July 20th Friday Link Lovin’
Posted: July 20, 2012 Filed under: blogging, good reads, Link Love | Tags: link love
Dear Friday, I miss you. We don’t see each other enough times in a week. I’d love if you came two times a week, if not three. Also, I hate when you don’t show up even though I think you should. Love, Bog of Debt
That’s obviously a testament to a long week even though it really wasn’t. A lot of it was the waking up on Wednesday and thinking it was Thursday. It just went downhill from there. But it’s the weekend and I’m bound and determined to relax and not do too much. So, keeping that in mind, here is some great weekend reads:
Jake at I heart budgets tells us his debt pay off story. I love these types of stories as it helps motivate me.
Budget and the Beach has a great post about blazing your own trail. I try to keep this in mind—especially when viewing friend’s Facebook pages.
Jeremy at Modest Money continues his blogging tips with keyword research.
Mr. CBB had L Bee guest post about how going to a private school affected her financial life.
Average Joe posted about renovating his rental house right after my housing issue.
Michelle at Making Sense of Cents wants to know if you take all of your vacation days.
Erika at From Shopping to Saving has a great post about how deal with vacation withdrawals.
B at Below Her Means turned down a 30% pay increase. Just proves that money is not everything.
Daisy at Add-Vodka is getting another dog. She talks about re-homing fees and how they really are worth it. I can’t agree more!
Andrea at So Over Debt asks if finance blogs make money even more taboo. I try to be honest with all purchases and choices I make—it’s called personal finance for a reason, right?
Mo’ Money Mo’ Houses had her credit card hacked…but not really. But at least she’s monitoring her accounts right?
Debt and Taxes asks if you are fit for survival. I had a zombie invasion discussion with my fiancée not to long before this post came out and it was only partially in jest.
Kris at Balancing Money and Life turned a road trip for a race into a sort of mini vacation for the family for fairly cheap!
Corey at 20’s Finance gives some great tips on how to get a promotion.
Holly at Club Thrifty tells it like it is: saving money can be boring. I’m still trying to make a game out of it but it really can be.
Jason at Work Save Live had a great post on a DIY headboard. I want to try this eventually!
Kathleen at Frugal Portland gives another inspiring post when she realized that she has paid off $11,800 in only eleven months! Way to go girl!
Marissa at Thirty Six Months gives a few pointers on what not to do at your first job (grown up or not in my opinion!). I wish I would not have done some of these.
And there you have it. Some light weekend reading. And it took me twice as long to do this post as I realized I was building it using links from my Google reader. As in you would need my password to access them. But they’re fixed now and I’m going to go take a nap!
