It is hard to believe, but today is the five-year anniversary of The Paycheck Chronicles. Thank you all for reading! It has been an interesting trip and I am looking forward to the future. I appreciate you, the readers, your comments, emails, Facebook likes, and every other form of contact that we have. On the rare occasion that I get to meet y’all, it is so amazing for me.
When I started writing this blog, I had illusions that I would be debating the best TSP funds and the best mortgages. I do occasionally get to write about those topics, but I’ve discovered that most of us have more pressing issues, such as:
- when is the next payday?
- do Lowes and Home Depot offer veterans discounts?
- how does BAH work when you are both in the military?
- what states offer cash bonuses for veterans?
- what is the commissary rewards card?
The payday question really surprised me, but it has been the overwhelming favorite. Including all associated posts, there have been well over a half-million views of payday-related answers. Shazaam! And the Home Depot and Lowes veterans discounts? Oh, there is so much to say. But I’m glad we’re having the conversation.
I’ve also discovered how much I don’t know. I regularly get questions that baffle me, and require some serious research. While I can’t always respond to every email, I do try, and I use the questions that I receive to help me figure out what to write so that I am helping the most people at one time.
Please continue to let me know what you like, what you hate, and what subjects interest you. You are the reason that I write this blog, and I want to make sure that I am meeting your needs as much as possible.
