Happy Friday, fellow debt wranglers. This week has gone by quite quickly, but it was still very productive. My wife and I are in a waiting game for our little debt wrangler to come. He technically isn’t supposed to be here until the 20th, but my wife is more than ready now. I hate waiting, but this is something that I don’t mind waiting for. If you try to get a hold of me in the next few weeks, don’t get upset if I don’t respond to you immediately, I might be a little overwhelmed!
As I indicated, this week has been busy for me. My full-time job is running at a nice clip, keeping me busy each and every day. Debt Roundup is growing very nicely with my Alexa ranking about to drop below 200k. My twitter account is doing well with many more followers, especially after the successful $100 giveaway that I was a part of.
P.S. The giveaway ends tonight 12/14, so make sure you have entered to win. I mean, it’s free money!
I have begun to follow many more great personal finance sites and I have enjoyed interacting with all of them. This space is so diverse and the opinions of everyone is fascinating. I have added more websites to my Personal Finance Blog List along with adding all of those on the list to my PF Blog Randomizer.

This is a reminder that I am looking to all the personal finance bloggers and website owners for their best financial tips.

Search Term of the Week
The search term for this week is a little out there. I am not sure if they were trying a new Star Wars reference, but….
“may the newtype be with you” – I don’t even know how you got to my site and I am still not sure what you are looking for, but I think it is “may the force be with you”!
Awesome Personal Finance Finds
Sometimes it amazes me that there can be so many great articles regarding personal finance. What many think is a dull subject, personal finance can have so many angles and opinions. I hope you enjoy this week’s articles from some of the best bloggers and websites. If you have time today and over the weekend, make sure to read them, comment, and maybe follow these people. You can learn a lot from them.
