Anniversary Roundup

Anniversary CupcakeOne Year of Prime Time Money

This past Friday marked one year since I started Prime Time Money.  Since I began last April there have been 210 posts and 567 comments.  Overall it's been a fun, and challenging experience.  I feel confident that I have remained true to the reasons I started this blog.  I've learned a great deal about personal finance, writing, and the new web.

Thanks, Everyone!

I want to first of all thank Mrs. PT who has had to put up with many a late night with me typing away on my laptop instead of going to bed, as well as, many “boring” conversations about budgeting and blogging.  Much love to Flexo from Consumerism Commentary who served as my main motivation for starting Prime Time Money.  Also, a big thanks to all my blogging friends who've supported and encouraged me along the way.

Last but certainly not least, a huge thanks to all the readers.  Your comments, emails, and support have been inspiring and rewarding.  In the upcoming week, I'll be taking my appreciation even further by giving away some cash or other reward.  If you're not already a subscriber, take this opportunity to subscribe to Prime Time Money today.

And as always you can earn $50 with a Capital One 360 Savings Sign-Up Bonus.  Head over to my sign-up bonus page for more info.


Carnivals that I participated in this past week:

The 55th Carnival of Money Stories – Tax Day Edition was hosted by The Bag Lady.  The 148th Edition of the Carnival of Personal Finance was held at Gather Little By Little. The Carnival of Debt Reduction #135 was hosted by Credit Addict.  Thanks to all the hosts. 🙂
