A common question I get asked is where I read up on all this material on personal finance and how I am able to still have the brain power to breakdown the jargon into sentences that people can understand. I am here to tell you that it was rather easy with the guidance and assistance of many of these wonderful blogs in the personal finance community on the web. The time dedicated for each individual blog has had a ripple effect over the years. Thanks to the efforts of every contributor in the personal finance community, finding sound financial advice is no longer a bore or a mystery to the average Joe.
