I’ve been reading blogs for over four years now, and one of the first blogs I started reading was All Financial Matters. I like it so much that I’ve actually covered for JLP when he’s gone on vacation in the past
What I love about AFM is that it’s all stuff I would never write myself. JLP is a real numbers guy and so he discusses all kinds of investment returns, much of which goes over my head but which is also interesting even if I don’t completely understand it. He even creates his own spreadsheets to illustrate his points. He also discusses investing and investing philosophies (if I recall correctly, he’s an independent certified financial planner). That’s always compelling to me because it’s the area of personal finance that I know the least about.
Another nice thing is that JLP’s kids are several years older than mine, so it’s like getting a preview of what’s to come, finance-wise. He’s discussed the increasing cost of his son’s shoes, his son’s summer jobs, and allowances. So be sure to check out AFM!
