The Simple Dollar Morning Roundup: Be My Digg Friend Edition

Yesterday, I signed up for a Digg account in order to start sharing the interesting links that I find. Basically, I’m going to submit my morning roundup links, a few of the best ones from The Simple Dollar, and a few more links each day that I find interesting. If you’d like to keep tabs on what I add, here’s my profile – it might also be worthwhile to add me as a friend on there, too, if you’re a frequent user.

I also have some big news… but that can wait until a bit later today.

    You know, last night I told my wife “I bet Trent is going to include my article in his roundup tomorrow”. Sure enough you did. Thanks! Glad you liked it. I think more guys (and ladies) need to know this information and the risks of relaxing your guard in the workplace.

  5. Trent says:

    Well, the big news isn’t THAT big… just a nice milestone.
