Wow, I feel honored to be mentioned in this post Kent! I've enjoyed all of our discussions immensely and, as always, I enjoy reading TFP, which is a personal favorite.

Here are some other blogs I read regularly that cover a variety of topics:

-The Healthy Skeptic (http://thehealthyskeptic.org/about) A great blog that questions much of the mainstream advice about health and well-being.

-The Politics of Well-Being (http://www.politicsofwellbeing.com/) This is the blog of British journalist, Jules Evans, and it covers philosophy, psychology, and the politics of it all.

-The Technium (http://www.kk.org/thetechnium/) I'm fascinated by technology and the philosophy of technology. Kevin Kelly frequently shares radical and provocative ideas on the blog.

-Beyond Growth (http://beyondgrowth.net/) Duff and Eric, the main authors at BG, critique and explore the personal development field.

-Evolvify (http://evolvify.com/) Andrew Badenoch's site is all about the controversial field of evolutionary psychology. Although I don't always agree with him, he writes with a sense of tremendous sarcasm and wit, which I find very entertaining.

Kent @ The Financial Philosopher


It's all my pleasure! Our online discussions remind me of what I see as the original form of dialectic, beginning with Socrates and extending to Plato and Aristotle.

Already checked out a few of the blogs mentioned in your post and comments section. Leads!

Kent @ The Financial Philosopher

David: Your site (Finance Trends Matter) is a value to me. You never spin the facts into some kind of ideology. Thanks for your work at FTM and for reading my blog...



Very kind of you, Kent.

I definitely have a bias (pro-"free markets", liberty) and outlook skewed towards global macro or technical trading in my writing, which I try to be very up front and transparent about. Glad to know there are readers who don't feel bludgeoned by it!

Your site is a great resource for me. In my view, it is one of the few truly original blogs in the finance sphere and I always learn something when I stop by. So thanks again, and please keep writing!

Caitlin - Leadership Development

Feel free to call me boring but I just couldn't agree more! These wonderful tips will greatly help me improve my blog portfolio even more.
