It has been another busy week for me, but I’ve managed to find time to read a few other blogs here and there. Linked below are some articles I found interesting.
This week I’m planning on posting an interview with the creators of MoneyStrands, which is a spending & financial tracking program, similar to Mint or Wesabe. I’m also anticipating talking about wills & estate planning. I may even have a guest post from another blogger, and of course, life happens so we’ll check in with current events if need be.
Have a great week and stay tuned for updates. If you haven’t subscribed yet, enter your e-mail address in the box to the right and you’ll get updates in your e-mail automatically.
