NetworthIQ

NetworthIQ is a Web2.0 community dedicated to tracking each-other’s net worth.  The site allows easy tracking of your month-to-month net worth.  You can also search by job-type, age group, etc. to see what other people in your demographic have done with their money.  The site is set up like a blog, with monthly updates comprising each entry, and a comments section for other users share ideas.

Best Feature:  Insert a graph of your net worth growth/[loss] on your blog site.

 Caveat:  It looks like there are a significant number of bogus entries on the site, hopefully their moderators will be keeping those entires under control (for example, an under-25-year-old with 25,000,000 in cash, and no other assets or liabilities… hmm…).

 I’ve only just begun playing with this site, but I’m toying with the idea of using it to track my net worth and display it on this blog… however, its one more site to update, so we will see.

  1. Hi Ryan,

    I have one more question. Is there any way to develop an HTML-only badge? I’d like to display mine on my blog, but WordPress does not allow any javascript code…

  2. We can get really close with the current badge, converting to HTML only. The Net Worth amount would have to be updated manually though. I’ll put on the todo list a generated image for that so it can all be automatic.

    We’ll see how this turns out in the comment.
