  • Personal finance is a popular subject on many blogs. It’s also an important subject for students, and they can learn from the information and tips discussed on many personal finance blogs. Because students are more likely to get information from their favorite blogs rather than the daily newspaper, financial literacy educators might want to guide their students to some of these blogs.
