Weekly Round Up

Weekly Roundup

Hi Everyone!

So, not only did we have more snow earlier this week, but it is supposed to snow again today. This winter is really wearing me out. Anyway, this week I dedicated my blog to my beloved friend, Rob, who passed away suddenly at 40. He left behind a wife and two beautiful daughters, and his death made me think about how prepared I am for the unexpected. On Monday, I talked about keeping your finances always on your mind as a great first step in financial fitness. Wednesday I shared four ways to prepare for financial emergencies. On Thursday I discussed life insurance and its importance. On Friday I shared a great brunch recipe that uses bagels since I met Rob at the bagel store.

This week I really enjoyed the following posts:

  1. J. Money at Budgets are Sexy recapped his year, and as someone who is new to the blog world, I LOVE recaps and highlights of the year past.
  2. Speaking of recaps, Erin at Broke Millennial celebrated her one year blog birthday and shared some of her highlights and top posts.
  3. Grayson at Debt Round Up discussed the importance of changing your mentality to change your financial situation. He also had a great post on Frugal Rules about paying convenience fees.
  4. David at Young Adult Money wrote a blog about catastrophic health care plans that confused many of us with high deductible plans that I actually researched catastrophic plans on my own so I wouldn’t feel so “blonde.” 🙂
  5. Matt at Mom and Dad Money had life insurance on the brain like me. This week he wrote about how to choose the right type of life insurance.

Next week I am focused on the Super Bowl and becoming a champion of your finances. I have my fingers crossed for a big blog surprise on Wednesday. Send good blog thoughts my way!

She realized that the key to long-term personal financial success is a commitment to financial fitness and making smart financial choices. Through her blog, Financially Blonde, her book, Train Your Way To Financial Fitness, her podcast, Martinis and Your Money and The Financial Gym, Shannon is committed to making financial fitness fun, easy and accessible for everyone.
