The house is finally cooling down after hours of no A/C while the window guys were here.
It was about 82 degrees in the living room, which is distinctly uncomfortable (especially with leather furniture). And it’s not like I could resort to my normal trick of stripping down. Or maybe I could’ve, but I (and Tim) didn’t particularly want to test that theory.
At any rate, my brain is only now congealing, which means no profound or enjoyable insights from me at the moment. Though on Saturday I did ponder the following:
If DINK is “Dual Income, No Kids” then what’s the opposite? OINK (One Income, No Kids) or SINK (Single Income, No Kids)? I’d vote for CRAP: Cash (is) Really Appreciated, People!
That’s about as deep as I get on weekends.
Anyway, on to the point at hand: I’m formally requesting that you socia media-lize the hell out of my mom’s post today.
June 27th is the second annual #FinHealthMatters day, when folks from all over the blogosphere post about the vital topic of what financial health means to them.
This is crucial because:
- It’s an important, interesting subject
- Not enough people really think about it
- It’s a contest by CFSI for a $1,500 stipend for FinCon expenses
Now, I’m not eligible this year since my post last year won. But my mom can still enter, and I want her to win because:
- She’s an amazing writer who deserves it
- It’s an unique take on the topic
- The stipend would cover the cost of the room we’ll share at FinCon
All very important reasons.
There will be five contest winners: four chosen based on the quality, relevance and potential impact of the piece; one based on social media engagement.
Now, I’m sure most of us can agree that Mom should be able to win one of the spots on writing alone. But since people are unpredictable, we’re trying to cover all the bases.
In all seriousness, it’s a damn good post, so please go read it even if you’re not interested in social media.
And if its awesomeness moves you to share it on Twitter or Instagram… Well, I won’t stand in your way. (But I will ask you to make sure you use #FinHealthMatters — without that, it won’t count.)
Or if you’re a busy person, you can always just take my word for how good it is and tweet/Instagram the following:

The contest runs through July 6th, so feel free to Instagram, tweet or retweet the link multiple times. Because isn’t a frugal FinCon every PF blogger’s dream?
Have you thought about what financial health really means? Also, how the hell does one Instagram a blog post? But mainly that first one.
