Although my posting frequency has gone down quite a bit since May, working on this blog has really made me take a closer look at maximizing my finances. In addition to starting this blog one year ago, I've also expanded my horizons by doing things like starting to invest in T-Bills, building a 5 year high yield CD ladder, and by playing the credit card arbitrage game by making money on 0% credit card balance transfers. I have no idea what's in store for the year ahead, but can only hope they it is as successful as the past twelve months have been: business has been good and I am fortunate to be happy, healthier (due to a 25 lb weight loss), and wealthier.
