July 18, 2009 was the day of my first blog post and this site. The party started with giveaways earlier in the month but it’s not too late to get in on the celebration.

Cheryl@ MommyPants won the 4 GB thumb drive and Lethea won the first copy of Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey. There are three more prizes including Amazon gift cards to come so join in!

Just to help me remember where I was at one year (I’m getting old….) here are some stats:

Posts: 236
Comments: 1,221
Alexa Rank: 104,127
Subscribers: Less than 100
