Smart Reasons to Save, Use and Invest Money

Money Reasons Weekly Review 20111009

Weekly Summary

I’ve been learning more about web development and coding in particular.  Reading about coding is always slow going because reading it and writing it are definitely two different things.

I was able to get some me time in this week (sort of).  I overlapped the “me” time with blogging at a local coffee house (see Blogging At The Local Arabica Coffee House).  Unlike the original experience, the words just poured from my head into the blog.  Initially it was going to be the post I’m writing now, but it got too lengthy for the intro that I planned it to be, so I have it scheduled for tomorrow.

Surprisingly, I’m starting to shift gears and get more into the technology side of blogging.  I was going to wait until next year to change my site, but I find that I’m starting to think about doing it next month instead if not sooner.  We’ll see if I can resist the temptation for the rest of this month!

On to my list of PF Blogger Articles for the Week:

Budgeting in the Fun Stuff: Balancing My Checkbook – Too Loaded to Care? – While I don’t have a booming online business, I can relate to how once you have enough money for a buffer in your checkbook, checking it isn’t as imperative as it once was.  Congratulations Crystal!

101 Centavos: A Brief Look At Debtor’s Prison – Many years back, debtor’s prison were an acceptable way of dealing with deadbeat borrowers.

20s Finances: Steve Jobs Died: What Was Important To Him – Steve Jobs’ Passing causes many of us to reflect on what is most important. Do you live to work or work to live?

Money Reasons: Why I Got An American Express Blue Cash Card – American Express Blue Cash Rewards Card is on of the best credit cards out there, and I’m now making this my primary credit card. Here is why. (this is my favorite blogger, lol)

Everyday Tips & Thoughts: Tips For Maintaining A Good Credit Score – Maintaining a good credit score is not difficult. All you have to do is follow some basic tenets of personal finance.

Growing Money Smart: What is Personal Finance? – This is my definition and description of personal finance

Financial Samurai:  Confessions Of A Protester – This actually relieves me in knowing that not everybody believes in some of the stupid causes that they protest about.  I mean, come on “A Job is a Right, Capitalism doesn’t work”?  Of course it work, that’s why we are at the top of the heap and a superpower.  Geez…  It does make me a bit disappointed that the protesters in Sam’s article don’t have better things to do with their life though…

Okay, that’s enough!  On to the rest of the post:


Yakezie Carnival – October 9th, 2011 Edition

Til Next Time

Enjoy the incredible weather (it’s 80 degree in mid-October, how cool is that?  Apparently not very…)

  1. Thanks for the mention. I am still working out how/when I am going to do a round up. Seeing as I read your blog more than most (if not all), I am sure you will make the cut. 🙂

    • I’m a techie, so it’s not that big of a jump, but still I want to learn the shortcuts now instead of writing something that is already wrote…

      Yeah, it was a great experience at the coffee shop that day!

  2. Teaching yourself how to develop a website can be difficult at first but there are so many resources out there to learn from.

    Have you ever thought of just hiring someone to do it for you? I guess for me its a hobby, something I enjoy doing and want to get better at.

    Congrats on making it 2 years with your blog!

    • I have experience with Microsoft products, so it’s not too bad. It’s just that php is kind of different (but not too bad either). mysql is sql, so I’m pretty comfortable with it…


  3. Thanks for the link, MR. Don’t you love it when you’re “in the zone” and the words, ideas and everything just pours out straight out your brain and onto the page. Fantastic.
