February has been a frustrating month for me in the blogosphere, for reasons I cannot disclose at the moment - although I probably will be able to Friday. My stats are down, too, but not as bad as they used to be.
I was able to publish five posts this month:
- Fixing My Wife’s Timex Ironman Watch
- January 2019 Book Reading List
- How Marginal Tax Rates Affect Effective Rates
- Second Half 2018 Merch by Amazon Sales Report
- How Do You Report Virtual Currency Transactions to the IRS?
I also have some new “sections” on this site that aren’t blog posts per se:
- Blog post archive which is a little different than my “sitemap” page in that you can link to a specific month or a specific year.
- Comment archive with every comment on this blog on one page. The comments might not make 100% sense without context, but it’s more for me to be able to find comments quickly if I so desire.
- Featured section where I attempt to archive places that backlink this site.
- Referral links section where I list referral links that might make me money if you click on them - most of them are redirects.
A few of these have existed for several months now. I’m just now remembering to mention them on one of my monthly blog stat posts.
