Dollar Matters: FINCON11 Recovery Edition

This past weekend I headed to Chicago for the Financial Blogger Conference. It was, hands down, the best conference I have ever been to. I go to Blogworld regularly, but this was much better. Mainly because I felt like I was already friends with everyone. The PF community is awesome, and I’m already geared up for FINCON12. Big, big thanks to Phil at PT Money for organizing the conference and making all this happen.

Of course, I’m still recovering from staying up until 2 a.m. and 4 a.m., even days later. But it was totally worth it. And, for those who missed out on coming, you can read about it. While it’s impossible to list everyone that was there, here are some conference recaps and roundups from some of the folks I hung out in Chi-town. Hope to see you at the conference next year!
