So today is the first day of a full weekend personal finance extravaganza! I know it sounds super lame, but I’m super lame, so it works.

I’m going to the Financial Blogger Conference this weekend where I will get to meet a lot of the best personal finance bloggers. I can’t wait to find out if Debt Ninja is really a ninja or just some big fat dude who eats a bag of cheetos while writing every post. I’m probably going to touch J Money’s mohawk. I’m definitely going to buy JD Roth a drink and see if I can get some of his awesomeness via osmosis.

So while I don’t have a regular post for you since I’m on “vacation”, I do have some great news. I didn’t do a giveaway at the beginning of September because I wanted to do two months at once and make it really big. I’m finalizing it now, but I can promise you will not be disappointed.

Get ready for a much bigger giveaway on Monday than I had two months ago when I gave away $225. And remember, all you have to do to enter is subscribe to my newsletter at the top right of the sidebar!

Have a great weekend (I know I will) and we’ll see you on Monday with a bunch of awesome prizes!
