Link Love 12/14/12

link love beachCurrently as I’m writing this I’m about an hour away from date #2 with SF. Considering the fact that we had long talks in the car, and I mentioned I had a personal finance blog, I somehow suspect that if someone really wants to, they’re about two clicks away from figuring out this site.

I’m kind of OK with it. I mean I’m not shouting it from the rooftops (aka Facebook), but I’m not trying to really hide it either. So to say too much personal stuff on here might be putting me in a precarious situation, just in case I have secret lurkers.

And if he does happen to “stumble” across this blog….”Hi SF!, I’m looking forward to our evening.” (wink)

  • DC @ Young Adult Money

    Thanks for the mention! I always appreciate it. Hope the date goes well!

  • Jordann

    Hey thanks for mentioning me! I started my blog knowing that some day I wouldn’t want to be anonymous, so there’s isn’t any real damning information on it. I think it would take about two clicks from Googling my name to getting to my blog, or maybe even one.

  • Michelle

    Thanks for mentioning my post! Have fun!

  • CanadianBudgetBinder

    Thanks for the mention and I hope all went well with number 2. I prefer being Mr.CBB as I just blog to help others not so much to say this is who I am but we all have our own personal reasons and I respect that. Cheers and have a lovely weekend. Hope the shoulder is a bit better. MR.CBB

  • John S @ Frugal Rules

    Thanks so much for the mention! Hope the date went well.

  • Greg@ClubThrifty

    Thank you so much for the mention! Have a great weekend~!

  • CatAlford @ BudgetBlonde

    Wahoo thanks for the mention!! I so appreciate it! :) I hope #2 went really great! As far as being anonymous, I didn’t put my last name on my blog for awhile. Then, I started writing all around using my last name, so I gave up. :)) I do however keep where I work hidden, etc. :)

  • Mackenzie Randompath

    Thanks for the mention!!!
    Can’t wait to hear how the date went :)

  • Pelican on Money

    Thanks for the link luv! I try not to tell anyone anything but wouldn’t be ashamed of saying I have a PF blog if anyone asked. There’s nothing to hide there, just don’t feel like willfully sharing.

  • Blonde on Budget

    currently quite anonymous. Not sharing my name, or anything very personal. Might have something to do with BF being a policeman, his paranoia with sharing anything on the internet might have influenced me a bit. besides, I`m not really there yet, perhaps I`ll share my name one day. But currently I`m just trying to create a blog that people will read because of its content, without the big focus on the author`s name and pictures.

  • The Savvy Scot

    haha! Looking forward to this evening wink ;) – you should give him a wink when you see him and then at least you will know if he has googled you :P

  • MyMoneyDesign

    Good luck on the big date! Obviously I’m still anonymous and sticking to it. Some things are better just kept to myself.

  • Mo’ Money Mo’ Houses

    Thanks for the mention, and have a lovely date :)

  • Pauline

    Date #2 uh? I am not anonymous ON the blog but haven’t told anyone about it, just my BF and I think he hasn’t Googled me yet. I do however get a creepy number of people that come to my site by googling my full name…

  • SavvyFinancialLatina

    I’m still anonymous. WIsh to remain so. I don’t talk about my blog. But my hubby sometimes likes to mention it! And I pinch him afterwards.
    Good luck on date numero dos!

  • FrugalPortland

    semi. some of my friends and family know, but i’m not to the point where i’m putting first name last name frugalportland just yet! :) thanks for the mention and hope the date went well!

  • From Shopping to Saving

    I’ve mentioned it to some family members and some friends, but I haven’t really handed out the URL just yet. I don’t know, I kind of feel like I don’t really want them reading it, but I’m not so sure why. My BF knows but he never asked for the URL either so I’ve never showed him either. Weird right haha!
