Welcome to the weekend!!

I’ve made a few changes with the blog by changing the font and changing my vision for where I want to go with Financially Poor.

I want to be forward thinking and not focus on the fundamentals of Personal Finance. I’m going to be focused on helping you gain financial freedom by increasing your income and living a stress free life by living it the way you want.

I hope you enjoy where I’m taking this and I enjoy constructive criticism, so feel free to let me know your thoughts in the comments or shoot me an email.

Welcome to 2011. How are your new goals doing so far? I’ve started P90X and was lucky enough to break my resistance band the first day I use it….cool. I have a new one on the way and will doing the videos that don’t involve bands in the mean time. I can feel the burn from the first day and can tell I’m going to enjoy it a lot. I will do an update post once I finish.

I also recently asked several of you, What is your biggest question or problem with coupons? I had a lot of great responses and even gave away an gift card (one of the perks of signing up for my weekly newsletter). I took the most common issues and answered them in a video. Check out the video at How to use coupons.

It’s Christmas Eve so that means Santa’s coming!! Who’s excited? I know I am.

Santa came early for me and got me Dragon NaturallySpeaking which is really amazing software. It is perfect for writing blog posts because all I have to do is talk and it writes. I tried out this software a long time ago and I can say it has come a long way and is real accurate and doesn’t take that much time to set up. I’m a real fan. So check that out if you write a lot.

I’m also happy to announce that I finally broke 80,000 in the Alexa rankings. Took a little longer than I thought but I’m there. Thank you all for helping and be sure to download the free Alexa Toolbar to help me out.

Check out the first link of my Likes below for a free digital copy of The 4-hour Workweek. I’ve never read it before so I downloaded a copy and I’m enjoying it thoroughly.

If you haven’t yet, be sure to sign up for weekly updates by email or daily updates by RSS. And don’t forget about Liking me on Facebook and checking out my new book Your Guide To Investing.

Also, be sure to join hundreds of others in changing their lives by signing up for my free Financial Freedom eCourse.

Have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone. See ya next week.
