The fourth personal finance site in my series “Favorite Blog Wednesday” is Consumerism Commentary written by Flexo. Flexo says that he created the site in order to hold himself accountable for his finances by publishing account balances and spending info, and it has seemed to work as the site has a wealth of information that only someone whom has “found their way” could come up with. Also, Consumerism Commentary has been mentioned in many mainstream media outlets, which says a lot for the site as well. This site was another one of the “initial 10” sites or so that I discovered when I went looking for personal finance info, so it has been around for a very long time.
As for why I enjoy reading the site, it is because the information that Flexo writes about spreads itself across a broad spectrum of the finance world; meaning, you do not get bored reading about the same old same old. Too many blogs are only about ways to save money or get out of debt, and it is always refreshing to see a site have so many different subject matters. Consumerism Commentary is a very personal site, which is also something I look for in deciding what blogs I want to spend my time reading. There are so many of them out there that you have to use your time wisely!
Here are some interesting reads to familiarize yourself with Consumerism Commentary:
