Finding Blogs and Websites That Are In Line With My Goals

On the Bright Side of Debt, Ms. Bright has a post (click here for it) where she discusses looking for blogs to read that resonate with her goals at this time in her life. There are a lot of blogs out there on Personal Finance and Frugal Living. I'm not finding a lot of blogs for women (or men) of my age in my position. Katie at Ladies in the Red is one of the few that I've found and she is based in the United Kingdom.

I see lots of blogs of twentysomethings, thirtysomethings, families, Christian based blogs, etc, but I have yet to find any that are written by anyone with a situation similar to mine (Ladies in the Red aside). The Debt forums I've found all deal with the pre-Bankruptcy process and folks struggling with Chapter 13's now having to do Chapter 7's.

Don't get me wrong, I love reading the blogs I've put on my blog roll and others that are in my Google reader. I'm amazed at what some of these folks are doing at such a young age. I wish I had access to this material 20 years ago, perhaps I would not be in the place I am now.

I'm always looking for good sites and blogs to link to. Contact me here or by e-mail if you want to do a link exchange.

Like you, I am a 40 something divorced woman trying to recover from bankruptcy. It is hard to find blogs that are similar in life experience. My blog is still fairly young and there isn't much there, but I'd love to exchange links.

I'll put you on my blog roll in the next day or two.

good luck with the C13.

I just spotted your blog. You are right about the dearth of older bloggers, but I have you beaten by 18 years! Makes you feel young, by comparison, doesn't it?

I see you've been a frequent commenter on my blog and finally made it over to check out your blog today. I've added you to my blogroll and reader as well. Off to troll through your archives now...
