Every Tuesday, I will post a link roundup of articles I’ve found while researching the Internet. This is the “New” Edition! Not to be confused with “New Edition”, the 1980s R&B group. But new…as in this website! I am excited to present Personal Finance Journey. The website “officially opened” on February 1, 2010, however, I’ve been writing articles throughout the month of January. I hope you’ll find the information here useful. Below are just a few of the awesome personal finance articles I came across last week. Check them out!
