What’s Going On in the Blogosphere: Episode 3

The personal finance blogosphere - the world of blogs - is vast

Each week I’m going to try to put together a list of 3-5 great blog posts I’ve read from other personal finance bloggers. These posts are a collection of things I find interesting and thought-provoking, and if you like the content I’m posting I’d encourage you to check out some of the posts in this list. There are many more posts I recommend throughout the week on Twitter – if you aren’t following me yet, please head over there and give me a Follow or follow me on Facebook.

Picky Pinchers: Is Your Money Management Woke or Weak?

Mrs. PP (embrace it) put together a short quiz to see how on-point your money management is. It’s not a perfect survey, but it’s a neat concept and one I may explore in the future! Picky Pinchers is also a great blog to follow if you like some random recipes and the like. If you don’t know how to make the best cold brew you’ll ever make, it’s worth a read.

Physician On FIRE: Pay Yourself First? No, Pay Yourself Last.

Fellow Minnesotan and, if you couldn’t guess, physician, aptly going by Physician on FIRE has a guest post from another blogger known as Wealthy Doc. In this post, WD essentially turns the concept of ‘pay yourself first’ on its head. It’s pretty smart, and actually a topic I’ll somewhat talk about with Monday’s post. Especially for high earners, this is a great read.

Budget On a Stick: Money Map

Minnesota represent! Another MN blogger makes the list this week.

The concept of a “money map” that Budget On a Stick lays out is pretty simple – basically “a treasure map but with multiple X’s and the treasure chests keep getting bigger.” If you’re a flow chart nerd like me, this in an exercise you have to go through! I am planning on putting one together after Kristin and I finally get around to merging all of our finances.

    1. It is one of those things that sounds silly when you think about it at first, but actually turns out to make a LOT of sense after you read the whole article. In fact, it’s caused me and Kristin to contemplate redoing our financial ‘flow’ (check out the money map article, too! hah) to better support the idea.

  1. I think there needs to be a collating of all of the blogs of Minnesotans and former Minnesotans (I am a former one, but want to move back soon). I mean we do have all of the answers when it comes to PF ;).

    1. There’s a thread on Rockstar Finance forums for a group, a lot of us from MN are in there – called Northstar if you want to check it out! And yeah we’re a pretty intelligent group I think! haha
