This weekend I discovered some great finance blogs. These blogs share four qualities necessary for a successful blog:
- Educational – At these blogs you can learn about financial goal setting, ways to save money, stock market information and more.
- Personal – These blogs put a personal spin on the topic that’s very appealing. One woman did a financial analysis to see if she could afford to be a stay at home mom. Another blogger tells about the excitement of paying off her credit cards. These blogs give us a look inside people’s lives.
- Entertaining – Ordinarily I find finance a boring topic, but I enjoy these blogs. It’s hard for me to put a finger on exactly why I find some blogs entertaining and others not so much. I like personal stories. I like good writing. I like inclusive atmospheres that encourage readers to offer comments. While everyone’s tastes differ, one thing is for sure. If a blog isn’t entertaining it won’t build a readership.
- Applicable – Finance is a topic that’s applicable to everyone’s life. We all want to save money, make more money and make better use of our money.
Without further preamble here are the blogs:
