I have to get a little rant out here this weekend. I really want to ask you guys something:
Why are so many personal finance bloggers broke?
Is this a common theme? How does this work in other fields? Are fitness bloggers out of shape?
I’m not going to throw anyone under the bus and I’m not trying to offend anyone. I’m just surprised that so many folks that are in debt start personal finance sites.
What do you think about this? Do you want to follow the journey as someone gets out of debt? Did JD Roth of Get Rich Slowly start a new trend?
The most interesting post of the week fits in with this theme:
I have to give Joan HUGE PROPS for paying off $25,000 worth of debt. That’s amazing. I also give her so much respect for owning up to her real amount of debt owed and sharing it with the world. I love to see stories like this.
I just don’t get the interest in taking advice from someone in debt. I’ve worked hard my whole life to graduate from school debt free, send my parents on a few trips (because we grew up poor), and so that I would never have to owe anyone anything.
Do we like the underdog story? Do we just like to see others overcome a struggle? Why is it that there are so many broke personal finance bloggers?
