Best of Automatic Finances: October/November 2009

by Jason Unger

Let me start this post off with an apology.

If you’ve been regularly visiting Automatic Finances, or subscribe via our RSS feed or Twitter, you’ve certainly noticed that the number of posts has slowed down. Significantly.

Quite frankly, it’s my fault. I’ve been lax about updating the site throughout the past month, as a number of (thankfully, all positive) changes have occurred in my life. First up, I started a new job (read the full press release here).

Second up, I’ve had to make a pretty big shift in our money management process. It’s all good stuff, but now that we are a single earner household (but not worker, as my wife has the hardest job in the world — raising our daughter), everything is just a little different. And it requires starting a new routine and getting comfortable.

Thankfully, I’ve been at the new gig for more than 6 weeks now, and everything is settling in. So, here I am.

I apologize for the lack of posts from me (and the abrupt end of the Money Management by Personal Finance Bloggers series), but I have to give a major thanks to contributor Fred Siegmund, who has been consistently consistent in providing thoughtful, provocative posts.

So, as we start to return to routine, let’s get the show started with a look at the Best of Automatic Finances for October and November, 2009.
