Sometime in the next four-five days I am going to be a dad again. My second child is on the way any day and we can’t be anymore excited about it. It has been three years since we had a newborn in the house so I am sure I have lost the touch but I hope it is like riding a bike. My plan right now is to run some guest posts for next week so we can get settled in and adjusted and then get back on the wagon with regular posts again. I hope you enjoy the posts and don’t miss me too much. Oh and if you follow me on Twitter you will probably know when the baby is born and you may even get a pic.. In other news I became a friend of PFblogs.org this week so you will now see my posts in a neato red box on their aggregator. Now on to the five posts I selected from my Twitter faithful:
@Matt_SF with Steadfast Finances had a great list of ten benefits of using a headhunter. Now to be honest I picked this for the picture, seriously though it is a great list and he makes good points for the use of a headhunter. I dont’ know that you would ahve this option in all industries but there are a large amount of hunters out there.
@NealFrankle, the Wealth Pilgrim, had a broken toilet and wrote a great article about his adventure in toilet repair. I personally like to think of myself as a handy guy so I wouldn’t think twice about repairing the toilet. It is good to get the perspective from the other side though.
@MoneyManagement from Blogging for Change ran a piece on the other consumer reporting agency. My wife used to work at a bank so I had heard about ChexSystems before. It is crazy to think that past mistakes, like bouncing checks, could keep you from being able to open up a bank account at another instituition.
@BeatingBroke seems to have got beaten down, but not out, recently when his wife decided to quit her job. This is a great article that shows how money is not the only factor in maintaining a job. Employers who suck are going to lose employees regardless of how much they pay them, hopefully the final chapter of this story turns out prosperous.
@ToughMoneyLove begs the question what lessons have you learned from the great recession? This article explores some of the lessons you can take away from this epic economic downturn. My favorite point of the article is “When it comes to managing the economy, there are no experts.”
That is it for me this week, if you want to be included in next weeks Friday roundup follow me on Twitter and send me a link to your best post of the week on Thursday. See ya next week, well a little bit but I will probably be busy with the new baby.
