I’m sure that some of you have heard about the search engine business that has gone on with google for the last month or so – I unfortunately got caught up in that mess, so I’m making a few design changes to the site. This is something that I have been considering for a while and just kind of got pushed into it. I’m ok with that though – because honestly it has not taken near as long as I thought it would (I feel like I’m pretty well finished) which has been nice. I’d love some feedback from you all about design, color matching and readability, so if you’d like to check out the new site, head over here and look around. Then if you could come back and leave me a note in the comments or drop me an email telling me what you think, that would be awesome. Not everything is up there but for the most part, everything is. On to the best reads of the week:
Kevin at Thousandaire has to turn in his lease and is wondering if he should get a new car. This is a debate that I’m really having with myself right now – even though the truck is almost paid off, H and I dont really need it – I only use it to go to the gym, which I could bike to if I wanted in the summer and make other arrangements in the winter. It’s pretty handy to have around and I’ll probably keep it, but I always wonder.
Van Beek is wonder if he should buy real gold or gold stock. I’m not really much of one for investing in commodities, but this is interesting, and even more so with the run up in gold lately (as well as the more recent pullback).
A sweet infographic from money for college project on studying abroad. It was something that I never really did (or was very interested in, honestly) but I had a lot of friends (and even my mom!) did it.
Financial hope over at broke professionals is also interesting. The one thing that kept me going when I was paying off debt was that I was too busy working (or driving to work) to think about much else. Admittedly, there were times when I thought “this blows” but I thought it would be better debt free, and I didnt really feel it that much because H and I had just moved to a new city and didnt have many friends, so it’s not like my phone was ringing off the hook with invites to go do awesome stuff.
