My Squidoo Lens is up and running

So I finally created my Squidoo lens. Actually, [My first squidoo lens](http://www.squidoo.com/justbudget/) is about [justbudget](http://justbudget.com), my little baby (web applicationaly speaking). Squidoo is a free service that allow you to create a web page easily and earn money from it. I'm not totally sure how it works yet. but it seems like they share google advertising profits with the [lensmaster](http://www.squidoo.com/lensmasters/somekool). So, basically I am trying this out. see how much traffic this is gonna generate. but one thing is sure, It was blazing fast to create my lens. thanks to RSS of course, most of the content is pulled from this blog. I might decide to create more lens later about other subject I care about. I am thinking, about KDE, Japan, Sports and who knows what. Why don't you [create your own lens to](http://www.squidoo.com/lensmaster/referral/somekool)? You can earn cash and get famous. Go ahead.

How to create zero-based budget

I just found this [interesting article](http://www.gettingfinancesdone.com/blog/archives/2006/08/how-to-create-a-zero-based-budget/) about how to create zero-based budget. Zero-based budget basically means that all your expenses should balance out your incomes, that the total of your incomes minus the total of your expenses must equal zero. Doing so requires you to create a category for every single dollar you win. The idea is interresting. and [Justbudget](http://justbudget.com/) does that for you automatically. Justbudget creates a virtual category called Saving. So every dollar you are not spending goes automatically into this category. Just enter up all your income and expenses and justbudget calculate the whole thing automatically. Justbudget also answers to the [3-reasons-most-budgets-dont-work](http://www.gettingfinancesdone.com/blog/archives/2006/08/3-reasons-most-budgets-dont-work-and-how-to-fix-them-aka-how-to-create-a-budget-that-works/). because justbudget does not ask you to guess what you are gonna spend but ask you to input your real data. with real data you get real information. So it does reflect reality. It does connect from one month to the next. and it does keep track the surplus money left over after all the categories are filled. I am always trilled when I find such articles and I realize that my software solves those common design flaws already. Thank you for using [Justbudget](http://justbudget.com/) and send me comments so it continue to improve.
