It’s been a strange October for me. At the first of the month, I began the transition to working full time on my book, Your Money: The Missing Manual. It’s a much different challenge than blogging, and it’s taking all my time. In theory, the book writing will be done in a few months, and then I’ll be able to devote more attention to GRS again! Thank you for your patience while I pursue this life-long goal.

Meanwhile, I was pleased with the stuff I did write here during October, and the contributions from staff writers Adam and April, and from the guest authors. And, of course, I always appreciate your contributions to the discussion.

Here are some of the best Get Rich Slowly articles from the month of October:
