I almost forgot to share the most blog-related news from them this month! Jeepers. It was a review of the “BEST Personal Finance Blogs” out there. Do you think I made it?
1) Most Sensible: AllFinancialMatters.com – A great site, run by JLP!. Also might be worth subscribing over there considering he’s an actual financial planner :) Someone who enjoys doing something w/ their college major I’d imagine. haha.. Money Mag picked this site as he “avoids the hype” and is a pretty conservative investor, sticking mainly to index funds.
2) Most inspiring: GetRichSlowly.com – I’ve been to the site a number of times, but what i DIDN’T know was that creator (J.D.) came back from $35k in debt! CONGRATS my man, that’s quite an accomplishment. The blurb also mentioned that he used to be a cardboard-box saleman! i love it.
3) Most Voyeuristic: MyMoneyBlog.com – Truer words couldn’t have been said! The IT guy behind it, Jonathan, spills all is finances out for the world to see – i absolutely love it. His blog was actually the first one i ever bookmarked, and one I continue to read to this day. It even turns out he’s on a similar “million dollar mission” like myself – striving to be a millionaire by 45. He’s a smart man, that guy!
4) Most entertaining: BudgetsAreSexy.com – Awww yeahhhh! Created, and directed by yours truly – the remarkable double agent J. Money, who’s trying to reach millionaire status by 44 (take that). haha… i keed, i keed! I was not in the issue. But one day i shall….you bet your bottom dollar.
Bonus tip: Find a good "balance transfer" offer to help pay off debt faster!
If you’ve been making payment after payment (on time) and still haven't been able to get your debt under control, snatching up a good balance transfer credit card offer may be the ticket to try. That’s where in order to gain your business - credit card companies will let you transfer your existing debt to a new card and let you pay ZERO PERCENT interest on it. Saving you tons every month!
What's the catch? Usually balance transfer cards charge a fee (around 3% of your debt balance) to let you transfer your balance to their 0% interest offer. But we've found a great credit card that will let you do a balance transfer absolutely free. Click here to learn more and see if you qualify!
PS: If you don't trust yourself with another credit card, ignore this! This strategy is to help you get out of debt quicker, not risk adding more to it.
