Suburban Dollar Hits 100

While I was on vacation I passed a milestone in the creation of by posting my 100th post since starting this blog back in February. While I haven’t had the rock star success of some other new comers to the community, still looking to reach 100 subscribers, I feel that I have contributed and continue to provide valuable content to my readers. This really has been a crazy ride for me for several reasons, mainly though I didn’t think I could do it and make it worthwhile to my readers. I would like to think I have proven myself wrong.  The people who represent this community of personal finance bloggers are unbelievable. They have really welcomed me and helped me, encouraged me, and stuck with me when I was in a slump. So thanks to all of you for making this such a great site and a great ride.

In honor of my 100th post I wanted to highlight some of my early posts, the number in Green is the total visits to for that day.

Congrats on 100! If you’ve got near 100 subscribers, I’d say your doing well. I’ve been doing this for longer and I am still trying my best to hit 50! Oh and by the way, I am one of your subscribers 🙂

We both started around the same time, and I have to agree with you.. the PF community is great!

You are one of the people I have networked with and it is awesome to know that if I ever needed something… you would be there to help!
