Blogging Advice from Top Bloggers

Being relatively new to the personal finance blogging community I searched around for articles from other successful PF blogs on how to set up a blog and make it successful. I found a few real keepers, and thought I would share them here.

The first two are recent posts, and the others reach back some, but their advice is timeless (and invaluable). Put these into practice and you’ll be writing your own blog in no time.

Blogging Tips for Success

Clever Dude wrote a great article titled “How I Monetize my Blog.” In the article he describes the various ways to make money blogging, the advertisers used, and he shares his general philosophy on the influence advertisers have over personal finance bloggers.

The Simple Dollar devotes an entire category of posts labeled “Building a Better Blog.” Because I couldn’t single out a specific article amongst the great ones listed, I decided to link the entire category. Seriously, it is that good!

If you know of any others you feel should be included, please include in the comments so all us “newbies” may use this post as a resource to make our own personal finance blogs successful. I’ll be putting together some of my own lessons learned in a post soon.


  1. Glad I could be of help. Don’t forget my “50 Tips for New PF Bloggers” article. I was told it’s good for all bloggers, but since I labeled it already, it stuck.

  2. Millionaire Mommy – Thanks for the tip on, off to check that one out.

    Clever Dude – I missed that article, but it is a great one! Thanks for leading me to it.

  3. Thank you so much for the link- I really appreciate it. You are doing great things over here- REALLY great things!!

  4. Great site! Serves as a reminder for everything thats great about this country. Brings to mind one of my favorite quotes, “I may not agree with what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it”Thanks,Tom
