The Friday Feast ~ the 26th of August

  1. I love these Friday Feasts. Quite the impressive collection of blogs you must keep up with.

    I couldn’t agree more with Long Haul Trekker’s post of the week. Definitely some great posts featured here.

  2. Thanks for the shout out!

    I think it’s worth questioning a lot of the conventional wisdom out there about things like the value of college, private vs. public school, and engineering vs. liberal arts. Sometimes the conventional wisdom is right (the analysis in my blog about “Is college worth it” pretty clearly shows that college is worth the time and money), but I think in other cases it’s not (I don’t think pricy private schools are worth it).

    I’m hoping to dig into some of these other topics soon.

    1. You’re very welcome. Conventional wisdom is a killer. There is so much MORE that most people can do with their lives than what conventional wisdom would have them believe.

  3. I appreciate the mention, Steve!

    I was also featured on Rockstar Finance today which makes this already fabulous Friday, even more fantastic!

    Have a great weekend. I’m looking forward to checking out some of the sites you pointed out above. 🙂

  4. Thanks again for putting these together. Makes for good Saturday morning reading and I always find a new blog I hadn’t heard of.

    I am looking forward to Wednesday’s article. $1MM seems to be the magic # that is so often thrown around.

  5. Nice round up here Steve! 🙂
    All the best with that trip to Colorado, would love to hear a post on that one as a big fan of trekking/hiking, if you’ll be doing any

    1. Thanks Jef – we will definitely do quite a bit of hiking. Should be fun, and living in Arizona during the summer, we could certainly use the fresh air!
