Friday Night Links: Money Edition

I have always liked money!  Who doesn’t like money?  Well, there are a lot of you.  What do you mean you ask?  If you really liked money, you would treat it better!  I like money so much that I rarely use it.  Strange, but true!  I rarely use it because it is working for me.  Some may call it passive income others call it investments.  Do you really like money?

Money is not the root of all evil!  Money is an inanimate object; it cannot do anything unless you do something with it. I just choose to save, invest and spend it on things that give me pleasure or value.  You won’t find me at the mall on the weekends or spending more than I earn.  I like money too much to pay the ridiculous interest rates credit card companies charge.  I no longer have a big house because my children are grown. Why pay for something you do not need?  I no longer have fancy cars because I realize that it is not an asset that grows over time.  Simply said, I like money too much to waste it.

Have you ever looked at money as something you liked or as a friend.  Do you treat your friends well?  How do you treat money?  I love to turn things upside down and create a discussion or dialog.  Feel free to tell me how you feel about money in your comments.  Now that I told you I feel about money, I can identify the best or my favorite articles of the week.  This makes a good segue to today’s picks for Friday Night Links.

The following articles caught my attention:

The Wealth Artisan  - Dividend ETFs

Thirty Six Months  10 Ways to Save Money When Buying a New Car

Thousandaire  - Higher Teacher Salaries Won’t Improve Education

Wealth Informatics - Beat the bidding: Priceline bidding strategies for hotels

Young and Thrifty  - Barkerville on a Budget

The selection of blogs is up to the committee of one established by krantcents as a representative of the Academy of Frugal Journalistic Writers. That committee can be influenced by meaningful comments, signing up for my RSS feeds, backlinks, links, trackbacks, Facebook Likes, Twitter, Re-tweets, Digg, StumbleUpon, delicio, Yahoo Buzz, Google Bookmarks and other social media. If you plan on creating a single purpose political action committee (PAC) to buy advertising on my blog to solely influence the committee, please go ahead! Please understand it will not influence the results.

I read more than five hundred (500) articles a week and I highlight just five (5) in my Friday Night Links.  I like money!   Thanks for reading Friday Night Links Money Edition.

I sure like money. Well, not money so much, but the ability to save it, invest it and spend it. There are limits though. As a blogger, while the gains start to become incrementally smaller, you could spend infinite efforts trying to earn more and more online, but your sanity and free-time has a value too. I think I’ve found a decent mix of outsourcing some of my work (designer, staff writer, etc) and still making some extra money each month.

Your outsourcing company is building an asset that earns money. Similar to blogging, it may earn money, but you are building an asset. For me, that is the best use of money.
