This has been a very interesting week in my life. Last month my girlfriend and I broke up and at the end of the month I moved to my own apartment. Suddenly faced with paying all bills on my own and a higher rent, I realized that I needed to get a new job soon. Talk about a life changing time.
The job search is still ongoing, but it looks like I have something lined up in 2 or 3 weeks. It’s paying off not burning bridges with previous employers.
Until I figure out the job situation I’ll still be pouring a lot of time into this blog. After about 5 weeks, I’m inching closer to a 200K Alexa ranking. Yesterday I just had my first day of over 100 unique visitors per day. I attribute that surge mostly to my iPad2 giveaway. Also I have been very busy networking with other bloggers.
So without further ado, I’d like to share some great posts from fellow personal finance bloggers for some weekend reading:
