Wait, what is going on here? Why is the Weekly Roundup coming out on Saturday? Well, my friends, I am making some changes here at Debt Roundup. I have been running hard to try and get into a rhythm that I enjoy. I have been inundated with guest post requests and people that want me to guest post on their site. I am just trying to find the time. Starting this week and going forward, I will no longer be posting my weekly roundup on Friday.
The reason why I am doing this is because I feel that I have lost a little of my own voice here, which is not what I wanted. I have let guest posters fill my empty slots with their own opinions. I don’t mind guest posting, but I don’t want it to fill up my entire week. People come here to read what I have to say and how I feel about things, so I am making an effort to start posting every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I will leave Tuesdays and Thursdays for guest posts. There will be some days where you see two posts because I had agreements with others to post their article, but for the most part, this is the new schedule.
I didn’t feel that I wanted to cut my voice down to just 2 days, so I am moving the Roundup to Saturday. I think it will allow me one more day to read up on some great articles, so I can include them in my Top 12. I hope you enjoy my new schedule. Ok, enough of that, on to this week’s roundup.
Website of the Week
Johnny and Joanna are the creative minds behind this site. I have been following their work for quite some time and I love it. They have such an awesome way of creating posts and making you think. I also enjoy how they tag team their blog together. Talk about team work! They are going through much of what I am with a new baby, so I like to see what they are doing. If you haven’t checked our Our Freaking Budget, then please go do so. They are both awesome people and have a passion for their freaking budget!
There are two large giveaways that are still going on, so please don’t lose out on your chance for free money. If I could enter, I would, so just take my entries and win!
Top Personal Finance Blog
Last week, I told you that I was nominated along with many other great blogs to become the Top Personal Finance blog of 2012. Since I am a little guy, I probably don’t have much of a chance against some of the longer running blogs, but if you enjoy Debt Roundup, please consider voting for me. I would really appreciate it.
If you are in the voting mood, head over to Modest Money to vote for your favorite Canadian personal finance blog.
There were a good amount of people that mentioned Debt roundup this week, so I thank you kindly. I really appreciate the support and apologize for not being as kind as of late. I am running on very little sleep, so it is amazing that I am able to fully dress myself. Here is some love back to my dearest friends.
Weekly Top 12
This is getting harder and harder each week. With over 100 new articles in my reader each and every day of the work week, it is getting hard to choose.
