Money Web Issue #16: your weekly round up of the best of British blogging

British Blogging

There’s an increasingly big and brilliant haul of stories and advice out there about the pounds in our pockets. Each week, we scour the best of the UK’s personal finance blogs and tell you what caught our eye.

Good With Money

Why the gig economy sounds better than it is

Good With Money is a blog dedicated to helping people make their money go further. It was set up by Lisa Stanley and Becky O’Connor who both worked in comms and financial services previously.

The gig economy can be useful – you pay people to run your errands for not too much money. However, many of those on the other side of the fence are being pushed into working unreliable hours for unfair pay. This interesting piece by Good With Money highlights that the gig economy isn’t about helping people who are being ‘left behind’, it’s about exploiting those who have to accept whatever work they can find.

The Financial Diet

What The Right Friends Will Do For Your Life & Career

Going a little off-piste – as we usually just include British bloggers in this round up – this blog is NYC based but it’s a great one, so here we are! The Financial Diet claims to be ‘a website about money, and everything it touches’ and we can’t disagree with that now, can we?

This post is an important one, containing advice that many ignore. The Financial Diet preaches the importance of surrounding yourself with good people – people who support you and your dreams, and who’s company elevates the best version of you. Do this and your lifestyle and career are sure to benefit.
