Weekly Stir: 12/23/2018

What a week! I posted a lot of new content on the site and tweaked the layout/design of the home page. I also refactored the taxonomy structure to reflect the content I want to focus on.

My goal is to post at least 3-4 articles per week. I’m not getting much traffic yet, but I’m still motivated! I forgot how slow it can be in the beginning. But I’m enjoying seeing how much my writing is improving. I’m learning new tools that I will share in future posts.

Andrea and I have today through the 1st off from work. My plan is to spend time writing content and making tweaks to the design and config of this site.

Financial Update

This week we did well with our budget. At the beginning of the month we spent a little more than expected on groceries, so we cut back this week so we would have enough for the holiday break. One area that I feel we are lacking is not preparing enough for Christmas and Birthday gifts year round. But we usually pivot to handle the costs from other categories. We have a little over a week left in the month, and we will be one month away from hopefully being able to pay off our last personal loan!

The transfer from Betterment to Vanguard with our small 401k rollover is almost completed. They sent an email saying the money was deposited and should be available within 48 hours in the money market account. I’m not sure when I’m going to put that back into the stock market, but I have some thoughts I will share in future posts.

I hope everyone has a great holiday and happy new years!
