For those interested, I can now be followed on Twitter as user richerbytheday. I plan to use Twitter for more interactive discussions and topics that don’t warrant entire blog posts. Twitter followers will also be eligible for free book giveaways and other promotions. For anyone who hasn’t used Twitter, it is a social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read other users’ updates known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 bytes in length. Updates are displayed on the user’s profile page and delivered to other users who have signed up to receive them. To create a free account, go to twitter.com. Then you can go to my profile page and “follow” me to keep in touch.

Richer by the Day is once again listed in the Fire Finance Top 100 Personal Finance Blogs. Traffic on Richer by the Day increased from 2352 visitors in February to 2502 visitors in March. Based on Sitemeter data, this blog was ranked 57th in the latest rankings. Thanks to all of my visitors.
I finally got around to creating my blogroll, which is located on the sidebar below my category list. Rather than just add the blogroll, I thought I’d share my rationale behind adding each of these sites. There are a lot of other good sites out there, many of which I read. I’ll probably add more of them to my blogroll as time goes by, but the ones below mostly have specific reasons for being included.
Today, I will make my first post in a new series called Freaky Financial Fridays. For these posts, I intend to argue the opposing view to my personal opinion or a piece of generally accepted financial advice. My goal is not to show how ludicrous the opposing view is, but rather to try to make genuine arguments in favor of that view. Personal situation greatly influences which course of action is best, so it’s likely that some people will find this information applicable. Even if you do not, looking at things from another angle may help to strengthen your own opinion. I intend to write a post for this series a few times a month. If nothing else, this series should prove to be entertaining.
This month Richer by the Day made it’s debut in the FIRE Finance Top 100 Personal Finance Blogs. Rankings are based on page views from a variety of sources. Using Sitemeter, Richer by the Day was ranked number 52 and using Quantcast it was ranked number 82. Either way, I’m excited to be listed in the top 100 and hope to improve my rank in the coming months. I’m proud that this blog, which was only started a few months back, has already achieved such success. That success can be mainly attributed to my readers, whom I sincerely thank for their patronage.
