Best Finance Blog for People Ready to Save or Invest

Marc Hedlund is the co-founder and Chief Product Officer of the popular Web 2.0 personal finance site Wesabe. He wrote the three personal finance writers you should read in 2008 on the Wesabe blog. My blog was selected as the Best Finance Blog for People Ready to Save or Invest. Here’s what Marc had to say:

“Probably the least well-known of the personal finance blogs I admire, The Finance Buff deserves to be a lot better-known. I found myself linking to one of TFB’s posts every week for more than a month recently and thought I should spread the linklove around, but why? The posts are great, clear, and more advanced than most finance bloggers. … … What I like best about TFB posts is that they teach a great way of thinking about building your savings and investments — not just a quick trick but a philosophy to understanding your options and costs. If you have money to save or invest and don’t know where to start, this is a great guide.”

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Marc. That’s great to start off my new year. I will do my best not to let Wesabeans down in 2008.

    I just won buzzword bingo with that link, tfb.

    Talk about a bunch of self important gibberish.

    I still don’t get it. Is this site web 2.0?

    tfb, Congratulations. I’ve read your strategy about indexing and no gold, no stocks. Do you really think you can weather 2008 with this kind of approach? Do you realize that S&P is 19% finance and the subprome mess is far from over? Also, your international allocation, is it enough? Realzie you do not want to speculate on sectors and others, but are you sure this is still valid for 2008 and going forward? The economy outlook is quickly changing

    Thank you for your concern. I’ve got my basis covered OK. I won’t mind a stock market crash. In fact I’m rooting for it. A 40% – 50% crash will be ideal although I don’t think we will get there.
