Welcome, clickers!

I've been Clicked over at MSNBC.com... so if you're visiting this site for the first time, here's a little introduction:

My name is Madame X and I'm obsessed with money... but not in a yucky super-materialistic kind of way! This is the personal finance blog where you're as likely to read about a dominatrix as a dividend; where salaries, spreadsheets, studio apartments, and salad dressing coexist with coupons, karaoke, career advice, and condoms. I quote James Brown songs as often as possible. And no post is ever off-topic.

I still can't believe 40,000 people have visited this site, but here's what a few of them have said about it:
"a wicked sense of humor"-- Business Week
"Madame X is a bad sista"-- SingleMom
"one of the ur-texts of this genre"-- Bluebird
"you must be psychotic"-- Anonymous
"Wait... that's not toast on your crown?"-- Caitlin


I have a great time writing this blog and I hope you enjoy reading it. Thanks for stopping by!
