Link Round Up: You Are Still Here Edition

May 22, 2011 · 60 comments

in Link Round Up

Well, I woke up this morning, and the world is still here.  Either I didn’t make the cut, or Judgment Day didn’t happen yesterday.  (I know it was supposed to happen during the late afternoon on Saturday, but I wanted to give the predictor of the end of the world the benefit of the doubt and provide a few hours of leeway.)

I can’t imagine how much money Family Radio made off this whole Judgment Day prediction.  Out of curiosity, I have been trying to access their website, and it just errors out.  I want to see what their thoughts were on the fact that there was not a giant earthquake that would affect the whole world along with the Rapture.  I also want to see how much money Family Radio made off of all of this, considering it was reported that donations were soaring in the wake of their Judgment Day forecast.

Since we are all still here and have internet access, I thought I would provide some reading suggestions in case you are looking for something to do today with all the time you didn’t think you would have.

101 Centavos informs us that the Senate wants to keep us from accessing our 401k loans for emergency loans.   I am so glad our trusty government can provide us with tips on how to handle our money.

Budgeting In the Fun Stuff has created a blogging Empire.  Read about everything she has going on and see if you can use any of services!

Financial Samurai talks about the unemployment rate for college graduates, and how student loans can really make it hard starting out.  (Avoid student loans if you can!)

First Gen American got the bait-and-switch when going to a second-hand sale posted in the newspaper.  Turns out prices were a little more expensive than advertised!  (Well, maybe this situation doesn’t meet the true definition of bait and switch, but you get the idea…)

Invest It Wisely shares some of his political beliefs and why he support Ron Paul for U.S. President.  I wish most Americans knew as much about American politics as Kevin does up in Canada!

KrantCents shares how you can end up a millionaire by making some small changes in your life.  It is amazing how small things can really add up!

Life And My Finances enjoys TV, a lot.  However, he moved into a place that does not have cable and so he was going TV-free.  That is, until he got crafty…

Money Reasons (a.k.a. Pig 3) tells us a bit about his savings journey and gives a little update on his net worth.  Way to go Pig 3!

MoneyCone found a way to watch TV and make grilled cheese sandwiches!  Unfortunately, you can only grill two at a time, so it is probably best to keep the party small if you will use this method.

Retire By 40 is not an extreme couponer, or really even a moderate couponer.  However, it does sound like he just might trying delving into coupons somewhat, assuming the weather isn’t too nice… 🙂

Squirrelers went to Vegas, and didn’t even spend much money! (Neither did anyone else in his party.)  Read the post to see the activities they did!   I have never been to Vegas, but Squirrelers trip sounds pretty darn fun!  I may just have to put Vegas on my list of possible vacations for the future.

Wealth Informatics has a new series called Free Money Friday. This week, you can learn how to watch movies for free!

Thanks for the mention! Yep, we are all still here today, but the next prediction is coming next year… this might get a little tiring.

Thanks for the mention. I am in good company. As an aside, I treat everyday as if it were my last! I try not to put things off and embrace everything I can. That way there are no regrets!

Thanks for the mention. Forgot that the world was supposed to end today….

Donations were up? What did they plan to do with all of it so close to the rapture? Surely they won’t need those funds once they’ve been raised up. 🙂

I can’t believe I’m still here either! But frankly, everybody here in Hawaii enjoying the beach never thought twice about the end of the world.

Hope all is well!

Thanks for the mention. I’m glad we’re all here, and never doubted it!

Thanks for the mention, Kris! I completely forgot it was Judgment Day, and I’m only reading about it now. We seem to pass one or the other every month or so, anyways; just pick your religion or movie. 😉
