Merry Christmas 2011!

It’s Friday, and Christmas is this Sunday – I can’t believe how quickly it arrived! This will be our second Christmas on the Wealth Artisan, and I have to say that I’m truly thankful to have this website and you as a reader.

I love being able to help people, and I love knowing that on a daily basis, 24 hours each day, my articles and information are accessible for free to help people.

Writing for the Wealth Artisan is something that I genuinely enjoy. While I may not be able to quantify the number of people, if I’ve helped only one person on this Earth, then the nearly 2 years of writing articles was completely worth it.

I hope, even in some small way, that your Christmas might be happier, safer, or more relaxing because of something you’ve read on We’ve covered so many different topics and the breadth of the content has expanded to include more information about personal finance, businesses and entrepreneurship.

Your Opinion Counts!

If there is anything that you feel Wealth Artisan is missing, or something you would like to see more/less of, then let me know in the comments. I’m always trying to find ways to improve things so your ideas are welcome. I know it is a bit more difficult to leave comments now because of the new commenting system, but this has also weeded out over 98% of the spam comments I was receiving.

This has made the comments I do receive a lot more useful to you, and prevents real comments from getting swept away in my mass delete of spammy comments (I couldn’t read through 3,000+ spam comments to find the real ones).

Merry Christmas

From my family to yours, I hope you have a very safe, blessed, enjoyable, relaxing, memorable, and Merry Christmas. Even if there aren’t as many presents under the tree because of the finances, try to think of the reasons there are to be thankful. Merry Christmas!

    Congrats on making it to a second Christmas with your blog! It’s looking great. Thanks also for not following the politically correct route by not saying “happy holidays!” I loathe that. Hope you and yours have a very Merry Christmas! Safe travels to you.

      And a Merry Christmas to you and yours as well. I’m a Christian, and I celebrate Christmas. I’m not into political correctness. In fact, I believe it is a large reason why we can’t get anything done in this country. No one is allowed to have differing viewpoints, nothing can be discussed and openly challenged.

      Political correctness today seems to indicate that if you and someone else disagree, it is not to be discussed, but rather you should mutually agree to disagree so there is no conflict. In a world like that, you have a net gain of progress that equals 0.

      Until we can get the guts to admit that there are religions, there are differing points of view, and nothing can be made OK but purposefully distilling all beliefs into a generic, politically correct phrase, or intellectual draw, our country will continue to fall apart.

      Sorry for the deviation, but I feel entirely the same as you: I loathe it. Wish me a merry Christmas, or wish me a good day, but “happy holidays” is a farce of a statement.
