The first spin-off from my original personal blog was a blog in which my roommate and I chronicled our adventures in physical exercise through jogging, about 7 years ago. I’ve finally gotten up off my butt again. Each day this week, I’ve been taking laps around my apartment complex after work. Actually, I missed Wednesday as I went to dinner with my boss and returned home late. This time around, I won’t be logging my jogging progress for the world to read. Instead, here are a few articles from around the web, starting with the MoneyBlogNetwork.
