Each week, I scavenge the interwebs in search of awesome content. My weekly reading roundup is a compilation of my favorite content from the previous week. This content inspires me to continue the grind and move forward both in my personal finance goals and with this blog. Additionally, I hope these posts provide perspective to all my readers that financial freedom is possible. 

Here’s a round-up of my favorite posts:

Tub Of Cash

Recent Post: When I Buy Stocks, Where Does My Money Go?

So for example, if you buy $1000 of apple stock, the $1000 goes to Apple. Well, this isn’t typically the case.Click To Tweet

Tim Kim does a great job breaking down what happens when you buy stocks of a company. Rather than making this difficult with endless calculations, Tim simply shares the process through an analogy that likens buying IPO stocks to purchasing a new car and buying existing stocks to that of purchasing a used car.

Making Sense Of Cents

Recent Post: How I Made $121,861.28 In June While Sailing to Beautiful Islands

June was a great month for the business, especially since I was on vacation for many days of the month!Click To Tweet

In yet another impressive income report, Michelle breaks down how she made OVER $100,000 in ONE MONTH, while on vacation. One thing I love about Michelle’s income reports is that she breaks down exactly how she made money, provides advice for helping other bloggers and gives sneak peeks into what’s to come on Making Sense of Cents!

Frugal Asian Finance

Recent post: List of Asian Personal Finance Bloggers – Part 2

This post “includes so many amazing Asian personal finance (PF) bloggers [that Ms. FAF has] encountered over the past two years.” Not only does this list include so many of my favorite bloggers, it’s a testament to every person having their own story, their own path and demonstrates that with hard work, determination and persistence, anything is possible.

Bobby reveals methods he recommends for staying on the right financial path. My favorite suggestion, and something I’ve focused on recently, is making sure you surround yourself with the right people who understand and support your financial goals. By removing the negative influences, you’re setting yourself up for success!

Finding Wealthy

Recent Post: How Are Dividends Taxed If You Own a REIT?

I hope to explain why REIT dividends are taxed at higher tax rates and why that can be a good thing or a bad thing..Click To Tweet

I’ve only recently stumbled upon Finding Wealthy and have really enjoyed reading through the site. This post 1) outlines the tax implications of REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) dividends in different income situations, and 2) brings awareness to the power of REIT’s for people who want to invest in Real Estate but don’t have enough money to purchase a property. Also, check out this article on Dividend Income Tax Advantages in general & this article about 5 tricks management uses to dupe investors.

Just Another Dollar

Ryan outlines the AWESOME month of June and the financial implications of that success. Despite some setbacks, they were committed to this goal made tremendous progress. I love these posts by Ryan because he gives updates on accomplishments and challenges he’s established.

    I really liked Mr. Mustard Seed Money’s post about his mid-year goals (published today 7/14). It still surprises me that we’re half way through the year, and Mr. MSM has achieved some great progress with his goals! 🙂
