The Simple Dollar Weekly Roundup: Site Surfing Edition

I read a lot of personal finance and personal growth sites, a list that changes all the time. My weekly links for this are harvested from that reading.

For the most part, I like articles that have an angle I haven’t thought of, have a nice human touch, or else express an idea very well, so that’s what I link to. If I find myself thinking about an article after I’ve read it, I bookmark it. If I find myself still thinking about it when I put this article together, I usually include it.

I also find that I tend to lean toward articles that I’ve seen linked to on the sites that I read. If I see a particular article linked to several times, I usually wind up reading it a few times and appreciating it for the same reasons that the people linking to the article appreciate it.

If a topic is valuable to you and you want to really understand it, you need to hear from lots of voices and angles on the topic. No one writer is going to always be right, and no one writer is going to be able to match your exact situation. Listen to a chorus, not a soloist.
