I started this blog as a wordpress.com monstrosity back in 2009. It officially became NickelbyNickel in 2010. For a while I just ran the free blog but eventually I thought, well, I want to join the big leagues so with a lot of struggling I managed to switch to a selfhosted blog. At the time,Continue reading “Letting a bill go without paying: Webhosting, system inflexibility and my own stupidity.”
As part of InboxZero day (see my previous post), I often find myself clicking through emails of advertisers and other people I’ve communicated with. I’d like to share this gem with you all, enjoy!
The blog though guys, chill, not me. (Although…I think, Tom has been driving me bonkers this quarantine season so who knows…). I should have done this ages ago! I started out this blog in what, 2009? I think? With a silly name on the free version of WordPress and within about 6 months I endedContinue reading “Moving again…”
Guys, I wish I had more time to write and I just dont. I just paid for the renewed hosting of this site at about $160CAD, it kind of hurt to pay… for a hobby I have only sporadically entertained in the last few years. Sigh.

It hasContinue reading “So I finished my emergency fund, now what?”
You’ve probably noticed this website is mainly a personal finance diary these days. When I was a young and eager (ha!) blogger I did at times try to write useful articles about things that I felt were relevant. Like how to cut down utility bills, get out of debt and other general personal finance stuff.Continue reading “Why I don’t really blog anything useful anymore.”
I got tired of my blog today. I didn’t make any backups. There was no coding magic: In a spontaneous series of events I spent 46 minutes searching through themes on WordPress until I found a simple-enough and customizable enough version of my tastes and Nickel by Nickel 4.0 no longer exists. I didn’t takeContinue reading “Nickel by Nickel 5.0”
I don’t know why that video is so big. Anyway. So it’s been a while since I’ve written anything public. I feel like in the past year almost every post has started with that sentence. Yeah, oh well. I’m here. How have you been? I unbroke my blog, which is kind of cool. I wroteContinue reading “Changes”
