I'd like to submit an article but I'm over 30. 34 to be exact. I would like to write an article on what I feel may be an inherent weakness on your under-30 blog community.

I think that you can learn alot from people over 30 because they have just gone through the same things you are now experiencing.

I think it's great that all of you are very interested in your personal finances. I was really into investing right when I got out of college.

I was actually featured in an article on Money magazine because I had too many mutual funds. (I need to find that article and scan it)

I was 28 when I bought my first house, 25 when I bought my first car. I've been through everything that you guys are all posting about.

I think that limiting your blog community to under-30 people may be a mistake because you may miss the knowledge and experience from people who have been through the exact situations that you are facing.

People over 30 are welcome to contribute to the Festival... You can contribute anytime you like, using the link in this article - it will go to whatever is the upcoming edition.

The personal finance blog world is full of the experience of people over 30, so there is no shortage - it's we young'uns which are rare.

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.
