I did it! I finally posted a link-up weekly instead of monthly. Hooray! Today is already looking like a good day, I’m about to eat some delicious funfetti pancakes.
I know people usually do a “life update” here, but since I normally post so much about my life in my blogs, does anyone really need to know what is going on with me? Ok, well, I’m in a new relationship and it is going awesome. I’m working on my book proposal (still….) that’s due March 15 and I have some really amazing mentors and friends helping me get it into ship-shop shape.
Oh! And the most exciting news is that I was nominated for One Smart Dollar’s Top Personal Finance Blog of 2012. Since it is a reader based nomination, it means that much more. The winner gets an ipad Mini and $100 to giveaway to their loyal readers and fans. Since my birthday is around the corner and I just found out I will be getting a full size Ipad as a present, if you help me win I WILL GIVE AWAY THE IPAD. I know, I’m bribing, but there is lots in it for you too if you go and vote. Click on the image below to go and cast your vote-one click is all it takes.
