Celebrating 1 Year of Distilled Dollar

March 14, 2016 was the day I officially launched, so this week we are celebrating 1 year of Distilled Dollar!

Celebrating 1 Year of Distilled Dollar Space Jam

I had posted in January of that year for the first time, but didn’t tell anyone about the site. Somehow, I still managed to get 5 visitors in my first month, but that may have mostly been a combination of laptops between myself and my fiancee.

It’s been an amazing year of learning and building readership. Distillers, we can’t thank you enough for supplying the demand and urging us to deliver meaningful content week after week.

What topics would you want to see more often? (you can select more than one option)

I love writing on a few core topics, so I’m also wondering if you prefer to see the site stay consistent at three articles a week.

How often do you want to see new posts?

Thanks again for making it a great year on the site!

Be sure to check out this great interview dropping tomorrow on our Podcast. We’ve booked more guests and we’re thrilled at crossing the 80K downloads mark. Thanks for listening!

I’ll be dropping a few more awesome posts soon, including another net worth update where it looks like we’ll be having another record breaking quarter.

Here’s to another great year!

      Haha! I actually had “5 or more” as an option but the fiancee/proofreader knocked it out lol

    Congratulations on making it through your first year! I look forward to seeing more of the same great content!

    (also it’s the blogger equivalent to a baby boom around here. So many March blogiversarys lol!)

    • Distilled Dollar Mar 17, 2017, 11:43 am

      Thanks! Ya, I noticed it looks like our blogiversarys are one day apart, although you have an extra year of wisdom on me! 🙂
