Favorite search terms people used to find Rabbit Funds


I have been tracking the keywords that Googlers use to find my site for some time. Every now and then, I see a real gem. Some phrase that makes me think, “Why did Google think my blog had anything to do with that?”

I’ve also learned that there are a lot of liars out there. Here’s a sampling of some of my favorite keywords:

  • “how to stop lying to my wife”
  • “wife overspending lies”
  • “how to stop your wife from lying”
  • “dreiling died 2008 obit” – I’ve never had an obit on my site
  • “my wife stops me training”
  • “lying to wife how to stop”
  • “sell my wife”
  • “why do i overspending and lie”
  • “Virgin of Peace information”
  • “warm inviting financial planning website” – Shucks, thanks!

On a different note, Rabbit Funds had the pleasure of being featured in several carnivals recently. Check them out for some great reading.

Thanks to everyone who selected a Rabbit Funds’ article!

June 4th Round-up: Why I took two weeks off

June 4th Round-up: Why I took two weeks off


As you may or may not have noticed, I did not post anything during the last two weeks. Barring the birth of my second child, I had not missed a single week in the last year.

So I feel that I owe you an explanation.

Week 1: Simply put – I was in Germany working 18 hour days. Needless to say, I didn’t really have any time to blog. Now granted, I should have prepared a post or two before I left so I wouldn’t have to worry about writing anything while in Germany. Asi es la vida.

Week 2: My wife operates a small business as a swim instructor. I am the underpaid CMO, CFO, and CTO.  With summer upon us, there were/are several projects related to her business that needed to be completed. We actually hired our first contracted swim instructor, which was very exciting for us. We are also in negotiations to acquire a competitor. And seeing that her business makes a lot more money than my little blog, my efforts were better placed with her business.

I also took the time to do some soul searching as it relates to my blog. As a result, I have decided to make several changes that will hopefully provide more unique and valuable information to the blogosphere as well as allow me to better support my wife in her endeavors.

What was exciting for me during my “sabbatical” though, was to see the traffic to my site while I wasn’t blogging. As expected, I had fewer visitors but the drop wasn’t significant. In fact, I had one day that was on the high side for me. So thanks for sticking with me!

On an unrelated note, here is a list of blogs that RabbitFunds was featured on recently:

Have a great weekend!

Weekly Round-up: Graduation Week!


Well, after two years and two kids, my wife is finally graduating form college. She had to drop out during her last semester due to having baby #1. But she pushed through and finished her degree this semester.

College StudentsI’m very proud of her.

On a different note, here are a few posts on other blogs from the last week or so worth checking out.

Be on the lookout for an update on our No Spend month. Let’s just say that we are going to have to start again. Sad day.

Weekly Round-up: Week #1 of our No Spend challenge

Weekly Round-up: Week #1 of our No Spend challenge


Today is Day 9 in our No Spend challenge. So far, we are doing pretty good though have spent $10.01 outside of our guidelines. So not perfect, but still better than any other month.

Oops, I did it againMost of that money was spent actually at Red Lobster. We had a $25 gift card and went a little over (though we skipped appetizers, drinks, and dessert).

One lesson that I have learned in the short nine days is that it is easier to not spend when you have a specific goal. So for example, I find myself less likely to dedicate any time to “figuring out” how I can buy something when I know that buying it just isn’t an option.

On a completely unrelated note, I have a couple of articles for your weekend reading. Enjoy!

Have a great weekend!
