Favorite Posts, Mentions, and Top Comments Week of 27October2013

More of the same this week, so nothing new to report!  Work is coming out of our ears.  I’m probably going to be working quite a lot through the first week in December, and who knows when Kyle will let off the gas on writing and editing his dissertation.

Liquid from Freedom Thirty Five weighed in on the topics he prefers on Important But Uninteresting PF Topics, countering my preference to not talk about debt, insurance, or investing: “Every PF blog should have a different style that’s unique to the author’s situation. I don’t read a lot of posts about married finances or grad finances because I’m not married and have never been to grad school, but somebody has to still write about those topics because there are plenty of other readers who DO find them interesting :) And your particular journey through personal finance makes you the most qualified to write those kinds of articles ;) I like to blog about investing and debt because that’s been MY experience through the PF journey so far.”
