Gather Little by Little – Blogging Based on Beliefs

April 9, 2009

We are living in uncertain economic times, but never fear, you have the best personal finance bloggers at your fingertips to help put things in perspective! Today’s spotlight takes a look at the site Gather Little By Little and the author’s take on personal finance.

I’ve gotten to know the author, sometimes known as Glblguy or Gibble, recently through his blog design business, Empty Cabin Media.  I worked with him on a project unrelated to personal finance and was impressed with his quality of work and his demeanor.  I think his writing over at Gather Little By Little reflects his personality and certainly his strong religious beliefs.

As it mentions on his about page, Glblguy was influenced by his beliefs to start a blog to help others going through financial trouble, because he went through  a financially challenging time earlier in his life. The blog definitely has Christian influences, but his information and guidance is geared toward anyone, whether religious or not religious. The site name is based on Proverbs 13:11, “Dishonest money dwindles away, but he who gathers money little by little makes it grow”.

What You Will Find On The Blog:

      Awesome Ben…

      It is good to see other personal finance bloggers who write with a focus on bible truths. I too ought to follow the advice of God above men, and so I do just that on my new finance blog

      DFA is written for 2 reasons only. To journal my adventure to become debt free using biblical principles, and to help others do the same thing!

      God has already greatly blessed over the course of our first 4 months and the fast growing traffic is very humbling.

      I encourage you to check the site out and honor us with your critique.

      In Christ,

      Matt Jabs
