I'm an avid reader of several blogs in the fields of Personal Finance, Simple Living, and Frugality. A very active community of bloggers and commenters has sprung up in these fields with a lot of participation in the Carnival of Personal Finance, Festival of Frugality, and other online activities. The bloggers cover many of the same topics as well-known personal finance columnists from large media outlets. But they do it in a much more personal style, sharing things like their net worth and their financial mistakes and successes. I've found much better advice on topics like wise use of credit cards, the best online banks, and careful shopping from these bloggers than from any other source.
I thought it would be fun for the bloggers and their readers to hear from each other in a different medium. The Money Blogger Podcast will be a weekly phone interview with one of my favorite bloggers, and we'll cover everything from why they blog to their favorite advice on personal finance. I might even try to get some macro-economics bloggers to participate, since the connection between personal finance and global finance is one of my favorite topics.
I invite your comments about the podcast. And let me know what bloggers you would like me to interview, and I'll see if I can get them on the phone.
