The Best 20SomethingFinance Posts of 2013

Last updated by on 4 Comments

20somethingfinance just hit its 6th birthday a few days ago. To celebrate the occasion and the past year, before moving on to new things, I wanted to recap the best of what happened on the blog over the last 12 months.

What a busy year it was!

I embarked on my most ambitious writing project to date – the Summer of Savings. The result was a 47 article, 3-month, ‘back to the basics’ series of articles on saving money across all of the major spending categories:

  • food & grocery
  • utility/telecom/entertainment
  • health care
  • housing
  • transportation
  • and DIY/household

It was exhausting to produce, but I enjoyed crafting and the ensuing discussions – and hopefully you enjoyed the series as well.

144 new posts in all over the past year (more than any other year), a few went viral, lots of new readers and great discussion, and despite frustrations with my spam filter (99% resolved now), I’m happy about how things went. Every year I feel like I’m going to run out of things to write about, but the frightening abyss from writer’s block gets filled somehow.

Before I move on to recap the best/most popular posts of 2013, lets take a quick trip down memory lane. Last year marked the 5th birthday of 20somethingfinance and it seemed momentous enough to compile a list of the top 25 ideological and top 50 strategic posts of the first five years. If you like taking a slow and scenic journey and want to dig in even deeper, you can always take a visit to the complete archive and start from the beginning.

Also – if you are relatively new here or haven’t yet done so, you can follow the 20SomethingFinance Facebook page, circle me on Google+, follow me on Twitter, or subscribe to get new posts – for free – via email or RSS.

On to the recap!

    I liked your October post of “How much should we save?”. This question had lingered on my mind for sometime now and you made an insightful post on it. Thanks!

  • Riley Smith says:

    I still remember your post about the question should US employers have the moral obligation to grant paid sick leaves. I’ve always believed that employers should give their employees some value and one way to do this is to grant paid sick leaves.

  • Wow You have been quite busy over the past year. I just found your site a few hours ago so I love that this list gives me a comprehensive look at your blog!
