Wow. That’s great.

One of my main goals for May was to publish on every single day of the month. With the assistance of my staff writers, I hit the goal (after missing a couple of days in April).

I’m looking forward to seeing your eBook. I’m also readying an electronic gift for my loyal readers. It will probably hit the shelves in July, with plans for periodic subsequent volumes.

I like the weight loss challenge. Contests, in general, are fun, and this one will have good health effects for the participants. What a bunch of losers – I mean that in the best sense :)

This is just such an awesome addition to a blog like this. Not only are you getting quality content constantly, you are also getting updated on how Man vs. Debt is doing. Love it. Keep these reports up. Please!

Congrats, Baker! No surprises here! I’d also like to grow my subscriber base as well as unique visitors this month. I’m hoping to at least double my subscribers from where they are now, and get more referrals from other great sites like this one! Now that my theme is fixed, I hope I should be able to do this no problem.
