When I started blogging, I decided that I was not going to include a regular roundup post. Please forgive my blogging naïvety. Here I am with my first one because I now understand that I need one. Welcome to the first edition of the Messy Money Minute: a short summary of what Messy Money has been up to on the web.
Personal Finance Blog Hops
I have been participating in two blog hops regularly. Blog hops are very popular in the fashion/beauty/lifestyle blogging communities but not as much in personal finance. I am happy that I have discovered these two in particular:
Financially Savvy Saturdays #finsavsat:
FemmeFrugality has handed the torch to BrokeGirlRich as new host. I had the pleasure of co-hosting on August 16. It was a lot of fun. If you would like to promote one of your posts, I would recommend stopping by. Lots of tweets, +1’s and Pins to go around.
Friday Jet Fuel #JetFuel:
Money Propeller hosts a blog linky party every friday. It is fast and easy to link up your post. It is also a great way to connect with other bloggers.
Shout outs and Blogrolls
I am honored that other bloggers have mentioned my posts or added me to their blog rolls. (If I have missed you, please drop me a line and let me know, so I can include you next time). Thanks to:
Canadian Budget Binder – Mr. CBB included me in his Making a Difference feature.
Modest Money – Messy Money is in the Top Finance Blogs List. Right now I am 310/381 blogs (!) It is a great way to track my progress and to find new blogs to follow.
Twitter – I have created a massive list of PF bloggers and Money Tweeters if you would like to see them all in one spot. If you would like to be added tweet me @Messy__Money and I will add you to the list.
On the blog
I have worked hard on the technical side of things — refreshing my theme, fixing links, speeding up load times. I hope my visitors will like the improved look. I also joined the Yakezie challenge to learn from other bloggers.
Our net worth continues to grow. I asked my husband if he would mind if I posted it online and he is not comfortable with the idea, so no net worth update for me. Here is a clue number 2 though — Our net worth contains the number 7. See my Messy Garden post for clue number 1.
The Plutus Awards are awarded to personal finance bloggers via peer nomination and panel selection. The finalists have been announced. I am so proud of everyone and congratulations to all the nominees and finalists. Stay tuned because I think a group of us are going to have a virtual party to celebrate. I cannot wait. Lets make something trend on Twitter.
What’s in Store for Messy Money
I wrote my first guest post! I am so excited. I can’t wait for it to be published.
I was interviewed by a few other bloggers and will share the links once published.
My list of blog post ideas keeps growing and growing! I need to sit down and write.
Stay tuned…. and thanks for stopping by!
