Weekend Reading: Links Of The Week 4/18/2009

in People & Products

First, thanks again for another amazing week!  All trackable numbers are way up from last week, however I am most proud of the increase in comments.  I deeply appreciate you all taking the time to add your perspective on the different issues.  It not only provides me with invaluable feedback, but also helps grow the community as a whole!


My Favorite 3 Posts…

  • Bible Money Matters almost suffered a personal tragedy when a grass fire threaten to consume their neighborhood.  He later posted Days Like This Make You Realize What Is Important.  I followed his twitter updates throughout the day and was extemely happy to hear no one was hurt!

Man Vs. Debt Around The Web…

(I’m positive I left out some people who featured me this week…  Sorry, please send me a link so I can get you in next week!)

Personal Finance Carnivals…

Ok, so I forgot to submit article Sunday for two of the regular carnivals I like to participate in.  Stupid me!  However, I am proud to announce that I made my first editor’s choice in this week Carnival of Pecuniary Delights!  Check out all the great articles including my post, 33 Ways To Thwart Identity Theft!

Best Of The Rest…

  • Do You Dave Ramsey ranted against Voluntary Repos.  I couldn’t agree more!

Non Personal Finance Spotlight!

My new (to me, atleast) favorite non-personal finance blog this week is Simple And Spiritual! Tom calls New Zealand home and I’ve been really impressed with his content this week.  I definitely suggest everyone subscribe to the blog and give it a test run!

Thanks for the link to my article about our near tragedy with the fires! Thankfully everything and everyone was ok!

In a side note, I saw that a few days before the fire, the devotional on our site was called “rising from the ashes”. Thank goodness that one didn’t have to come true!

Loving your site, and will be commenting more!
