It’s been another very good week around here. I’ve been getting out a lot more lately and as a result haven’t been putting as much time into this blog.
So I apologize if I didn’t make it over to your blog to comment this week. Since a lot of us are very busy, I’m always up for helping each other in different ways instead if you’re open to it.
The main reason I’ve been extra busy this week is that I’ve been getting into dating more. Actually it’s been one special girl in particular lately. I was pretty tempted to write a post about the situation with her finances, but now that I’ve told her my blog name I don’t want to risk offending. Instead I’ll have to see if one of the popular blogs would accept it as a guest post where she won’t find it lol. Does anyone else find it super awkward knowing someone is learning some of your secrets you’ve shared on your blog semi-anonymously?
Anyways, she’s a great girl and in case she’s reading this, I don’t hold her financial situation against her. It does take some time to really accept though.
On a totally different topic, can anyone help me out with my best credit card offers page? I’m doing this movement where I get lots of other bloggers to mention it for my own personal gain Oh wait, I guess I can’t disguise credit card promotion that way. Fine, I’ll help you out too if you can help. Who wouldn’t want Modest Money owing them a favor?
Ok enough rambling, onto where this blog was mentioned recently…
Modest Money Around The Web
I’m too lazy to check past acknowledgements, but this might be my biggest acknowledgement list yet. I guess once you get nominated as a finalist for 2 Plutus awards all kinds of people want to be your friend. That and I’ve got some awesome, supportive blogging friends. Thank you everyone. I’m going to have to save up and buy you all a drink at FinCon in 2013.

What did I do to deserve getting mentioned on so many great blogs? So at what stage am I supposed to turn into one of those egotistical bloggers who isn’t willing to help anyone but himself? It seems like a lot of the big bloggers eventually evolve into that.
No I don’t ever want to end up like that. I may sell out with more and more ads over time, but I’ll always try to help out my readers and blogging friends. If I ever start slipping, please send me an angry e-mail or call me out on twitter.
Never do I want to become the Lebron James of the finance blogosphere. Speaking of basketball though, how about the Lakers?! I know it’s old news now, but they’re gonna dominate. Down with the king!
