I’ve been swamped by stories from GRS readers lately. I’ll do my best to get most of these posted before I leave for Europe.

Earlier this month we debated whether it’s better to invest or to prepay a mortgage. On a related note, Lynn at The New Homemaker has a nice introduction to the bi-weekly mortgage. It’s worth reading if you’ve considered going this route.

Jim from Blueprint for Financial Prosperity and FMF from Free Money Finance are teaming together to raise money for the Make-a-Wish Foundation. They’re each matching reader donations up to $500. Go lend them a hand!

Finally, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention a couple of interviews I’ve done recently. They’re blogging-centric (as opposed to money-centric), but may give you some background on this site if you’re new here. Kevin Mulligan has posted the first part a conversation we had. At Daily Blog Tips, Dan posted a side-by-side interview with me and my colleague, Trent from The Simple Dollar. I’ve also completed an interview for Canadian Dream; I’ll link to that when it appears. (I plan to interview him soon, too!)

If you have a personal finance story you’d like to share, please drop me a line. I’m also looking for a few guest entries in the coming weeks — if you’d like to contribute to the site, let me know.
