One year ago today, I posted my first item on Don’t Mess With Taxes. Happy birthday blog!
But since the blog is just a baby, I felt like I had to at least mention this milestone.
In the last 12 months, I've rambled on some tax and/or personal finance topic almost every day. In total, you'll find 405 posts, more than 150 comments and a decent number of sites (most respectable) that link here.
I get enough page views to pull in some pocket money from the Google ads and a couple of folks have even ordered items from Amazon after clicking through one of those commercial links.
I have plans to expand and spruce up the site -- add some features, revamp the look -- as soon as the demands of "real" life take a tiny break!
Unfortunately, that might be later rather than sooner, since the 2006-07 tax season is about to hit high gear. Until then, I appreciate your patience as I periodically make minor tweaks.
Today, though, I want to celebrate having survived year one of blogging, first by thanking you all. I am grateful for your confidence in the site and I hope that now and then you find something that brightens your day and saves you a few bucks.
Most of all, I hope your continued visits mean you enjoy reading Don’t Mess With Taxes as much as I enjoy writing it.
Here's to many more happy blogging returns!
