1-Year Blog Anniversary!

by TTMK on February 21, 2013 · 6 comments

I noticed that It’s been just over one year since Tie the Money Knot was launched.  Happy Anniversary to TTMK! Or, maybe we could say Happy Birthday.  Blog owners tend to call these milestones anniversaries, but they’re also birthdays.  Whatever the case is, you get the idea: Tie the Money Knot has been around for over a year now!

Have to say, it’s been a pleasure to be running this blog over the last year.  I started this as a second blog, one which I thought could be another outlet for my interest in writing about personal finance.  The intent was to mix broad personal finance topics with a lot of posts on money and relationships.  To that end, I’m happy about the number of posts that have been published and the discussions we’ve been able to have on a number of different important subjects.

The best part is the regular interaction with commenters who drop by periodically to chime in with their viewpoints.  Without each of you, this blog wouldn’t be the same.  You make these discussions really fun, and I truly enjoy getting your comments and views on these topics!

There have been 88 posts published to date.  In terms of which ones I’ve particularly enjoyed, here is a sampling of them:

When Joint Finances and Emotions Collide

Gender Roles and Big Money Decisions

Avoiding Gold Diggers Who Marry Primarily for Money

Who Pays for the First Date: What is the Modern View?

10 Habits to Increase Wealth

Judging a Date’s Generosity by The Waiter Test

6 Types of Financially Toxic People

6 Personal Finance Success Tips

As far as what I’d like to add in Year 2, I’d say it’s getting reader stories.  I’ve made a few attempts in Year 1 to ask for reader stories, but haven’t pursued it as much as I could have.  Personally, I think that there are so many different ways that people do things, and so many different types of relationships, that people could benefit from reading reader stories about how they handle money and what questions they would have for fellow readers.

Anyway, once again I’d just like to say thanks for a helping to make this a fun first year for Tie the Money Knot!

Way to go on year #1. You’re right: I remember the day you were starting this blog like it was yesterday. I agree with Kevin: it goes fast.

Thanks! It does seem like just yesterday. Next thing you know, a year goes by. Life goes by faster and faster each year, it seems.
