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.
It wouldn’t be The Simple Dollar if I didn’t include at least one unusual entry. Ask Metafilter would probably not match anyone’s definition of a personal finance site. It’s a site that allows members to post questions on largely any topic that the community then discusses in detail. It’s heavily moderated, so the discussions stay on topic while still retaining a lot of flavor.
The end result is that Ask MetaFilter is one of the best places on the internet to turn when you’re looking for input on any number of ideas, from personal finance questions to vegan food recipes. Ask MetaFilter is the only site on the internet from which I learn something on every single visit. If that’s not valuable advice, then I don’t know what is.
In short, the strength of Ask MetaFilter’s community along with their willingness to discuss personal finance issues in a mature fashion make this an essential site for personal finance readers.
