Also, if applicable, I will give a brief description of the stage of the Tour de France that took place the same day as the competition.
How to Vote
You can vote for the two articles (one from each intermediate sprint) you’d like to see proceed in the Tour by commenting in the comments section below and telling which are your favorites.
I’ve listed a keyword after each post title to make it easy to vote (as a made-up example, you can just comment: Sprint 1: Mutual; Sprint 2: 401k, etc.) Be sure to comment which one you like the best out of each set of two! Criteria for the best article is completely up to you, but you can use these factors as a guide: 1) post of your favorite blogger, 2) most interesting post, 3) most thought-provoking post, 4) most unique post, or 5) most actionable post.
Here are today’s competitions:
Intermediate Sprint # 3
- How To Get Rich In A Recession (Rich): The article is about strategies to undertake to build wealth in difficult times.
- Buy the Pricey House? Or the Moderate House? (House): My wife and I recently purchased a house. Instead of buying at the top of our “affordability,” we decided to buy a house that we could pay off in less than 5 years. Once paid off, we’ll be able to build severe wealth, and we’ll be in a position to help our community as well! I hope that this post will inspire others to take the same action so that we’ll soon live in a better place!
Intermediate Sprint # 4
- THE Top 10 Bad Financial Lists (Lists): I grow weary and tired of bloggers putting out Top 5, 10, and 20 lists of various financial things that would make our lives better. So, I have devised a most nefarious, ugly, and downright useless list of financial lists (there is the twist) that could ever be published and still be labeled as SFW (Suitable for Work). Careful reading this, you may find yourself suddenly wanting to write a similar list mocking other bloggers.
The Standing Blogger…or, Computer as Idiot Box (Standing): We’re told that spending upwards of six hours a day in a seated position (as in, say, blogging and doing any computer-based desk work) can shave years off our lives. Given that few of us are about to get offline, here’s a hack that may save your life.
American Tyler Farrar won the sprint for 1st place with all of the contenders for overall yellow jersey victory finishing safely in the main pack.
