Today I have a special treat for you - Financially Digital is hosting this weeks Yakezie Personal Finance Blog Carnival. If you aren’t familiar with the Yakezie it’s an amazing group of personal finance bloggers that is always striving to put out content that is designed to really provide value for the readers. You won’t find any kind of spammy or sales-y type bloggers and posts here. I’ve had the opportunity to get to know a few of these bloggers over the past couple of months/years and I am proud to be able to showcase their works and hope that you take a few minutes and hop around in some of the links.
These are my top choices for this weeks carnival! So you’ll see a link to the blogger’s post and then a quick one liner type description. Enjoy!
Fat Guy Skinny Wallet - Awesome blog that documents how you can get healthy and manage your personal finance life all at the same time.
Financial Samurai - Sam is living not just the life I think I want for myself eventually but he does an amazing job with each and every one of his posts. Always well thought out and super packed with real information (read: reality).
Budgeting in the Fun Stuff - Crystal always manages to leave me smiling! I love her “Fit in a Fun Friday” posts, definitely worth a visit to her site.
