With all this talk about my stat counter, it has an interesting feature. I can do a keyword analysis to see what words bring my many readers to Ragsland. Usually, they're the usual, my name or Wheel of Fortune. I figure those are people who can't remember the exact address, but remember those stories and get here that way.
The most recent different one, I think, was probably a surprising answer to their google query: "How to keep from losing your house."
If you've been with me a while, you know how I feel about that.
Sadly, a google search does not give the option of living within your means. Most of the responses to that search I read blamed the housing market, predatory lendors, layoffs, or just the bad economy (which seems to be the catch-all phrase for poor decision making).
It's never just the individual's fault for trying to keep too many balls in the air at once.
