Blog-of-the-week: for the weeks 8/13 & 8/20

This is a little late due to a much deserved vacation but, here it goes:

The blog of the week for the week of 8/13 would have to go to Mapgirl for her blog "Caveat Lector" which explains in detail why she doesn't really give specific advice to readers on finance. Honestly, unless we specifically state we are finance professionals with a financial planning certificate you should take any advice with a grain of salt. Honestly, even then, do you really want to take free advice from a complete stranger about what to do with your nest egg? I don't & won't - thank you very much. Read up on your own situation and/or contact a professional! (Honorable mention to Basil at Bizarro World for his post on how he is looking more like a Hobo as he pursues debt-freedom - I can definitely relate)

The blog of the week for this past week of 8/20 would go to Money, Matter and More musings - it turns out scientists from OSU (Ohio Love!) have determined that you don't have to be smart to be rich. Well that's a little bit of a relief! So don't ever say you're 'too stupid' to be rich or wealthy - you could be a PhD and broke due to student loans! I actually might know one or three people who are in a situation similar to that now.

Bottom line, you don't need to be a rocket scientist or a member of Mensa to be wealthy. Look at Paris Hilton...OK bad example; look at Dave Thomas.
