Weekly Mashup – Back to the Normal Life

A few people warned me that temporary assignments often times turn into a long-term temporary assignment with more responsibilities and no pay raise. However, as luck would have it, I am back to my normal job two weeks later, just as they told me.

I had a great experience, learned a lot, improved a lot, and hope this helps me out when they start making promotion decisions. My professional policy is to always volunteer for assignments that are in the spotlight and to make sure I do an outstanding job. I think that is what I did here, or so I hope! :)

I would like to thank those of you who helped me out while I was gone: Green Panda Treehouse (ATM Fees: How to Avoid Them and Save Cash), Brandon Laughridge (FHA Financing to Begin Real Estate Investing), and LaToya Irby (up tomorrow) all gave me guest posts. Thanks!

While I was gone, I was also voted as one of the top 10 new personal finance blogs! The article is by Five Cent Nickel at

Thanks again to Green Panda, Brandon, and LaToya for the help with guest posts. I am happy to say I am back to my normal sleep schedule, too! I was getting tired of that 5am-5pm work schedule, haha :)
