I have decided that Sunday would be an excellent day for a weekend reading post. Most people can sit down and relax for a while before their hectic week starts all over again so I thought it would be a perfect time to share some interesting reading material from my fellow bloggers.
I’ve been included in my first ever Yakezie Carnival and it feels great. There are lots of interesting posts from many bloggers in the Yakezie network. I would really like to thank The Amateur Financier for hosting the carnival this week and to my fellow Yakezie bloggers:
Part of the Yakezie Challenge is to selflessly promote others so I’d like to share some postings from some of my fellow challengers:
After College Money shares how he paid off $15,000 of student loans in one year. Great job, Eric!
American Debt Project tells about their 2012 savings goals.
Personal Finance Whiz asks how much he should have saved for retirement by the time he is 30. I wish I could write a post like that
Kamara over at The Modern Financial tells us to stop waiting for the new year to make RRSP contributions.
The Dividend Ninja asks us why we should invest in bonds. I’m not a huge fan of buying someone’s debt, but having diversity in one’s portfolio is always a good thing.
I’d also like to share with you some posts from my own, personal blog roll:
The Passive Income Earner lets you assess if the Smith Manoeuvre is right for you. I personally think it could be to risky, especially with a monster mortgage.
Susan Brunner gives us her take on Just Energy. I don’t agree with their business model either.
The Dividend Guy compares the top 4 Canadian REITS.
Brad at Triage Investing Blog talks about the best time to make extra mortgage payments. I’m a firm believer in lump sum payments.
Dividend Monk shows us 6 solid dividend payers from the states. I’m pretty sure everyone knows these brands and I’m looking into GE myself.
Dividend Watchdog wrote about the latest dividend increase from CN.
My Own Advisor wrote about how credit cards can be better than cash. I think credit cards are great tools, but are dangerous in the hands of fools.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend, folks!
