Pounds and Sense

Welcome to Pounds and Sense. My name is Nick, and I am a 60-something with a particular interest in personal finance and investment matters. I am a semi-retired freelance writer living near Lichfield in Staffordshire, UK. You can read more about me if you wish on my About Me page.

Please do take some time to explore my site using the links in the menu above. You can see my latest posts by clicking on Blog, or zero in on any of the other categories listed in the menu. Note that many of the main categories have sub-categories as well, which you can see by mousing over them.

If you like what you see here, I warmly invite you to register to receive email updates whenever the blog is updated or when I have other useful information to share. You can sign up in the box in the right-hand column and can of course unsubscribe at any time. I hate spam with a passion and promise never to use your email address for any purpose other than this or to share it with anybody else.

As this blog is mainly about saving and making money, I don’t suppose you’ll be surprised to learn that I hope to make a few pounds from it as well. I aim to do this through advertising sales, affiliate marketing, and other standard methods. I am also open to creating sponsored posts in collaboration with selected businesses whose activities I support and recommend.

Pounds and Sense is a UK blog, and I am therefore writing primarily with UK readers in mind. Non-UK readers are of course very welcome here too, but some of the information and opportunities discussed may not be relevant or indeed available to you.

I welcome comments and questions on Pounds and Sense (as long as they aren’t spammy). Please note that I am not a financial services professional, however. I can’t provide expert financial advice, just present my point of view on financial matters and share useful resources when I find them.

I do hope you enjoy reading Pounds and Sense, and look forward to reading your comments and questions.
