My Favorite 3 Posts…

  • Alan from Saving For Serenity featured a fantastic article on How To Save Money On Your Commute.  Alan covers walking, biking, driving smarter, and taking forms of public transportation.  He even details NOT commuting at all.  The thing I liked most is that he provided “further reading” by linking out to other respected and information-packed resources on each topic.  A must read in my book.
  • Ramit from I Will Teach You To Be Rich posted another information intensive post on the true value and details of owning real estate.  Ramit and I don’t always agree, but we do here.  Plus, you can’t argue when he is able to provide this much of a resource on any given topic.  If you own a home or are at all interested in Real Estate, you really need to read this post and the links within it.  I’m a real estate agent, property manager, and have bought and sold small apartment buildings, yet I was still exposed to new, thought-provoking concepts.  Amazing stuff!
  • Leo from Zen Habits managed to impress me, yet again.  If you’re tired of seeing me link to his stuff, I suggest you e-mail him and tell him to stop writing such fantastic material.  At least half the articles he writes, make me feel that he wrote them specifically for me.  His post on The Art of Artlessness:  On Living Simply and Naturally was no different.  I literally connected with all 8 of the categories that he outlined.  You owe it to yourself to read this post!

  • Was honored to be included by Consumerism Commentary, one of the oldest and most respected personal finance blogs around!  I was part of a discussion on debt reduction methods!
  • I was honored to be included in way too many other link round-ups to mention them all.  Some of the larger ones included FCN, MainStreet, and Good Financial Cents.  Thanks to everyone who included me!
