Just one link for you today. I participated in this week’s Festival of Frugality. And it was wonderful.
You may have noticed that I haven’t really discussed the election on this blog. Honestly, the main reason is because I am surrounded by political talk all day every day and I would like to keep some parts of my life politics free. Additionally, I believe that people need to truly take advantage of their right to vote and make sure that they choose the candidate they prefer, not the candidate someone else wants you to vote for. I’ve not seen a lot of that on finance blogs, thankfully, and I do appreciate those who have posted comparisons of the two candidates’ tax plans.
The reason I bring this up is because I received a notification from BlogHer that the ads that they are running will include political ads. I had the chance to opt out all together or choose which candidates’ ads I didn’t want displayed, but I decided not to do anything. Why? For the reasons mentioned above. I think you should get as much information as possible, and that includes reading what the candidates have to say themselves. Of course, you should probably always take that information with a grain of salt.
Basically, that is a long way of saying “You will see ads. As always, I do not necessarily endorse the products or people displayed in those ads.”
