My Debt Quest

My quest to become and stay debt free.

MyDebtQuest.com

I have been contemplating setting up a domain for MyDebtQuest for quite some time, and finally decided to bite the bullet and get it done.  I have no grandiose ideas about fame or recognition, but it does feel good to have “my own” weblog on “my own” site.

Please update your links and head over to http://www.mydebtquest.com!
