Mid October 2012 Blog Update 33 Comments
So I’ve now been at my new job for over 2 weeks. It’s really going quite well. I’ve got good coworkers, a sweet office and supportive bosses. Even just working full time again feels satisfying.
My generous bosses are even going to hook me up with the new smart phone that I had been tempted to buy. It sure paid off not rushing that decision. Now instead of having an increased cell phone bill, I get the exact phone I wanted all covered by my employer. I doubt they’re reading my blog, but thanks! This afternoon I should be the proud owner of a new Samsung Galaxy S3. I can’t wait!
I guess after 2 weeks of working there they’ve decided that they’re happy with my work so far and want to keep me around long term. Plus they must have really felt bad about how crappy my current phone is. I’m thinking I’m pretty lucky to have scored this job.
There’s not much to report on the blogging front. Traffic dipped a little bit since I stopped commenting on other blogs, but anyone could’ve guessed that development. I’m not too concerned about it though. Traffic is still quite high and I still get bloggers telling me that I’m sending them lots of traffic.
Modest Money Around The Web
Instead of worrying about current traffic my focus has shifted more to links and social media. As long as both of those keep chugging along, I’m happy. Basically that should mean that my snowball is still rolling downhill gaining momentum to reach my ultimate blogging goals. So thank you to all of the bloggers who have linked to Modest Money this past week. If you have a link round up on your site and don’t currently link to my blog, get in touch with me.
