Weekend Blog Love #1

Share the LoveHappy Sunday folks!

Today I’m going to start something new around here, with a series of Weekend Blog Love. Since starting this blog last October I’ve never really showcased any of my favourite bloggers out there, but there are many. And I mean MANY! I think I spend more time reading other blogs than anything else around here. But that means I stumble upon quite a lot of great content that I would like to share with you, my readers. 

If you like what you see around This Life On Purpose, you are definitely going to want to check out these posts from this week:

The Micawber Principle Blog wrote a great post on whether or not we really want financial security or the appearance of wealth. The saying “Big Hat, No Cattle” really resonated with me since it’s a good reminder that those who maintain an outward appearance of wealth generally aren’t the truly wealthy ones.

Money Rebound posted a short article detailing how taking time off can actually increase your earnings. I’ve had quite a bit of feedback on my upcoming South American adventure with certain people concerned about the impact it will have on my future earnings. This post helps me see that travel is actually a benefit to my career.

Kali from Common Sense Millennial  wrote a post on our generation’s “dream” jobs and why they are overrated. This is an interesting wake-up call for many of us at an early stage of our careers, and Kali makes a great point that career success is not defined by whether or not you are living out your dream job.

The ladies over at Golden Girl Finance posted a great article about why travelling after graduation can actually help you land that coveted position with What Your Passport Can Teach Your Resume. I am a huge supporter of travel after graduation and this article highlights some of the biggest benefits that employers will (hopefully!) recognize in a globe-trotting candidate.

Lastly, Broke Millennial wrote a post on the financial ramifications of the quarter-life crisis. This was an interesting read for me as I just turned 25 last month, and I found myself trying to figure out which type of quarter-life crisis I am more likely to go through. The answer: a wanderlust. No surprise there!

Happy reading and have a great week!

    Thanks so much for the blog love! Hope you had an awesome weekend.

    P.S. I’m mostly wanderlust too. :)

      Wanderlust doesn’t seem like so bad a quarter-life crisis :)

    Glad you enjoyed my “Big Hat, No Cattle” post. Thanks for helping to get the word out on the important difference between having things and creating wealth. Keep up the good work.
