Link love

We have so many money posts in the queue that if you want to hear #2’s amazing news and how #1 is dealing with her move to paradise, we’re going to have to double up on money posts next week.  Otherwise you wouldn’t be reading about the exciting options for dealing with #1’s commute until a month had passed which would be silly.  (Though perhaps Tuesday is where such an entrancing topic belongs anyway.)

Also headsup to blogspot bloggers– we’ve been having really spotty luck with being able to comment on blogspot sites.  If the wordpress option is the only option we have to leave a comment, it seems like this week we’re allowed one wordpress blogspot comment with the I am not a robot checkbox and then *never again*.  So it’s not that we don’t want to talk about your awesome post or answer your questions, blogspot just won’t approve the comment.  We do seem to be able to leave comments with the Name/Website option and if there’s no spam filter of any kind.  :(

Ok, links this week!  The internet has answered the call for more budgeting posts.  And there are some really good ones.  (Our modo-budgeting post will be up the Monday after next, and at some point #2 will discuss how she and her partner deal with joint finances after having gone through several life changes.)  Here’s a taste of what’s out there:

We LOVED this one by ana about how budgets can be freeing and the steps that she took to get her budgeting situation set up.  A really great post all around.  She’s been on a roll this week with great posts, so check her out if you’re not already a regular (which we are sure you are).

Similarly, Not a Wasted Word has had post after post of great thinky posts this week, so check her out too.  Here’s one that we really liked.

How Budget Blonde finally decided it’s ok to spend money.

Leigh and her budgeting system.

Solitary Diner has also been talking about money lately.  I wanted to tell her that I like to talk about money too, but blogspot wouldn’t let me.  :(  I did get one comment in on this post that was a comment to the Ana post we linked to above.  (I love conversations about doing good stuff with money!)

In other news:

Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg’s awkward interview.

A little summary of #Ilooklikeanengineer

So glad I am not a teacher

Did you know that breaking cat news has an insta?

Can’t unsee this.

YES YES YES to the last paragraph of this post.  You know, you can want more time not working without being a @#$#ing martyr.  It’s ok to want it for whatever reason without guilt being involved in the equation at all.  (Assuming you don’t like torture animals or people or something in  your spare time, obviously.)

Bleh for beautiful closets!  Hilarious illustration with the glass canning jars.

Sending out a novel under a male name.

Awesome response to criticism of how female voices sound on podcasts.

Oh man, the lineup here is stellar.  Too bad I’ll be in ITALY on my HONEYMOON.

We LOVE THIS CARD so much.

Andrew Ti is awesome.

    Thank you for pointing out some blog providers (you mention blogspot) send comments into outer space even after passing the anti-robot test. I thought it was me, or not using a google identifier as I often choose anon rather than posting under my gmail name. When I comment and it never shows up beyond my ego hit, it also prevents the author from seeing the effect and impact of what they wrote and the interest in their perspective. Thank you for highlighting that this happens.
    And, know how much I appreciate your writing and your messages.

    Sorry about the blogspot commenting. My theory is that WP and Blogger are locked in eternal combat with each other to make it tough for the others to comment.

    That Jedi only blew up the first death star. Lando Calrissian and the Millenium Falcon blew up the second.

    Guess I should have prefaced that with a nerd alert (or nerf herder alert? Oh, the nerd, it burns). I do think the song is still pretty cute!
