The Simple Dollar Morning Roundup: Facebook Edition

Some of you might notice that along the top of the website, I added a link to the menu that says “Facebook.” It goes to my Facebook profile, which is still a bit of a work in progress. I decided to join Facebook and use it as a place to post more “meta”-oriented stuff related to things happening on The Simple Dollar, as well as my own interests – perhaps a bit more of a “personal” thing than what you’ll see here. If it sounds interesting, keep an eye on it or perhaps add me as a friend on there.

    My car has almost 180,000 miles, it is very slowly starting to die but I don’t think I’ll be able to save enough cash for another one (I’m paying off my credit card). I estimate it will run for another 3-5 months before its finally time to replace it and I’ll probably will have to get a loan to purchase another one :(
