Now, don’t worry – there won’t be a toddler birthday party for this new 2 year old. No going to Chuck e Cheese, no visiting indoor fun center with inflatable slides, no birthday cake either. Sorry. But at least we won’t meltdown as we enter the “terrible twos”!
You know, I originally started this as my second blog two years ago. My thinking was that there is so much talk out there in the blogosphere about saving, spending, investing, and the other pillar topics of personal finance. However, one area that has a huge impact on our finances is relationships! Whether with a spouse, person we’re dating, parents/in-laws, kids, friends, or really anyone – relationships and money are intertwined. Yet, we don’t talk about it that much!
This is why I thought dedicating a blog to focus primarily on the broad topic of money and relationships would be a nice addition to the roster of personal finance blogs already out there. It’s an important subject that doesn’t get enough attention and can be pretty fun!
So, as Tie the Money Knot turns 2, I thought I’d share some favorite posts and ask for some feedback from you.
Top Posts – First 2 years
So, how should we determine the top posts? One could determine this by subjective opinion, visitors from search engines, or even referral traffic from other sites. Personally, I’ll just go with posts that generated the most comments.
Here are the top 10, out of 180 published here:
So, I’d really like to get your thoughts on a couple of things
- What types of articles do you most like here, and what would you like to see more of? I’d like to make sure that we’re always working to cover topics that are of interest. Feel free to email me if you would like to share thoughts (see the contact us tab above).
- I’m hoping to get more reader stories, and would like to get your suggestions on how to make this happen. I think could be doing more (and being more effective) in getting stories, but would like to get some ideas. Really, there are so many people that could use help from readers and there are also a lot of interesting stories out there just waiting to be shared. The next step is getting them out there! Again, feel free to use the “Contact Us” tab above.
Thank you to everyone for reading, commenting, sharing, and promoting this blog. Also, a big thank you to staff writer Melissa Batai for her contributions.
I look forward to building upon these first 2 years, delivering more posts and interesting discussions!
