So, after the weekend+ of strength and weakness, fun and frivolity and outright absurdity, we have some things which are still hanging about like the sleeve out of the suitcase…
Stand up and be counted.
I wrapped up the savings poll. Some interesting numbers there:
4% of you are borrowing from savings, banks, retirement or family.
52% are just making enough to make ends meet.
13% are saving under $1,000.
Another 13% are saving between $1,000 and $4,999.
9% are saving between $5,000 and $9,999.
9% are saving over $10,000
So, I have to ask…do we go back to more practical ways of saving money as a sideline to the blog? I know we have better discussions when we do not talk money, but I see some need among those reading. Remember, these numbers are mixed between the online survey and the real life interviews I do.
The Search for M3
On this week’s SEP you got a chance to vote for which search term brings the most people to M3. By the comments the most popular search term was “naughty bedtime clipart”. Seriously, if you have not seen the list, go. Hurry. But do not have coffee in your mouth. “Finger flushing toilet” came in second.
The winner is: Slacker at work. Now, if you ever doubted SEO tactics, this one is the prime example. One stinking article written on the subject. If you did not see Monday’s announcement of where the blog stands and is headed, you cannot appreciate how idiotic this really is. *Shrugs*
Double Latte, Extra Shot with a Twist
M3 is going to rearrange the furniture soon. The Library will be opening. The M3 Coffee Shoppe has been such a success the original featured authors and musicians will be moving to leave the Coffee Shoppe just for the featured artists. Stop by and see what is new with Roger Smith, Robin Badillo and Come Back Buddy. While you are there, pull up a rocker, grab a cuppa and open a new book or simply listen to some great music.
Caring is Sharing
I want to extend a very heartfelt thank you to the many visitors who are sharing what they read at M3 with their social networks on Facebook, Twitter, Linked.In, Digg and Google+. I am a member at all of these sites and am always flattered when I see a post from M3 on your pages. If you have not networked with me in these spaces, stop by About Momma for links to find me.
Headed for a Million
If you really think about it and you have read all the posts so far, you have already read the equivalent of a novel and a half. M3 is 81,ooo+ words in on the way to 1,000,000. And no, that does not include the nearly 30,000 words in the comments. So, if you read all the comments you have read two. I want you to stick around to watch the meter fill up and inspire me to reach a million words on M3.
Than being fed something you did not order. I am asking you…
What would you like M3 to cover over the next few months?
