Over the past week, I’ve been working on transitioning to a new provider for e-mail subscriptions. If you’ve already subscribed, you don’t have to do anything other than (possibly) ignore an administrative e-mail telling you about the transition.
If you’re not already an e-mail subscriber, I invite you to become one. Once you do so, you’ll get the full text of everything I write delivered to your inbox in a single, daily (at most) e-mail. It’s free, I won’t spam you or share your address with anyone, and you can unsubscribe at anytime.
Speaking of subscriptions…
You may have heard that Google will be shutting down their “Reader” service on July 1. For any RSS subscribers that use Google Reader to follow my writings, the invitation to subscribe via e-mail goes double. I’d hate to lose you! 🙂
And now… Here are some articles that caught my eye this past week:
- Can Speaking English Affect Your Personal Finances? – Some interesting correlations between native languages and wealth.
- Using Historical Returns to Predict the Future – Past performance is no guarantee of future returns, but the information can still be instructive.
- Ten Ways to Prepare for the Unknown – If you’re a doom and gloomer (and maybe even if you’re not) this is a good read.
- What Does Money Buy? – A great perspective. More than anything, money buys convenience. And convenience is often well worth paying for.
- Letting Brands Use You for Advertising – If you use Facebook and you haven’t locked down your privacy settings, there’s a good chance that your likes are being used in advertisements.
That’s it. Hope you’re having a great week.
