Filed under: links — plonkee @ 10:53 pm

Now that you’ve met the m-network, and the beginning of my blogroll, it’s time to meet some more.

consumerism commentary

New and improved with two editors, Flexo and Sasha, consumerism commentary has plenty to read on investing, real estate as well as information for the consumer. Flexo also runs the supremely important carnival of personal finance and an excellent personal finance blogs aggregator. My favourite posts include:

This week I liked:

english major money

One of the youngest personal finance bloggers is this English major living in New York. Follow her quest to enhance her freedom fund, whilst enjoying all the benefits of life in the big smoke. My favourite posts include:

From the last week:

  • getting antsy for a raise – I’m also hoping to get promoted (in April), although I’m not sure how close I actually am

fire finance

Fire stands for ‘financially independent retire early’ something that you’ll probably agree is not to be sniffed at. The mission of fire finance is to retire early, and along with chronicling their progress, they are giving us some useful advice. My favourite posts include:

This week I liked:

five cent nickel

Nickel is a prolific blogger, as well as his excellent personal finance blog he is also the author of sports injury info, grill maestro (I think)* and, together with his wife, raising four boys. Some of my favourite posts include:

This week I enjoyed:

frank, the financially savvy atheist

Equal measures atheist discussion and personal finance, frank talks about a lot about investing, and has an entire category called ‘fun with math‘. Just goes to show that it takes all sorts. My favourite posts include:

  • that eccentric billionaire – a billionaire walks up to you and offers you a billion dollars to complete one task. The catch, you have a 90% chance of living and a 10% chance of dying. Do you accept?
  • where is the S&P 500 headed at year end? – all about Monte Carlo simulations, in August there was 65% chance it would be up at year end


free money finance

From Michigan with an excellent Sunday series on the bible and money, FMF is a big fan of being debt-free. He is himself currently without any financial liabilities – no car loan, no mortgage and no consumer debt. He also donates the profit from his blog to charity – an all round good egg. My favourite posts include:

From the past seven days:
