On Friday of last week, My Personal Finance Journey participated in and organized the 4th ever Yakezie Blog Swap. 

In this event, members and challengers of theYakezie Personal Finance Blog Network paired up and traded posts amongst themselves on the common topic of “our biggest financial pet peeve.”

My Favorite Swapped Post from the Event

After reading through all of the articles in this blog swap, my hands-down favorite is the one below! Very insightful about a crucial topic! Nice work Robert @ College Investor!

Robert from The College Investor wrote about how people making mistakes with their 401k accounts is a big “no-no” at Thousandaire.
