Time magazine names Willamette grad’s blog among the best

Get-rich-quick schemes abound on the web, but for practical advice on how to do well financially over time, Time magazine recommends the blog of Willamette University graduate J.D. Roth ’91.

Roth’s blog, Get Rich Slowly, was recently named one of the 25 Best Blogs of 2011 by Time, which noted that “his advice is full of real-world wisdom.”

The Willamette psychology major started his blog in 2006 to provide sensible information and stories about personal finance, addressing topics such as debt elimination, saving money and practical investing.

Roth and his blog have previously been highlighted in numerous publications, including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and Money magazine, which named it “most inspiring money blog.”
