If you were here yesterday, I hinted about a big announcement. Without further adieu, let me announce that I’m the newest writer for Canadian Finance Blog. Can you believe that some sucker actually wants me to write for them? Yeah, me neither.

Anyway, if you’re a new reader from CFB, welcome. And if you’re a usual reader, it might be a big deal for you to see I’m no longer anonymous. So let me introduce myself, even though you all know me. I’m Nelson Smith, and I’m the dude in charge here at this blog. I work for a potato chip company, and I try to write a blog that won’t insult your intelligence. I already assume you know about emergency funds, so you won’t see any posts on ways to get one. Instead, I try to write stuff that’ll make you think. Feel free to stick around and comment on something, I’d really appreciate it.

So you’re a new visitor here, and you want to just read the good stuff. You’re impatient, and I like it. Well then, check out these posts, which are among my most popular.

Why I Hate Tipping– I think tipping is basically an institutional system of blackmail, and only do it grudgingly. This one is worth a read just to read the comments calling me a cheap bastard.

5 Hottest Women on Business TV– This is the post that’ll make things really awkward if I ever meet Amanda Lang or Becky Quick in real life.

14 Financial Documentaries That Don’t Suck– Sorry to kill your productivity over the next few days.

I spend a little time every now and again analyzing an individual stock. By far the most popular has been the analysis of Tokyo Electric. Luckily, I didn’t buy any.

I spend a lot of time ogling ladies, as you can probably tell. Check out where I list some hot personal finance blog chicks. Since it was so awkward and creepy the first time, I decided to post a part two.

My Saturday Link Dumps are pretty popular too. I won’t spoil the surprise by telling you what they’re about. Just click through. It’ll be worth it, I promise.

Posts I Think Should Be More Popular

I think these posts are much more awesome than their page views would indicate. Of course, maybe I’m biased.

People Who Don’t Have Cable Better In Every Way, Say Those Without Cable

What’s The Big Deal About Ads?

An Open Letter To (Dragon’s Den Star) Kevin O’Leary

Why Are Frugal People Such Good Tippers

Obsessed With Money

Anyway, there’s all sorts of good stuff here. And if you’re a regular reader, hopefully you’ll find some new stuff.

So thanks for coming (or supporting me). I’ve been blogging for a year and a half now, so there’s lots of goodness here. Hey, you guys should read it all. It’ll only take a whole day or so! No big deal. And, while you’re at it, check out my recently updated about page, which was overly due for a little tune up.


Tell everyone, yo!
