Wow, today is the 9-month anniversary of this blog’s first real post. I’m sure most of you weren’t around then, so I’ve decided to make a bit of a flashback post collating what I think were interesting highlights of MyMoneyBlog. Here are the first three months:

December
» Opened up my financial life with my first Net Worth post
» Read two books that greatly affected my investing outlook – A Random Walk Down Wall Street, and The Four Pillars of Investing.
» Picked Vanguard as my Retirement Broker

January
» Chose Vanguard Target Retirement 2035 Fund VTTHX for IRA.
» While thinking about where to park my liquid cash to earn the best interest rates, I discovered online banks with high APRs like Emigrant Direct.
» Stirred up the pot talking about “Good” Credit Card Debt, and How To Play the 0% APR Balance Transfer Game.

February
» Decided against buying a house, and moved to a new apartment.
» Started collecting the best no-fee 0% balance transfer offers I could find.
» Found a great free Financial Preparation Kit. Everyone should fill this out.
