Joshua Brown, writer of The Reformed Broker blog, has just updated his list of top finance blogs. He has also put together a very handy, and humorous, graphic of his rather unique categorization. Brown said the blogs included have “either inspired, educated or entertained me in some way, so I figured I’d return the favor”.

It is a great honor for Investment Postcards to be included in the company of some industry heavy weights. Merci beaucoup for the compliment Josh!
