Weekend Links – I’m Nominated For an Award Edition

Written by

Late last night, I found out that I had been nominated for a blogging award. If I were to pick an award to be nominated for, I would have definitely picked Performancing's award for Best Business/Money Blog. Fortunately, that's just the award I have been nominated for. Would you take 20 seconds out of your day and vote for the winner? While I would appreciate it greatly if you voted for Lazy Man and Money, there are some other great blogs that you should consider as well.

I write a weekly article for the Prosper Blog. If you like my writing, you can read my article, Are You Diversified there. The Prosper blog is nominated for best use of a corporate blog and I would appreciate you voting for them (and a little indirectly for me) as well.

Generation X Finance writes a tremendous article about reducing the impact of rising oil prices on your bank account. This is a concern of my wife's, so I'll forward this article onto her.

Money Smart Life has an article you must read if you had any curiosity about reporting income tax on Ebay earnings.

I've often said that I love reading The Sun's Financial Diary because he keeps up with new ETFs. This is no exception as he writes about new Vanguard Mega ETFs

The Digerati Life breaks down the true costs of relocating. We relocated from 3000 miles paid for by the US military. In a couple of years, we might go back to Boston.

Free Money Finance has an article about how to lose $10,000 in $30 chunks. I may need to forward this one on to my wife as well.

Jim is looking at Verizon FiOS Deals. My brother has FiOS, but it's a big deal installing it in new rooms. At&T's U-verse is entering my area now. The competition is starting to step up in the subscription TV wars.

Mighty Bargain Hunter is trying to figure out how much time is worth. It seems easy, but it can be tough to figure out.

No Credit Needed has found that you can have dividends reinvested without commissions. I had no idea this is possible. I need to look into this very, very soon.

Five Cent Nickel is setting goals for 2008

I was included in the Festival of Frugality run at Moolanomy this past week.

  6. WealthBoy says:

    Congrats on the nomination Lazy!!! You deserve it and deserve the award too!

  7. Wow, that is some tough competition right there. Good luck and congratulations!

  8. Oh and as for the dividend issue, it’s called a DRIP (Dividend reinvestment program), and they are especially fantastic within a tax-sheltered account like a Roth IRA since you can just keep building up a position in that security without paying any taxes on it.

  9. Lazy Man says:

    I’m very familiar with DRIPs, but I thought that you usually deal directly with the company that owns the stock and wouldn’t be available for an ETF.

  10. I don’t know how other places do it, but with Scottrade whenever I buy a mutual fund they always ask me what I want to do with the dividends and I always reinvest them.

    As for ETFs, that I wouldn’t know. Who do you use?

  11. Lazy Man says:

    I use Ameritrade now, but I might be moving some old 401ks that have been kicking around too long to Zecco. Without commissions, there really isn’t a problem with reinvesting.
