[In this series, I’m reviewing some of my better posts of 2007. If you started reading this blog in the middle of the year, this is a good time to catch up.]
To begin the month of March, I made some large purchases. It made me think that I should amortize my possessions. I intended to take inventory of the potential purchases and make a list of future purchases. I should really put this back on my to-do list so that we can anticipate future expenses better.
I announced a new business, which never left the starting blocks. Blogging along with my full time job was more than enough. Blogging is more time-consuming than you might think. For every article you read, there is likely to be 3-4 hours of networking and other related tasks.
I wrote about why so many good business ideas never get started – they try to be too perfect.
I hosted the Carnival of Personal Finance #92.
I spent a whole week writing about Prosper, culminating with my keys to Prosper Success. The strategy has done better, but I’m not sure it’s as fool-proof as I original thought.
I wrote about the twelve reasons I will be rich as well as the three reasons I will not be rich. I’m making great strides in improving myself in those three areas.
At the end of the month, I wrote about my trip to visit Mint headquarters. I did a bit of beta testing for them and I like to think my suggestions found their way into the final product.

Lazy Man, I’m curious about your web-baseball business idea. The post was kind of vague. What were the details? I remember there was a contest in a really old issue of Gamepro many many years ago and it was for new game ideas. I sent mine in””it was a really detailed idea for a MMORP-type game (like Ultima Online, the only game of its kind at the time) but for baseball.
I didn’t win and the ideas that did weren’t all that original. But lo and behold, I saw this (http://www.ultimatebaseballonline.com/) about a year later and was shocked! They even used the same name I had submitted! I emailed the magazine about it and they said they had no clue about it.
