Blog note: I’m currently working on a post about the importance of renewal in the world of personal finance. In the true spirit of that post, I am taking next week “off” to spend some time with family, and to focus on quality writing and improvements to the blog. Rather than inundate you with guest posts, I’m going to let the blog “sleep” for a week. Sit tight…see you on the flip side!
February was filled with awesome writing from my fellow personal finance bloggers. I’d like to take today to highlight some of the posts I enjoyed most from this month:

Things to Check Out
Here are a few things you need to check out if you’re interested in things I’ve been involved with this month:
- I’m continuing to contribute to Untemplater. This month’s post explained how to untemplate your money while focusing on principles.
- I kicked off my contributions to Complete Organizing Solutions with a post on 6 symptoms of disorganized finances.
- I began the month as a participant in Financial Samurai’s Yakezie Alexa Challenge. The goal was to break the top 200,000 sites ranked by Alexa in 6 months. Well, I actually outpaced that by about 5 months. My current Alexa rank has shot up to 183,225 as of Saturday! If you want to participate or track everyone’s progress, check out this page at Sweating the Big Stuff. (By the way, I’m now in the “trying to break 100,000 group!”).
- I also need to give a shout-out to Cash Money Life for hosting a Carnival of Personal Finance last month with one of my posts.
