A Week's Worth At PFBlog Network #10

Contributed by mm | June 6, 2005 8:41 AM PST

If measured in weeks, PFBlog Network is a teen now! In week 10, 62 articles were published, bringing total number of articles in the network to 1,344 (including 759 from my original blog).

With that many new posts surfacing every week, it is not easy to compile this weekly summary. I'm not complaining ... it is actually a fun job to read each piece and summarize the best of the week. Every week, I'm amazed by the new information and great ideas I learned from the network. If you don't have time to keep track of new articles every day, at least pick up a few fun readings from our weekly recap. Enjoy!

Prospect is thinking hard (and creatively) about owning a home. He fully explored the option of partnership in homeownership (part 1, part 2, part 3).
