I can’t believe it. It’s been a year since I started my humble blog and it’s been one year since I decided to buckle down and tackle my debt and be an adult about my money. There were times when I was discouraged due to the lack of commitment I had for my money plan and my blog. There were times when I wanted to quit writing on my blog since I felt like no one was reading it and cared for it. But there were also times I felt incredibly grateful for the few readers that encouraged me. There were times when I felt accomplished and really satisfied looking at the numbers changing in my finances and just an overall change I see in my life.
Now that I’m looking back at the one year life of my blog, I’m glad I stuck to it. This was my driving force in pushing through with my efforts to clean up my financial life and life in general to achieve that. I met a few friends through this too. I’m not sure if they think I’m their friend, but I don’t care. I feel a sense of belonging. Granted it’s a small circle, but size doesn’t really matter, right?
So I thought I’d mention top 3 of my most popular posts for those of you who missed them. Other than the About and Debt Status pages, my most viewed post was Wedding Dress and Cake. I’m one of those people who is automatically drawn to anything wedding related. I guess there are others who are like me in that respect. My fascination with weddings started when I was planning for my own, but it never died. I still love looking at wedding blogs and reading about people’s wedding planning journey. I actually want another wedding for myself, but with the same guy of course~^^
Number 2 on my list is How Much Do You Budget For Gifts? People must have similar problem as me in trying to figure out what and how much to include in gift budget if at all. I did get better since then, but certain things just come up without a warning and all you can do is to deal with it the best way you can by either saying no or be super frugal.
Number 3 on my list is Do You Have Misc. Category In Your Budget? Budget category seems to the topic many people liked on my blog. I think most of the commenters said they don’t have misc. budget. I got better at anticipating expenses and staying under budget, so this sort of became a non-issue for me.
Well thanks for following me on my journey for the past year and if you’ve just found me, feel free to snoop into my past. Please continue to follow me and encourage me while I’m trying to get rid of my nasty debt and let’s try to have some fun. Yay~!!!
