This week I realized I have been spending every extra minute I can to work on my blog (I’m sure you could tell by how awesome it looks). For the record, I hate how it looks and am open to suggestions or referrals to anyone who can help me for cheap 🙂 So I have tried to cut back a little to actually start unpacking all the boxes we still haven’t touched since we moved in almost a month ago. I have gotten into the habit of just looking at them and thinking, “meh”, and then looking back at my laptop.
But I have still read a lot of other blogs and have enjoyed a lot of them! Here’s the run-down:
What are YOU saving up for? Why they’re wrong about delayed gratification by Mario at @debtblag – This reminded me a lot about my post about juggling. If you focus on just one ball (saving) and don’t look at the big picture of what you’re trying to do, you’re not going to last very long. Before you start going hog wild with the budgeting and the saving, take a step back and decide why you’re doing it. Don’t just save now so you can go crazy later. That’s just stupid.
5 Secrets of Successful Savers by Melissa at @Allfinance – I love this one because it’s simple. To a lot of people, saving money is hard. Why? Not because it’s hard, but because they just suck at it. Just like playing soccer isn’t that hard, but I still suck at it. You just have to learn the techniques and then start ballin’!
Young and Employed, but Still Need Money? You Need a Side Hustle by Erin at @BrokeMillennial – I always enjoy a good post about side hustling. It gets me all giddy inside because there are so many things you can do to make extra moolah. You just need to use your brain to decide what you want to do and then do it!
What if Money was No Object by Alan Watts, shared on @rockstarfinance – This video shared by J Money had me completely riveted. I had to pause it because I couldn’t wait until it was over to share it on my personal Facebook profile. My favorite quote was: “It’s absolutely stupid to spend your time doing things you don’t like in order to go on spending things you don’t like, doing things you don’t like and to teach our children to follow the same track.” People, if you do anything after you leave this page, watch the video!
Could Learning a Foreign Language Give You a Better Career? by at @MoneybulldogUK – I speak German fluently, so this one caught my attention pretty easily. Although I haven’t gotten a ton of perks from knowing German, I’m sure that I could if I decided to search in the right places. This definitely works for Spanish in the states though! If you speak Spanish, you’re pure gold.
Thanks to all those I mentioned for being freaking rock stars and pumping out solid stuff day after day, and thank YOU for reading. If I knew who you were, I’m sure we’d be best friends.
