The journey to financial freedom is a long and lonesome journey. It would be entertaining and enlightening to have some like-minded companions along the way. Just like the movie Lord of the Ring - the fellowship of ring, a party of human, elve, dwarf and hobbits was formed but along the way, Bolomir got lured by the magic ring and was killed by the Orcs. In our world, some people will throw the white flag and surrender or some just want to take a rest and recover before continuing the journey. Its important for us, fellow financial bloggers to interact, encourage and help each other out by sharing useful tips so that we can all complete our journey to financial freedom.
Just want to pay special tribute to some of the SG Financial bloggers that in one way or another motivate me to start my own investment plan and be financial free! It has now been a daily routine for me to read through the blogs with my ipad, lying on my soft bed to give me some investment ideas every night before I sleep. If anyone ask me to recommend a good investment book to start off with, I would encourage them to read your blogs *serious*. Its definitely worth more than anything else because they are written and shared based on real life investment experience and real monetary stock transactions.
These are the 2 blogs which get my engine started:
http://ghchua.blogspot.com/ - a full time investor who was a moderator of sgfunds.com
http://sanye-investmentportfolio.blogspot.com/ - a disciple of ghchua
Thanks to the following financial aggregators for adding me into their list and get me exposed to hundreds of readers. At least I know I will not be talking to myself and some real people are reading my blog posts.
These are some of most active and wise bloggers who never fail to entertain me and give me investment ideas :)

Just to let you know I am a big fan of Lord of the Ring (LOTR) and Hobbit movies so will use some of the annotation from the movie to describe how you guys motivated me
If I am Frodo Baggins
You are Sam who is ever so loyal to accompany me in my long and treacherous journey towards financial freedom (Mordor)
Please do not be Boromir and try to steal the magic ring from me :)
If I am Bilbo Baggins
You are Gandalf, the grey wizard who is always looking out for me by telling me which stocks have value
If I am Gollum
You are my preciooous magic ring that I can always use it to make me invisible so that I can be safe
If I am Gandalf
You are Galadriel, the beautiful elve queen who always appear in the nick of time, sending giant eagles to save me from danger
