A Brief Blog Profile: Novel Investor

by Thomas Hynes


The personal finance blog, Novel Investor, promises 'fresh, practical ideas for your money.' Their goal is to arm investors with the tools they need. The site covers retirement planning, market evaluation, stock information, portfolio management and a host of other topics germane to the investing community. And to that end, their goal is to help both the individuals at the beginning of their financial planning career as well as professionals who want to stay up to speed on the news and resources they need.

Truthfully, the site is quite helpful. On Novel Investor, you'll read basic questions answered, such as what investment strategies are best. There's also primers on how tax brackets work. That may sound rather elementary to some. But maybe there are people out there who write about blogs all day and therefore maybe don't fully understand how the tax brackets break down. This is the site for them, too.

But this is by no means "investing for dummies." (Though, again, this dummy does find it very useful.) On Novel Investor, you'll read about IPOs and the Payroll Tax. Still, there's a sense of humor to this site, too.  For instance, you'll read about something called the Mustache Tax Credit.  They're quick to point this out as another example of the "screwy" tax code. And it's true. The financial system is complicated. It doesn't always make sense. People would be smart to invest their time reading blogs like this.

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.
