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.
