Manage my own investments, Are you Serious ?
Read on for the Top 25 Must Follow Investing Blogs for 2016
Detailed historical information coupled with a personalized curated information flow enable the individual to discover, track and follow investment opportunities. However, the plethora of various experts can lead to information overload. One way to tackle this is to follow selected individuals who provide information in a manner which is fun, engaging and informative at the same time.
As an Entrepreneur running my own business, I am well aware of the upside that investing carefully can provide. Whilst keeping track of new waves to ride, one must simultaneously maintain a steady eye on the old maxims : common sense, value investing, and risk versus risk mitigation.
Parameters used to identify the Top 25 Investing Blogs for 2016 on this list
The humongous investment content available online can seem daunting. One is best served by evaluating his/her personal preferences and then following experts/blogs that are aligned to your risk appetite
The parameters that I have used to compile my list of 25 Must Follow Investing Blogs for 2016 are listed below
- Risk Appetite : I have listed experts who follow the Value Investing Model
- Debt Aversion : from going debt free to investing
- Sector Preferences: with a focus on Realty and Long term investments
- Lifestyle : frugal living, minimalism ( this excluding living on credit)
- New Wave : Upcoming new schools of thought blogs
For this list I have chosen websites that
- Have Personality – I enjoy reading blogs that take a position and back it up with facts. These are like friends who give good advice
- Global in Nature – In a Global Village, it is a necessity to NOT focus on only on the US but in general on valid maxims
- Centre around Investing – I have chosen blogs that mostly focus on investing and excluded those advocating certain lifestyles like couponing ( though I love a good discount too )
- Thought leaders – These are individuals well respected in the blogosphere and have been sharing information with their readers for years
- Are Easy to Understand – A lot of blogs are too technical in detail and somehow loose the big picture. I have selected those that are readable and fun
For e.g the experts/blogs I follow mirror my value investing nature coupled with a liking of frugal living and minimalism. I also follow blogs which reflect my thought process of being debt free and investing in realty. At the same time, new and upcoming blogs serve to rise upcoming trends and opportunities in the investment landscape
