What to Expect on SavingsPinay This 2016

December 28, 2015

Since publishing my Merry Christmas From SavingsPinay post I’ve been creating a whole lot of year-end posts. I did the My Extra Income Year-End Post on Saturday and my Personal and Financial Goals for 2016 yesterday. I still have four more posts left before I can SavingsPinay can finally bid goodbye to 2015.

Anyhow, today’s post I would want to come clean to you. I’ve always been thankful to the people who make this blog alive, to the sweet SavingsPinay readers who wait for a new article to be published in this post. However, I believe I’ve been sort of a terrible blogger this 2015. I missed posting content for days even a week. I was inconsistent. 

And so I know that for 2016 I want to plan things better. It’s my number one must-do for my Intentional Blogging goal. That being said, here are a few things that you can expect with SavingsPinay this 2016:

SavingsPinay Community

          I am encouraging you to join the SavingsPinay Facebook Group. I have big plans for the group in 2016 and I wanted it to be our very own community. It’ll be a portal where we can have further discussions, find accountability partners and share our financial goals, secrets, tips and more.

SavingsPinay 12-Month Money Makeover Program

          This is something I am looking forward to fulfill in 2016. If you’ve already joined the program and entered your Email Address in the invitation on the top left corner of this blog or through the pop-up enter your email thing then THANK YOU. Expect the benefits every first day of the month. If you want to learn more about this then click this LINK.

SavingsPinay Web Lectures

          I planned to make YouTube videos out of my SavingsPinay blog posts and articles through my YouTube Channel. Sadly I only published two videos. Now I decided to separate SavingsPinay with my personal beauty and lifestyle blog, IzzaGlino. And so, I created a YouTube Channel solely for SavingsPinay Web Lectures. Expect a lot of the published posts in this blog to have a corresponding video content in the end and/or before posts. I will make a blog post once its ready to launch. 

I want SavingsPinay to be a free source of personal finance lessons and inspirations for common Juans and Juanas. I pray that 2016 would be a great year for everyone.
