I have no idea where my little blog is headed. I began it on January 4th because I was feeling inspired by my financial goals for the year and thought it would be nice to write them down. I had never been a regular reader of a blog before. I had heard of blogs and read a few posts here and there but really didn't know much about the world of blogging. And what a world it is! I have learned SO much in the past month and continue to be amazed by the quality and quantity of blogs out there.
In case my blog continues to grow, and I continue to feel like writing, I think it will be nice to have a record of where it has come from. And if not, it might still be of interest to the curious readers like me out there!
So here is the first in a series (hopefully) of posts about my blog statistics.

- Got mentioned on Moneycentral! (Thanks to Jacob at Early Retirement Extreme for bringing it to my attention)
- Almost got a thousand visits this month... maybe if I'd had a full 31 days I may have hit that milestone.
Many thanks to all of my readers!
