A Brief Blog Profile: Money Crashers

Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

by Thomas Hynes

 

Money Crashers is a personal finance blog out of Chicago. The site is administered by Andrew Schrage and Gyutae Park, but also features a host of other authors. In their own words, their goal is to "develop a community of people who try to make financially sound decisions." And they go about achieving this goal by educating their readers on the ways everything from small actions to big purchases affect your financial well being, or as they might put it, your financial fitness.

On this blog, you're likely to read about reviews of credit cards and advice on how to get out of an annoying mobile phone contract. On a third post, you'll read about smartphone apps that help you save money. This kind of stuff is helpful. It's also pretty standard fare for a personal finance blog. But what I really like about Money Crashers is where they go next.

Take for example this post on how to avoid freezer burn. You might be saying to yourself "what does this have to do with personal finance?" Well, think about it. Throwing away what could have been perfectly good food is not necessarily good for your food budget. The same could be said for this post on boosting your immune system naturally. Living well and living frugally can often intersect. In fact, you might save more than money. I'm looking at you, frozen foods.

ProfNet Connect

ProfNet Connect is a free, interactive online community where PR professionals, experts, and media professionals can network and engage with one another. Via profiles, forums and blogs, subject-matter experts can position themselves as the go-to source for content creators and journalists. In turn, content creators can search the site by keyword to find the experts they need. The site also features enhanced profile capabilities, allowing users to easily add multimedia components -- photos, videos, white papers and more -- to their profiles.

News Widget

Our widget allows you to display PR Newswire content on your site with very little back-end programming required.  You not only get the headline, but also the body of text of the news release, keeping the user on your site at all times.  In order to do so, the difference between our Widget and other widgets is at the end of the sign-up process, you will be provided with two pieces of source code -- one for the page where the Widget itself will be displayed and one for the pages that will display the body of text of each news release.  In addition, the sign-up process allows you to have 100 percent control over every aspect of the Widget's appearance, so that the Widget can blend in fully with the look and feel of your site. Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
