controversies of 2007

WSA adsense code -->

I had all these great plans for an end of 2007 round-up. I’m afraid that life got in the way. Or at least I’d forgotten how hectic the Christmas period can be. As compensation, this last post of 2007 has a brief look at some of the more talked about posts of the year.

  • Dave Ramsey is bad at math @ five cent nickel , agree, disagree, say what you like this post from May is still the most talked about post at five cent nickel
  • why religion is an important part of personal finance @ get rich slowly,  J.D. went on holiday to Europe, and this guest post from personal finance blogger and committed Christian FMF caused a storm of controversy.
  • basic investing in a downmarket @ the simple dollar, Trent’s advice to get out of the market if it makes you nervous was perhaps not the best he’s ever given. In any case, it provoked a number of comments and response posts. Read for yourself and make your own mind up

Onwards and upwards to 2008

    1. Yeah, my “best of” didn’t really come together either. Oh well, there’s always another year. ;) Or a random “for no reason” or a “blogaversary.”

    2. I’ve never noticed until now, but I wonder why Trent doesn’t include trackbacks. I would be interested in seeing responses to his posts.

    3. The Get Rich Slowly comment thread was unbelievable.

    4. @guinness416:
      I think that when people don’t use trackbacks, it’s usually because they get too much spam that’s hard to split out from regular trackbacks. If they’re mixed together, it can also be harder to follow the conversation thread.
