Confession: I've been unfaithful

November 22nd, 2016 at 11:58 pm

Yes, my Saving Advice friends, I've been cheating on you with another personal finance website that reminds me a lot of Saving Advice....except that they have over 20,000 followers!

I had mixed feelings about mentioning it here because I don't mean to create any kind of mass exodus, but I have noticed for some time here that I'll look at posts on this site in the morning, and then come back to it in the evening, and there may be only 3 new posts during that time.

It worries me that this site may at some time be taken down without any advance warning. If that happens, consider joining me at Your Money and Your Life, on Facebook. With a larger body of people contributing questions or comments, it just makes for a more enriching conversation.

How I spent the day:
1. Decided upon a 3rd dish I'll be bringing for Thanksgiving.

2. Made a delicious tomato-peanut butter sauce (with garlic, onion, ginger, cumin and coriander) over spaghetti sauce for lunch and dinner. The sauce actually came from a recipe that included serving it over sweet potato, which was great, but the sauce was so wonderful I realized it would be good with the spaghetti squash or even any kind of grain like quinoa, rice or farro.

3. Did one load of laundry.

4. Wrote up 2 more "topic summaries" for This leaves me with just one more to write this week; my goal is to write 3 of these things each week, which to me is enough to feel like a contribution, week in and week out, without it becoming like a chore.

5. I took a half hour walk around the neighborhood. It was cold. I wore gloves.

6. I finished putting together my family research album so I can bring it to Jersey with me and show it to my cousin.

Tomorrow, I'm picking up just a few grocery items for my Tgiving recipes. I'll spend the day making my 3 dishes, doing another load of laundry and packing an overnight bag.

My cousin mentioned there MIGHT be a third guest at dinner, the former CFO of her company, an engineering firm, who is divorced. Could be interesting.

    I have noticed there are often days where there are very few updated blogs.

    I hope the site won't get suddenly taken down due to low activity. Maybe you can entice some of the Your Money & Your Life followers to this site? I do notice that sometimes there aren't too many blog posts being put up though I do hope to be writing again regularly soon - I have been lurking though, just was too busy to blog.

    I would miss this site terribly if everyone quit blogging.

    We need some new bloggers! I'm just on auto pilot and don't always have something to share. I requested to join, but don't expect that I will leave my blog any time soon.

    I've requested to join too, but I'm not abandoning my blog

    I'm honestly glad sometimes that there aren't more blog postings - like when I've not been able to be on for a week and need to catch up with everyone ... Smile
    But I do get that it is better to have more people around/posting/reading/commenting to get a wider POV.
