Hello Good Financial Cents Readers! I’m so excited to share a few announcements of some cool happenings in my life. So much to share, but where to start?
First, let’s start with some blog milestones. It’s been over a year and a half since I started Good Financial Cents and it’s grown to more than I could have ever imagined. When I first started my blog I was super excited to have 100 people visit my blog. The graphic below shows what my current stats are looking like (as about two weeks ago) and right now I’m averaging over 4,000 visitor per day! Pretty soon I’ll pass my one millionth page view which will be pretty neat.
Guest Post at Wisebread
When I get a little free time (which is never ) I try to contribute a guest post at Wisebread.com. You can check out my recent post on the Backdoor into the Roth IRA. In case you missed my last one, I shared how to save $1,000 on your next backpacking trip.
I am excited to announce that I have worked out a partnership with the local SIU Credit Union that will allow me to offer financial planning services to all their members. This is a tremendous opportunity and I’m looking forward to seeing the relationship grow. You can see the press release here.
New Baby and New House
I hope you saw my update post about our second son Bentley coming into this world. The past two weeks have been a fun adjustment as both the Misses and I try to remember how we functioned on such little sleep. As if we didn’t need any more chaos in our life, we’re gearing up for the big move into our newly built home next weekend.
Updates to Good Financial Cents
New house, new baby, new opportunities, growing blog….I’m sure you’re wondering how I do it? Sometimes I wonder myself. To make sure I still offer quality posts to my Good Financial Cents readers, I’m adding another staff writer. Miranda Marquit will be joining JoeTaxpayer as an awesome contributor to GFC. Miranda is a journalistically trained freelance writer and professional blogger working from home. She is a contributor for Mainstreet.com, Personal Dividends and several other sites. You can also find her at The AllBusiness Personal Finance Corner and the Banks.com Mortgage Blog.
Thanks to everyone that subscribes to this blog. Can’t wait to see what 2010 brings!
