This is the 300th post of Top Finance Blog. It comes just beyond 18 months of ownership after taking it over from someone else who decided after a month that he didn’t have the time for it.

I’ve been giving some consideration as to just where I believe this blog should go. I’ve written many posts on the current news stories of the day, and I’ve written some instructional posts as well. I’m not really sure which types of articles most people really enjoy. For instance, here are the top 5 most visited stories in the past month:

Famous People Who Lost It All – 28

Visa, Mastercard or American Express – Which Card To Choose – 26

What Are The Different Factors That Affect Mortgage Rates – 20

More Than 700 Banks In Trouble – 17

My Financial Goals For 2009 – 16

These are the top visited posts in the last 100, mainly duplicates:


Famous People Who Lost It All – 124

My Financial Goals For 2009 – 108

List Of Financial Terms – 93

More Than 700 Banks In Trouble – 79

What Are The Different Factors That Affect Mortgage Rates – 77

And finally, the most visited posts ever on this blog; once again, mainly duplicates:


My Financial Goals For 2009 – 338

Famous People Who Lost It All – 275

Ten Most Affordable Cities In The U.S. – 188

List Of Financial Terms – 182

416 Banks In Trouble – Oh My – 105

Finally, the top categories I wrote about:


banking – 52

financial health – 49

credit cards – 31

housing markets – 24

health care – 20

Overall, it seems that when I write more personal financial things that people respond. Then again, the budgeting posts didn’t seem to go anywhere, which tells me that most people really don’t want to think about budgeting their money, even though, in my opinion, it’s one of the most important things anyone can do for their financial health.

No matter; I believe there’s no real consensus on what this blog should specifically be writing about other than commentary and news, and since those are the goals of this blog anyway, I promise to continue giving a lot more of that, as well as an occasional educational post here and there to break things up. Onward and upward towards post #400; I hope you stick around, and invite friends. The more the merrier.
