The Simple Dollar is celebrating this weekend after Thanksgiving with a review of ten personal finance sites that I visit every day without fail. These ten sites provide a large helping of food for thought on personal finance topics and my day wouldn’t be complete without the opportunity to visit them. Please, give these sites a click.
The Wall Street Journal
My favorite newspaper is the Wall Street Journal. I often bury myself in it over lunch and I never come away from it without learning something, and I can’t recommend anything in print higher than the good ol’ WSJ.
The (free) Wall Street Journal website is the perfect complement to the print version. It is a meshing of the tight writing and solid reporting of the print version with the up-to-the-second reporting that we all expect from the web. I can scarcely keep my mouse away from the site, which I visit several times a day to read up on financial news of all stripes.
One also has the option to subscribing to the print version via the website. I’ve used this interface in the past and it is about as solid as one could hope for if you’re looking for a duplication of the print version online. However, I truly love my print version at lunch; I doodle and scribble all over it (and sometimes dog-ear it with a bit of coffee); the online version just isn’t quite the same experience.
If you’re looking for up-to-date financial and business news and expect solid writing and research, you really can’t go wrong with the Wall Street Journal’s website.
