My time in the personal finance community grows, my bookmark list grows to greater and greater lengths, my personal preferences evolve. I’ve gone from devouring everything I can find and reading every tip and suggestion to searching for the personal connection in finances. In congruence with my preference to talk money with peers, I want to see and read those same conversations in other sites as well.
Thanks to my time in the personal finance community and the many fiscal achievement in the past few years, I feel secure with my finances and when making financial decisions. The security leads to wanting to focus on the connection with other personal finance writers on a personal level. I want to see their personality shine through their writing and hear about the challenges they faced due to personality characteristics while reading about their financial successes and strategies.
I’m moving away from reading sites that mostly focus on tips, strategies, and suggestions because I can no longer see the person in the personal finance. I’m also going to be sure that my writing keeps the personal in personal finances.
