Round Up

The Weekly Debt Roundup Digest – 5/5/2013

Debt Roundup Personal Finance DigestHappy Cinco de Mayo everyone!  I hope you are enjoying the day.  If you didn’t realize, I am bringing back my weekly roundup, but under a little different format and on a different day.  I have always enjoyed other sites featuring my work, so I wanted to return the favor.  I used to do this when I first started blogging, but when I redesigned the site, that type of post just fell to the wayside.  I am not dedicated to bringing it back.

Meet the Weekly Debt Roundup Digest

The DR Digest is going to be a simple collection of great reads for the week.  I read a lot of articles throughout each and every week.  I want to share these great works with my readers in hopes that you can find something that might help you in your financial journey.  I can’t possibly list all of the awesome articles out there each and every week, so I am going with my top 12 list again.  I like to be a little different and 12 is so much cooler than 10.  So, I hope you enjoy the resurrection of the weekly roundup.

I'm a business owner, blogger, father, and husband. I used credit cards too much and found myself in over $50,000 in debt. I paid it off, started this blog, and my financial life has changed. I now talk about fighting debt and growing wealth here. I run a Wordpress management company, along with another blog. It is Empowered Shopper, which helps people get information about products they want to buy.
