This week was a technically challenging week for MDJ as I botched an upgrade thus making various parts of the site a little buggy. One thing I noticed was that the post schedule was a little wonky, so thanks for being so patient while I'm working things out. As per the messed up scheduling, I promised a book giveaway of the book "A Million Bucks by 30". That contest has been postponed until coming Monday (hopefully)!
Anyways, enough about that, here are some great money related articles I read this week.
- Plonkee Money hosted this weeks Carnival of Personal Finance. Out of the editors picks, my absolute favorite was "How I taught my Preschooler the Value of a Dollar".
- Moolanomy had the great idea of posting the best pf blog posts of 2007 and a bunch of top notch sites participated. The articles submitted are all worth the read.
- The Financial Blogger writes about his feelings/stress levels just before a job interview. I can certainly relate with him on this one.
- There is some good news and bad news with regards to those with variable rate loans/mortgages. The good news is that economists predict that the central bank will drop rates by 0.25%. The bad news is that the banks may not drop prime to match. You can read a more detailed article by Canadian Mortgage Trends.
- We've written about tipping policies before, but only on a local basis. CBC has an article that describes tipping policies for some international cities.
One more thing!
- MDJ had the honour of posting a guest article about the basics of RRSP's on one of the bigger pf blogs out there, GetRichSlowly. Thanks for the opportunity J.D!
Enjoy the weekend!
