Top 5 Reasons Personal Fiance Blogs Are Better Than The Media by Canadian Dream
Most newspapers and magazines are unfortunately written to a grade 6 to grade 8 reading level, meaning that your supposed to avoid big words and break down somewhat complicated ideas into tiny little pieces so your children can understand them. Blogs are not chained to this level and can tackle more complicated issues and provide a deeper analysis of the issues.
One limit of being very personal with a blog is that sometimes it seems there arenâ€™t a lot exciting things to write about. In order to come up with fresh ideas when the personal part runs low, I force myself to read more books and articles on finance to gain insights on what other people are thinking on the same topic and how they are doing.
Practice what you preach. If you are going to post about personal finance, saving, and investing how can you not take your own advice. Blogging keeps personal finance concepts fresh in your head, making it much easier to follow through and meet your long term goals.

Itâ€™s a proven Warrenâ€™s theory that the price of a stock will ultimately reflects itsâ€™ real value.

Commodities are a way to diversify your portfolio and can also act as a hedge as they tend to bear a low to negative correlation to stocks and bonds.

But if you spend less than you earn, you’ll be laying down a firm foundation for all your other financial efforts. That’s why spending less than you earn is my best piece of financial advice.

Get used to drinking water and youâ€™ll likely eat less, cutting out those expensive snacks. Get used to drinking water and improve your health, which means less in health care costs down the road that will be difficult to quantify. As a corollary, when you go out to eat, ask for water instead of your beverage of choice. This is a directly quantifiable savings because do you really want a $2 soda?
