In Glamour Magazine and a Plutus Award Finalist!
Author: Anna Newell Jones

and then we saved in october 2013 issue of glamour magazine
This month has been really amazing so far!

We’ve got: the great, cool fall weather that my very pregnant self is loving; pumpkin spice lattes (total splurge); a mention in October’s issue of Glamour magazine! (page 220), and also And Then We Saved has become a finalist for Best Debt-Focused Personal-Finace Blog and Blog of the Year (say what!??!)!

Something I never thought would happen when I started this blog was that I’d be in the airport or grocery store flipping through the magazines and see my name pop back out at me. I don’t think I’ll ever get used to that. It’s such a cool feeling and I’m so grateful that ATWS has resonated with people because that just means the getting-out-of-debt hope is able to get spread to that many more people.

I pestered y’all for nominations a little while back (thank you for the love!;), and I was honored to find out that ATWS has become a real-live finalist in not 1 but 2 categories! The Blog of the Year nomination is something that wasn’t even on my radar so that’s especially cool, and my gosh, the other finalists in that category are just kind of, um, amazing so it’s neat to be mentioned with such great sites like: Budgets are Sexy, Financial Samurai, Frugal Beautiful, Good Financial Cents, Making Sense of Cents, Mr. Money Mustache, Planting Money Seeds, PT Money, and of course, Wise Bread.

If you missed adding your nomination a couple of months ago, there’s good news: voting is still open for the People’s Choice award so you can add your fave there.

I’m bummed that I’ll be missing FinCon and the Plutus Awards that are held at FinCon this year (because of pregnancy related travel restrictions… too close to my estimated due date) but I’ll be there in spirit (and on Twitter;) cheering everyone along!

Just wanted to share this exciting news with you all and thank you again for supporting ATWS! xo, Anna

This year FinCon (an annual personal finance conference) will be held in St. Louis, Missouri. Last year the conference was (awesomely and conveniently) held in Denver. It was my first conference ever and it was an amazing time full of smart, vibrant speakers and fun events. If you are at all on the fence about if you should or should not go, definitely go. All of your favorite personal finance bloggers will be there and it’s all around a great and informative conference.

I would, of course, be going but won’t be able to travel because of the little bun in my oven. Even though I won’t be able to physically attend I will totally be there in spirit. And by “be there in spirit” I mean, I will be obsessively watching and reading all the tweets to come out of the conference.

One of the things that happens at FinCon is they have they awards called the Plutus Awards. There are all sorts of categories and if you’re so inclined I’d love a vote.

The Freckled Nest Design team busted a move designing this blog and I think it turned out great. If you think it’s neat too, I’d love to have your vote in the Best Designed Personal Finance Blog category.

Also, I love that this site has been inspirational for people wanting (and needing) to get out of debt and am always in awe when readers send me emails about how it has helped them to achieve their goals. There’s an award for Best Debt Blog. Again, if you feel that this site is deserving I would love your vote.

Thanks for your support! xo! Anna

p.s. the above photographs are from one of the FinCon’s events last year. It was an 80’s party:)
