Friday Round-Up: The Best in Personal Finance Blogs

Friday Round-Up: The Best in Personal Finance Blogs

This weather has been uh-maze-ing. Absolutely, fantastically, wonderfully amazing. It’s reached 65, 70 and 75 degrees in the last three days alone, and each day has been sunnier than the last.

Surprisingly, I was able to resist playing hooky by making a daily schedule for myself – and by turning my computer monitor toward the window. Sure, there have been times that I’ve had to squint to see the words swimming across the page, but it was well worth the effort.

My fitness goal has been going very well, especially since our early Spring has arrived (and is hopefully here to stay!). I have met and surpassed my goal of walking 3.5 miles per day, often ending up more in the 4.5 range. And that’s every single day. Not bad for a preggers lady, if I may say so myself!

In other news, the personal finance world is abuzz with all sorts of goodies, including measuring wealth, tracking spending, debt control, time stinks and fun investing. Check them out below!

  • If tracking your expenses seems akin to hanging yourself by your toes, visit 20’s Finances for a rundown on the positive benefits that closely following your expenses can give you.

Thanks for the mention! I love questioning the wealth of others - it's a good thing to stop and think about your financial position. Are you doing well? Or are you heading for poverty?
