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 126
1. OnlyFans Review: How to Make Money on OnlyFans I Like To Dabble
“OnlyFans is the latest trending money-making side hustle people are pursuing to make money online. We finally decided to dig into the potential of this app a little deeper and do an OnlyFans review.
It’s had a raunchy reputation in the past due to the explicit content you can find from some creators (more on this below) but there are plenty of ways to monetize your OnlyFans account with your own custom creative content and we’ll be sharing that with you down below, with tons of examples!”
2. On Death and FIRE Fetching Financial Freedom
“FIRE doesn’t matter if you don’t have your health. FIRE doesn’t matter if you can’t be there for your loved ones.
In December a close family member died, in their 30s, and I still cannot believe it. They had a number of health issues, but none that my family thought could end their life, at least not in their 30s. We were wrong. I spent three months away from home, with family, helping out as I could, including going through their computer and helping their surviving spouse with childcare and organizing finances.”
3. Can Emotions Lead Us to be Rational? Emily Guy Birken
“If you listen to some of the louder voices in our culture, the fact that I express my emotions freely makes me weak and irrational. In fact, emotion is often conflated with irrationality, and both “emotion” and “irrationality” have been used as a justification for sexist attitudes, reactions, beliefs, and acts.
That sense that I was just an irrational girl in some people’s eyes meant I tried to hide my emotional tendencies for years. I hated my emotional side, because I felt like it detracted from my intelligence in some undefined way.”
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.
