I apologize for missing last week’s Sharing Saturday. I was on vacation in Disney World and, as we left mid-week, I got in almost no reading. I do want to give a special thanks to my guest posters: Marissa from Thirty-Six Months, Dr. Cabler from Celebrating Financial Freedom, Dannielle from Odd Cents and Suzanne from A Straight Talk on Debt for filling in for me and providing some excellent content!
I really wanted to provide you with 2 weeks worth of reading for this week’s post to make up for missing last week’s, but I was so overwhelmed when I came back that I had to declare Google Reader feed bankruptcy and start from scratch. I know I missed a ton of great reads but over 400 posts is intimidating! So, I picked up on Tuesday of this week. And, as I predicted, I was not disappointed.
Let’s get to it!
Personal finance reads (where I showcase some of my favorite personal finance posts)
Money for College Project provided a kickass infographic on Surviving the Dining Hall. Not only am I in love with the infographic, he makes some great points.
Your Finances Simplified discussed how to Get Your Children Off to the Best Start. I completely agree with him in that it is crucial to teach them, from a young age, the importance of saving money.
American Debt Project asked So What DO I Want to Do? I love her list of goals and this chick has already made a documentary! How cool is that?
Master the Art of Saving expressed her Biggest Financial Fear. I cannot imagine living without health insurance, especially with an injury like Jen has. Please send her some good karma that she doesn’t hurt her back!
Not Made of Money shared a guest post on how Being Poor Makes You Financially Responsible. I’m not sure that being poor makes you financially responsible but it gives you a great education on how to manage your money. As long as you’re willing to learn.
Bonus posts: Ten Things I’ve Learned from Walt Disney on Doodle and Lucy (I discovered this post while searching for Walt Disney quotes) and Jeff from My Multiple Streams has a great series on AdSense Tips and Tricks. Start with the first post and work your way through the series.
Nonpersonal finance reads (where I showcase some of my favorite nonpersonal finance sites)
The Kitchen Magpie–She’s funny, she cooks, she’s from Canada, she keeps me amused on Twitter. And she likes really awesome music. She’s also the reason for a very special post coming your way next week.
EduClaytion–Clay reminds me of Chuck Klosterman. He’s smart, funny, and knows how to use pop culture throughout his writing in a way that makes me jealous. Plus, he likes The Goonies and wrote an entire post about The Mupppets. He is officially my favorite blogger ever.
