Finally, the Personal Finance Bloggers' Network

Contributed by mm | March 27, 2005 7:22 PM PST

When PFBlog was voted as the best personal finance blog about a month ago, I asked myself: what does it take to bring PFBlog to the next level?

On one hand, I can continue to explore some new personal finance topics and, at the same time, report my progress in my long journey. But on the other hand, my growing responsibilities at daily job substantially reduces the time I can devote to PFBlog, and more importantly, I noticed the continued success of PFBlog is severely handicapped by my limited scope as a comparatively well paid, no debt corporate finance professional in his late 20s. (You see no discussion of how to dig oneself up from a debt hole, not much about retirement planning, and absolutely nothing about estate planning.) That's the reason why, as you might noticed, PFBlog started to recruit outside bloggers in late February.

I'm so fortunate to find so many people sharing the vision and being interested in personal finance blogging. Now, after one month's of busy work, we are happy to announce that PFBlog Network, or Personal Finance Bloggers' Network, is launched at

PFBlog Network Contributors

Currently, PFBlog Network includes 12 channels written by people at different stages of personal finance life. Besides my original blog of My Personal Finance Journey, there are six other blogs that earned the status of gold channel. They are:

All Things Financial by JLP, who is a financial planner from Texas. He discusses a variety of personal finance topics and shares his journey to be a Certified Financial Planner.

Financial Freedom Trek by Sadi, a young lady from the Big Apple, who is willing to share her trek to become net worth positive.

Nathan's Financial Mindset, by, of course, Nathan. Nathan is also in the early part of his journey to retire early, and retire rich.

Consumerism Commentary by flexo. Flexo is a veteran personal finance blogger that hosts Consumerism Commentary. He is 29 years old and is versatile on many things.

Canadian Capitalist by Arbee, the blogger behind Canadian Capitalist. Arbee brings his engineering background (same as me) to play when discussing personal finance topics, and especially, investing, with a Canadian flavor.

Blueprint for Financial Prosperity by Jim, who is currently 24 (relatively young!) and host of Bargaineering, a money saving site.

Some more blogs will be announced soon but you can take a sneak peek today. Are you convinced that we are a truly diversified group now?

How To Get the Most from PFBlog Network

So, as a reader, how can you get the most from the dozens of new articles posted at PFBlog Network every week? Below are some tips:

- Subscribe to our RSS feed: the news feed at includes latest headlines from all gold channels in the network. Subscribe to this feed from your favorite news reader and you will never miss another article. (If you don't use news reader yet, I recommend the free web-based reader Bloglines.)

- Navigate in the Network: convenient navigation bar on the right hand side givs you links to the latest posts in the Network and to the gold channels. Don't forget to use it.

- Give feedback: As readers, you can actively contribute to a blog by giving your feedback through comments. Feel free to leave your comments; without writing a blog yourself, you can still share your insight. Questions are also welcome in the comments area. Also, if you have any suggestions on how we can make PFBlog a better place for you, feel free to send me a note.

How To Start Your Own Blog at PFBlog

If you missed our original recruitment cycle, the door is not closed. If you passionately love personal finance, and want to share your experience with PFBlog readers, you are more than welcome to join us. Please read our program summary, and send us a brief mail that includes your background and how/what you want to write. Upon acceptance, your blog can be set up in a few business days, if not overnight.

OK, so much for this (very) long post. Enjoy!
