As I look into the blogosphere, I’m reminded of lines from books and movies that I have read or seen. Lines such as “There are other worlds than these” and “How far down does the rabbit hole go”.
I’m constantly amazed as I step through the doorway of the just the personal finance blogosphere alone, how vast and broad it truly is.
I’m happy to be here in the small space that I exist! It’s a remarkable place where any limitations that exists are forged by the blogger him or herself. I hope that I can someday stand amongst those who cast the bright lights. But for now, I’m happy to just emit a soft but warm glow…

My Favorite Post from the Week:
My favorite post on my site was: A Rare Special Frugal Activity With My Son – I liked it the best because I believe it’s something that I will remember forever! He was so enthusiast about the entire process, that it made me enthusiast too!
My website pasted the 1 year threshold, but I’m going to hold off celebrating until next week. It’s been a great year though! I’ve really learned a lot!
