It was an odd week for me, in terms of writing (hit a dry patch), but it was even more interesting, because I got an excellent comment, pointing out that on most “finance blogs” the commenters are just other bloggers attempting to get their blog linked to (from the first blog). I have noticed that a great deal of the commenters on my site are other bloggers, with a few exceptions (mostly on my RDSP specific posts). I must agree that from what I have seen a great deal of the commentary on other sites seems to be from other Finance Bloggers, I wish I did get more comments and questions from “actual” readers, but there isn’t much I can do about it (I suppose I could follow Popular Science’s model and turn off comments, but that seems a bit drastic).

This week I include a Word Puzzle for you to solve, the answer is at the bottom of this post:

Debt Subliminal

What could this possibly mean?

A note for those who are looking for more information and/or pointers to the posts I have done about the Registered Disability Savings Plan, I have created a static page with all the relevant posts, on the top of the page (look for RDSP in the menus on top), click on it and you will see the page. I will be updating that page as I write more, and will also try to add more useful information about other sites to read about this important topic.

Oh and if you look at the Google+ page and my Twitter feed there is an actual picture of me on them (not just my cat).

My Weekly Recap

My Writings for Week Ending November 1st

Happy All Saints Day!!

Advice to the Love Lorn (Pension Potential)

Yes, I kind of went off on a tangent here, but think about if you could find a potential spouse with an easier retirement guarantee?

Blurred Lines or More Thoughts on Financial Bloggers

Further to my discussions about Financial Bloggers (incestuous lot that we are).

Jumping to Conclusions

I do really get miffed at folks who don’t even listen to my rants, before they tell me how I should fix my problems.

Predictions without Skin in the Game

The Princess Bride and finances, two of my favorite topics, melded into one awkward post, good stuff!


Choice Picks for the Week

All Saints Day is upon us, which of course kicks off the Christmas season as well, and soon we will all madly panic’ing about what to buy, and for who(m), it’s the reason for the seaon.

Word Puzzle

Did you get it? It’s pretty straight forward for you financial folks:

Working Around Debt

Preet’s Video

Other Bookkeeping

Remember my RSS feed is available too, and I have added an RSS Comment Feed as well. Have a look at my micro-blog on Twitter, where you can see a whole plethora of good articles and pithy comments by me as well. Twitter feed where I re-tweet many great articles by some of my featured writers (and make the occasional odd or off colour commentary on life (in 140 characters or less)). I am also on reddit, Tumblr, Pinterest and other Social Media sites (look for the BigCajunMan userid) as well.

If you have social media accounts, don’t forget to vote for my posts (see the nifty dashboard on the bottom of each article, where you can cast your votes).As they say in Quebec, vote early and vote often! This site is iPhone Friendly (and Android , iPod Touch and iPad Friendly), enjoy it on the go, in a readable format for the device. If you are reading with an iPhone or Android device, drop me a comment and tell me if this needs any improvements. This site is also in the Kindle Blog list, if you are interested.

    Word Puzzle (to me): No room for ‘Hiring’ words = employment opportunity is a very tightly closed circle.

    Nice puzzle….

    Thanks for the mention BCM!

    Word puzzle = work around debt. At least that is what I see. Will be interesting to see what everyone else writes!

    Haha… You elaborated my point perfectly! I can honestly say that at one point I considered doing one of my own. However, after a year of reading these I decided that the 1000+ PF writers are doing an excellent job as a whole and anything I could offer would be redundant.
    I only have a half dozen of the best in my RSS feed which I read on a regular basis. 😉

      Hopefully I am on your RSS feed 😉

    If you like the fact that I revise my work, you’re going to love future posts on the subject because I’m sure I’m not done yet 🙂 Thanks for the mention.

      You are about a mile ahead of most financial writers who seem to forget they made mistakes…

  • Preet November 1, 2013, 7:10 AM

    Thanks for the embed. I leave this comment, not as another financial blogger, but as a financial vlogger.

    • bigcajunman November 1, 2013, 9:13 AM

      and there is a HUGE difference between the two. I have been told that I have a face for radio (and podcasts). Keep up the good work.
