Happy 2nd anniversary to Five Cent Nickel!

Close Encounters of the Cheap Kind has a new home at www.CheapEncounters.com!

One of my favorite personal finance blogs is celebrating its second anniversary today. Two years ago today FiveCentNickel.com had its first blog posting. Since then he has posted 985 articles and received 5,574 reader comments. Quite the accomplishment, indeed.

FCN was actually the very first personal finance blog I read, and remains one of my favorites. I even subscribe to the RSS feed so I can make sure to keep up with his blog. His blog is one of the best I have found in that it is both informative and entertaining to read. Classic FCN posts include “Life’s too short to drink cheap beer” and “Dave Ramsey is Bad at Math”. While I don’t drink at all, these posts make you laugh but also think.

To celebrate the big 2, FCN is doing a big giveaway. Just by posting here you can enter to win one of five primo prizes, including an iPod Nano. If you have a blog of your own, you can review his site for an additional three chances to win. Learn more about FiveCentNickel by checking out his welcome page, and then be sure to explore around on his site for a while.
