I want to thank everyone that has read, followed, and participated in A Financial Revolution over the course of it’s first few months in existence. I hope that 2007 will bring more readers, ideas, and personal finance knowledge to each and every one of us.

I want to take this opportunity to highlight my favorite posts of the year. Even though most of them are pretty recent, (Hey! We’re only a few months old) the newer group of readers may have not seen them yet! Are there any other posts which you guys really enjoyed?

Without further ado, my 5 favorite posts of 2006:
