The Emotional Cost of Bad Credit

Was one of your New Year’s resolutions to save more money? Yeah. It ranks up there with

  • Eat healthy
  • Exercise more
  • Improve life

It’s hard, though, isn’t it?

You know what? You’re not alone. When I started sharing about my bad credit experiences, I was overwhelmed with supportive and encouraging comments. So many of you were or are in the same boat, and didn’t know it.

We think we’re alone and headed for a comedy of errors like Gilligan’s Island.

But the truth is, while our individual situations are unique, we have the opportunity to throw life rafts to each … read the rest. . .

“What’s the Word?” Wednesday: November 14, 2012

We’re one day away from being halfway through November. It’s been a busy first two weeks around here! I’ve been baring my soul, earning my keep, and all things in between. Right now I’m fighting a cold with the help of vinegar and Vicks (no, not together!).

Thanksgiving comes early this year. Does that mean we have an extra week in the holiday season? I hope so! I’m so ready to get this Party started!

Let’s make this week’s “What’s the Word?” more interactive. For every post you link up, leave a question in the comments. Something you’ve always wanted … read the rest. . .

Destination Station!

As some of you know, I’ve recently been writing reviews for Trekaroo. I love finding little and big places to review. My mental checklist lights up like a neon sign everywhere I go:

Is it family friendly? How expensive is it? What’s the average age range? Is it clean/fun/educational?

I also love reading reviews from other people. Whether it’s a 140-character Tweet or a hundred-page historical guide, I love reading reviews and viewing photos about travel.

So I thought, wouldn’t it be fun to host a link-up where others can share their travel experiences for all to see?

I’m … read the rest. . .

What’s the Word? Wednesday (Blog Hop): May 16, 2012

It’s that time of the week again! Time to all get together from our individual corners of the blogosphere and tell what’s on our minds.

What’s the Word? Wednesdays is a linky that allows other bloggers to share whatever is on their minds that they want to talk about. Think of it as a virtual coffee date with some great friends. What’s going on in your world? Tell us all about it!

This week has no theme. Just think of it as a chance to get everyone caught up with what you want to say. Feel free to link up … read the rest. . .

Lovin’ Comment Luv

I did it. I made the leap over to Comment Luv.

Disqus was nice for keeping track on what I posted as comments elsewhere, and seeing what other comments people posted as well. But overall, I like the friendliness of Comment Luv better.

I like that you don’t have to be a registered user to post a comment. I love that fellow bloggers can link to their own great posts.

It’s just a better community.

And, to my enjoyment, I realized I still have access to old Disqus comments because I only deactivated it, I haven’t deleted it. I just … read the rest. . .
