I use social media to interact with other financial advisors, to keep up with the latest financial and business news, and to share my thoughts with others. Here are some excellent financial blogs and websites that I follow via social media that you should check out.
Websites and Media
Market Watch is one of the best all around financial sites; I especially like their RetireMentors section which includes a variety of writers on topics useful to retirees and those planning for retirement. Robert Powell (twitter @RJPIII) provides some great insights on retirement-related topics.
Morningstar is still one of the best investing sites and their columnists provide some excellent insights into a variety of topics. I especially enjoy articles from their retirement guru Christine Benz (twitter @christine_benz) and John Rekenthaler.
US News Money provides a variety of articles on retirement, investing, and careers written by their staff writers and outside authors including yours truly. My posts appear on their Smarter Investor Blog. Columnist Kimberly Palmer’s Alpha Consumer articles are excellent as are Emily Brandon’s posts on the Planning to Retire blog.
Fellow financial advisor Jim Blankenship’s (twitter @BlankenshipFP) Getting Your Financial Ducks in a Row is a must read blog for information on topics relating to retirement. Jim is an expert on Social Security and also provides great information on IRAs, taxes, and a variety of essential financial planning topics. Jim’s book 0n Social Security is a must read.
Mike Piper’s blog Oblivious Investor does a great job discussing a variety of investing and retirement related topics. Mike is also a published author on retirement, Social Security and several other topics.
Frugal Rules is an excellent personal finance blog offering practical tips on investing, frugality, and a range of useful personal financial topics.
Robert Farrington’s blog The College Investor does a great job of discussing investing and a range of financial topics geared to younger investors.
