Welcome to the 100th post here at Buck$ome Boomer’s Journey to Retirement.  It’s been quite a ride since I wrote that first post in July.  I literally didn’t know a thing about blogging.  Thanks for being part of the learning experience. 

Even though it’s been busy with holiday activities I’ve picked some of my favorite articles from this week’s personal finance blogs for your reading enjoyment.

Editor’s Picks

 1. Free 2010 Bible Reading Plan. It’s time to think about goals and plans for 2010. If one of yours is to read the bible use one the plans from Craig @ Money Help for Christians.

2.  Give Your Wealth Away:An Argument for-a Secular Tithe. This controversial article has generated 145 comments as of this writing. Sierra Black, in a guest post @ Get Rich Slowly, talks about the need for regular giving outside of church.

3. Top 10 Financial Stories of the Decade. The fact that we’re closing out a decade has been overlooked. Madison @ My Dollar Plan recaps the top story of each year. Doesn’t the dot com bust seem so long ago?

4. 7 Free Printable Budget Worksheets. If you’re ready to start budgeting and haven’t found the tool for you, Money Funk has seven worksheets to help you out. Check out her free financial wallpaper for your computer!
