Worthwhile financial blog

The HowToInvestOnline blog is probably one of the best financial blogs you have never heard of. No other blogger seems to have it in their blog roll. It held a book give-away last summer and got only one response (and after the deadline).
The focus is on do-it-yourself investors. What I like is the way the author scours the Internet for information, tools and sources. Most posts are like chapters in a book on how to become a better DIY investor which makes the blog worth reading all the way back to its beginning in May of 2008.
Its written by Jean Lesperance, the 50s-something, Ottawa native who resides in Scotland most of the year and writes another blog called Canadian Financial DIYblog. He started writing HowToInvestOnlinewhen he was approached last spring by an ad agency to do a blog for discount broker BMO InvestorLine (see link from the home page).
