Friday Round-Up: The Best in Personal Finance Blogs

Friday Round-Up: The Best in Personal Finance Blogs

All this baby stuff is really taking up a lot of time, so I apologize for being lax on Friday Round-up. I have managed to get around to all y'all's blogs to read and comment on them, and your posts were wonderful the last few weeks. But this is my first post about the best of the best for weeks!

Without further adieu (…because I have to run to the airport to pick up my sister…), here’s the Friday Round-Up. Enjoy my picks for the week!

  • Read through Joe’s story of debt at The Free Financial Advisor. I guarantee his friend’s comment will be enlightening.
  • Do you have a lot of money? Paula at Afford Anything takes a look at what constitutes “a lot” and how life can get in the way.
  • If I told you there is a magic number of steps to building wealth, would you guess a hundred steps? A thousand? Well, guess again! Derek at Life and My Finances details the Seven Steps to Get Rich Every Time.
  • J. Money at Budgets Are Sexy takes us through the The Best and Worst Jobs of 2012. Think yours is on either list? Check it out!
  • Television has its time and place, but what happens when it takes over your life? Follow along as Melissa at Beating Broke shows us how television can affect your reality. Weigh in with your own thoughts on the draw of HGTV, “Storage Wars” and other stations/shows.
  • For those artistic types who love to dabble in graphic design, why not get paid for your artistry? Femme Frugality shows us how to Zazzle.

I'm thinking about Zazzling or BeDazzling my blog posts. People are far more attracted to shiny objects and tee-shirt phrases than they are blahblahblah financial tips. At least I am. Imagine the fun: mutual fund advice with little glittery buttons around it! I'm going to be rich.

Thanks for mentioning my post, Christa. Don't strain your back picking up your sister.

Thanks so much for the mention...and don't worry about letting the blog thing slide a little when you're PREGGO! Baby first. Everyone understands. :) You must be so excited...and ready! It's getting close, isn't it? Off to check out the other links! Would love to see your zazzle shop when it comes to fruition. :)

Joe, I think a flashy bedazzled site would be awesome. You could have dancing dollar bills and funny pics of billionaires flash across the screen. All of your typeface should also be bolded neon colors -- very appealing!

Femme, love the Zazzle idea! I can't wait to try it. Thanks for understanding the lax attitude with baby on the brain!

YW, Paula!
