Out in cyberspace somewhere is a lost human being bogged down in debt and terrible spending habits who things the internet is mostly for nut-trauma videos and strange forms of pornography. Should they ever type in “personal finance” or “debt reduction” into the Google or bling-Bing, and then search through the first 70 pages they may find a little site called Snarkfinance, and perhaps even this here post. Perhaps they then find a world of wonderful personal finance sites, and change their lives. That is what it is all about, isn’t it people? Well, that and the occasional post about man boobs or, as I like to call them: “mits”.
Cashmoneylife wrote about why you should take a vacation. Are you reading this, National Lamboon? That is what you call a double-entendre slam.
iHeartBudgets explained how you can save money by not being a jerk. Personally I am not convinced, I save plenty of money on dates by being a jerk. Just ask my fiancé.
Len Penzo, who is a artier of odd, has been running a series written by people who live on less than $40,000 annually. Hint: they don’t live in big cities, and aren’t on the coasts (so not where I live).
DebtRoundup published about how to reduce household expenses once your teen starts to drive. I have better advice: if you have daughter make sure she is always dating guys with cars (the cooler the car the better), with large backseats because large backseats are safer. Problem solved.
Femmefrugality recently re-launched with a new design that is cleaner than George Zimmerman’s record (to soon?). You should check her site out if you have not, or her guest post at this very site: Setting up a New Life as a Young Mother. If you like the guest post, follow the blog!

If you can write intelligibly in English and are looking to do some guest posts to help promote your blog or gain a writing credit, please see the guidelines for guest posting here.
Below is the best guest post query letter I received this past week:
Title: FREE GUEST POSTING (caps are real and hers, not mine)
I’m &##&, a blogger. I found your blog snarkfinance.com interesting and informative. I intend to guest post an article in around 500 words of high quality unique content and that would be completely free for you . If this is something you could allow me to do, In return I add a single link to our site.
Please let me know if this sounds good to you so we can start working together in earnest. Looking forward for a favorable response.
Since I added specific guidelines for guest posting at snarkfinance, I feel it is my duty on behalf of all other serious, competent bloggers to begin posting these obviously foreign, link-baiting pile of crap guest post quires publically, like sticking dead bodies outside your home as a warning to others. Also, the sentence, “If this is something you could allow me to do, In return I add a single link to our site” is incredible on multiple levels. This would be like me saying, “if you let me sleep at your house, in return I will have sex with your wife”.
Best Search Terms of the Week
Search terms that somehow landed people on Snarkfinance and would make my parents proud:
- Bathroom voyeur
- Voyeur cam
- Midget joke
- William Hung
This weekend I will be in the proud nation of Canadia enjoying the square wheeled cars, custard, questionable French accents and copious amounts of strippers because it will be my bachelor party. Do not expect a post on Monday, per the usual schedule, as I will be incredibly hung over and filled with shame.
What you are all up to?
