In the coming days? weeks? months? I’ll be tweaking the layout of Financial Ramblings as I upgrade the underlying theme. The exact timing depends on my availability and what’s happening in the real world.
I’m not planning any wholesale changes in terms of the visual appearance, though I might fine-tune some things here or there. Most of the changes will be happening in the dark underbelly of the site.
In fact, I’m hoping that this process will be largely invisible to you, but… If you see any weirdness, that’s probably me making mistakes in the background. 😉
And now… Here are some articles that caught my eye this past week:
- Which Asset Allocation is Right for You? — There’s no perfect answer, but there are some good models out there to get you in the ballpark.
- Why Tracking Your Net Worth is Overrated — We do track our net worth, but I agree. The goal is freedom, not a certain dollar amount.
- ACA Cost-Sharing Reductions — More Obamacare insights from Mike.
- Increasing Future Retirement Income — This is a rather compelling argument in favor of delaying your Social Security benefits vs. claiming them right away.
- Periodic Table of Investments — This is a pretty cool graphic. It’s probably not all that useful, but it’s definitely interesting to look at.
- Warren Buffett’s $50 Billion Decision — How the Oracle got his start.
- Why Do You Feel Worse Off Financially? — I don’t, but (apparently) many do.
- The Economics of Buying a House — Economics aside, building a house sucks. It’s a process, not an event. And it doesn’t end when you get the keys.
Finally, I recently wrote an article for Jim Wang’s Microblogger describing the diagnosis of (and solution to) a problem that I was having with Google. Boring if you don’t run a website, BUT… There’s also a hint about my background in the intro.
That’s it. I hope you’ve been having a great weekend!
