Roundup and Link Love – Restful October Weekend Edition

by Ron Haynes


Now that the yard is mowed, let the rest begin. I’ve worked 18 out of the last 19 days in a row and I’m pretty worn down. Kinda funny since I’ve recommended recently that people get plenty of rest, huh? I need to follow my own advice!

The Wisdom Journal popped up over 1,500 readers recently, and I want to say a sincere thank you to each one of my subscribers. I truly appreciate the confidence you’ve shown by subscribing to this blog and checking out what I’ve written. Thank you.

Here’s some other great blogs you can check out this beautiful October weekend. This is a pretty big list, but I’m reading them all!

Congrats on 1,500 readers! :)

Frugal Dad

Thanks for the mention, and congrats on topping 1500 subs–here comes 2000! I enjoyed a lazy afternoon after a busy morning of yard work, garage cleanout, etc. We picked up a used recliner from a yard sale as ours was ready to be put out by the curb (wood frame just about shot), and I spent the afternoon “breaking it in” while watching the Tide hold off Ole Miss.

ABCs of Investing

Congrats on the 1500.

Quite a collection of links! Wow….

Jeff@MySuperChargedLife

Congrats on 1500 subscribers! I can remeber when we both had less than 100. Thanks for linking up to my budgeting article and for leaving a comment on my blog back around the first of the year. Has it only been 10 months or so? It seems like we’ve been blogging a lot longer!

Lazy Man and Money

Thanks for the link. This is quite a list of reading. It will take me some time to go through it all.

ChristianPF
