One of my goals as a personal finance blogger is to increase the general knowledge level and interest that women have about finance. Many women take on the budgeting role in the household while the man takes on the big investing decisions. This is a concept that is somewhat foreign to me, as are many gender roles, being that I wasn’t raised in a house with a man. There were no men to make the decisions.
My interest in money and finance is innate. I have ALWAYS been interested in it. What I struggle with is how to connect with other women because I know I am not the norm.
One way I start is to take a look at the women bloggers that connect with me. There are not too many that I connect with unfortunately but these three I really like ALOT. Light on the coupon cutting advice and recycling your child’s lunchbags and heavier on the nitty gritty like taxes, investment strategies, etc.
Kay Bell at Don’t Mess With Taxes – THE spot for all things taxes. This woman knows her sheeeeeeeeeettt.
Nina Smith at Queercents – It’s funny, this site is targeted toward the LGBT community and I’m straight and read it religously. Nina is insightful and light on fluff
Single Ma’s Fabulous Financials – Not a heavy site but …. a 30 something single mom who is insightful and I think I would be friends with if I knew her in “real life”.
