Again it was a pretty busy week around here. For the first time I actually had a post published every weekday. Sure a couple were guest posts, but hey, it’s a start. Just don’t expect that pace every week
Part of the reason for the extra posts was that I started to review financial software. On Tuesday I featured SpringCoin and their online debt relief software. They even helped out with an exclusive cash giveaway. Enter now if you haven’t already.
On Thursday, a guest writer started a weekly series about side hustles. Her first post of the series 3 Good Web Based Side Income Ideas For Smart Hustlers profiles some interesting ways for people to make money online.
Also just a reminder to vote for your favorite Canadian personal finance blogs. There have been over 500 votes so far, but it would be great to get even more votes.
Lately I’ve been seeing some good growth on Twitter. I was aiming for 600 twitter followers by the end of the month, but I might reach 700 by the end of the weekend. Yeah, I’m horrible at setting goals haha.
On the job front, I am meeting a potential client Thursday afternoon. It looks like a promising opportunity, but it would only be a temporary part time contract. Since someone else wants to hire me part time too, that might work out well. If those don’t pan out, another company might be ready for some marketing work in a couple weeks. If you’re looking for marketing help, be sure to contact me.
So things are looking up.

As usual, every Friday I like to give a shout out to some of my favorite bloggers. I’d love to include more of you, but I don’t want to overwhelm people any more than I already do. Plus some of you are just nicer to me. Being nice goes a long ways in my books.
