Sunday Morning Comments

August 28, 2005

I still haven’t totally figured out how to move all my posts from the old blog to this blog. I hope to get that done later today. The directions for doing so are pretty confusing and I sure don’t want to mess it up and lose 10 months worth of work.

I did change my Feedburner settings so those who subscribed to the old blog will now be directed to this blog. I don’t know if I can change my Bloglines feeds. I’ll have to look into it.

I’ll be hosting the Carnival of Personal Finance on this blog tomorrow.

Gotta run. I’ll post more later.

Welcome to the brand new site for AllThingsFinancial. I’m currently in the process of getting this site set up . Once I’m finished, the new site will look nothing like this.

If by chance you got here because of the Wall Street Journal article featuring blogs, you can check out my other blog that is still up and running. Click here to go to the other AllThingsFinancial
