Today marks the first anniversary of this site and my attempt to really grab the reins of my financial situation and steer it in a better direction. In the meantime, the world has seen the greatest financial peril in decades. I’ve managed to remain relatively unscathed and while I’ve build up some better financial habits—sadly, none have even been documented here—I’ve let this site slip considerably and I’ve actually increased my amount of debt instead of reducing it.

It’s time for a regained push. I was previously getting uncomfortable with the looming debt before me, but I’m now getting dangerously close to slipping over the edge. So, I’ve renewed the domain name for another year (cost: $15.50) and am back in the driver’s seat urging the horse forward again.
