Am I a personal finance blogger? Is this even a personal finance blog? I keep asking myself that question.
Then, a few weeks ago, I found the following post by The Wealth Gospel: You Might Be a Personal Finance Blogger If… and it made me consider the question again.
I have spent a lot of time sifting through the pf blogosphere. Right now I have over 300 articles unread in my feedly. Sigh. So many blogs, so little time!
Based on my unscientific research, I have found that pf blogs cover a very broad spectrum of topics. I tried to summarize the main categories below. Most blogs tend to stick to one general theme. Some share personal stories, goals and successes and some provide information, how to articles, lists, ideas, lessons, interviews, reviews………..
The Personal Finance Blog Spectrum
Did I capture everything?
I knew very little about the PF blog community when I started blogging.
My husband noticed my lengthy sessions on the laptop and asked me what I was doing. The honest answer would have been, “I have NO idea!” but I told him I had started blogging. He just shrugged his shoulders and turned his attention to the television.
A few months later he came in the room and asked if I had showered, eaten or slept because there I was, glued to the laptop for hours on end. “I am blogging.” He has threatened a blogging intervention. So, to return to the theme of this post…
Am I a personal finance blogger?
I don’t seem to fit into a nice neat category. My goal with each post is to share a personal story or why I am thinking about a particular topic, share some useful information, maybe a laugh and leave you thinking or questioning what it is you believe about money. That’s my goal anyway.
I didn’t know what I was getting into when I started blogging but I have discovered a community. A community of helpful, constructive and resourceful people. What a nice surprise.
Oh, and I want to play too!
P.S. This PF blogger is co-hosting Financially Savvy Saturdays this weekend. Please come back and share your post with us.
