Cedar Park, Texas – Small City-Town USA

Cedar Park, Texas is part of the Greater Austin Community.

It is is a small city-town, near Austin, Texas, the state capital, that was incorporated in 1973. Since 2005, the community’s population has grown by about 30%. In 2010 the population was a little under 50,000 and by 2015, it is projected that the population will have increased by another 30% to approximately 65,000.


The boundary lines encompass two Texas counties, Travis and Williamson, and it is is the third largest city in the Austin Metro area.

It is a lovely and thriving family oriented community with a rural feel to it; located just 20 minutes from downtown Austin, the state’s capital; making it close enough to provide easy access to all the facilities and services the big city has to offer. A current project, the Schlitterbahn Cedar Park; a water park resort, had a targeted opening date of May 2012; however, the incentive package expired. The City Council is still interested and they are optimistic about reaching their goal. Visit the city’s official website to view more projects.

Home building efforts for this lovely city can be credited to a response by the city’s economic development representatives who invited IBM (over a decade ago) to relocate their business to Austin, Texas. IBM indicated that if they accepted the invitation they would need a place to relocate their employees along with their families.

The real estate market consist mainly of single-family homes for sale, starting in the low-$100,000s and can go as up to $650,000 plus. It has all the appeal of small town charm with the conveniences of living in and living close to a metropolitan city. There are golf course properties, condominiums, townhouses; and land is also available for custom building. Investors (or home-buyers) can locate foreclosures, short sales, bank owned properties, and other investment real estate.

Having lived in Cedar Park, Texas, it has my personal stamp of approval as a fabulous place to work, live and raise a family. Below are all of my plusses based in my family priorities:
  • Excellent schools
  • Low crime rate
  • Convenient access to major highways
  • Nice neighbors and nice neighboring communities (Leander, Georgetown, etc.)
Perfectly situated between metro Austin and the Texas Hill Country, it could easily be classed on any official listing of Best U.S. Cities to Live In. It’s a fine place to own your home, excellent for real estate investing, and a great place to retire.

Change Your Blog Name and Tagline

In a previous post a response was provided to the question:

How Often Do You Update Your Blog Content? 


In that post, I also explained that after joining a blogging community, BlogJob.com and being allowed to create a blog there, there was the task of giving the blog a name and a tagline. The blog is not yet a year old and it has become necessary to make an executive decision.

Decided that the blog name and tagline needed to be changed. It wasn't difficult to do since the blog URL remains the same no matter how many times the name changes.

Also needed to add an icon. Icon or favicons are an integral part of a website or blog's online identity.

Took care of the easiest task first. Went into the theme customizer and added an icon. Finally decided on the flag of Texas in the shape of the state of Texas as my icon. Since my plans are for Austin, Texas to be our final stop. Our family has relocated more than once. But I'm tired of moving.

Next task. Changed the name and tagline for my site to something more “generic”.

OLD blog name: Cmoneyspinner Keeps on Blogging
NEW blog name: My Pain, Your Gain


OLD blog tagline: Let the blogging adventures continue.
NEW blog tagline: Advice for newbies and others who want to work at home. Learn from my mistakes.


Cha-cha-cha-changes. :)

Hope you visit at your earliest convenience.  :)

BeeSweet Lemonade: 10 Year Old Makes Sunshine in a Glass

Happy Monday!  Apologies to the devoted fans of "Shark Tank" but never watch the show. However, the concept of helping a budding entrepreneur get started in business is an awesome idea and more power to the people they assist. Currently reside in Austin, Texas which is a very business-friendly city, and will always make my list for best places to live and work.  If you would like a website to follow that keeps up with the happenings in this capital city, check out theAustinot.
