Happy Friday! This week I’ve been working on an email sign up incentive – The Gift of Debt ebook, which can be delivered to your inbox for free within about five minutes if you sign up to my mailing list by email. I promise I won’t send you any junk! You can sign up by email over on the right hand side here under the little gravatar which looks a little like me! Side note: I must get a new one done at some point.
You might remember that I worked on this great series back in November last year, with my post: The Gift of Debt: A Taste of Freedom. If you’ve not read the other contributions to this series, they have been bundled together in this handy ebook. The Gift of Debt series was put together with a view to exploring some positives angles on being in debt. Yes really, there are some!
I also wanted to mention that tomorrow I will be co-hosting the next edition of Financially Savvy Saturdays with Femme Frugality. This is a great blog hop where you can submit your personal finance blog posts from the last week for others to read and share. So please check back tomorrow to see what it’s all about!
Here’s my fab links for this week’s great reads:
Lyle at The Joy of Simple explains how he’s planning to save money in 2014 with his Five Simple and Frugal Tips to Save Cash in 2014 and Beyond. Lyle hopes that by saving money in certain areas, he’ll be able to realise his ambition to record his own music CD later this year. Awesome!
Money Bulldog highlighted The Things You Should Never, Ever Do to Save Money. I’ve been guilty of doing a couple of things in order to try to save cash and they have come back to haunt me later.
See Debt Run posted Combating the Urge to Splurge – this is something that I’ve had to work on during my battle with debt. Nowadays, I’m pleased to say I have no desire to spend whatsoever! But back in the day when I splurged on my credit card, I can narrow it down to me feeling emotional or even just plain fed up. Can you relate to any of these emotional triggers when it comes to spending on credit?
Budget Bloggess wrote a great post called Your Net Worth is what?! My Next Mission is a ‘Go to Hell’ Fund. Michelle talks about her net worth, being a UAW and how she’s turning her finances around!
Harry from the Four Hour Work Day wrote an inspirational post on Should You Follow Your Passion? Although I have a day job which I don’t dislike, I’m a big believer in following my passion (I’m kind of doing it right now with blogging actually and am trying to devote more time to another passion of mine). What do you think though? Is following your passion doable or even practical?
I hope you enjoy the above reads and as mentioned before, do check back tomorrow for Financially Savvy Saturdays!
