February was a great month for my personal and professional development. After the lows of January, it was great to have a month where I felt like I was stretching-and-growing instead of crashing-and-burning.
All of this growth took time away from the blog, though. I didn’t get as much written as I’d hoped. Still, I think there were some great discussions, which I’ve shared below. And I have a ton of excellent ideas for March. It’s my goal to get to a million visits next month! (GRS missed that target in January by 27,000.)
Here’s the best of February:
- February 2nd Playing with numbers: Using spreadsheets to learn about money
- February 4th: Save on cell phones with employee and student discounts
- February 6th: “What next?” The third stage of personal finance — this post introduced a new theme to the site
- February 11th: Investing 101: Average is not normal (a guest post from Carl Richards)
- February 12th: The national economy versus your personal economy
- February 17th: How to build confidence and destroy fear — an article that took me 18 months to write (no joke!)
- February 19th: How I cut my television bill in half
- February 23rd: Outside looking in: How others view our spending
- February 26th: Magazines (and websites) about homesteading and self-sufficiency
