Site Review: Joshua Brown’s Financial Blogger High School
Recently I’ve been recommended to check out Joshua Brown and his The Reformed Broker financial blog. While I enjoyed the entire site overall, I particularly loved the “Who’s Who?” section he maintains. In this section, he tracks all of the financial bloggers out there and throws them into a classroom as if the financial blogosphere was a high school. Now between the “Drama Club” and the “Detention” room, I’m still not sure which room I enjoyed the most. Seeing people like Tim and Mike in the “Drama Club” entertained me much.
In all seriousness, Josh has an excellent array of financial bloggers out there who are noteworthy. Even though many of them are well known by the mass, there are others I’ve never heard of. This is an excellent source of information for all of you who are interested in discovering new blogs and the players behind them, and you can absolutely bet I would start doing more research using this list myself.
What I also enjoy about his blog aside from the “Who’s Who?” section is his articles that cover diverse topics. While many of his posts cover financial related topics, he cleverly adds ‘personality’ to many of his posts (example). When reading his posts, it just feels more personable than reading some of the other financial blogs out there. Don’t get me wrong, professional and informative blogs are invaluable. On the other hand, it’s always good to have blogs like Josh’s in your RSS portfolio to keep your reads more fresh and interesting. Most importantly, he has good contents.
Simple and sweet. Definitely go check it out.
