Mid April 2012 Blog Update 38 Comments
Well it’s been a very busy week around here. So much for scaling back
Unfortunately I can’t say I got a job yet, but I did manage to get this blog’s Alexa ranking under 100k. So when does this Alexa company start mailing me the checks? If only it were that easy.
Last week I created a poll of the top Canadian personal finance blogs. If you haven’t already, please head on over and place your votes. Early on one specific blog was running away with the lead, but a late edition just recently passed him. So it will be interesting to see who comes out on top. And no, neither blog is Modest Money. No love for the host?
If anyone wants an additional vote, subscribe to my rss feed, follow me on twitter or like my blog on facebook and then send me an e-mail. Hey, nobody said this poll was going to be super accurate. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t fight tooth and nail to get the glory of being one of the top vote getters.
Feature Blog Posts
Normally I like to feature more posts from other blogs, but since the list in the next section is quite long, I’m going to try to limit this to 5 featured posts.

And just so everyone is not leaving generic comments, how about a totally off topic question or two. My beloved Canucks lost their opening playoff game. So I’m hoping for a big bounce back game tonight. Any hockey fans out there? If so, who’s your team? If you’re not a sports fan, maybe just tell me about your Easter weekend. We’ll make the comments nice and random like this post. Enjoy your weekend everyone!
