Welcome to another week of the Women’s Personal Finance Wednesdays roundup. I started this series after months of debate because I wasn’t certain I wanted to up the ante and commit to publishing three posts a week. However, now that I’ve started sharing these posts, I’m so glad I started.
There are so many fabulous women writing about personal finance online, and yet there is still a perception that women aren’t good with money, don’t care about money, or don’t understand it on a granular level beyond perhaps knowing how to coupon and score a good shopping deal. These roundups are my way of doing a small part to change that perception. There are no shortage of women online doing their part to make it clear that they DO understand money, and these posts are meant to amplify that fact.
The hardest part of this post every week always is narrowing it down to my favorites, because there is just so much good content out there.
Our Women’s Personal Finance Facebook group also has a sharing thread on Fridays, and that’s the place to read all the blog posts written by members over the previous week. If you’re looking for more articles written by women, that’s a great place to continue reading (plus we have plenty of great discussions on finances the rest of the week as well!).
If you don’t have the time or inclination to go searching down myriad posts, though, I will be continuing this series every week to showcase some of the best of the new content I read. If you ever read a post you think I absolutely need to consider for this roundup, please let me know! I am always open to reading new blogs (and posts of blogs I do know, because I miss some).
Women’s Personal Finance Wednesdays – Week 114
1. Personal Finance / FIRE and Giving All Options Considered
“If we underspend in our food budget, we don’t run out and buy food. If we underspend in our clothing budget, we don’t buy more clothes. But underspending in our giving budget means we can give more, so today I made our last two charitable donations for 2020.”
2. The Year of Me (A Self-Care Journey of Healing and Self-Discovery Minivan Adventures
“But something changed during my Year of Me. I gained confidence and became stronger. My positivity journal reminded me that I had worth and value. It showed me that I deserved respect. Through little steps, I learned that I could do difficult stuff and accomplish great things. It buoyed my spirits and showed me that I can create a better future for myself.”
3. Exploring Generational Poverty: What it is and How to End it Partners in FIRE
“Trickle-down economics was a fun thirty-year experiment that didn’t work. It led to huge levels of income inequality and made it more difficult than ever for people to advance in socioeconomic status. It’s time to end this system that benefits only the richest among us, and start looking into programs that would help everyone.”
As always, if you’re looking for a categorized list of self identified women writing and speaking about personal finance, here is my comprehensive guide to the Women of the Financial Independence Community.
