I had fun reading some of the posts in the PF Blogosphere this week. They weren’t necessarily about personal finance, but they’re definitely worth rounding up so you can enjoy them too.
First, a word from our sponsors…I mean myself. I put together a non-post informational page on the tax implications of Cash for Clunkers. I’ll be updating it as more information comes out. Now, on to the craziness and information.
Met up for drinks with J. Money from Budgets are Sexy and a number of other PF bloggers on Friday. We got into a great discussion of his article on fun finance survey answers including the question of whether money is better than sex. Well, we’re all PF bloggers, but money didn’t always win.
And speaking of sex and money, the Weakonomist shared a lurid tale of infidelity and insider trading which is good for some schaudenfreude.
While on vacation, I discovered and wasted a good deal of time on the site It’s Lovely, I’ll Take It! (Lovely Listing) which collects the worst photos and excerpts from Real Estate listings. It’s a fantastic read that leaves you asking “What were they thinking?” over and over. In contrast to that, Pinyo wrote a great post this week at Moolanomy on how to sell your house fast. I think it should be sent to all the homeowners (and Realtors if applicable) who ended up on Lovely Listing!
Monavie is trying to sue Lazy of Lazy Man and Money! It may just be a scare letter, but they’re worried about how high his posted criticism of Monavie rates on Google and how much attention it’s attracted from commenters.
Which is better, being unemployed and holding out for a better job or taking a job with a pay cut? No Debt Plan guest posted at Cash Money Life and explained why he thinks taking a pay cut is the better choice.
For frugal folk, when should you tell someone that you’re just getting too good a deal? Mighty Bargain Hunter wants to know what you do when an item is priced way to low.
And over on No Debt Plan’s own site, the article on how to take the GMAT successfully caught my eye. I’m preparing for the GRE this fall and some of the same advice applies.
