I had a blast around here in July, and I’m very proud of the articles I produced.
After several months of writing what I thought you wanted me to write, I loosened up and just wrote about the things that interested me. I felt like I was taking a risk — what if you’re not interested in the same financial stuff I am? — but after having done this for several weeks, I’m glad I did it. We had some great discussions this month at Get Rich Slowly, and we covered some topics that I’d been neglecting.
Here are some of the best posts from July:
- July 1st: Good-bye, Microsoft Money! 16 powerful personal finance programs
- July 3rd: Ask the readers: Save more or see the world?
- July 7th: An introduction to money market accounts
- July 10th: Employee or entrepreneur? The pros and cons of self-employment
- July 17th: How to buy a mattress (a guest post from Justin)
- July 19th: Impulse spending: The present and the past
- July 22nd: Lower your expectations, increase your happiness
- July 27th: How to budget for an irregular income
