Say Hello to RockstarFinance.com!

by J. Money on Friday, September 13, 2013

rockstar finance, rockstar money

I just put this new site together because I couldn’t get it off my mind: RockstarFinance.com

And, also, because I just want to promote the crap out of every GREAT FINANCE ARTICLE out there! Similar to our weekly roundups we do here, only in a much more fun and prettier set up :) (We’ll still be doing the roundups here too). The goal of the whole thing is simple:

If it’s awesome, it goes on the site.

That’s it. A collection of my favorite clips/vids/quotes about money, all set up visually like nifty little bookmarks to tickle your membrane ;) I’ll be sticking to the best, and filtering the rest! (That last line just took me 15 mins to come up with btw. And now after re-reading it again it looks lame! Haha…)

So. Now that I’ve gotten that excitement off my chest, NOW IT’S ONTO WHY YOU SHOULD CARE. And I’ll give you three reasons for that:

  1. Because it’s all about AWESOME money stuff!
  2. Because you want to meet and learn from other great finance bloggers/writers out there – not just from me. Even though we all know my opinions are gold ;)
  3. Because one of you lucky bastards will win a kick-ass pair of shades for following it!

How you can get your hands on these money shades:

money shades

If you do one or all of the following, you’ll have a chance to win a pair of these new glasses I just picked up. And for the rest of our lives we’ll be together as twins ridin’ around in style and looking as dapper as we can. I don’t know what’s cooler than that? :)

So start following and learn from the best! I’ll pick a winner for the shades in two weeks, but just be sure to let me know in the comments down below once you’ve entered. One comment for each entry, please – that way I know you’ll be accounted for appropriately when I run Random.org later to select the winner. You can enter a total of 3 times max.

Here’s the site again so you can judge if it’s worthy enough to be followed: RockstarFinance.com

Good luck! And thanks so much for supporting me all these years! :)

PS: If you’re a *blogger* and want to submit your favorite/best articles from your site, you can most definitely do so by filling out this form. I won’t be able to accept all of them of course, but I’ll be sure to read each and every one sent over so everyone has a fair shot. If I happen to pass on yours, def. feel free to shoot over another :)

PPS: If you’re a *reader* and want to submit any awesome articles/pics/etc you’ve come across in the finance world, I’d love to hear from you too! Some of the best stuff I read online is because y’all pass it over knowing I’m such a sucker for this stuff  ;) And it helps everyone else following along too.

Thanks again!

For some reason I read that as, “Can’t wait to dive in and EAT SOME CEREAL!” Haha… I think I need to do that myself!

21 Camilia September 13, 2013 at 9:54 am

I’ve done all three :) so far it looks like most of your readers prefer facebook over twitter

That site looks fabulous – I’ve already found three new blogs to become obsessed with. I’ve subscribed via email!

23 J. Money September 13, 2013 at 11:59 am

COOL!!! I love hearing that!! It really is about every one *else* out there, not so much me. It’s a lot more fun promoting others than myself :)

24 Samantha September 13, 2013 at 10:01 am

I’ve also liked you on Facebook. Along with 60 other folks!

I am just curious about how this is different from a Pinterest board

Reply

26 Camilia September 13, 2013 at 10:33 am

@Jan, the most obvious. way it is different is that readers aren’t forced to subscribe or join, they can read as a guest.

Reply

27 Jan September 13, 2013 at 10:59 am

You can do that on Pinterest too. You are not forced to subscribe or join to view. The reason I asked was because the layout of the new website is similar to a Pinterest board too.

Reply

28 J. Money September 13, 2013 at 12:01 pm

It is indeed similar to Pinterest, on purpose :) Only I own and control it and would like to think it’s a much more fun and juicy site than pinterest, haha… But they are rock stars over there too, no doubt about it. Wherever people wanna go to have fun w/ money is a-okay with me – as long as they’re learning!

30 Stefanie @ The Broke and Beautiful Life September 13, 2013 at 10:41 am

Thanks for putting this together! I’m always so overwhelmed by the amount of “rockstar” PF content out there. Glad to have an aggregate site.

Reply

31 J. Money September 13, 2013 at 12:03 pm

Great! I was surprised that there weren’t many others out there yet to be honest with you, but probably because it takes a lot more time to do than you’d think. I’m learning that a lot right now, haha… But on the other hand, my hope is that that’s what’ll separate this site from the pack too. I’m not adding up every other post on the internet up there – only the ones that strike as the best :) And of course I want it to be fun for people so I’ll be doing some cool stuff myself on it w/ original content. Thanks again for stopping by!

Great idea–and the panels for each link look good! Kind of Pinterest for money. Keep your right brain fired–you keep coming up with good ideas.

38 J. Money September 13, 2013 at 12:04 pm

Yup! You got it. I do my best and just hope one of them sticks, haha… so far this is looking like a winner though :)

Following on Twitter, Liked on Face Book..This is truly amazing. My eyes couldn’t settle on which to read first!

Reply

40 J. Money September 13, 2013 at 12:07 pm

GOOD! Love to hear that :) I won’t be inundating the site either with tons of new posts every day, so hopefully it gives people a time to really soak them in and read without feeling antsy that they have to get through all 50+ others going non-stop, haha… Or maybe that’s just the way I feel on sites like that? ;)

Reply

41 Giddings Plaza FI September 13, 2013 at 11:33 am

OK I’ve now spent some time on Rockstarfinance, and I’m liking it even more. You so far have some of my favorite blog posts, including MMM and financial samurai on retiring by 30. And a bunch of links to articles I haven’t seen before. Like it!

Reply

42 J. Money September 13, 2013 at 12:08 pm

You’ll like it more when we put one of your posts on it too ;) You better send me one or two you really love of yours so I can review them!

Awesome! Congratulations! Look forward to following/liking/tweeting/sharing and, of course, the obligatory 21st century messages in a bottle and carrier pigeon just for good measure.

Reply

49 J. Money October 3, 2013 at 9:38 pm

I would LOVE to come across a message in a bottle!! I wonder if anyone ever does that anymore?? I bet kids still do… In fact, I’m marking it on my list to do with mine once he’s old enough to play along, but not too old where he makes fun of me ;)

I can probably do without the carrier pigeon though.
