About a year ago, I had an idea for something new.
At the time though, I was going through a number of changes on this blog, in my recently closed subscription box company, and in my personal life.
My idea was to provide personal finance enthusiasts a way to get all newly published personal finance articles and podcast episodes in real time in a visually appealing way.
At my day job, I spend a lot of time thinking and implementing processes which heavily employ automation and programming to get things done without manual efforts.
My vision was to employ the same tactics for this project, but at the time, as described above, I didn’t have the time or skills to complete the entire picture.
Over the last year, I’ve been learning more and more about the necessary skills to design a visually appealing website, use PHP to customize and automate certain elements in a web page, and run a successful business online.
Now, I’m very excited to announce that this idea has finally come to fruition.
Over the last few weeks, I’ve been working on a new personal finance content curation website: Daily Finance Blogs.
Today, I’m sharing it with you and the world.
In this post, I want to touch on a number of things regarding this new website and talk about what is Daily Finance Blogs, why I created this new website, talk about the time and money spent to get it up and running, and my game plan going forward for it.
What is Daily Finance Blogs?
First, let’s talk about what is Daily Finance Blogs and the features of Daily Finance Blogs.
Daily Finance Blogs is a personal finance content curator which aggregates blog posts as they come out and features them in real time.
I created the website for personal finance enthusiasts. My hope is it will help provide readers a one-stop shop for all of their personal finance content needs, and also will provide a way for personal finance bloggers to gain exposure with their content.
In real-time, Daily Finance Blogs is pulling in content from many different sources (blogs and podcasts).
When Daily Finance Blogs recognizes there is a new post, I’ve set up filters for the post to categorize the new posts into 6 categories:
- Debt Freedom
- Financial Independence
- Increasing Income
- Money Saving
This way, people visiting the website can see new posts in the category they most care about. such as investing as shown below:
Daily Finance Blogs Features
Two of the features I’m most happy and proud of are the automation to post to Twitter, and share in a daily email newsletter.
When a new post comes in, I automatically share the link on Twitter.
What is amazing is that this tweet points the link towards the source’s post (and not my post). Also, I’m able to tag the source, notifying them of the share.
