What a year. Memories were made, countries were visited, relationships were made, businesses were started. 2012 was possibly the busiest year of my life. I had a lot going on and I am proud of what has happened. Here are some highlights from the blog and elsewhere.
As we move through the holiday season, many people take a few minutes to stop thinking about themselves and start thinking about giving money to their community. I grew up a big advocate of giving my time rather than my money. As my career has moved forward, I am now more easily able to give money.

A couple weeks ago, I was hanging out with 400 fellow finance bloggers discussing ways to make our sites better and more useful for all of you, our readers. I had the pleasure of planning and speaking at Ignite FinCon, one of our big social events. This was my third Ignite speaking engagement, and I am excited to bring you the video of my big night on stage.
I have spoken at two Ignite events before, Ignite Chanukah and Ignite Denver, and have my third planned for the Financial Blogger Conference in September. I am excited to share with you the awesome video of me telling Denver how to start a blog that doesn't suck. Even if you think your blog is pretty sweet, you can probably learn a thing or two from this talk. Or at least be entertained.

I can't even count the number of money mistakes I've made in my life. Although I recently paid off my mortgage, it didn't come easy or without making mistakes on the way. Now that I look back, there are several things that I should have done differently which would have put me in a better position today. In any case I am still extremely grateful for my mortgage pay off.
