    Larry,

    You don't have a category for "income" under personal finance, which leaves some gaps:

    passive income
    investment property income
    family businesses
    trusts
    self-employment
    dividends
    bond yields
    distributions
    capital gains
    home-based business
    yard sales

    I would also like to see some kind of category for parenting and personal finance, teaching kids about money, either as an overall or as subcategories where relevant.

    Ditto financial literacy, financial education, courses, self-education around personal finance.

      Hi Jenny,

      I agree with you.  I'll add categories for Parenting & Personal Finance, Finance for Kids, Financial Literacy, and Income & Spending.

      This is great feedback.  smile
