Why Did You Buy That?

Nothing like the holiday season to get you all in your feelings about money and materialism.  My desire to be location independent and my disdain for Suzie Homemaking introduced me to minimalism which eventually helped me to not get caught up in the madness that is Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

I may not buy anything, but I still like to look and dream.

Mondays with Melissa is hosted on the Blubrry platform using the Blubrry Powerpress plugin. Podcasting is an ambitious undertaking, and I don’t know that I would’ve been able to pull off five days of podcasting without the seamless integration that is Blubrry offers with its WordPress plugin. I still have a lot to learn about podcasting and much to improve on, but as a beginner who is learning as I go along, Blubrry makes it easy to keep up and keep going. If you’ve been enjoying this podcast and thinking about launching your own, I invite you to check out Blubrry’s podcast hosting service. You’ll get a month for free to upload your show and figure out the ins and outs of podcasting.  Click here to sign up, and let me know how it ends up working out for you.
