Hello everyone, I want to thank everyone again for your support. I am still working through every email and comment. Haven’t even gotten to the voicemails. I am still emotionally exhausted. I go to bed around 10pm if that’s any indication, especially considering I am typically a night owl.
But I have started working again after taking almost a full week off. If I can start working again, it’s time to start blogging again as my blog is a business and I’ve got sponsors I work with. Pay special attention to the sponsored and partner posts as they help offset the fees for web hosting, graphic design, etc. I feel really lucky to write and do what I love, plus have the financial backing. Thank you, sponsors!
I came across a list that Bankrate put together on the best states to retire. Here’s what they took into account. “We gathered state statistics on cost of living, crime rates, tax rates, access to medical care and average annual temperatures. We then ranked the states from best to worst, with the best being those states with a relatively low cost of living, low crime rates, low tax rates, easy access to medical care and higher-than-average year-round temperatures.”
Our Golden State ranks close to the bottom. Hello! I am going to factor in a move to New York (#33) or Hawaii (#35) when I approach my retirement years.
