June was a good month: I was finally able to complete my Roth IRA series (look for the final part soon — I’m still researching answers to your questions); I was able to devote time to writing a couple of personal entries about the psychology of personal finance, which is one of my favorite subjects; and, best of all, we had some excellent discussions. You guys are awesome.
July is going to be crazy. I leave mid-month for three weeks in London, Dublin, and New York. In the real world, we have our housesitter planned and all of our bills paid. On the web, I have a roster of great guest articles slated. I think you’ll enjoy them. (If you want to contribute something, drop me a line.)
Here are some of the best GRS articles from the month of June:
- June 1st: Ask the readers: Is it better to invest or to prepay a mortgage?
