Best Personal Finance Blog Articles of 2012: Week 22
Welcome to the best blog articles of the week – Twitter Edition. The following are stories from some of the bloggers that I follow and interact with regularly on Twitter. I learn about a lot of new resources, get tips on how to save money, and share news with these great folks.
What’s interesting is that I probably would have never met them, had it not been for connections made during conversations on the platform. I guess the ease of connecting with people who have similar interests is what makes Twitter so engaging.
I highly encourage you to take a moment out of your weekend to read these informative and inspiring blog articles.
