Personal Finance Links (Meeting Personal Finance Bloggers Edition)

Written by

Blogging is usually a solo act. I write articles without a lot of input of others. However, I have a lot of digital communication with bloggers via emails, forums, and Twitter. Many of them have become much better friends than I ever had in high school. The unusual thing is that I rarely get to meet them in person. I like to say that I scatter my friends around the United States.

In the last few months, I've had the good fortune to meet a lot of my personal finance comrades. In one night, Gobankingrates.com hosted a meet-up and I got to meet PFStock, The Bag Lady, Ask Mr. Credit Card, Upside of Money, and Nerd Wallet. Last night, my wife and I got to have dinner with Jeff Rose, the Illinois CFP of Good Financial Cents and The Digerati Life and their spouses. While we knew The Digerati Life, this was my first meeting with Jeff and his wife. I had no idea how much they do, in addition to raising a family. It made me feel extremely unproductive. When it comes out in a few years that they were part of a secret government experiment to find out what happens when people don't sleep, please remember you heard it here first.

In the meantime, here is some reading from last week:

  1. Hi there, Thanks so much for including my “When does an internship become a slave ship?” post on your list.

    I love Twitter. It’s especially valuable I think for people who essentially work alone. I really like the huge breath of it, hearing the thoughts of so many working in such a wide variety of fields all over the world. On my way right now to follow you also…

    Great list of links! We wouldn’t call you lazy at all ““ in fact, quite the opposite! You’ve not only met these people in real life, but now you’ve gone out and found quality blog posts so the rest of us don’t have to. Thanks and keep the personal finance tips coming!

    It was good to see you and your wife at the blogger meetup. It’s funny how sometimes you form an image of how a person might look like, and it can be really surprising when you finally do meet. Anyway, I hope to see you again at a future event.
