Blue Collar Roundup – Tshirts Edition

Well dudes, it’s another long roundup. And I blame you all for that. If you’d stop posting good stuff, I’d stop wanting to round it up. Next time I’ll try picking my favorite 5 posts and limiting it to that.

In the meantime, enjoy pictures of my favorite t-shirts.


TB tshirt 2Financial Samurai wrote this bit on Yakezie awhile back about guest posting and how it can ruin your blog. I’m kinda guilty of that I think. Sorry, dudes. It’s neat when your ranking goes up and people starting coming out of the woodwork looking to post on your site. I’ve been working really hard at my new day job recently, so it seemed like a win-win (blog posts + almost no time input from me so I can keep making my day job paycheck + offers of money!). Except that they don’t all fit my theme mojo here. I guess that’s a thing we all gotta go through – figuring out how to handle becoming famous. :-)

You know what kinda guest posts I do want more of you to give me? Interactions you have with blue collar dudes. Fixing your car, renovating your house, and stuff like that. You don’t have to be blue collar to write a guest post about blue collar dudes!

Financial Uproar put Finance Fox under some fire recently for plagiarism. What do you think? True or false claims? I like to give people second chances since second chances is what got me a job and a house, instead of spending my life in and out of jail. Would you dudes give him a second chance if he started to fly right? Or have there been too many offenses? Or is it all BS?

Personal Stuff

TB shirt_3Everyone is talking about this Yahoo Mayer lady not allowing people to work from home anymore. But that’s not all that Financial Samurai talks about in this post. He talks about not getting taken advantage of by your employer. You should read this. Because c’mon dudes, who wants to be taken advantage of by their boss?

A better life starts with a better fricken attitude. So check your attitude at the door (my oldest hates when we say that to her) and Prairie Eco Thrifter will give you the info.

So you want a new job? Cool. But are you ready for the interview? I didn’t think so. Add Vodka will give you the lowdown on not screwing up the interview royally.

Did you always comment on blogs? Or did you start out as a lurker? I was a lurker for awhile, trying to get a handle on the blog scene. Plowing Through Life was also a lurker for awhile.

So Over This has a blog post that isn’t really a blog post. Now I got you interested, right? Yeah, I thought so.

Remember that McDonalds hot coffee court case? Not only does Edward Antrobus have details to fill in on that case that I didn’t know, making me think that maybe McDonalds was in the wrong, but he talks about liberals, conservatives, and personal responsibility. His post will make you think. Do you wanna be a thinker today, man? Then head over.

  1. I like that last one “I smile because I have no idea what’s going on”. I’ve been in conversations where I get about every fifth word. Best defense is to smile and nod your head, and hope that whatever you say next will somehow fit into the flow of conversation.
    Thanks for the link, dude.

  2. Hahaha…I love the t-shirt that says “I smile because I have no idea what’s going on.” That happens sometimes. And other times I smile because the conversation is ridiculous or getting on my nerves, so I just smile politely instead of saying something I’m going to regret :)

    Great roundup, and thanks for the mention!
