As you can see from the Articles section, most of the articles are either written by me or re-purposed from comments people made on one of my sites. I'd like to encourage other people to share their experiences in detail about a particular bank account they love or dislike, or a general article about banking, interest rates, and so on. This site was created only a few months ago, and now that there is some decent traffic, we should take advantage of this momentum to share information with each other, from consumer to consumer.
Everybody is welcome to contribute articles (just respond to this post or comment on the about page to let me know) but to add further incentive, I'll happily publish your article and let you put your own Google ads on your article page. This way, you can earn money from your article and I won't take a penny from it.
Now, this is no get-rich-quick scheme for you, as I anticipate that at least to start, each article would probably only earn a few dollars from Google AdSense. And unless you already earn some money from AdSense on your own site, it will take a while to earn the $100 needed for you to cash out. But it's better than nothing, and if there's enough interest, I can open a blanket ads account for all authors on this site and then dish out micro-payments (to overcome the minimum $100 problem).
Anybody interested? Got any questions?

Thank you Hornswoggler for the compliment, your right I have thousands of ideas to help you save money!!!
I mean lets face it would you rather take advice from a person who's flat broke and living paycheck to paycheck? or from someone who has $450,000.00 in the bank???
The choice is clear, take my advice and one day you'll be wealthy too!!!
I'll be giving some helpful money saving tips in a future blog....stay tuned!!!

Roc, that could be a fatal flaw in your master plan to take over the universe. As a wise investor you always listen to advice. You do not judge the advice based on how much a person has in the bank. The flat broke person could be richer than you in the future.

Peter, I would be interested in writing different articles too.
My expertise lies in choosing the right bank card/credit card for you needs.
Also, having amassed a lot of money to retire on, I have a budget plan that, while doesn't suit everyone, would help a lot of people adjust their habits and perhaps be able to save at the same time. This would apply to people who do not live beyond their means and who have a decent income..if two of us (married) can live with another person on $40,000 so can you if: you own your own home and you want to do this budget,using/modifying my plan. Of course, this would also apply to people in smaller places than the major cities.
I have other ideas as well. Since this is a financial forum and I think most people are ready to retire in a few years or have already, I think I can contribute a lot of information, such as saving money on groceries (and not extreme couponing), finding ways to add to your income without having to go out the door, and some where you do go out the door, stuff like that. I don't know if this forum wants that kind of information but I have it all.
I have saved hundreds of thousands of dollars and this with a very meagre salary (2 of them) compared to what I see today. Less than $35,000 per year for many many years.
Please let me know what you think. I was awarded a prize for the best suggestion last year one month.

Sorry guys, I know I'm new. But I need to jump in on a previous comment.
Would I take advice from someone wealthy. Yes you should. We are 32 years old and an account balance between tfsas rrsps and resps for our children combine to 368,000. Why? Because both my wife and I started investing by the advice given to us from our parents, the extensive education we both received, and our continuing knowledge through continued education.
I am happy to pass on knowledge and continue my personal learning. And I think persons like ROC whom are willing to pass down that knowledge should be taken seriously.
