Mr.CBB’s Blog Post Picks Of The Week~May 19-25,2012

By: Mr.CBB

I’m back again with my second blog post picks post (say that 10 times). What a week it’s been for Canadian Budget Binder. We surpassed 25,000 blog views and have a wonderful 1500 Facebook Fans whom are a great team to talk to every day. My Twitter Followers have been growing slowly but that’s ok, we all have to start somewhere. My followers keep me up to date with the latest and greatest which I enjoy reading and re-tweeting.  I was also surprised to get nominated for another blogger award called the Kreativ Blog Award by my mate Dennis at What To Cook? Thanks again Dennis!

When I started this blog it was merely to see if anyone out there wanted to listen about how we save money and stay out of debt. What I wasn’t prepared for were the vast amounts of not only Canadians but diverse cultures all over the world looking for advice, tips and answers to their questions.  I’ve met and teamed up with some amazing bloggers and fans that motivate me to keep doing what I do.

To all of you, I thank you for taking a small blog like Canadian Budget Binder into your daily life and sharing it with the world. I will forever be grateful and so will the many readers who continue to make changes to the way they understand Money And Finances.   Sharing is what it’s all about!
