Bank Deal: Earn 1.00% APY on an FDIC-insured savings account at Barclays.

Here’s a quick look at a few things from the MoneyBlogNetwork (and beyond) that caught my eye over the past week…

MightyBargainHunter asks if one should pay down their mortgage or sock extra savings away in their ING Direct account (click for a $25 ING Direct referral link if you need one).

pfBlueprint looks at Roth IRAs as emergency funds. This sort of thinking is along the lines of earlier writings on withdrawing your regular contributions from your Roth IRA.

FreeMoneyFinance looks at how to save for a house.

ConsumerismCommentary looks back at the purchase of a Panasonic digital camcorder and laments that he hasn’t used it that much. Methinks he should have some kids if he wants to give his camcorder a workout!

AllFinancialMatters get a bit mathematical, and walks us through the difference between arithmetic and geometric means (an he also tells us why we should care).

Despite having no kids of his own, Cap is talking about teaching kids how to save money.

Nick got bored and paid off his Mini Cooper.

That’s it for this week. Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check out the MoneyBlogNetwork Forums for great tips on just about anything related to blogging — and if your topic isn’t covered, create an account and post a question!
