I am taking a week off from Real Life to focus on home improvement projects, friends, and web sites. Much of my time will be spent behind the scenes here at Get Rich Slowly, planning for future improvements. If you have any requests or suggestions, please let me know. I’m open to all comments, good or bad, in an attempt to improve this site.

I’ll be posting as normal during this break. Look forward to information on index funds, a continued interview with Scott Durbin of the Imagination Movers, advice on how to avoid scams, and an excerpt from Malcolm Gladwell’s Blink discussing how and why we buy things. And, as always, I’ll share personal finance stories from people like you.
