Welcome back to another edition of the Friday Blog Roundup. This week’s installment is a special one as I focus on physician bloggers, a segment of the personal finance blogosphere that is near and dear to my heart (for obvious reasons). First, I’ll share some great posts from a few blogs that have been around for a while. Then I’ll highlight a couple of new ones that I think are going to be interesting to follow. I hope you enjoy!
Physician Blog Roundup
Let’s be real. We live in a consumerist society. Buy, buy, buy. Not too helpful if you’re striving for FI. The key, according to Passive Income MD, is to be an owner, not a consumer, to achieve financial freedom.
Sometimes personal finance can get so complicated that we lose track of the basics. Don’t worry. Wealthy Doc has your back and summarizes a number of investing myths that we should always keep in mind.
In a post that every resident and newly-minted attending should read, Investing Doc talks about the golden handcuff for doctors, otherwise known as loan forgiveness.
I’m an index fund investor all the way, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a place for individual stocks in a portfolio. Physician on Fire talks about why he purchased an individual stock.
The Wall Street Physician, in a guest post on Physician on Fire, writes about sequence of returns risk and how it can impact an early retirement. Complete with graphs. And rollercoasters.
New Docs on the Block
Lastly, I’d like to highlight some new physician blogs. Well, new to me anyways. As I mentioned before, I have a soft spot for physician bloggers because I can relate to a lot of what they write about. Two new blogs in particular resonated with me on a number of levels. First, both Random Gal and I are docs. Second, we’re in the process of getting rid of my student loan debt. So, these are two new doctor blogs that I will surely be following.
Two docs who are in private practice. It seems like their site will be geared more toward two physician/two high earner households, but I’m sure their content will be nonetheless interesting and informative. Their most recent post talks about how they improved their net worth by $730,000 in less than three years. This one gives us a nice summary of their story.
Another physician couple working to pay off student loan debt. Their stated goal is simple: Get rid of their student loans ASAP, and make other smarter financial decisions along the way. Be sure to check out and follow their progress. I know I will.
Thanks for checking out this week’s installment of the Friday Blog Roundup, and for coming back after my four month blogging hiatus. Until next time!
