Achievement Unlocked: Fifty Posts, Sixty Days

Fifty Posts, Sixty Days.  That’s what I set out to do when I started this blog two months ago.  I knew there would be days where life would prevent me from getting a post out, so publishing fifty articles sounded difficult, but plausible.  It’s day sixty, and this is my fiftieth post!  This means I can finally sleep!

Fifty Posts, Sixty Days: Abridged Edition

Everyone loves the clip show, right?  That’s the episode where they recycle old content from previous episodes as filler… er… I mean, to make sure everyone is up to date.  Let’s take a look at what I think are the best posts I’ve written over the past two months.  Maybe you missed an article and can catch up!

What Now?

I’m definitely not going to try to write fifty posts in the next sixty days, that’s for sure!  I’m going to take my time a little bit and will try to get about two really thoughtful posts out every week from now on.  I’ll work to improve my presence on Twitter and Facebook (I hope you’re following me on both!).  I want to find the time to work on more destination retirement articles, in particular.  Since they take a lot of research time, I haven’t been able to write as many as I would have liked, but that will change from now on!

Thanks for joining me on the journey so far.  It means so much to me when friends and strangers alike read what I’ve been writing.  I’m humbled and honored to have you here.

    Hey Vagabond,

    I just discovered your site. As a longtime blogger myself, I just want to say: you’re killin’ it. I just got into personal finance and the info here is right up my alley. Can’t believe you put all this together in a few months. Keep it up! You’ve earned at least one new reader.
