The weekly links post is a bit late this week, sorry guys. I was in the process of migrating the site and working on some back end stuff and trying to hammer out the design. As you can see, I’m not quite finished but I’m making good progress. I’ve got some good ideas in the pipe, and hopefully you’ll like them. I’ve also probably got a post just about the things I learned while doing this. Anyway, without further ado, here’s the best from around the web this week.
A post over at Consumer Boomer about on how to invest in bonds. Given the low rates right now, bonds are not that great of an idea, but when rates improve, I’d like to invest in some. The interest payments are something I’m interested in as they can help me diversify my passive income streams.
The Debt Hawk has a post on The Future of College Education. This is a topic that I dont think many people give enough lip service, and diversity of opinions is not really tolerated as well. Telling someone “you don’t have to go to college” is nothing short of blasphemy to most.
Financial Bondage has a short post on the Blame Game. Something that’s key to personal finance and self improvement — Stop blaming others and take responsibility. I’m getting better at this.
Little House in the Valley has a post on how she saved 63/month and didn’t lower her standard services. Call and ask for discounts people, it’s not as hard as you think it is.
Over at Sustainablog, they ask “What are you doing this time of year?” I’m all about seasonal activities outdoors that people do. I like all types, but it seems like my favorite ones are in the summer.
Inhabitat is giving away an iPad. I dont really want one, but it’s still a sweet giveaway.
