Cents of a Country Girl is 1!

It’s my blogging birthday!

It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year since I started Cents of a Country Girl and joined the personal finance blogging community. From the get-go, everyone has been supportive and encouraging, for which I am very grateful. I started my blog, inspired by the likes of Give Me Back My Five Bucks, and Fabulously Broke in the City, with the hopes of bringing a bit of country (redneck?) perspective to personal finance. I set out with no particular goals in mind, other than to post consistently in hopes of improving my writing skills and keep myself accountable to my financial goals. My goals for the blog haven’t changed much since I started it – looking forward, I want to keep blogging regularly but also become more active in the pf community. I’d like to write a few more guest posts, go to a pf conference and comment more on other pf blogs. Given that, I also hope to learn about time management. I will have a giveaway in the near future, so keep an eye out for that!

Having a blog sure makes it easy to look back at what’s happened over the last year. Here’s some highlights from year one at Cents of a Country Girl:

In addition to those highlights, there were some big events in my life that happened in the past year:

  • I became debt free
  • I bought my first house
  • A tornado hit the town I work in
  • Won some blue ribbons for baking at the local fall fair (including a carrot cake that was auctioned off for $220)

Not bad for one year, I suppose. I’m not celebrating my blogging birthday per say, no contest or anything like that (unless you want leftover spaghetti). My blog birthday does coincide with posting a photo of myself for the photo challenge, so there’s something – you can see what Country Girl looks like, if you so desire. I think I will mark one year of blogging by attempting to make my own laundry soap – frugal fun!

Have a good ‘un

    Happy blogging birthday! To be honest, I can’t believe it’s only been 1 year. Feels like we’ve been in this for a lot longer than that… but I can’t wait to see what the next year holds for you!

  5. Happy birthday, Country Girl! i really enjoy your blog. I have you on my blogroll, too. If you would like to reciprocate, I would appreciate it 🙂
