So, I’ve been looking at a lot of financial planning/personal finance blogs and and websites, but it’s been hard to determine what is worthwhile. So, I encourage any input from people who come across my blog…help me sort out what’s useful and what isn’t!
I did come across one page (because I’m too lazy to remove myself from monster.com mailing lists, even though I’m really happy with my job!) There was a link entitled Six Tips to Put Your Financial House in Order. It’s a start, and I’ll definitely look more at other information from Suze Orman (like her yahoo site and her book-related site). I guess Yahoo Finance has a lot of information, as does CNN Money. I guess I’m trying to find out how to better save money for the short term, as well as the long term (i.e. for retirement), where best to invest, and a better plan of action (pay off student loans before getting an IRA account? And then, a Roth or Traditional IRA?).
I really look forward to any input people can provide, and I’ll be willing to dole out the information I’ve so far collected. Granted, I don’t know everything, but I’ve started talking with people, and I’ve read Suze Orman’s Young, Fabulous & Broke and am reading The Wealthy Barber.
Let’s see where this takes us.
