My name is Kerry K. Taylor (the K. part is important) and I’m the lone blogger here. I started this site in 2008 and have since been voted Canada’s #1 Money Blogger by a big Canadian newspaper. American newspapers like me too, though.
Squawkfox explores frugal living topics that are sexy, delicious, and fun. Sometimes.
Since I write long posts about consumer restraint, I’m very surprised that so many people read my blog. I’m also surprised that Squawkfox is one of the biggest personal finance blogs on the interwebs. Maybe it’s because I include pictures.
NEWBIES: If you’re new, start here. Old(er) people can go there too — y’all tend to have better reading skills.
MY BOOK: I wrote a book. My publisher called it, 397 Ways To Save Money. People email all the time telling me they got it (from the library) and loved it.
REALITY TV: I was invited to be a ‘Money Saving Expert’ on the reality TV show Million Dollar Neighbourhood. This was fun. I talked about baking soda while caked in full makeup under the hot baking sun.
HUMBLE BRAG: Financial guru David Chilton mentioned me in his book, The Wealthy Barber Returns. I probably owe him dinner.
MEDIA: The media are (generally) nice to me. Check out my press.
ADVERTISE: You can advertise on Squawkfox, but only if you pay me with money. I don’t accept grocery coupons or free nylons (anymore) — my accountant won’t let me.
HIRE ME: I’ve been hired to write real (serious) journalism articles for traditional media. This makes me a freelancer. I’ve written for Sympatico, U.S. News & World Report, Yahoo! Finance, and Moneysense. Email for details.
SPAM KILLS: I don’t do blog giveaways. Not because I’m an a$$hole, but because I don’t think anyone needs all that free packaged s$it. I also don’t accept guest posts (but that’s because I’m an a$$hole).
