Personal finance blogging is one of the best tools available for learning about how to handle your own money because of the personal touch found so unique to a blog.
Personal finance is just that – personal. It’s all about you and your money; about what to do with it when it comes in, and how to keep too much of it from going out. The better you handle your personal finances, the more freedom you have. And, of course, the opposite is true – the worse you are with your money, the harder it will be to do and have the things you want most in life.
If a great deal of our joy and freedom in life is tied to how we handle our money, then we need to handle it intelligently. We need to control our money, not have our money control us.
And how do we handle our money intelligently? Educate yourself using personal finance blogging.
Blogging has been one of the world’s greatest inventions in the last few years. A blog provides literally anyone with the ability to express their own ideas, opinions, experiences, and viewpoints on various topics that are unique to them. There are many personal finance blogs out there that specialize in educating others on a more personal level. And what better to help educate people with their money by reading others’ experiences about handling money.
Personal finance blogging has improved my ability to save and spend money more than any book or class I’ve ever taken. Why? Because you’re getting more than just abstract principles of money presented to you; you’re getting real people’s personal experience on handling their own money problems. And the best part about it comes from the comments and feedback that others leave on a principle taught that sheds more wisdom on a given topic. I have sat for hours reading and learning through simply reading personal finance blogs.
Where do you find them? They’re everywhere! Just do a search on Google and find ONE; from there, you can find a number of other pf blogs through external links on the blog you’re reading. There is a tight knit community of personal finance bloggers out there that will keep you in the personal finance blogging network.
If the way we handle our money is directly connected with life’s freedoms, why not educate ourselves so that we can take control of our money.
Find a personal finance blog and read it consistently. Your pocket book will thank you later.
