Since I started the Best of Credit Cards and Saving Money Carnival – might be time to shorten the name – I’ve started reading a lot of personal finance blogs. Some I like, some I’m indifferent towards, and some I started reading on a regular basis. Over the next few weeks, I’m going to be writing about blogs I started reading regularly. This week, it’s PTMoney.
What I enjoy most about PTMoney is the way Phil writes about his financial decisions. He lets you see how his mind operates and does a particularly good job of citing relevant articles he’s written. When I start reading one article, I end up reading three. That’s good blogging. This week, I was reading his Year End Tax Moves – a few of which I’ll be making – so if you haven’t thought about this subject yet, it’s a good post that will get your year-end financial gears going.
And now, onto the carnival.
