Who Will Be Number 10,000?


I noticed earlier today that I am getting close to 10,000 visitors at my new home so I decided to show the count on my Sitemeter stats (left hand side).

As I write this, it’s only a few people away from hitting that milestone.

I can’t help but wonder who it will be….

Times like these I wish I had something to give away!

To everyone who visited and made it possible to reach 10,000 – I thank you for stopping by ๐Ÿ™‚

Carnival of Debt Reduction is Up!


NCN at the No Credit Needed Blog is hosting this week’s Carnival of Debt Reduction and he’s even made it a podcast! Go check it out!

My favorite this week comes from My Financial Awareness, Anger and Blame will not Change the Situation.

Here’s a quote from the article “…if you think anger and blame will solve the problem (any problem you have), you will just find yourself woven tighter in the issue without a light at the end of the tunnel.”

I catch myself whenever I start to say that my credit cards are evil and essentially place blame for my debt on them. Yes, some of their tactics have been questionable, but in the end it was I who decided to use them to pay for purchases. I was the one spending money beyond my means. Instead of placing blame, I am now taking that energy and working on solutions to my problem (earning more money & spending less money). And let me tell you, just changing my approach to the problem has made a huge difference.
