The Economy in Crisis

The economic news keeps getting worse. Lehman Brothers collapse, AIG near collapse, Wamu might be next...blah blah blah. How does it effect me? What am I doing differently?

Nada, nothing, zip, zero, zilch. I will continue to save and pay down debt just like I've been doing before.

You REALLY should be making money off of these blog.

1. Sign up for ad sense and blog ad's along with entre card.
2. Check out Zen Habits, they have your kind of vibe going, but I think you can flip it on some "personal journey" type ish.
3. Check your numbers on sitemeter and feedburner, and see which searches your blog comes up under. You can tailor your posts to fit the searches. THIS is your audience.
4. I want you to make it to $2000. Veteran Blogger

I'm not worried about the US economy because I think these are just growing pains - it is the everyday people who may have lost their jobs or homes in this crisis that I send out good wishes to. I am fortunate that I work with ShoreBank, I think it's ShoreBank's green lending that guarantees its success. Here's more about ShoreBank: I thought your readers would be interested in the HYSA offered with 3.50% APY.

This was a great, short outlook on what you're doing! Just keep trekin'... its all we can do at this point! There is so much turbulence in the market today, and people need peace of mind more than ever. I wanted to offer your readers a link to another blogger who is doing great work. He writes about our 'childhood money messages' and how the best approach to stability in today's market is to resist letting these emotions control our buying/selling habits. It is really fascinating work, and something you should all check out. His name is Spencer Sherman, and you can view his blog at
