It’s hard to believe, but our first post on Ironclad Finances was one year ago tomorrow. When we first decided to start this blog, we couldn’t predict what would happen. After kicking around the idea for months, we finally decided it was what we wanted to do. We set a goal of making our first post in July 2010 and then at least once a week. Though we have taken a few vacations, we’ve met our goal, and we’re proud of creating Ironclad Finances and keeping up with it.


For the most part, we’ve enjoyed the work, Dawn as writer, Keith as editor. Though, as anyone out there who writes for a blog (or anything else) likely knows, sometimes you would rather be doing anything else! We feel like we’ve made progress in the writing as far as personality; we know our early posts were rather dry! While we still have a long way to go, we look forward to continuing what we’ve started.


We wanted to thank all of our readers! We hope you’ve found something useful in our posts that you’ve been able to apply to your life. A special thanks to our clients who have been following us. We appreciate the support!


Also, thanks to all the other blogs writers that have shown interest in Ironclad Finances, especially Len at Len Penzo dot Com. We appreciate the support and the readers you’ve sent our way!


So, to wrap up our one year anniversary post, we wanted to share with you our favorite series. It also appears to be our readers’ favorite series, since we have the most views on the following pages! It’s our All Your Worth series that we began posting in January 2011.
