This is one of those posts in which I say “stuff it”, and cast all modesty aside. Media intelligence company Cision has published a list of the Top Ten UK Personal Finance Blogs – and I’ve made the cut! I’m pretty chuffed.
Here’s the list in full:
THE TOP TEN UK PERSONAL FINANCE BLOGS
With the UK in a deepening recession, it is no surprise that blog readers are in favour of money saving tips. Our Top 10 Personal Finance list indicates the keen interest in personal stories through this recession, with FruGal, Recessionista and Miss Thrifty all offering their own accounts of life on a budget while offering useful advice.
Combining visitor, search and social metrics with in-house expertise, Cision identifies the most read, most discussed and most influential names in the UK personal finance blogosphere.
2. Motley Fool
10. Recessionista UK
The workings-out are rather mysterious – I am surprised to find Miss Thrifty above Martin Lewis’s Blog, as I’m sure that Martin Lewis has a ton more traffic and “influence” than I do – and a couple of top notch UK personal finance blogs are conspicuous by their absence.
At the same time it’s great to see some old friends and favourites on the list: hello FruGal and Recessionista Sister! I am also having fun checking out some of the other blogs on the list; I’ve just added Money Watch to my reader.
I have noticed that you don’t get a prize for being on a list like this, but you do get sent many more press releases.
