Site changes

While I was on vacation I passed a milestone in the creation of SuburbanDollar.com 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 SuburbanDollar.com for that day.

Goals Going Forward

My goals for the future are to:

  3. Be better about participating in Carnivals
  4. Host carnivals, I am currently on the schedules for COPF, Pecuniary Delights, Festival of Frugality, and Carnival of Money Stories.
  5. Run a few contests (cause everyone likes free swag)

WOAH! I caught a bug this morning and decided to completely redesign the site. I think I have everything the way I want it now although there may be a few more minor changes to come but hopefully nothing drastic. If you just follow my feed an haven’t been by the site in a while, drop by and lot me know what you think of the new look.

Also new today is a static page for The Wealthy Blogger listing, a new dedicated subscription page, some sponsors, and new twitter profile background. I am still trying to work the kinks out of my adsense placement so if there locations annoy you let me know.

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think about layout.

I added a third column to incorporate a few more links around the site, let me know if you think it works.
