Site Issues, Carnivals and Weekend Reading – Jan 18, 2008

This week was a technically challenging week for MDJ as I botched an upgrade thus making various parts of the site a little buggy.  One thing I noticed was that the post schedule was a little wonky, so thanks for being so patient while I'm working things out.  As per the messed up scheduling, I promised a book giveaway of the book "A Million Bucks by 30".  That contest has been postponed until coming Monday (hopefully)!

Anyways, enough about that, here are some great money related articles I read this week.

  • Plonkee Money hosted this weeks Carnival of Personal Finance.  Out of the editors picks, my absolute favorite was "How I taught my Preschooler the Value of a Dollar".
  • Moolanomy had the great idea of posting the best pf blog posts of 2007 and a bunch of top notch sites participated.  The articles submitted are all worth the read.
  • The Financial Blogger writes about his feelings/stress levels just before a job interview.  I can certainly relate with him on this one.
  • There is some good news and bad news with regards to those with variable rate loans/mortgages.  The good news is that economists predict that the central bank will drop rates by 0.25%.  The bad news is that the banks may not drop prime to match.  You can read a more detailed article by Canadian Mortgage Trends.
  • We've written about tipping policies before, but only on a local basis.  CBC has an article that describes tipping policies for some international cities.

One more thing! 

  • MDJ had the honour of posting a guest article about the basics of RRSP's on one of the bigger pf blogs out there, GetRichSlowly.  Thanks for the opportunity J.D!

Enjoy the weekend!
