The Money Mavens September Roundup

by Jeffrey Kosola on September 17, 2010

UPDATE: The Special Hidden Contest winner is Forest Parks.  Thanks to all who entered and answered correctly (Dave Chapelle was the answer)

This is the first of a monthly roundup I will be doing for the Money Mavens Network.  You can always expect great content from this group and I hope you enjoy these links.  BTW there is a secret chance to win something buried in the post…

Canadian Finance write about a topic that is near and dear to my heart, Unexpected Vehicle Expense.  Nothing makes me more angry than having an unexpected expense from a car.  Advice: always have a seperate fund for this budget item.  This is not an emergency item, so you should not be using your emergency fund to pay for car problems.

Joe from JoeTaxpayer writes a review for the famous book, Super Freakonmics.  It’s a book I’ve had on my list for a little while, and I look forward to reading it.  Anything with Super Freak in the title has to be good, Rick James anyone?  (Special contest: I will give away a $25 Amazon gift card to one lucky reader who can tell me the famous person who said, “I’m Rick James, Bitch!! – I will pick the winner on Sunday September 19th).

Neal from Wealth Pilgrim tells us about Cheap Term Life Insurance – What to Watch Out For.  He has some great points to note before purchasing on price alone.

Kelly for the Centible Life shares her thoughts on the topic of Mommy Bloggers Salary and should  the young ladies post as much information as most personal finance bloggers do.  Hmmm I think I fall into the post the numbers camp, but that’s just a Debt Blogger’s opinion.

The Investor from Monvator write a super cool post titled Do you Hate your Job?.  Uh Yeah, sometimes…

Craig from Money Help For Christians writes Make Money Blogging | A Guide for Beginners on How to Make Money Online.  I guess I should take his advice and take my hobby of blogging to the next level.  Or I could just shoot more cool videos for you guys, like this one How a Debt Snowball Really Works.

The ever charming and popular Len Penzo shares his thoughts on living on $40,000 a year in his wildly virual post titled If You Can’t Live on $40,000 Per Year, It’s Your Own Fault.  Nuff said.

Mr. MD from The Green Panda Treehouse shares some awesome points on budgeting in, Are You Making These Budget Mistakes?

The Oblivious Investors tells us The Best Places to Retire.  I’m going with Spain, final answer.

Ryan from the Military Wallet gives us some Tips For Taking Classes While in the Military.

If you’ve made it this far in the post, remember to comment on the item I presented in Joe’s post above.  Good luck.

I’m going to say Dave Chappelle for the quiz. But you had me at the pic of Rick James to begin with. That alone made me laugh. Thanks for that! :)

I can’t help just blurting out “I’m Rick James, Bitch!!” everytime I see his pick or Chappelle’s pic…. It’s like Rick James tourettes! Answer is Dave Chappelle of course :).

The money maven’s certainly have some fine members. I have been meaning to watch the Freakonomics trailer, I never realised it was a book first.
