A Look Back

Homemade Cthulhu, adapted from pattern in Cree...

I’m on vacation this week and thought it would be nice to post a look back at some of my early posts.    These posts are some of my favorites, but were written when there were only 3 or 4 of you paying attention.

Since I know you don’t want to miss anything, here are 5 of my favorite early posts, in no particular order:

1.  Cthulhu’s Guide to Finance.  I’m more than a bit of a horror geek.  Books, movies, or games; all keep me entertained.   Over the weekend, I taught my Mom how to play Zombie Fluxx and Gloom.   When Cthulhu approached me about writing a guest post, I couldn’t refuse.

2.  Birthday Parties Are Evil.  It’s hard to remember to be cheap when your little girl is asking for a bowling party.  It can run $200 to get a dozen kids an hour of bowling and a bit of pizza.

3.  No Brakes.   This is a post about why I had a hard time coming to grips with financial responsibility.

4.  4 Ways to Flog the Inner Impulse Shopper.   Who can’t love a BDSM-themed personal finance post?  Every blog needs a dominatrix mascot, right?

5.  Fighting Evil by Phone.  In which I share the method of convincing Big Nasty Telephone Company and their Contracted, Soulless Long Distance Provider to leave me the heck alone and stop demanding $800 they refused to admit was their mistake.

    1. Nice way to have your readers read your old and forgotten treasures!

    2. It is good to go back through your material from time to time and share it with your readers.

      This is something I think I am going to try soon. I have a lot of gems from back in the past that might be good for readers today.

    3. Enjoy your vacation! I sometimes repost an oldie but goodie 🙂

    4. Have a good vacation! Can’t believe summer is almost over.

    5. Have a great vacation!
