Blog Round-Up: Week of February 18, 2013

blog roundup

This week just flew by and it’s already time to highlight the best posts from this past week. I had a hard time picking which ones to feature, but it’s a good problem to have. Without further ado …

The Frugal Farmer shares the impact debt has on her children in Motivation: Do It For the Kids . The awareness of her kids is both heartbreaking and inspiring.

We’ve seen her gorgeous pictures of Guatemala, but Pauline from Reach Financial Independence shares the darker side to a country she loves in What I Hate about Guatemala.

Tonya from Budget and the Beach puts her talents to good use in her hilarious vlog Budgeters Annoynmous. Grab a bowl of popcorn and get ready to laugh!

In The Un-American Way for Saving, Brian from Luke 1428 decides to do something atypical for an American and save for purchases rather than succumb to instant gratification.

Every blogger fears being hacked and unfortunately it happened to The Savvy Scot. He shares a few prevention tips in Your Site or Blog Gets Hacked: How Do You Fix It?.

I’m a new blogger and always on the lookout for great tips. In Blogging Tips: Beginner Part II, John from Frugal Rules offers some helpful advice to new and experienced bloggers.

Shannon from Planet Fassa highlighted Tracy from Less Than Perfect Parents in her featured friend section. I love her belief that happy parents make happy kids. I couldn’t agree more!

Kerry from Breadwinning Mama poses the question Can Career Dreams and Kids Coincide? I say yes. How about you?

They’re talking early retirement at One Smart Dollar and bringing up some excellent points in Can You Afford an Early Retirement?.

    Hi Shannon,

    Well you know I'm a first time visitor to your blog and wanted to come share the love since you were so kind to stop by mine.

    Now look what I ventured into here. You're sharing the love too but pointing us to some great posts you stumbled upon during your blog hopping journeys.

    I'll have to check them out as well and come back to see what you'll be sharing next week.

    Great to see you and thanks for these fun posts. Enjoy your weekend.
