The Sunday Best (8/27/2017)
The Sunday Best is a collection of articles I’ve curated for your reading pleasure.
Presenting, this week’s Sunday Best:
FI is a great goal, regardless of your interest in early retirement. The White Coat Investor explores 8 Things To Do With Financial Independence Besides Retire Early.
The Frugal Humanist seems awfully happy since retiring early a year ago, as detailed in these two posts on the topic.
The Done by Forty duo took a trip of a lifetime and took lots of pictures. I’ve been to Iceland three times now, but have yet to spend more than a few days. I’d love to take a week or more like they did, traveling Iceland’s Ring Road in a KuKu.
Taking a trip like that would be a bit more complicated with our kids, just like our financial independence journey was. The Chief Mom Officer discusses the topic in Moms on FIRE — Thoughts On Seeking Financial Independence With Kids in Tow.
Miss Bonnie MD is offering a much-needed female perspective on personal finance, launching an interview series with women in medicine.

Nominate Your Favorite Blogs & Podcasts for the Plutus Awards
I’ve shared hundreds of posts with you from bloggers in all walks of life. I hope you’ve found at least a few that you really enjoy, and this is your opportunity to recognize them.
Winners will be announced at the awards banquet a couple months from now at FinCon17 in Dallas, the annual gathering of personal finance bloggers and more.
Having a relatively new site (founded in January of 2016 — not saying that so you’ll know this site can be nominated as a New Personal Finance Blog — that would be so lame and self serving ;), I have not been to FinCon before, but I hear it’s a barrel of fun. My wife and I will be making our first FinCon trip this October and I look forward to meeting a lot of my blogging friends in person for the first time.
I’ll be filling out my ballot, and I hope you will take a few minutes to do the same — make your nominations here. Don’t worry about filling it out completely. I don’t think I know enough sites to nominate multiple blogs in all the categories, and I read a lot of blog posts!
And you can always visit the Sunday Best archives for additional inspiration. If you still can’t come up with any ideas, I suppose you could just nominate the site you’re reading right now, whichever site that may be. But I’m not going to ask you to nominate Physician on FIRE. I would never do such a thing.
Have a great week!
