If I had to take a rough guess, I’d say there are over 250 active personal finance bloggers. I’d define “active” as writing somewhere around 150 articles a year. Some quick math tells me that’s nearly 40,000 articles. Even if I wasn’t Lazy, reading 40,000 articles can really be a chore. How do you trim it down to a more manageable size? One way is to just do what you are doing now, ready this website. Oh wait, you wanted to read good personal finance posts. Well I can help with that too.
Money Smart Life and Green Panda’s Treehouse asked many personal finance bloggers to submit their best posts of 2008. The results were quite different. Green Panda’s 2008 Best Personal Finance compilation is nicely categorized so you can dig into the specific area you are interested in. Money Smart Life’s Best Money Post of the Year compilation isn’t categorized, but has a little information from the author why it’s noteworthy.
There’s some good nuggets of information hiding in there. Please feel free to share the “best of the best” that you come across in the comments.
