  15. Hi, Krystal. I start writing a FP blog. Can we exchange links?

  16. Five bucks, is that inflation? Been reading you off and on for a while now. Would love to swap links.


  17. Hi There,

    I have one reccomendation for you. Its a blog by Garth Turner, and ex-MP, now a finacial advisor. His blog is very entertaining and contains valuable infomation regarding investements. He offers a very different view of the Canadian housing market as well.

  18. Hey!
    I added you to my blogroll and read your blog on regular basis.
    Hopefully you can add me to your blog roll if you'd like.

    All the best,


  19. Hi!

    Let me know if you'd like to do a guest post for my site. I'm a big fan and it would be an honor, though I typically promote spending more than saving. :(

    My recent post HST Cheque and Dilemma Solved

  21. Hi!
    I'm from Canada, & I started a personal blog awhile ago. I didn't really know about this whole world of pf blogs, and I love it! I started with some saving tips that work for me, and then now I'm blogging a lot more about my personal finance. I post 3-4 (sometimes 7!) times per week, more if it's not finals period.
    I live in BC! Where in Canada are you from? It's so different here than the states. Everything is more expensive, so we Canadians have to stick together :)

  22. Hi Krystal, thanks again for your initial shout-out, I've had my blog for nearly a month. Yippee! Do you think you could add me to your Blogroll?? Canadians represent!
    My recent post What I spent- December 13 – 19- 2010

  23. Hi Krystal, I am Canandian, I have always tried my best with budgeting and PF but when I began reading your posts in the Toronto Star it inspired me to work that much harder at it and create my own blog. I started this week, Love it if you could check it out, add me to your blogroll and offer any advice…Thanks
    My recent post Our Net Worthnice for later

  24. Hi Krystal! I've been reading your blog for so long I can't even remember when I started! I've brought myself to finally start blogging too, so maybe you can add me to your blogroll? I'm living in Vancouver as well, so reading about all you local references just makes things even that much more relatable! =) – Penny.

    My recent post Possible government furlough Take control of your destiny!

  27. Hello.

    I would like to propose two blogs, both Canadian, one PF-related and one more "life-related": (NOT a blog about selling or corporate info, very much about advice and news and some quirky stuff, too. My team helps write this one.) (not strictly Canadian, but I am the author and as you can see, I do tend to speak from my own Canadian perspective)

    I hope you like these ideas. :-)
