I was making some changes to the nameservers associated with our domain (they are the settings that tell your computer where the pages for the site associated with our domain really are) to allow the old wordpress.com site to redirect to the new site. Unfortunately GoDaddy has [...]
Just a little note to frequent visitors to the site. I will be making a few changes to the format of the individual post pages of this site in the coming days. Specifically, the URLs for individual post will change from a format based on the post number to a format based on the date [...]
