February 20, 2008 Link Payday

Here’s some of my favorite posts as of late in the personal finance blogosphere:

The Simple Dollar is right on the money (no pun intended) on investing in yourself. This post discusses exercise; I don’t talk about it much on this blog, but in 2002 I weighed (according to my doctor’s scale) 272 pounds; today I’m right around 180, so I do believe that this is something that can seriously pay off!

Lynnae over at talks about something I preach to parents regularly: read to your kids! Talk about investing in your family; this is something I believe pays off big. Nothing is equal to the amount of time you spend reading to your kids.

Debt Free looks at reasons why most people can but few people will get rich. I’ve long believed that it’s certainly possible for the working class/middle class person to save enough and invest enough wisely enough spending very little time and energy to do well, if not “get rich” (I guess it depends on the true definition of “rich” today).

I’ve Paid For This Twice Already again discusses the art of snowflaking, which I’ve discussed here and many other personal finance bloggers have discussed over and over again. Snowflaking pays off, trust me!

Making Money Journal has a similar interest to me: photography. This week they look at making a zero cost macro lightbox. I’m going to work on making one myself when I get a few minutes!

Finally, Mrs. Micah asks a question that many may be afraid to ask: who do your financial decisions reflect on?

    You’re welcome. I hope I can do it with the box; I really am trying to work on my photography and be frugal while doing so.


    You’re welcome (did you know I love your blog?).
