Welcome back to another Frugal Friday. This has been, once again, another crazy week. I think I have consumed more coffee this week than I have in the past month put together. It is a good busy though as we have brought on two new clients. (WOO-HOO!) As any business owner would, we are always pleased to add new clients. In this case, we’re particularly excited because these clients help diversify our business and show us our potential for growth. In fact, we discussed the possibility of hiring someone for the first time, which is exciting, but also a little overwhelming to be completely honest. Speaking of business, I had been away from the Taking the Plunge series the last few weeks and will be getting back to it next week. Mrs. Frugal Rules and I have a few posts written and scheduled for the next few weeks and have numerous more that we need to write. If you have anything you’d like to read about in terms of running a business, just let me know and it’ll be added to the requests we’ve received already. If this week was not busy enough, I seemed to have gotten on some spammers’ radar and received quite a few junk emails throughout the week. I use a pretty good plugin that catches the large majority of them but just got slammed this week. It always makes me wonder what goes through someone’s mind to actually spam others. They must have a lot of free time on their hands!

As usual it has been another great week in the blogosphere. While I was not able to read as many blog posts as I would’ve liked I did manage to catch a few. With how busy I have been lately I have rearranged how I read posts a bit to make it easier and more efficient for me. I’ll probably be sharing about that a bit in an upcoming blogging tips post. If you have the time this weekend, I encourage you to check out some of these great blog posts and check out their site some as they all have very valuable things to share.
