This is the first of what I plan on being a weekly event. There is a lot of wonderful insight and information available in the blog world. I will select five of my favorite articles written by fellow personal finance or frugal bloggers.
2. Lending Club-My review of Social Lending. This is the first detailed article I have read about social lending although I have read about the concept previously. Matt Jabs at Debt Free Adventure inspired me to give investing a try with the free $50 promotion offer. I’ll post the results in the future.
3.What Works for Me-Combining our Finances. I selected this article for two reasons. First is because the author, NCN at No Credit Needed, discusses combining family finances. Mr. Boomer and I will probably do that at some point as we prepare for retirement. Second, he discusses the envelope system he uses to manage money which is something I started doing based on Dave Ramsey’s course.
4. Is Cash Dead? Ten Places You’ll Still Need Cash. I thought this was an interesting topic although I’m not ready to give up the green. A couple of other places I thought of that requires cash include garage sales and foreign countries that use dollars (Mexico, Bahamas, etc.).
5. Mrs. Micah’s Second Blogiversary. Congratulations to Mrs. Micah at Finance for a Freelance Life on reaching the milestone of two years with her blog. That’s inspiring to all and especially beginners like yours truly.
I hope you found the content of these posts interesting. Have a great week!
