I thought in my travels around the web that I would direct you to some great sites that I have seen and are really worth a look. They are not necessarily all finance blogs and can often be about other aspects of our busy lives. Sometimes we can get too hooked on the technical parts of our lives without looking after our minds or our bodies. Some of these sites deal with issues that are related to money but are often rarely talked about.
Of course most people in Australia would be aware of Scott Pape the Barefoot Investor. His irreverent version of financial advice really hit a cord with the younger generation and he has been a great boost to the cause of furthering financial education. His books and blog are well written in a “man next door” style that has made him a household name in Melbourne. He has a no nonsense approach to financial advice and I would always recommend his website.
You may think this is an unusual site to include as I am not a religious person but the information on this website is second to none. The site has been going for many years now and include information on personal, financial, work and many other issues. It’s very well written and researched and you’ll be able to find something that interests you.
Moneysmart is an ASIC website funded by the Australian Government. It is an initiative to help people with financial literacy skills and includes just about every aspect of finance and saving. It is an excellent quality site, is well structured and you can spend quite some time browsing. On the right hand side of the site it has Quick links to take you to other sections of the website for Calculators,Publications, Report a scam, or for specific info – Under 25’s, Over 55’s etc.
Neville is a financial planner who has a related website if you want to search for it but I was more interested in his personal blog as the stories are of a personal advice nature. He seems to be a financial planner with a very caring attitude and quite a bit of wisdom to share.
I will make a habit of this and regularly choose some interesting websites for you to look at – thanks Rob
