You don’t learn much for typical blogs. I have learned a lot about investing and cryptocurrency from this one.

Cryptocurrency is still pretty new for the masses and this site does a great job of explaining the pitfalls you should look out for. Also describes in the most detail I have ever seen why a popular token is a scam. You really can’t read this article in entirety and decide to want to invest in it, but promoters shill it all over the web for the kickbacks they get.

I like the fact that this author doesn’t pretend that index funds are a secret and instead offers way of doing investing a little bit differently

A lot of the personal finance blogs that I have visited usually have very short articles that are easy to skim and finish within 30 seconds. They have the boilerplate topics like “only invest in ETFs” and “stay fully invested” and similar topics I have read dozens of times.

The articles on wantfi are varied with traditional financial advice but also goes against the grain on a lot of things. For instance, the latest article is about some stock picks. Try finding that on another FI blog.

The articles are all very detailed and long and sometimes takes a few sessions to absorb all the information. I also appreciate the extensive linking to sources. They read like a research paper.

Financial commentary and suggestions from an investment professional is a nice change of pace. Everyone else says the same thing, but Wantfi has some interesting new articles.

On most personal finance blogs, articles are written with affiliate links as the goal: “invest in art, here’s my affiliate link.” Ryan at wantfi doesn’t do this. It’s genuine honest advice.

No fluff here. So many FIRE blogs or personal finance websites just parrot the same generic information. That’s not a problem on wantfi

a different kind of personal finance blog

There are a lot of original topics and articles you won’t find anywhere else. Also, there are many articles where the author disagrees with ‘conventional wisdom’ or the ‘financial gurus’ and explains in detail why the gurus are wrong. Read the 401(k) article for instance. It will blow you mind!
