I’m happy to announce the formation of the new Money Tips Network, a conglomeration of a number of the best blogs focusing on personal finance and money. Consumerism Commentary has joined forces with these great blogs, and this group’s mission is to provide readers (and listeners) with with honest and helpful money tips. Why did I decide to partner with this particular group? I am a fan of all other blogs included as well as of this network’s philosophy: “We know a preachy, one-size fits all philosophy doesn’t work in the real world. It’s your wallet, your life. We want you to read our advice, throw in your thoughts and comments, and then apply it based on your own family’s needs.”
Some of the partners you may know from the Money Blog Network, which is extant in the form of the Money Blog Network Forums, and the Money Scribes, a less formal partnership. Here are the members of the Money Tips Network besides Consumerism Commentary:
