I’m lucky enough to have some time off today when I’m writing this (Thursday), so I’m spending it getting caught up on all of the blogging things that I have to do. I’ve been answering email, reading posts that I missed during the week, responding to comments, writing posts, and getting things set up before I go on vacation.
I’m only gone for a couple of days, but it always seems like longer when you get on a plane, doesn’t it? I always feel like I’ll be gone for weeks and out of the loop when I get back, even if I’m only gone for a weekend.
I have about three cups of strong coffee in me right now so I’m being productive, which is a nice feeling.
Yakezie put together some summer teams, and I am lucky to be in a team with the bloggers behind:
- Making Sense of Cents
- Frugal Rules
- The First Million Is the Hardest
- Fat Guy Skinny Wallet
- The Money Principle
- Beyond Debt
- Uber Steward
I’m happy to be in a team with these awesome bloggers and that I have this opportunity to get to know them all better.

One of the emails in my inbox was from the blogger behind the Debt Myth about a giveaway they are hosting! We’re giving away an iPad Mini, courtesy of the Debt Myth. Check out their new app that they just launched, thePay off Debt App! If you win, you’ll also get the app, so not only will you get a sweet iPad, you’ll also have your first (and probably most helpful) app on it.
