Where Did You Go? Blogroll Time

I’m in the process of updating my blogroll (which I do about once a year) this week and I noticed some some have been sold and now have new owners, some have stopped updating, and some (gasp!) are gone. Crazy how much things can change in a year. Besides removing some sites that have gone or I’ve haven’t read in awhile, I’ve add some new ones, including:

While I don’t do link exchanges with my blogroll, I do enjoy discovering other personal finance sites, so please feel to email me about a site you love or mention them below in the comments so others can see!

Favorite Personal Finance Posts

Feeling the need to spread the word on some incredibly fun and informative personal finance blogs, I found some posts that I’d thought you would enjoy.

  • Investing in Lego: I didn’t realize how profitable the tiny bricks can be, but there’s a fairly developed market for buying and selling certain collections. I got excited for all of two seconds, since all my husband’s Lego collection have been opened and used. (He had a massive box of them that he claims he’s saving for when our daughter is older. She’s not happily playing around with her Duplos.)
  • 2014 Tax Brackets, Standard Deductions, and Other Changes: It’s that time of the year where Human Resources sends over all the paperwork for insurance, flex spending accounts, and W-4s so taxes are on our minds. Mike from Oblivious Investor gives the numbers making it that much easier for me.
  • Achieving Your Goals Takes Time: Beating Broke’s design has been dramatically updated (looks good!), but the handy posts are still there.  With 2014 approaching I know some couples are looking at their goals for the next year, hoping to do better.
  • Top Online Saving Accounts of 2014: Go Banking Rates gave their favorites and I’ll just quickly add my two cents and say that we use Ally and they have served us well. If you’re thinking of making a switch from your current bank, please review GoBankingRates picks.

To get all of my Twitter updates as they happen (or to just chat with me), please follow me here.
