Free Money Finance has interesting posts and comments based on the book "Your Money Ratios: 8 Simple Tools for Financial Security" by Charles Farrell.
These ratios are important for the DIY investor not so much for their specific recommendations but more for people to see where they stand with their finances and to think concretely about the important questions.
What always strikes me about these blogs and financial seminars is that most of the people reading them and attending already have an interest in the subject and know much of the information. Where this is really valuable is for those who haven't thought about insurance, investments etc. These particular posts at Free Money Finance are very useful, especially for these kinds of people.
