Compare the number of technology, anime and political bloggers to the number of financial analysis and wealth management blogs in the Philippines. No comparison. Personal finance, I feel, is a topic best left written by people who have the “K” to write about managing wealth because they actually practice it.
Welcome to Money
This blog is for those who want to know the ingredients, who want to be inspired by other Pinoys who give the rat race a kick on the butt, and for those who are already financially independent but want to coach some people along the way. This is a blog for Pinoys who want to be money-smart, not just rich, and for Pinoys who understand that the best way to focus on that goal is to help each other.
Money Smarts is written by the famous Salve Duplito. What I love about this blog is that it is going to become more of a conversation than an article piece as Salve encourages readers to become case studies in her blog posts:
I am also going to put so-called financial tips under the microscope and report to you if they really work in Money Myth Busters. (Do you have a tip you want me to test? E-mail me.)
Lastly, Iâ€™m looking for an individual (better if a couple) who wants to discuss his financial goals with me and, reality TV-style, record in this blog his journey to that goal with the aid of financial planning experts. (If you want to be this person, e-mail me!)
