The Friday Feast ~ the 11th of November

Published November 11, 2016   Posted in Friday Feast

The personal finance community is filled with so many talented writers and inspiring families in search of something better out of life than the traditional society-approved plan of buying lots of stuff and retiring in your 60s if you’re lucky.

Here is a look at the best of this week’s personal finance blogs.

In this episode of Friday Feast: The new Frank Financials video series on YouTube.

readingWelcome to another Friday, and congrats for making it here. This week’s Friday Feast will be different because I have been on travel this week and did not have the time to compile a list of great personal finance reads.

Instead, I am going to take this opportunity to introduce a new series on our YouTube channel called Frank Financials. In this video series, my wife and I will sit down in front of the camera and chat with you good people about finances, budgeting and early retirement.

The Frank Financials video series

Check out our introduction video to the Frank Financials series below. We will publish a new video every Wednesday. We are always looking for questions or suggestions on what you’d like us to talk about. If you have an idea, let’s hear ’em in the comments below.

Coming up in the week ahead on ThinkSaveRetire: On Monday, I am asking (and answering) an important question about whether frugal people have a more difficult life, and on Wednesday, I am publishing another guest post, this time from the one and only Our Next Life!

Thanks for reading, and cheers to another financially productive week ahead!

  1. I love it guys! Great idea to do videos. I agree that people don’t always want to read a blog post, so I think these videos are a great way to mix things up. Looking forward to seeing next week’s video.

  2. Interesting concept for a video series. I have 2 questions: 1- what are your plans for health care in retirement? 2- how are you going to manage state income taxes on blog revenue while traveling. I.e. I gather if you make money while visiting a state sometimes they can tax it. Are you going to do any type of timing of blog income or otherwise to when your in your home state or just bite the complex tax bullet?

      Hi FTF – yup, we definitely plan on doing a video on healthcare. For your second question, we will cross that bridge when we come to it. We will keep our official residency in AZ, so we’ll have to figure out how it works to earn money out of state. Most of it will be below the limit where taxes even apply.

  3. Steve, I love that you’re giving a video series a trial, an interesting media to weave into your arsenal. I’ll be interested to see how it goes.

    Thanks for all you do for our blogging community!

  4. Hey guys, kuddos for shaking things up a little with the introduction of videos! Definitely more enjoyable to watch a video than to read sometimes! I’m looking forward to seeing what you have planned for the next few videos. No questions yet, but I’ll be watching!

  5. Congrats on creating the YouTube channel!!! I’ll need to check out the videos tonight. 🙂

    I’ve been wanted to get into the video creation game too, but man, it’s a lot of work!

    While I enjoyed the video, I’m an oddball – I actually prefer reading blogs. I hope you don’t plan to stop doing those entries too!

  7. Looking forward to seeing more of your videos!

  8. I like the idea of this and keep it fun, the both of you play of each other well and I like the relaxed tone so far. People will appreciate your shared knowledge and experiences so far.

  9. Steve, great videos! Very inspiring, and looking forward to following along with your journey!
