2010 in Review

It’s been a great year for Sweating The Big Stuff and I wanted to take today to thank the people who have made it so fantastic as well as to share what I thought were the highlights.

First, let me start off by thanking a few people who have been extremely helpful in various ways.

Brian at My Next Buck was the first person to introduce me to making money blogging, even though his advertising contact made his final payment just the other day. Only 6 months late (I’ll tell you that story later).

Neal at Wealth Pilgrim is always down for a little blog chat, and even when he calls to ask about the Yakezie, it turns into me grilling him on ways to build income.

J Money at Budgets are Sexy introduced me to the world of blogging happy hours and has been a huge help in the monetization department. I also had a guest post at his site which remains one of my favorites.

Financial Engineer has such an intensity for everything he does that I could hear him trying to organize a get together even when he was out of the country on his honeymoon.

Financial Samurai has taught me to push my limits, which I will certainly be doing more of in 2011. Expect to see a few controversial posts that some of you may not agree with.

Crystal at Budgeting in the Fun Stuff has provided me a much needed break from writing 5-6 times a week and there’s no doubt in my mind that my writing and post quality have improved because of it.

Taking a look back, there have been some posts I’m especially proud of and some that gained extra by others. If you haven’t already, I encourage you to take a look at these posts. Some were featured on other blogs, some were chosen as the best of carnivals, and some were simply my favorites that made me proud of my writing.

Happy New Year!
Daniel
