Sup! This week has been a delicious one when it comes to blog posts by other financial writers. Unfortunately, I don’t have the time today to link and comment on all the ones I want to, but this is all really good stuff.
Jumping off a cliff: Investing in the Twitter IPO by John at Frugal Rules – For those who aren’t familiar with financial terms like IPO, Twitter is going public and will be selling stock shares in their Initial Public Offering on November 7th. John wrote a great post on some things you should consider before jumping on the bandwagon.
You Can Change Anything by Mackenzie at The Random Path – “When you break a small habit, you teach yourself that you can change anything”. All of us are capable of change, no matter how small or large it is. Read more about Mackenzie’s journey to realize that here.
Thoughts on Frugality by Kathleen at Frugal Portland – I always enjoy reading Kathleen’s stuff, but I absolutely loved this one she wrote yesterday. It’s so funny how we all have different thoughts on frugality, and we sometimes think our opinion is correct. But it’s really about what’s important to you.
How Setting Consistent Goals Increased My Revenue by 300% in Less Than 3 Years by Jeff at Good Financial Cents – I’ve been listening to Jeff and Mandy’s Dollars and Roses podcast this week AND I’ve also been reading Jeff’s book, Soldier of Finance, and I’m pretty sold on his work ethic and I identify with his obsession for personal finance 🙂 His post about setting goals was great because I’ve realized that I’ve been spending so much time trying to figure out what to do next and trying to understand everything that I haven’t taken the time to set concrete goals. But if you want to make more money, that’s what you have to do!
The 10 Best Personal Finance Blogs You Should Read by Anton at Dreams Cash True – I shared this one because I want to introduce all my readers to as many good blogs as possible. Anton’s shared a lot of those. He’s also got a free ebook that’s available. It’s all good stuff! And hopefully one day I’ll be on that list 😉
The 5 Stupidest Habits You Develop Growing Up Poor by John at Cracked – This was just hilarious, because it’s so true. With every single point, I thought of someone I know and it just made me laugh. This is one you have to read just for the entertainment factor. And if you realize one of your habits is on that list, now would be a good time to change that. Just hop back up to Mackenzie’s post to work on that 🙂
How has your week been? Anything you’re hyped up about for next week?
