Friday’s Link Loving
Posted: August 24, 2012 Filed under: blogging, good reads, Link Love | Tags: blogging, link love
It’s Friday! And a lovely payday Friday at that. Those are the best so I’m trying to cheer myself up right now. What with the car issue and the potential of us not doing a honeymoon until a year after the wedding, I’m pretty bummed. But thankfully, I have reigned in my spending impulses so far. For instance, Wednesday, when we bought the car jumper kit? I really wanted to just go and buy lunch even though I had a lunch packed. I talked myself out of it and feel all the better for it.
So on to some weekend reading:
Jeremy at Modest Money has another great post (well it was a guest post but still a great post!) for blogging tips. This week was some tips on where to get content ideas.
Michelle at Making Sense of Cents wrote a nice post asking if you want to be self employed. She gives some pros from being self employed and from being an employee.
Debt and Taxes wrote a post on why he blogs. I’m glad it wasn’t an “I’m leaving the blogging world” post! And like him, I get thrilled whenever I see a comment on a post I wrote.
Kris at Balancing Money and Life quit her job! I’m so glad she’s out of her toxic work environment (or will be soon!) and found something new to do!
Lauren at L Bee and the Money Tree wrote a great post about new home budget busters. Plus make sure to check out her new site design!
Michelle at See Debt Run has a recipe for crock pot stew that’s married with chili. It looks yummy and reminds me that eventually I would love to have a crock pot!
Teacher Finance wrote a great post on how to help build your career.
Cait at Blonde on a Budget is in 4 digits for her debt and her net worth.
Average Joe writes how getting out of debt isn’t a goal—it’s a step to your goal. Right now getting out of debt would mean being able to afford a better car.
Daisy at Add-Vodka just got here first REAL job. Congrats again to her! It sounds extremely awesome with all the nice benefits.
Holly at Club Thrifty is a real estate addict. I loved this post-it made my day! Thanks Holly!
Simple Financial Lifestyle asks what you are doing right with your personal finances. I agree that all too often we focus on what is wrong.
DC at Young Adult Money has joined the Yakezie Challenge!
Kathleen at Frugal Portland wrote a great post about not judging too quickly. This is something that really resonates with me.
Jordann at My Alternate Life had the universe test her with extra money in her bank account that she knew shouldn’t be there.
Mrs. POP at Planting our Pennies reminds me that it’s better to pay more sometimes. So true—like I told her, I’ll spend more money on little bags of beef jerkey as otherwise I’ll eat the bigger bag in one sitting.
Money Beagle shows that it doesn’t always pay to buy the bigger sizes—pay attention to unit prices as sometimes it is actually cheaper to buy smaller!
Jana at Daily Money Shot has a confession. She pays for things that make her life easier. I do that too!
Edward Antrobus wrote a post about some life lessons that his cat has taught him. My kitty has taught me many things.
Enjoy your weekend!
