Friday Blog Roundup – 3/17/17

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 the Friday Blog Roundup, something that I hope will become a weekly feature on SomeRandomGuyOnline.  Here I plan on sharing articles covering a specific financial topic as well as some interesting personal finance posts that I came across during the week.  I hope you enjoy!

 

Backdoor Roth IRA

I’m glad that I learned about the Backdoor Roth before I became an attending physician.  I was able to hit the ground running and not have any missed contributions.  There are already so many quality articles about the Backdoor Roth.  Rather than reinvent the wheel and write my own post, I will instead share a few articles that I found helpful when I was first learning about this topic.

 

Personal Finance Blog Roundup

Regular readers know that one of my primary financial goals is to pay off my $300k of student loan debt.  While that is certainly a hefty amount, there are others out there with even more.  The engineer and dentist couple over at Debt Ascent talk about how they’re paying off over $500,000 of student loan debt.

Everyone knows that taking control of your finances can be tough.  Sometimes you have to make painful decisions in order to cut costs, especially if you’re trying to save money and get out of debt.  To that end, NinjaBudgeter talks about Why I Drive a $500 Car.

Most of us have some sort of emergency fund.  But is that enough?  Ty over at Get Rich Quick’ish shares his Financial Emergency Plan.

My experience with Wall Street and day trading is limited to the movies.  That’s okay because I can live vicariously through these two bloggers.  The Wall Street Physician tells us How Wall Street is Like a Game of High-Stakes Poker, while Stuart at Epic Quiver gives us his insight into the schedule of an active day trader.

 

Thanks for reading the first of what I hope will be many Friday Blog Roundups.  Have a great weekend!
