Top Personal Finance Posts of The Week

October is going by so fast! Just barely over a week and it will be November, which is the beginning of my favorite eating-season of the year.

Well since it’s Friday that means it’s time for my weekly roundup of the top personal finance posts of the week.

In no particular order, here is this week’s list:

Gerry Sandis presents 28 Questions To Ask Yourself Before Accepting A Job Offer posted at RESUMEMag, saying, “You may have spent the last few weeks, or even months, looking for a job and it can be very tempting to immediately accept the first thing that comes your way. Remember, this is going to be your new career, so you don’t want to be too hasty with your decision. Take your time to evaluate the offer and consider the following questions:”

J.B presents Would You Rather Be “Book Smart” or “Handy”? posted at My University Money. He ponders, “He might be book smart…but I’m street smart. Thats better, isn’t it?”

Jason Price offers a practical post on a common topic in the personal finance world: Do You Use Dave Ramsey’s Debt Snowball to Pay Off Debt?

Insurance Quotes Blog has a nice roundup of the 9 Personal Finance Posts Every Couple Should Read

Steve R presents What to Expect after Receiving an IRS Certified Letter saying, “Receiving an IRS certified letter may be a huge shock. You walk out for your mailbox one day, inspect unsolicited mail and bank statements, and then you see it.”

Boomer presents Does Your Job Define You? posted at Boomer & Echo, saying, “One of the first questions a new acquaintance will ask you is, “What type of work do you do?” Do you define yourself by what you do for a living?”

The Top Personal Finance Post of The Week

And my favorite post of the week is…..

How To Evaluate Stocks For Investment by Invest With Passion. The post talks about using a SWOT analysis to evaluate a company you a looking to invest in. I think this is a great way to pick stocks.

So many people rely on technical indicators that can change with the wind. You shouldn’t invest in a company because some indicator says it’s a good buy. You should invest because you think the company is going to perform well over the next 10 to 20 years. A SWOT analysis is a great way to look at this.

If you have a personal finance site and you think one of your posts should be included next week, submit it here!

Have a great weekend!
