For years, readers have complained that there are too many stories at GRS. “There’s no need to post more than once a day,” my wife tells me, echoing the feedback I receive from folks like you. So, I’ve gradually been reducing the number of posts at the site: I published 62 articles in January 2008, for instance, but there will only be 35 for May 2011. Meanwhile, the technical elves and I have been playing with ways to make the comments more useful.

As a result, even though this month may feature the fewest posts in the site’s history (I’m not sure if that’s true, but it’s close), there have been all sorts of outstanding conversations. I always say this site’s success isn’t because of me but because of you, the readers. And it’s true. With rare exception, your comments are useful and interesting, and you do a great job of supporting each other. This month has been especially awesome.

Don’t believe me? Consider this: When I went to sort through the best articles for May, there were thirteen posts with over 100 comments — and six (almost seven) with over 200 comments. Holy cats! Thanks, everyone.

With so many great articles and discussions to choose from, it was tough to narrow the list of “greatest hits” to just a handful, but here’s what I came up with:

The blog isn’t the only part of this site. If you have burning questions about personal finance, one of the best places to get answers is the Get Rich Slowly discussion forum. The forum is a great place to chat with your fellow readers. Have questions about emergency funds? Ask! Want to chat about cheap vacations? This is the place to do it. The forums have over 4900 registered users and nearly 55,000 posts.

Finally, you can follow Get Rich Slowly on Twitter or join the Facebook page for Get Rich Slowly. The GRS social media elves do a great job of sharing personal-finance info through both of these channels.

Note: I’ve separated the Get Rich Slowly twitter account from my personal Twitter account. For GRS updates and personal-finance news, follow GRSblog on Twitter. The jdroth account is where I provide actual personal updates.
