Calling all under-30 bloggers!

Join the Under 30 Honor Roll!

Since people under 30 tend to have different goals and challenges than more established people, we're writing about personal finance from a different position. I'd like to create a network of bloggers under 30 to encourage one another and create more of a group identity. What I've got in mind currently is just for Honor Roll members to place links to the other member blogs near where you normally place your blogroll. In the future I think we could develop more group projects, but it's a start!

If you would like to join the Honor Roll, please drop me an email at kira (dot) botkin (at) gmail (dot) com. I'll keep a running list of the members. Also, if you have any ideas as to what this group could aim for in the future, let me know! Thanks!

As someone who just turned 30 in March.. what happens when members hit 30? Will they be booted from the honor roll? Can I join as an "alumnus?"

The idea of the Under 30 Honor Roll is to get people together who are writing about similar things, mostly about how they got established and are securing themselves. So it's rather more about what you like to write about and whether that is similar to what most under 30 year olds would be interested in. I think once we have a good idea of who is going to be on the Honor Roll, we can figure it out.. I don't want it to be just me calling the shots right now, I do want a lot of input from the other bloggers.

I wanna join! I won't be 30 for another six months. Gotta hang out with an under-30 crowd while I still can.

Breast Cancer under 30
Common Breast Cancer Myths

The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

Third is that it is solely hereditary

The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
