I think that my audience (meaning you of course) is so cool and I love the way that you engage with me here on the site and on Facebook, Twitter and instagram.  So I thought it would be super awesome to have a way for you all to show off your broke-ass pride.  See that photo up above?  I want you to do the same thing.  No, not necessarily in Times Square, but in front of some landmark wherever you live.

Make a sign saying “You are Young, Broke and Beautiful” and stand in front of some place cool or indicative of where you live, and have a friend snap a photo of you.  Feel free to get as creative with the sign and location as you’d like.

Once you’ve done that instagram it and/or tweet it with the hashtag #YoungBrokeAndBeautiful. Or email me the photo at Then I’ll post it on the Facebook and rewtweet/repost it on the twitter/instagram.  You can then show it to all your friends and be like, “Look motherfuckers!  I’m on Broke-Ass Stuart’s Facebook page. Your PhD in Astrophysics has nothing on this” or some other incredibly smug remark.

This sounds like SO much fun right?  Honestly, I’m really excited about this.  So send me some photos!
