Personal Finance Bloggers are An Incestuous Bunch :-)

Welcome to How I Save Money.

And a special welcome to readers of ProBlogger, who got here via the group writing project.

Have you ever noticed that Personal Finance Bloggers are an incestuous bunch? While the title was  written to catch your attention I mean that in a positive way. PF Bloggers as they refer to themselves are incestuous in the sense that they all link repeatedly to each other, kind of like that bunch up in the hills that ‘link’ to each other too.

If you get a link from one PF blogger then it encourages others to link to you if they hold the first linker in high esteem.

Usually if you link to one of them first they will return the favor…sort of like spreading the link disease around. If that is the way it goes then go ahead and infect me with your linkbacks! 🙂

I love being a personal finance blogger and I would not trade it for the world. Because of this incestuous relationship I have learned about:

* Debt Snowballs


* Carnivals

* Credit Card Management

* Debt Reduction

* Online Income

So thank you to all my brothercousinuncleneiceinlaw personal finance bloggers who have infected blessed me along my journey to find ways to save money and reduce my debt load.

  2. I am glad you got where I was going with the title. PF Bloggers know more about my money than my family does. 🙂

  7. Great title and fun post! I found you from problogger because I am doing the writing project as well.

    I hate debt and we are about as frugal as you can get. Sometimes I think about joining the PF blog world as it is right up my alley.

    We are going on our 3rd year traveling the world now as a family though, so I have enough on my plate with one website. 😉 I do write posts from time to time on how to live large on little since we travel the world on 25k a year ( total costs for a family of three), so have learned lots of secrets along the way.

    Waving to you from Sweden today! Good luck with the contest and clearing your debt!!

  12. Nice title. 🙂

    I’ve noticed that freelance writers are the same way with their blogs. I think a lot of it is just that folks run out of blogging ideas and are always looking for things to write about. It makes sense to link to others in your niche.
