Top Personal Finance Posts Of The Week – New Years Edition

Posted January 1st, 2012 in Blog Carnival by Jeremy Waller

Happy New Year! Hope you partied hard and rang in the new year with a bang.

Truth be told, I probably would have gone to bed at 10:00pm in New Years Eve if I could have…Guess I’m just boring that way…

This week’s roundup is a combo of the blog carnival and goal setting/new years resolution posts from my fellow bloggers.

Top Posts of the Week

My University Money posted Bah Humbug! Presents Make No Economic Cents – “Christmas has turned into a holiday of commerce, and we don’t agree with it.”

Dividend Growth Investor posted Margin of Safety in Dividends – “Dividend investing is a form of value investing, where investors do not realize all of their return all at once, but rather on regular and consistent intervals. Dividends provide a direct link between the financial performance of a company, and the returns of its shareholders.”

Aaron Hung posted Make Money with Dividend Stocks – “When it comes to making a little money online, I believe one of the best ways to do that is by investing some of your hard-earned money in dividend stocks. The biggest mistake people make is by leaving their money in a savings account earning 0.5% interest and not taking advantage of what the market has to offer.”

Rat Race Exodus posted How do your Saving Habits Rank vs. a Squirrel’s? – “Squirrels are better than us at saving. Learn to trick yourself into saving like a Squirrel.”

The Debt Myth posted How to Stick to Your “Get Out of Debt” Resolution – “If your New Year’s resolution is to get out of debt, you’re not alone. It’s one of the top resolutions every year. Now we all know that many resolutions fall by the wayside in a matter of weeks or months, but getting out of debt doesn’t have to be one of them. You can reach that life-changing goal. Here’s how to stick to your get out of debt resolution.”
