Weekly Updates

  • The Financial Blogger Conference 2014 will be in New Orleans, LA from September 18-20, 2014!  That’s a 7 hour drive/bus trip from my house or a 1 hour plane ride if I’m willing on paying 5 times more.  Hmmm…I’m leaning towards the bus or driving myself.  Hopefully there will be a bootcamp like last year from September 17-18 or something too.  Anybody from the Houston area want to carpool Sept 16 and Sept 21?  :-D
  • Remember me being excited about my new ant farm?  Yeah, I’ve tried ordering ants from two different companies so far – both have charged me and I still have no ants to show for it.  I already disputed the first charge with Discover since I was getting no response, and they already credited it back.  I’m waiting to hear back from the second set of people.  In the meantime, I’m super excited about Christmas!  :-)
  • Remember to sign up for my posts via email or my weekly newsletter to be able to enter the separate giveaway that I host for subscribers only every month! Plus, I share things in the newsletter that I no longer share here (hint…what do you think happened to my monthly income reports).
