This is a fantastic site for both women and men, if you ask me. A lot of it will obviously be geared toward women, but there is a lot of good advice that you can take as a man and make work for you too. For example, financial articles, calculators and more.
On the home page, you can see all the hottest topics, articles, polls and discussions. Here you get little samples of all the site’s sections. These will whet your appetite. In the center, you’ll notice a rotating section that has highlights from the different categories around the site. I found some really interesting articles there, such as the one about the woman who’s making choppers (that would be a type of motorcycle) for women.
You’ll find that you can navigate to the different sections with the menu bar just under the search engine. The sections are: Home, Stocks & News, Tools & Resources, Columns, Community and Giving Back.
But, before you go navigating all over the place, I want to talk to you about signing up. If this is a site that you could see yourself really using on a day to day basis, you should seriously consider signing up. There are three great reasons.
1. Every time someone signs up to be a member, they donate money to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This is a cause I wholeheartedly support. It doesn’t even cost you anything to sign up either.
2. You can save your favorite articles and discussions as you are browsing the site, so if you have limited time to read something, you could always save it and come back to it later.
3. You can get two newsletters delivered to your e-mail address: DailyCents and Best of WWS. DailyCents is a newsletter that arrives daily and shares articles that help you save money or they sometimes offer a financial tip. Best of WWS comes once a month and basically summarizes all the great articles featured that month.
The reason I mention it before you go browsing is because I found a lot of articles that I wanted to save so that I could share them later with my mom or my roommate. I had to do a lot of back tracking to find them all too and I want to save you that frustration.
Stocks & News – Here you can find the latest stock information, as well as, get great articles about investing, preparing for retirement or saving for college. You’ll find all the latest news here too. Check out the side menu to browse the different topics in this section and see a listing of columns that fall under the Stock & News category.
Tools & Resources – This section is full of stuff that I can see myself using everyday! There are calculators for mortgages, investment, lease and retirement highlighted right in the middle of the page. On the side menu, you can find Checklists, Credit Card Offers (you’ll find each card listed has been thoroughly reviewed and lists both the pros and cons of each card, which makes it really helpful if you are considering getting a credit card), Quizzes & Surveys, a Job Search and much, much more.
Columns – This is the main page for the columns area. Here you can access all the columns in one place. There are a lot of great reads here, so take your time as you look through them.
Community – Here you can put your finger right on the pulse of the hot discussions going on right now. You can interact with other readers by sharing your opinions too. Some of the hot topics when I was there were “Should teachers be armed in the classroom”?, “A Blackberry Jam” and “Breast Cancer.”
Giving Back – Here you can find out all about the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and what WWS is doing to give back to the community.
I hope you find this site as useful as I did. Go ahead and bookmark it and visit often!
