When I first started reading finance articles online somewhere between 2007 and 2009, one of the first authentic voices that I discovered was J.D. Roth of the website “Get Rich Slowly.” The blog was written in a diary-style format that really give you insights into both the psychological and mathematical aspects of debt elimination and the pursuit of investments.
Sometime during The Great Recession, J.D. Roth decided to sell his website to Quinstreet. A lot of readers held this against him, particularly the fact that he agreed to a non-disclosure agreement in which there was a waiting period before the audience learned of the sales.
