How Do You Read?

"To read a writer is for me not merely to get an idea of what he says, but to go off with him and travel in his company?" -Andre Gide

We are always curious about our fellow bloggers; who are they reading, what are they listening to, and what are their main reasoning for writing a personal finance blog. For us as well as others, the answers to these questions have been easier to obtain thanks to a few different sources.

One of the main sources that we read on a daily basis is We absolutely love! The person(s) at this site has allowed many different personal finance blogs to come together and be one, simple resource for readers to view the personal finance blog world in one sitting. We would like to just say a quick thank you for their hard work that is taken for granted often.

The second resource that we absolutely love is Google Reader. In essence, this resource allows one to create a daily reader that captures those blogs you love to read! We use this resource to keep up with our favorite bloggers, capture new bloggers we want to follow on a more closely basis, and be able to follow those that our not apart of! To create a account with Google Reader is free, and is definitely worth it's weight in virtual gold!


  • I'm a huge fan of too. I check it several times a day to keep up on the headlines of other pfblogs. As far as a RSS reader goes, I use bloglines on which I follow 42 blogs more closely.

  • We have about 18 different blogs that we read on a daily basis. 42 must really keep you busy! Well, if we are one of those 42, thanks for reading and we definitely have enjoyed reading 'Our Money Matters!'

  • I think its treat you have set goals. I am just worried you are trying to do too many differnet things at once. You must have heard of Dave Ramsey's Baby Steps. He would say to be current on all you bills and debts, have $1000 baby emergency fund, stop funding 401Ks and Roths and ATTACK the debt. The quicker you don't have debt, the quicker you can get to fully funding your emergency fund then save for retirement. Just a thought. New to the blog but I will keep reading to see how you are doing.

  • Thanks for the comments debt monster. We are definitely fans of Dave Ramsey, and he is one of the reasons we decided to change our financial future. However, we have tried many 'scenarios' to determine the best way to proceed, and found that our current plan is what works best for us. We look to do a post discussing this issue in the near future.
