Weekly Reading Roundup – February 10, 2014

Weekly Reading Roundup - February 10

I ran out of time this weekend – so right now I’m on a plane writing my belated Weekly Reading Roundup with the WordPress app for iPad. It’s actually not to bad, thought it’s missing a few features. Anyway the fact that I ran out of time this weekend and that I’m traveling for work are related. I was preparing a few other posts about a fun little experiment I’m going to launch this week and used up all my blogging time. It’s a bit of a long shot, but hey nothing ventured nothing gained right? You can expect to see an announcement post very soon.

Anyway enough about me – these posts are about sharing some of the fantastic stuff I read this past week. So without further ado:

  • Over at Mom and Dad Money, Matt  explains the true value of money – time!
  • Grayson from Debt Round-UP challenges a recent rumor that extra mortgage payments don’t matter – pssst they DO!
  • Two great posts about net worth this past week – the first is by Savvy James who challenges us to compare our net worth against the money muggles (a cross-over phrase I’m starting for any Potter fans out there) and J Money shares a compiled list of bloggers’ net worth for us to rank ourselves against.
  • Final one isn’t a single post in particular but a great site I was just made aware of with some really great curated content Thanks to Erin at Red Debted Step Child and Johnny Moneyseed!

*Note – this is even more late because I couldn’t get the stupid hotel WiFi to work until this morning. #firstworldbloggerproblems. Have a great week folks.

    Thanks for the shout! Glad you enjoyed the article :)

      It was great. And timely – I had actually just worked out my net worth for a future post (and goal tracking). Maybe I’ll make it to your list some day.

      • J. Money

        That’s smart to do with or without being on my list :) But yes – please do let me know if you end up posting about it!

  • Grayson @ Debt Roundup

    Thanks for including me Jack. I appreciate the support and I hope you are doing alright while traveling!

    • Jack

      Absolutely Grayson. Travel is going well. Very busy so not able to get to twitter nor read much. I’ll make up for it on the weekend. At a great conference – giving me lots of ideas for future posts.

  • Matt @ momanddadmoney

    Thanks for the shout out! Nice teaser about your little experience. You’ve peaked my interest.

    • Jack

      :) I expect to push the publish button tomorrow. You’ll have to let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by Matt.
