  • Morning Coffee: Erratic Posting Ahead + Facebook reminder

    I’m heading out to Japan for a few days today, and I’m not sure what my internet access is going to be like there. I’ve scheduled some posts for while I’m away, but the Morning Coffee and Evening Roundup updates may be posting at weird times (Japan is 16 hours ahead of LA). I’m hoping to share some posts about the food there, as well as some observations about personal finance. If nothing else, I hope to post often with brief updates to Facebook while I’m there.

    Speaking of Facebook – if you’re not seeing the updates from the CFO Facebook page in your newsfeed, it’s probably because I’m not paying to promote them (it’s rather cost prohibitive). There are a few things you can do to ensure you see CFO updates in your news feed: Liking the page (and then selecting “Show in News Feed” when you hover over the “Liked” button), and Liking posts and interacting with the page. Apparently if you don’t interact with the page, CFO is just dropped from your news feed. I use Facebook to let you know when I’ve posted something new at CFO, but it’s also a great source for general news (for example, I’ll mention that I’m not doing starter scenarios for one of the drugstore because the deals that week aren’t so great). I also use Facebook to let you know if there an active Swag code when I spot one, but it’ll be interesting to see if I can access Swagbucks.com from a country that’s not eligible to use SB.
