Giving You More at Currency & Wise Bread
November 3, 2010
You’ve been reading personal finance tips on Money Smart Life for over four years now if you’ve been a reader the whole time. Periodically during that time you may have seen me mention that I’d written something as a guest on another site. Typically I meet some neat new readers as part of this process, which is why I was excited when two new opportunities came up last month.
Now you can also check out my money stories at two other personal finance sites, Currency and Wise Bread.
Currency is a new site sponsored by American Express that covers money issues for people like me, who are in their 20’s or 30’s and wrestling with a wide array of money decisions.
The site just launched about a month ago and features content from top personal finance journalists and bloggers. As I mentioned, it covers a wide variety of financial topics, so far I’ve touched on home ownership and health insurance.
5 Reasons Why Your Bank Might Foreclose on Your Home – I share our story of buying a house on short sale and some of the our experiences with banks that help explain why so many houses go into foreclosure.
Health Savings Accounts – Who Needs Them? – If you’re trying to decide whether a health savings account is for you or not, I go into some detail on who an HSA works best for.
Writing Off Your New Home – Buying a house is expensive, in this article I talk about tax deductions you can take when buying and moving into a new home to help with the costs.
Wise Bread has been around for a few years and I just recently had a chance to virtually meet it’s creators. Like Currency, Wise Bread covers a variety of personal finance topics and has new articles coming out daily. The writers on the site actually came together to write a book about a year ago titled, “10001 Ways to Live Large on a Small Budget”.
The site has a great community and offers up some good money tips. Here are my contributions to Wise Bread so far:
