  1. Thanks for the quick mention. While I hoped to get the site off the ground quickly, we had a death in our immediate family and needed to travel, so hopefully next week my new site will be up and running.

    Thanks FCN!

  2. I saw your trackback on Jeffery’s article about Black Friday ads.

    Since you mentioned “open enrollment” have you talked with your readers about the benefits of a HDHP and HSA accounts and the potential power of letting your savings grow tax-free in a higher interest checking account or mutual fund?

    Just a thought, might be a good article. I work for First Horizon Msaver ( and we specialize in HSAs. Email me if you are interested in more info — could be good for your blog!

    Thanks, Later!
