Here’s what we had going on in the MoneyBlogNetwork (and more) this week. It was a light posting week for me as I’ve been quite busy with life, but everyone else has been blogging like mad:
* Free Money Finance has some ideas for convincing kids that college is a good idea, and it’s all about earning potential.
* There’s an “intense” discussion going on at Blueprint about pfblogs.org, the great new ad-free personal finance blog aggregator. The discussion is really about pfblog.org’s dot-com cousin (not really related), whose webmaster added advertising to take advantage of those providing content for the site. Call me crazy, but I tend to get worked up about certain issues.
* Madame X uses the tool of subtraction to determine she’d be better off using her own peanut butter to spread on bagels.
* Cap has a disutrbing story about an experience with Emigrant Direct in which they closed and reopened his account, effectively skipping out on the interest due to him.
* And lastly (there was a lot this week — all elsewhere, not so much here), NCN is celebrating because he is officially debt-free!
