Strangely, January 31st seems like the day for celebration—like New Year’s Eve. I can’t quite think why, but has been a good month for a lot of things, especially this blog.

Visitor numbers almost doubled (and I thought last month was great…)! Thanks once again to all the new subscribers! If you’re enjoying the site but haven’t subscribed through RSS, consider using this link to subscribe in a reader. Or if you don’t use an RSS reader, you can sign up here to be e-mailed every time I update (if you be brave enough to handle my frequent posting).

As for my monthly goal of earning $250 through various blog-related methods, I fell a little short but I may reach it next month. My year goal of earning $2000 after tax per month doesn’t kick in until April. We’re getting there.

Some highlights from the blog….

I hosted two of the biggest personal finance carnivals this month:

Carnival of Personal Finance #134 — Building on the Basics Edition

Festival of Frugality #110 — Simple Categories Edition

At the beginning of this month, I was interviewed by Jim at Blueprint for Financial Prosperity.

I reflected that I shouldn’t be ashamed that I can’t afford new clothes right now. Mine are quite suitable and in good repair.

My more recent post on the expense of bridesmaids’ dresses got quite a bit of traffic and response. Apparently it is indeed as universal a concern as I’d thought.

Happy almost February! How was your month?

Hey, Mrs. M,

That’s just fantastic! I’m seeing some great growth on my site as well, but I can only aspire to be as successful as you’ve been so far!

How was my month? Hmmm… well, disastrous is a good adjective that quickly comes to mind. I met some goals and failed some others, but I did it with flair, is all I have to say!
On the other had, I did have a little over 700 unique site visitors this month, my very first full month of blogging.
