It’s been extremely busy in the PFD household lately. In addition to the usual family and full-time job duties keeping me busy, we’re also adding on to our house (thank you Discover for timing the home improvement bonus with our schedule!) and we just started homeschooling as well. All of which is to say, I haven’t had nearly as much time for either posting or for reading cool blogs as I’d like.
About the blogs: I don’t know if it’s due to the fact that I don’t spend as much time looking for material as I used to, but it seems like there aren’t as many new points and miles blogs popping up these days as there were a few years ago. The only ones I can think of from the past year or so are Oren’s Money Saver and Money Metagame, both of which have some good stuff. Am I missing out? Are there other new blogs worth reading? Please comment below. If you’ve recently started a blog, or if you have an obscure blog nobody reads, feel free to plug yourself here.
And while I’m talking about blogging: bloggers both new and old should read this piece: The insanely slow road to building a blog (and why most people give up). Heck, you non-bloggers should read it too. Endurance is an important trait to have for bloggers; I still remember the first few months with single-digit daily pageviews. Blogging’s a lot easier if you really like what you’re doing. You can do it if you’re mostly motivated by money, but it won’t be nearly as much fun.
So anyway: who’s got a new blog for me to check out?
