Blog Anniversary Recap and Winners!

It’s been three weeks already?? I can’t believe it and I have to apologize for being a tad late on putting up this announcement. But here it is!

Over the past three weeks, I’ve seen tremendous growth and activity all over the place around here. I’ve gotten to know more of you in a bunch of new and different ways. I have heard some awesome and really helpful feedback about the kind of things that you want to read about and I’ll tell you right now, while I don’t reply to comments in giveaways as it just makes things too messy, I appreciate each of your comments. I plan to write about each and every topic you asked about in the comments from real estate investments to starting managing time while working side-hustles.

Now to the stats!

Thanks to you, my wonderful readers, new and old, this blog has grown quite a bit over the past three weeks…
