Welcome to the 17th Carnival of Pecuniary Delights – “Online Slang” edition! Like other carnivals this one travels from one blog to another, but the main purpose of THIS guy is to showcase quality articles that may have lapsed into obscurity over the days. So today we dust ‘em off and thrust the best ones back into the limelight.
And in case you’re wondering like I was, pecuniary means “of, or pertaining to money”. Works for me! Now let’s go learn some web slang up in here – it’s poppin’ up as fast as noobie finance bloggers ;) W00t! Here is what the internets are coming to, definitions courtesy of Urban Dictionary.
W00T! - An expression of joy and excitement.
ex. “I maxed out my 401(k)! W00t!“
Free Money Finance presents Working Longer Hours Early in Your Career is a Good Investment. Just like those retirement funds, it’s better to rock it out NOW while you’ve got time on your side rather than later when you’re all old and crotchety.
Bible Money Matters presents The Best Decision Doesn’t Always Make The Most Financial Sense. This is true! Sometimes you have to make decisions based on your PERSONALITY and what helps you sleep better at night. It may not make the most financial sense, but it might get you to actually DO something about it ;)
The Happy Rock presents Do We Earn The Right Not To Budget? Blasphemy! haha…actually, he brings up a really question. The whole idea of mastering your money is to gain that financial freedom in the end and to focus your energy in other areas of life. But once you’re on a roll and everything’s going smooth, do you now reward yourself by easing up on that budget?
Christian Finance presents How to make money blogging. Wow. Talk about a guy who REALLY has a passion for this stuff! Not only does Bob give a majorly thorough review from top to bottom, but it’s something every blogger should bookmark (I already have) and then review every few months. This is seriously some great, and *free* btw, content.
Financial Highway presents Frugal Summer Fun Ideas: Top 10 Summer Activity Ideas for Families and Couples. While some of these literally made me laugh (“Go hunting for bugs or birds”…”You won’t kill them, of course.”) it’s a mighty impressive list :) Especially if you’re trying to woo anyone in particular right now…I’m pretty sure doing a few of these will earn you some mad creative points.
Pwned – A corruption of the word “Owned.” It basically means “to own” or to be dominated by an opponent or situation, especially by some god-like or computer-like force.
