Friday Round-Up: The Best in Personal Finance Blogs

This week was busy once again. Throw Valentine’s Day and a day out with a friend into my normal routine, and I’m just strapped for time! Fortunately, being busier than normal was very welcome: Valentine’s Day was lovely, and it’s always great to see my best girlfriend – especially since she’s leaving for a three week deployment in Italy on Saturday (lucky duck!).

All in all, it was a wonderful week, and I still found time to read a ton of awesome posts online. Here are some of the best. Enjoy!

  • Joe at Retire by 40 takes a look at some true entrepreneurs to detail how the Average Joe can make a business work. Read his ideas about the types of people who should give business ownership a try in the post “Go it Alone.”
  • Do you believe in website-love or website-prostitution? Check in with Femme Frugality to make your point about whether a certain “Sugar Baby” website caters to those seeking the real deal or to those looking to sell their bodies.
  • All pain or no gain? Lindy Mint poses this question at “How Soon Could We be Debt Free if We Went All Out?” Personally, I’m not a “balls-to-the-walls” kind of debt reduction person. How about you?
  • Paula at Afford Anything chats it up with Jean Chatzky, the Today Show’s financial guru. Join their discussion about debt stacking, debt snowballing and more financial advice at “Jean Chatzky Dishes on Debt & Your Day Job.” Join them for a great interview!
  • Check in with Budgeting in the Fun Stuff for some investment know-how in “On the Road to Wealth, the First $100,000 was the Hardest.” This is a very interesting first-hand account of reaching that $100K mark.
  • Fear is a natural response to the unknown, so Ashley at Money Talks gets to the bottom of your fear of debt to suggest ways that you can overcome both the debt and the fear.
