New Blogroll Stuff

Anonymous asked me to add The Boxcar Kids to my blogroll, which seemed fair since I not only read that blog, I often reference it in my own blog.

While I was doing that, I decided to check out the rest of the links. Big mistake! I wound up fixing a bunch of previous link errors, adding some new-to-me blogs, and removing those bloggers who haven't posted in the last six months. (But I'd be happy to put those bloggers back if they'd start up again. Bluebird, KemKem, and Immer--that would be YOU! And "Fighting Foreclosure--Getting Nine Hundred," you're getting perilously close to my six month mark!)

Check out "$647,000 in Debt and Unemployed," which is the no-longer-accurately-titled blog of a young Iraq vet who got caught up disastrously in the world of real estate speculation and is slowly working his way out. Dealing with life, school and bi-polar disorder isn't making it any easier, but this raw blog is actually quite inspiring.

Also, stop by the Donna Freedman (who famously wrote an article about living on $12,000 a year) blog at "Surviving and Thriving." She relays tips on frugality and gives away Godiva Chocolate--what better combination?

I've also added a couple of blogs I've been reading for awhile now--I don't know why they weren't on my blogroll already: "M is for Money" and "Always the Planner."

Finally, I added "Tough Money Love" and "The Po File" to my list since both of these gentlemen often comment here. Both have posts that are generally contrary to mine, but are still provocative and thoughtful.

Thank you for including me in your blogroll. I post every day, so I won't flunk your "six months and you're out" criterion.

MasterPo thanks you for the link.

Thanks for the new additions Grace! I always start by reading your blog and then click thru to many of the others on your blogroll!

Hey there! I've been a lurker but I've always enjoyed your thoughtful comments on other blogs. If you have a chance, please stop by mine.

I'm not a prolific blogger like Donna but I do try to post 3-5 times a week. :)
