It’s been an eventful year with the global economy. Personal finance is becoming a more important topic to discuss and learn. I really believe 2009 will be a big year for many personal finance. The economy won’t be fixed overnight and people will have to be more conscious of their spending if they want to ride this through. 

Do you need tips for 2009? Mara has already got a list compiled to help you jump start your finances. check out her post New Cash For The New Year 2009: Tips From Top Money Bloggers.

There was a tremendous amount of great information in 2008 for personal finance. I searched over 100 personal finance posts to find a great collection of articles that are helpful for this reflective round up. Thank you to all the bloggers who put such an effort writing and thanks to the wonderful readers who have been following us.
