The MoneyBlogNetwork is proud to announce the addition of MightyBargainHunter to the network. MBH has been blogging for a while now and has a high-quality blog. Also, Scott at MoneyBloggerPodcast recently interviewed MBH. If you haven’t heard the podcast, you’ll want to check it out.
Welcome aboard, MBH!
I’m proud to announce that AllThingsFinancial, along with four other personal finance bloggers (Blueprint for Financial Prosperity, ConsumerismCommentary, FiveCentNickel, and FreeMoneyFinance) is now a part of the MoneyBlogNetwork (MBN). The MBN was formed with the goal of taking personal finance blogging to the next level.
We have a lot of interesting and exciting things in the works. And, in the near future we might be adding other personal finance bloggers to the network. Stay tuned!
One last thing, my job in the network is to head up a special MBN Blog of the Week. We will start this feature next week. Feel free to send in your submissions with “MBN Blog of the Week” in the subject line to:
Now, here’s our press release:
Top Personal Finance Bloggers Unite to Launch MoneyBlogNetwork
January 23, 2006 â€“ Five of the top Internet personal finance bloggers today announced they have banded together to create a first-of-its-kind personal finance blog network designed to put personal finance wisdom, best practices and commentary just a mouse click away.
The new network, with headquarters online at www.moneyblognetwork.com beginning today, will be composed of the following top-performing personal finance bloggers:
JLP of AllThingsFinancial
Jim of Blueprint for Financial Prosperity
Flexo of Consumerism Commentary
Nickel of Five Cent Nickel
FMF of Free Money Finance
â€œWeâ€™re confident the MoneyBlogNetwork will be the top â€˜one-stop shopâ€™ for personal finance information upon its introduction,â€ said FMF of Free Money Finance. â€œCombined, the five founding members get more than 4,000 daily visitors and more than 10,000 daily page views, and their work has been recognized in Newsweek, BusinessWeek, The Wall Street Journal, The NY Times, Yahoo Finance, PC Magazine and others.â€
The new network will begin with the five founding blogs and may elect to add others over time. Readers can subscribe to its high-quality information for free using an RSS feed, which can be accessed though the network’s home page.
Blogging networks have seen growing success in the past year. In October 2005, America Online announced the purchase of Weblogs Inc., a network of Web sites focused on a wide variety of topics. The deal was estimated at approximately $25-million, though financial figures were not disclosed.
I’m sure this answers a lot of questions for many of the personal finance bloggers (and likely brings up some new ones). For now, we’ve certainly got a lot to do, to figure out, and to work on, but we look forward to making the MoneyBlogNetwork something that benefits personal finance blogging, the blogosphere in general, and, of course, all of our readers.
