"Money Maus" or, About this Blog!

Some of my readers might be wondering where the name of my blog came from. Well, ever since I was a child, my Mom always called me Maus. 'Maus' is German for 'mouse' and yes, it's pronounced exactly the same! This is because I have always been small/petite and at 22, I am full-grown at 4'10"... Since this is a pf blog, I added 'money' onto the nickname and thus came up with my blog title. :)

Blog changes: You'll notice I got rid of the previous layout and changed up the colors on this one. (FYI, my favorite color is blue.) Plus, I started playing around with widgets and created the "Emergency Fund" progress bar in the right-hand column, as well as adding more PF blog links and the RSS feeds! This is all thanks to my copious amounts of down-time as I recover from getting my wisdom teeth out yesterday morning.

I've also spent most of today reading A Random Walk Down Wall Street by Burton Malkiel and many other pf blogs I've come across. I'll write a review of the book in the next few weeks when I finish it.

Hi Money Maus,

Thanks for checking out my blog :)

Congrats to you on finding a job in finance! I know all too well how difficult a task that is in today's market - I graduated in 2007 with a finance degree and worked in investment banking in NY and SF, but I quit after half a year when I saw many of my co-workers get laid off.

Keep the posts coming! I've added you to my blogroll.

Hey, I just found your blog. Great site.

My dad used to call me "Mighty Maus" (yep, German version) because I liked the show so much.

I look forward to reading more of your posts. ;)

two things:
#1 I'm glad to know where your "blog name" came from! yay!

#2 HOW DID YOU GET THE PROGRESS BAR??? I've been trying to do that all week (you know with all the extra time I have in the office...) ha.

But seriously, can you let me know how to did it?

Your blog name is adorable!

What timing. I noticed you left a comment on my blog last night and then on the way home from work today your blog name popped into my head and I was wondering where the name came from and now I know.

I caught up on all your posts tonight and am looking forward to reading more.

Good luck with your blog, it was fun to read through and see that a bunch of my blogging friends have already stopped by!

I'm enjoying your blog and am also petite like you (5 feet in heels)! Good luck with your blog.
