ENTER THE FINANCIAL BLOGOSPHERE

“Shaolin shadowboxing and the Wu-Tang sword style. If what you say is true, the Shaolin and the Wu-Tang could be dangerous. Do you think your Wu-Tang sword can defeat me?”

And now, my Christmas present to all of you – your guide to the entire financial web!

I took 2011 off because I was consumed with writing the book, but there have been so many changes in the financial web since 2010 (see Financial Blog Wars) that I just had to get this annual update done for 2012.

As always, I did my best to make this as inclusive as possible, these are the blogs that I read (or wish I had time to read) somewhat regularly.  While navigating these chambers, please keep in mind that the blogs and sites listed were not listed in any particular order. Some of the blogs could have been placed in more than one category so I did my best to prioritize and organize intuitively. If I’ve missed your blog it’s because I’m only human, feel free to drop a link in the comments section below and we’ll have you in consideration for next year.

What are you waiting for?

“The sword it’s the best weapon of all. Two sharp edges and a long spine. The blade is very thin. And it’s easily damaged, you remember that. The vital thing is the point. Pay special attention to it. Your life can depend on it.”
