There are two things I want to confess to you guys:
- I have totally sucked at linking to my awesome fellow bloggers lately. Actually I’ve sucked at reading their posts, too. On multiple occasions, I have cleared the PF posts from my reader because I was too stressed out to read them.
- I am so burned out on blogging about finance, it’s not even funny. I haven’t decided what to do about this problem. I took a week off from blogging here, which didn’t help much, and lately I just struggle to decide what I want to say. Probably because I’m scared of getting chewed out for having opinions.
Anyway, with those confessions off my chest, it’s time to link to some posts that are way more interesting than anything I’ve written lately. Please go check out these posts from my friends and let them know what you think!
Debts n Taxes asks if he and his wife should carry a balance on their credit card. Some interesting discussion going on in the comments over there!
Erika at From Shopping to Saving tells us how to plan a multi-family vacation without going crazy. I haven’t been on a vacation in 9 years, but my last one was multi-family and it was NUTS! Could have used this then!
Daisy at When Life Gives You Lemons did a great post about how running a blog is like running a business. Since my blogs ARE a business for me, obviously I thought this post was spot on!
Carrie at Careful Cents tells us 10 ways to save money on practically anything. I mean, where was this post when I was grocery shopping last week? And who did that FABULOUS redesign on her blog?
Jana at Daily Money Shot really really wants another dog. Like really. As someone with 4 dogs, I don’t think I’m in a position to comment, but she’s obviously
smarter than me full of willpower.
Bog of Debt asks, are you giving it your all? When it comes to this blog, I have to say no! This was a fantastic post that reminded me I need to get my butt in gear and get motivated again.
JT at Money Mamba makes an interesting case for buying a new car instead of a used one. I actually bought my Yaris new, simply because the vastly lower interest made up for the savings of buying used.
Jefferson at See Debt Run gives several ways to use a big bag of chicken. Naturally this is one of my favorite posts of the week since I’m trying to learn to cook!
That’s what I know this weekend – I’m off to battle the burnout yet again! My mantra for the week ahead: When you’re freaking out and nothing is helping, you could be looking for the wrong solution.
