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 blog management company, along with another blog. It is Empowered Shopper, which helps people get information about products they want to buy. You can also check out Eyes on the Dollar, which is a great blog that I co-own.
