Happy Wednesday folks! Just a quick post here this morning to announce that today marks the official 3 year birthday of My Personal Finance Journey! Wooohooo! If my site was a child, he or she would be causing all sorts of mischief at this point! 🙂

It all started 1095 (Wow! That sounds like a lot of days!) days ago with a simple little post about a $30 sign up bonus offer for the Chase Amazon Credit Card. Coincidentally, I still have that credit card and use it for all of my Amazon purchases. It provides a pretty nice cash back feature too, as I discussed the other day in my financial accounts and tools post!

Since that first post on January 16th, 2010, here at My Personal Finance Journey, we’ve had about 300,000 visitors and 811 total posts (290 posts during 2012). It’s been a great ride, and I look forward to another successful year of learning and interacting with all of you.

To celebrate reaching the 3 year mark on this site, I’m giving away ~$52 as part of the ongoing monthly 10% blog income give back project. Be sure to hop on over to that post to enter to win and help a charity all at the same time!

Thanks again for all your support!
