Be Money Aware: A Unique Personal Finance Blog

I am not a fan of international women’s day (8th March). I think it is condescending and insulting to women. The biggest mistake one can do is to compartmentalize human behaviour in terms of sex, religion, ethnicity etc. That said, today gives me an excuse to acknowledge one of the most impressive personal finance blogs I have seen:

Be Money Aware

The blog is authored by Kirti S Desai, a software engineer and mother of two. So what is unique about it?

Can you list active personal finance blogs authored by someone who satisfy the following criterion:

1) has not had formal education in the field of finance

2) does not offer financial planning services?

3) writes on a wide range of topics related to personal finance

4) well-established in terms of recognition among peers, been writing for long etc.

5) Is ethical. That is hosts only original content and provides references where necessary

To me the one blogger who comfortably satisfies all of the above is Kirti.

Want to conduct a sales-free "basics of money management" session in your office?
I conduct free seminars to employees or societies. Only the very basics and getting-started steps are discussed (no scary math):For example: How to define financial goals, how to save tax with a clear goal in mind; How to use a credit card for maximum benefit; When to buy a house; How to start investing; how to invest for and after retirement etc. depending on the audience. If you are interested, you can contact me: freefincal [at] Gmail [dot] com. You need to only cover my travel fare for the session.
