Blogoversary Eve...

March 11th, 2012 at 01:48 am

Tomorrow will mark six years for me here at savings advice. WOW. Each year, on the eve of my blogoversary, I send out an invite to all of you who read the blogs, but have never signed up and joined us. (I believe the term is lurkers, but I have never liked that term...)

This is an amazing group of frugal folks...from novice to pro...I have gained so much knowledge from my time here.

But to me, more importantly, I have developed some INCREDIBLE friendships in these past six years. We have celebrated together, cried together, and saved together...I am hoping next month to meet up with one of our fellow bloggers when my daughter and I go to Boston/New York!! (My very first meet with a fellow blogger!)...and hope to meet another in July when she comes to the west coast.

For those of you pondering whether or not to join, I say with great confidence to do will be supported on your financial journey!! And you might even make some great new friends!!

I love that I have a record of 1000 blogs for the past six years as my family grew with grandbabies...and with the final months with my parents...entries to remind me of the good times, and struggles, and events of daily life!

To all of our savings advice family...THANK YOU for all of the friendship, hugs and support the last 6 has been AMAZING - and I look forward to many many more years to come.

Again...if you are thinking about it...JUST DO IT...we enjoy our newbies...and learning about you!!

    Hppy Blogoversary! I have enjoyed your posts so much.

  12. frugaltexan75 Says:

    MM - I'll be in San Jose part of the time - my brother will be picking me up from there to go to his place. Smile So a San Jose meetup could work. Smile Second week of July.

  13. Thrifty Ray Says:

    Im not sure which week Boomeyers will be in town...I will find out for sure..What fun it would be if we could do a group meet up!!!

  14. Thrifty Ray Says:

    I checked the dates and around the 14-16 might work for Boo too. I can do that weekend...Big Grin I will confirm with Boo and let you know for sure.

  15. MonkeyMama Says:

    Wait, so all three of you are going to be in Northern California in July? Seriously? Keep me in the loop!

    @FT - Maybe Napa is closer anyway. You guys are all traveling far, so just tell me where/when - I will be there! {I just assumed Sacramento since Ray's son is here now?}.

  16. Swimgirl Says:

    Happy Blogoversary! I took a long "vacation" from posting, but would love to meet, too!

  17. Thrifty Ray Says:

    I can fly into Oakland/San Fran really cheaply and then rent a Im in...

    Swimgirl, are you in No Cali too?

  18. MonkeyMama Says:

    Swimgirl is near Sacramento.

  19. Swimgirl Says:

    Yes! I'm near Sacramento!

  20. frugaltexan75 Says:

    I'm pretty flexible with my dates - haven't made any reservations yet. I'd been planning on visiting my dad (S CA) June 30 - July 8, then my brother July 9 - 13, but I can easily add a few days to my brother, or go see my dad a few days later ... I'd love to meet up with ya'll!! Napa or San Jose or San Francisco would all work - I know my brother would be willing to take me wherever I need to go. (Or I could probably get my Uncle to do it, or possibly borrow a car ...) So ... whatever dates/places work best for everyone else, let me know. Big Grin Maybe we could meet at Ghiradelli's in San Fran. MMMmmmmMMM! Big Grin

    This sounds like fun! Remember to take pictures -- blurry, faraway, privacy-protecting pictures. Wink

  22. LuckyRobin Says:

    I'm coming up on mine next month, I think it is. I started not too long after you and always looked forward to reading what you wrote.

  23. Looking Forward Says:

    I'd be up to meet too if you all would have me. Smile I'm about an hour from San Fran, 90 min to Sac or 30 min to Napa.

  24. Thrifty Ray Says:

    Absolutely LF...I say the more the merrier!! We would LOVE to have you join us!!

  25. Looking Forward Says:

    Big Grin

  26. frugaltexan75 Says:

    This is going to be a blast! Big Grin

  27. Thrifty Ray Says:

    yes it is!! I can fly in on the 12th and home on the these dates work for everyone??? so we could get together on the 13-14???

  28. frugaltexan75 Says:

    Either day is good for me Smile

  29. Swimgirl Says:

    Friday the 13th?! Awesome! Actually, either day will work just fine... Fun! Fun! Fun!

  30. Swimgirl Says:

    Looking Forward... trying to figure out the location based on those distances! What a puzzle...

  31. Monkey Mama Says:

    Yes, 13th or 14th is fine.

  32. Looking Forward Says:

    Let me know which day - I'll do my best to make it!

    Swimgirl - Look north of SF and west of both Sac. and Napa.
