Although it’s technically Saturday here, that’s close enough to my Friday Night Fights (where blogs battle for my attention). Check out the hand-selected articles below. If they were worth my time reading, they’re at least worth a click.
Some separate site news. Sort of quiet this week, I’ve been working behind the scenes. Wrote an interesting guest post for Sweating The Big Stuff, which will appear Monday, and have been drafting questions for a VERY exciting interview with a writer at CBS Marketwatch.
Stay tuned… and while you’re waiting – check out the links below!
Here’s a few interesting articles for your weekend pleasure:
A quick and to the point post, Beating Broke looks at the correlation between fitness and frugality. Maybe that’s why I like(d) feisty frugal fitness females!! *until I found the ultimate one, my fiance :)
As a proponent of ING, I’ve hit pay dirt. Two-for-one! Evan at My Journey to Millions and Kita at at Personal Finance Journey both talk about their positives experiences. PS – Don’t click on Evan’s links, email me for the same link but from a source you trust ;) *Can’t wait for the response on this one.

Maybe it’s the hypnotic look of that dead, green rat…
Bytta at 151 days off took the time to create our first Yakezie Newsletter. It’s great to take a step back and reflect on the progress we’ve achieved and the highlights of individual’s accomplishments. *How come I didn’t make it on here?
“Okay smarty-pants, you’re an engineer math is EZ for you”. Well who cares because that’s not what personal finance is all about! And its not coming from me, Stay at Home Mom CFO says so herself. Quite the contrary, many times its about the other intangible skills you possess.
I can empathize with Mrs. Money about loaning money to friends, but this is why Suze Orman would be wagging her finger off exclaiming “GIRLFRIEND listen to me…” She discloses something personal to serve as a lesson to others. Unfortunately, if people aren’t good with their money, they probably won’t be any better with yours.
Just because an article isn’t current doesn’t make it any less relevant. Well-heeled blog is well-written, but didn’t give me anything I could work with! Decided to take matters into my own hands and scour her site for something good, and here it is: Women hold up Half the Sky. Specifically pay attention to the last two paragraphs about her own experience.
