One senior journalist has asked me for my views on India’s financial blogs. I normally do not do such things ….frankly I do not see the purpose. However, succumbing to pressure (or a vicarious pleasure of doing something like this?)…I said yes.

Now I have 2 questions to ask all you readers:

1. Which are the blogs that I should cover? (I do not think I will cover more than 10 of them)

2. What are the criteria based on which I should be JUDGING them?

will do the exercise …WITHOUT TALKING to the bloggers themselves – many of them I know.

I also know that an exercise like this will make more ENEMIES than FRIENDS…..but still…lets have fun 🙂

  1. 1. Which are the blogs that I should cover? (I do not think I will cover more than 10 of them)

    Subramoney.com for common sense and mistakes to avoid. Some personal recommendations are welcomed 🙂
    Jagoinvestor.com for awareness about processes and minimizing misery
    Capitalminds.in for coverage of micro and macro factors

    2. What are the criteria based on which I should be JUDGING them?
    will do the exercise …WITHOUT TALKING to the bloggers themselves – many of them I know.

    Criteria:(Reader specific)
    Potency to invest-time and money in learning how to invest?
    character- Lethargic vs aggressive?

  2. The good thing I got to see a few blogs I didn’t know before but the unfortunate part it seems we don’t have more than 10 blogs on personal finance which are reguraly updated!
    I too blog @ http://www.apnaplan.com and would request you to have a look on the same.

  3. OneMint.com , definitely. Hardly uses any jargon and responds to almost every reader comment. Plus has a nice section called “Suggest a Topic” and tries to put a post on the topic suggested by readers.

  4. There are many financial blogs catering to various segments of readerhip. However, as the readership segments are different and requirements are different, only thing that can be used to review is originality of the content and the inputs.

    Due to varied nature of readership, it will not serve the purpose if any other yardstick like useful ness to general readership and hits is considered.

    There are few finance blogs which i go through. Myjourneyto billionireclub which gives some planning tips and general encouragement on wealth creation, simpletaxindia for tax related matters(i considered tax as an integral part of financial planning). I also go through the columns of Sandeep shanbhag in DNA in finance matters. This column is available on DNA website.

  5. We want an effective NPA System specifically to handle a wide range of simple to complex tasks
    Also we need an automated data recording and reporting mechanism in order to capture only the most accurate picture of our bank at any given point of time as per RBI’s Guidelines .
