Revisiting the 2005 Twelve Blogs of Christmas: The F-series

Four of the cited blogs from last year started with the letter "F"; most were of a personal finance nature. Financial Rounds was a blog which started as a personal finance blog but seems to have evolved into a finance teaching blog. "The unknown professor" still links to Carnivals and web stories, but the blog probably would not be up for consideration this year. Nevertheless, Financial Rounds was one of the first blogs to link to Tick Marks; for that reason alone it will remain on my blogroll for a while to come. Best of the recent Financial Rounds material: http://financialrounds.blogspot.com/2006/11/milton-friedman-rip.html.

Perhaps the most cited financial-oriented blog in the financial press is Found in the Footnotes--and for good reason. Michelle Leder is very talented at finding interesting tidbits in the most obscure parts of the SEC form 10-K. A good recent example: http://footnoted.org/just-before-the-presses-rolled/.

The anonymous author of Free Money Finance has been an important force in the growth of personal finance blogging. One of the founders of the Money Blog Network, FMF often hosts personal finance carnivals and often has multiple posts in a single day. A recent example of FMF: http://www.freemoneyfinance.com/2006/11/how_to_pay_your.html.

Frugal for Life briefly left my blogroll this summer--then I returned to my senses. Dawn is a frequent host of personal finance carnivals and one of the pioneers in frugality blogging. A sample post from her blog: http://frugalforlife.blogspot.com/2006/11/5-frugal-questions.html.
