So I find that there are a lot of great articles in the PF world and a lot of terrible, boring ones about topics that are more overplayed than “Crank that” in the clubs. So here are articles I actually like or found entertaining for the week. And no its not just link love, because you can bet your ass some of these dudes haven’t/probably won’t ever link back to me (though admittedly there are a lot of my closer associates on the list):
Obtain a copy of your credit report for free at Blogging Away Debt
Mrs MiniDucky is cleaning out her Wallet (just like I did, except probably more thoroughly than me)
This is right up my ally: Stick figures explaining the subprime mortgage crisis at My Money Blog
Mrs Micah and her Cash Register problems
The Honest Dollar has an interesting article on Date-targeted retirement funds (these are offered at my company: I do not use them)
PTM has the first money hack carnival (no, yours truly didn’t submit anything this time around)
Mighty Bargain Hunter has I know whats wrong with my trumpet which I feel obligated to mention since I play a good amount of musical instruments (including trumpet) and I had a similar experience with my trombone.
Lazy Man and Money has a pretty funny article on the worst finance book of all time
JD tackles money social situations (and who HASN’T run into this)
Saving on TV from Free Money Finance
Words of Wisdom from Warren Buffett at five cent nickel and trust me, when Warren Buffet talks, you should listen.
Breaking the cycle from NCN
My Two Dollars has a great article that I like to paraphrase as Take care of your crap
Lynnae has a good point with Budget Evolution (so true)
Debt free Revolution is finally debt free (in fact she will be doing a guest post coming up sometime here)
At blueprint, bad breeds more bad Wow Im a jerk, I don’t even bother to give details, guess you have to read the article
And finally not even personal finance related but I saw this:
Are meme’s helping peoples blogs? at My investing blog. Apparently it works. I have some real reservations about this and my current stance is “@#$% that, I am not artificially inflating my rank, if people like stuff here, they will link here” I do this for the people and to break up the monotony in a topic that is as traditionally dry as a bad white wine, and for emails like:
This is a wonderful thing that you are doing! You are really changing lives, mine included…”
Except wait you have to wait for the Monday contest update to see the rest, but that being said I’m occasionally tempted. My technorati link average compared to my reader count is almost comical. Over 10-1 visitor count per day compared to link count (last I checked) and my advertising revenue suffers because of it. For now, I’m sticking to my guns.
