Thank You Readers!

August 8, 2007

I really appreciate you taking time out of your busy, information packed day to stay current on the latest money adventures at Money Smart Life.  There are some days when writing about personal finance is easy and others where it is more of a struggle.  Of course this means some posts are better and some are worse, thanks for commenting on the good ones and sticking around despite the bad ones.

To the Future!
I appreciate all the emails I get and the comments you leave.  I hope my insights into personal finance are valuable and that you’ve been able to apply a thing or two you picked up here.  The truth about successful personal finance is it’s typically made up of many money decisions over time, just like a useful blog is composed of many articles and their feedback over time.  I’d like to think that your personal finance knowledge and net worth will grow along with this site.  Here’s to the future!

Getting to Know You
I know some of you quite well and some not at all. You probably know more about me than I you, which is fine because that’s the way blogs work.  I often wonder about the different people that read the site and what kind of things would be useful for you to read about. Feel free to shoot me an email through my contact form or leave a comment below mentioning more about you or what you’d like to see on the site.

Reader Giveaway, Kind Of
I’d like to give away something to all the readers to say thanks but of course our son keeps using up those diapers so a giveaway isn’t in the budget.  I can give away someone else’s money though. 

ING Referrals
As a customer of ING Direct they have a referral program that gives $25 to anyone I refer (plus $10 to me) that signs up for a  Orange Savings Account or an Electric Orange checking account. You have to be a new customer and make a minimum deposit of $250 to qualify. We use the Orange Savings for our emergency fund and I can recommend them.

If you’re interested shoot an email to and I’ll send you a referral, I have 50 available.  If not, stay tuned because I’ll definitely give away sweet prizes when our net worth hits the 1 million mark.  It will be a few decades but what better reason to keep reading 🙂

Thanks again for reading and helping make this site a success!
