Blogroll Update

Over the last couple of months I have come across many new great personal finance blogs, and I have started to follow couple of them on regular bases and participate actively through comments. Although I on any given day I read several blogs and have subscribed to most of them here are a few that have a similar focus to Financial Highway and I believe our readers will find interesting. These blogs are now added to My Blogroll:

Four Pillars: The great thing about this blog is that it covers both, Canada and US topics. Four Pillars has two authors, Mike and “Mr. Cheap”. Mike resides in Toronto (as do I) and covers many topics relevant to Canadians, Mr. Cheap is lives in the US and covers the US section of the blog. Topics are not always specific to US or Canada often they are broad discussions that apply to both.

The Oblivious Investor: This is one of the newer blogs I have come across and been following fairly regularly. The author and I seem to have many things in common so naturally I find the topics interesting and worthwhile reading. The main focus of The Oblivious Investor is investing he covers the whole spectrum, if investing is your interest than this is a great place. Although based in the US, most discussions are universal and apply to Canadians as well.

My Life ROI: The interesting thing I found out about MLR just recently is we almost started blogging on the EXACT SAME DAY! MLR started on Feburary 17 where Financial Highway started on Feburary 18th! But this is not why MLR is going on my Blogroll. MLR covers a wide range of Personal Finance topics, you will not find a lot of investing topics here but the main focus is providing readers with tips on how to do things.

I hope you enjoy these blogs as much as I do.

    …which reminds me that it’s probably time to do an update on my own.
