Day 146 - Best Personal Finance Sites??
nuchylee / FreeDigitalPhotos.net  
It bothers me that on many news websites I have to go through the business section to find anything about personal finance.  It shouldn't bother me but it does.  Although personal finance relates to handling money and managing family finances, the mentality is completely different when compared to business.  Or is it?  A publicly traded company has an obligation to maximize profits for its shareholders.  A family, in theory, could also be thought of as maximizing profits (savings, retirement, etc.) for the family.  But the approach to doing so (IMHO) is completely different than a corporation increasing sales of widgets in order to make more money.

So back to my original groan - why do I have to click on the business section of many websites - CNN, MSNBC, NY Times, - before I find anything geared towards personal finance?  And generally it's a few articles that stick around for weeks lacking updated content.  Do you have any ideas for better places to search for articles, advice, anything more focused on people working on improving their financial situation?  A site for the average Joe or Jane who doesn't necessarily know what dollar cost averaging means.

Post your comments here - I could use some advice.

Stay tuned,
Sarah
