Sometime last week I posted my 200th post on SuburbanDollar.com. For some reason that milestone amazes me, on top of that I had my 50,000th page view yesterday. While my subscribers continue to increase traffic has dropped a little bit this past week. I am not sure if it is Football or what but I expect a slow week next week as well since TV is coming back on. Have a great weekend and enjoy these reads from my tweeple.
@The_Weakonomist proves once again he knows a lot more than me when he explains what peak oil is. I agree with his assessment though, if we start to run low on our reserves we are just going to get better at getting the hard stuff to grab.

@Matt_SF Gives us 10 reasons why we should hire an accountant. I hate paying people to do things for me, I dont’ know why but I just hate it. I always try to do it myself, this is a good list though of reasons why you might not want to go it alone.

I started deals.suburbandollar.com this week so I thought I would highlight a couple of the offers I have posted. Make sure you subscribe to the separate deals feed to get updates on the deals and offers because they won’t show in my regular feed. I updated the feed links so you will get the deals feed if you are on the deals site or looking at a deal.
