I decided to create a pillar post on my Disney World Experience (from the end of 2009) yesterday. I labored away at the post for hours, typing, tweaking and editing photos, until I created what I believe to be one of my best post to date. If not the best, then definitely the longest as it is over 1000 words!
I was so happy with it that I called in my 10 year old son to check it out. I meant to click preview, but instead click “Publish”!
OH NO! I quickly realized what happened and I went to change the status back to the original, but I was way to late. It already had a hit from my RSS feed that failed because of my changing the status of the post back to draft, so I toggled the post back to a published state and will live with it.
The Disney World post is part of a refocusing my efforts on blogging in a different way. I’ve blog long enough to know a few things, so I’m going to experiment with those new ideas. So, in a way I’m rebooting my approach towards blogging!
Hopefully, the restart will enhance my blog by a decent factor.

How Much Money Is a Lot of Money? This was so much fun, that the entire article just flowed like water running down a stream. It was a very fun and rewarding piece that seems simple on the surface, but has some hidden meaning between the line, especially about inflation.
Keep Your Cool To Save Money Good practical advices, especially if you are easy to anger while driving!
Becoming Beautiful, What the Beautiful People Know – I learned a lot about how photoshop really does make impossible beautiful people that don’t exist. I thought the included videos were incredible fascinating!
Carnival of the Yakezie #50, The Quickening – The Yakezie Carnival is running strong again! If you’d like to host the great carnival shoot me an email (Moneyreasons.com (at) gmail.com) replacing the (at) with @ of course.
Paying Off Your Mortgage is Like Working at a Second Job – This is such a great feeling, I decided to describe one of these hidden benefits of paying off your mortgage early!
Crystal (at BudgetingInTheFunStuff.com) left a great comment that I didn’t add to my initial article. It was such a great comment, that I though was worthy of a quote below:
In fact, I guess I would see living mortgage free as the best part-time job ever since it doesn’t actually require the truly priceless commodity of time!
Crystal’s right, it’s like working a 2nd job, but without any time wasted in doing so! So it’s really like a 2nd job, where there is no work involved! Awesome!
Carnivals and Mentions this past week:
- 101 Centavos
- Move to Portugal
- Budgeting In The Fun Stuff

Sometimes, things go bad and it’s easier to reboot the process and build from the ground up.
