  4. Just finished reading through your archives. Congrats on the one year “blogoversary”.

    Having folks add you to their blogroll is a great idea for increasing traffic.

    One of these days I’ll get around to having a contest or entering carnivals.


  5. Hi! Happy Anniversary!

    I subscribed to your feed and blogrolled you (it’s under Random Threads on my sidebar).

    You can contact me on my About page (if I’m lucky!). Thanks!


  6. I subscribed to your feed. I am also trying to get to 100 subscribers. I had my highest number of subscribers ever, yesterday which was 93.

    I hope you get way more than 100 subscribers. You have a great blog.


  7. You have some really interesting stuff on your site. My DH and I mounted up debt when we were running our own business. We got out of debt by doing the balance transfers and religiously paying more than the balance due. Now we only have our mortgages and car payment, plus the regular bills. How come your land line bill is $60? We have just basic service — no caller id or any of that other stuff and we don’t do a lot of long distance calling, and it’s nowhere near that high.


  8. Just linking over to you from another site, and glad I’ve found you! :~)
    I have added you to my yahoo feed. Thanks and a very Happy Bloggy Anniversary!!



  9. Congrats on a great first year – you’re really helping a lot of people with your site and blog, especially during these unprecedented hard times — thanks!


  10. Congratulations on your one year blogoversary! May you have many more!!!
    Thank you for hosting this giveaway! It is very generous of you!!! Wishing you continued success!
