Friday Blog Roundup – 4/28/17

Welcome to the weekly blog roundup. My goal is to provide links to educational content as well as personal finance posts that I enjoyed. Check it out!Welcome to another edition of the Friday Blog Roundup. This installment will be a bit different from previous ones. While I will still be sharing some interesting personal finance posts that I came across during the week, I won’t be covering a specific financial topic. Going forward, these topics will be a once-a-month feature instead. Either way, I hope you enjoy this week’s selections!

    Thanks for the mention, SRGO.

    These days, I don’t spend nearly as much. I have more fun brewing my own — I’ve got a cider, a Northeast IPA, and a black IPA fermenting at the moment.

    Cheers!

      Sounds like some tasty concoction you got there. I’m definitely thinking about getting into home brewing in the not-to-distant future. Thanks for stopping by!
