Thursday night I met up with six personal finance bloggers during a business trip to Washington DC. it was so fun to meet these bright, interesting people who I feel like I know from reading their writing.
Attendees were Debt Hater, Me in Millions, My Next Buck, My Pretty Pennies, Mrs. Micah and You Have More than you Think. They were very nice to this old lady who wishes she had it together financially at their age. We probably sounded like geeks to anyone overhearing the conversation but some of my best friends are…geeks.
