Contributed by mm | August 8, 2005 2:12 PM PST

If you just start to manage your personal finance, PFBlog is your great resource. During the weekend, our community is analyzing a young reader's financial plan and throwing out tons of suggestions. Feel the warmth at our post of the week, "Can you Help Jay?"

• Monthly tallying time again? MM had a great one.
• 1stMill figured out that his portfolio underperformed, with some valid reasons.


Personal Finance News and Resources

• Everyone at PFBlog Network is talking about 401(k). And MM's trying to make sense of the addition of lifecycle funds to his company's 401(k) program.

• Flexo received a $75 surprise from New Jersey's 2004 FAIR Tenant Rebate Program.
• Is it time to quit your job? Examine these signs and follow your heart.
• What's the maximum social security benefits? Read 1stMill's study.
State sales tax holidays can save you some money! (And why tax holiday may not be a good public policy.)

This is a great website. I've thoroughly enjoyed it since finding it at Kiplinger's a few months ago. Congrats!

I like how you recently opened up the Jay email for feedback. I'd love for you to do that more often. For example, maybe you could solicit open reviews on online investment advisors (like Morningstar's empower), saving for college, personal finance reviews (I'm going to submit some comments on your Microsoft Money review), etc. In general, you have created a great community here. I think it's great that you're starting to leverage the readers more.
