A Brief Blog Profile: Smart on Money

by Thomas Hynes


Launched in 2010, Smart on Money is a blog focused on personal finance, investing, taxes and a variety of other topics.  The blog is not written by a financial expert, but rather a father, husband and lover of not only money matters, but also flag football and tennis. Mostly, he loves to write and help readers make sound decsisions. In short, he's a regular guy, who like Snoop Dogg, has his mind on his money, and his money on his mind.

Ok, that's not entirely true. Money really isn't everything to Smart on Money. Like I said, he's a father and a husband, and you get the feeling these two roles are far more important to him than that of blogger. (I just wanted to quote Snoop, ok?) In fact, on the blog today, you'll see a post encouraging people to appreciate what they have. We live in a material, get rich or die trying kind of world. It is seriously so refreshing to see anybody (let alone a finance blog!) espouse contentment. Plus, the video clip of Louis CK talking aboout this very subject on Conan. It's probably one of my favorite clips ever, and a clear indication that whoever is writing this blog is someone I understand.

And that's probably just it. Being smart about money probably means not spending it frivolously all the time. Contemptment, appreciation and satisfaction will not only leave you happier, but also with more money in your account. That's not just smart. It's genius.

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.
