Welcome to another blog love edition – Friday’s Fab Links #38! Hope you’ve had a good week? This week has been much more productive for me in terms of juggling work and parenting whilst my little girl is home every day due to school holidays.
Because my hubby has been away a lot lately, I didn’t feel at all bad about not turning the TV on for the last week and working every evening until 11pm.
I’ve managed to write some blog posts in advance (thanks for sharing your tip last week E.M.) and do some freelancing work in addition to my day job, so things are pretty good right now!
Here are my favourite recent posts from the personal finance blogosphere:
Sheila from The Frugal Exerciser posted The 30 Day Inner and Outer Thigh Challenge. I’d like to tone up a bit so when I saw Sheila’s home workout challenge, I knew this was the perfect fitness regime to try out. I’m almost through week 1 of Sheila’s challenge and I’m really enjoying it so far! Much more than I ever enjoyed my £60 per month gym membership back in the day.
Michelle from Making Sense of Cents published her income report for last month – $14,937 in July – My Highest Income Month. Whenever I read Michelle’s income reports I am always really inspired. Michelle started out earning a little extra money a month back in 2012 and she’s achieved so much since then!
Joshua at CNA Finance published Chasing Traffic – Why Most Bloggers Fail. This is part 9 of Joshua’s series which looks at the reasons why some bloggers give up or fail with their blogs. Traffic is one thing that every blogger wants – because without readers, a blog can’t grow. In this post, Joshua explains why certain ways of getting traffic may be more of a hindrance rather than a help to a blogger.
If you’ve ever been guilty of spending mindsets such as, “it’s been a hard day, buying this will make it better!” or “everyone else has one”, you’ll enjoy this post by Dr. Jason Cabler over at Enemy of Debt – How to Talk Yourself Out of Debt by Creating a New Script. Jason explains how you can use new mindsets to stop yourself buying something that you really shouldn’t.
