Holiday Message

No matter what your religious beliefs, Nate and I would like to take a moment to wish you and yours a very wonderful Holiday season. We’d also like to thank you for all your have done in helping the people that visit. Whether it is commenting on this blog, writing your own blog, participating in the forums or just lurking, it’s all of you that make the community the helpful place that it is and we are always amazed at the job everyone does in explaining to those that are seeking information on how to save money and improve their finances.

For as big as we have gotten, there is still an extremely friendly and helpful tone that we attribute to all of you. Most sites that grow begin to have conflicts that can easily turn to flame wars, but we are impressed at the way that the members are able to make their points even when they disagree without it deteriorating into name calling. It is one of the things that sets SavingAdvice apart from the many other sites on the web and we feel extremely fortunate that it has turned out this way.

With the coming of the New Year, there will likely be an influx of new people coming to learn more about their finances and we hope that all of you will help all the newcomers with any questions they may have. Most of all, we look forward to spending another year getting your points of view, discussing different ways to manage finances and finding new ways to make our dollars go further. Happy Holidays.

Jeffrey & Nate

    You guys have profited nicely through everyone participating in the forum too, because of all the google ads you place on the side bars too. Merry Christmas!!

    Actually, if you take the number of hours that we have devoted to the sites and blogs and divide it by what we have earned, we have not broken minimum wage. That’s not a complaint. When we started, we never thought we would make anything on the website (all those google ads in the sidebar didn’t even exist back then and there wasn’t any indication that there would be a way to make money from blogs and websites at that time). I’m not sure when you look at it from that perspective that you can say we are profiting nicely, but then that was never the primary goal (although both of us are very pleased that what originally was a fun project for us has become big enough to allow us both to devote our full time to it) and if you count being able to do what you love as part of the “profit” then we have both profited even more than nicely.

    The main goal was always to build a place where people could find information, discuss and consider new ideas on how to make their money go farther. While we provided a place and tools where people could do that, we could have never accomplished the goal alone and the members here are what make the site what it is. We appreciate that there are many others that share what they have learned with others on this site to help get their finances in order because when it comes right down to it, there are many different approaches that still can get you to your financial goals. A wide range of perspectives and thoughts are what the community provides that we could never do on our own. It was a simple recognition and appreciation of that fact that we wanted to send out the holiday greeting to all.

    Wishing both of you a Happy Holiday as well. I enjoy this blog because it offers a range of opinions. I don’t always agree with them, but it’s always good to take them in, consider them and form a viewpoint with more information. I’m looking forward to another year of reading!

    I am pleased to be a member of our “little” community and would like to thank you for all your hard work at putting it together and keeping it going. You should be very proud!
    I am looking forward to a New Year and new goals for myself, with encouragement and advice from my lovely “bloggy” friends!
    Happy Holidays, guys!
