She has owned and lived in four homes from varied eras (three of which she upgraded and sold for tidy profits, one she occupies now). She also owns three investment properties and sold a fixer a few years ago in Palm Springs.  </p> <p>Nina is the founder and fearless leader of Queercents, a syndicate of personal finance writers serving the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community. But you don&#39;t have to be part of the LGBT community to benefit from Queercents.  As Trent from <a href="http://www.thesimpledollar.com/2007/02/07/the-simple-dollar-morning-roundup-hitting-on-all-cylinders-edition/">The Simple Dollar</a> once pointed out:</p> <blockquote><p> Although it’s awesome that they’re targeting such a specific audience, the truth of the matter is that <strong>Queercents is just a great personal finance blog, period.</strong> The writing is amazingly strong on a daily basis and I find the advice highly applicable to my own life as a heterosexual white Protestant living in rural Iowa.</p> </blockquote> <p>Check out the great content on Queercents and find out why Trent has such high praise for its writing:</p> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.queercents.com/ten-money-questions/">Ten Money Questions</a>: interviews with prominent people in the LGBT community.</li> </ul> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.queercents.com/category/sleeping-with-money/">Sleeping with Money</a>: love, relationships and money</li> </ul> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.queercents.com/category/what-would-you-do/">WWYD</a>: as in What Would You Do </li> </ul> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.queercents.com/category/in-search-of-gay-money/">In Search of Gay Money</a>: Queercents <em>reprints </em>advice from straight columnists by swapping out pronouns and a few other words to make it seem like the whole world is queer.</li> </ul> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.queercents.com/category/almost-debt-free/">Almost Debt Free</a>: John’s series about reducing debt, followed up with the recent <a href="http://www.queercents.com/category/bliss-chronicles/">Bliss Chronicles</a>.</li> </ul> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.queercents.com/category/wealth-consciousness/">Building Wealth Consciousness From Within</a>: How-To series from Dr. Lana highlighting our relationship between the power of the mind and wealth.</li> </ul> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.queercents.com/category/career/career-money-series/">Career &amp; Money</a>: Paula’s helps readers move beyond the daily grind</li> </ul> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.queercents.com/category/femme-economics/">Femme Economics</a>: Mooreas writings for just between us girls</li> </ul> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.queercents.com/category/religion-and-money/god-and-mammon/">God &amp; Mammon</a>: Aundi’s essays on god, religion and money</li> </ul> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.queercents.com/category/pink-green-parenting/">Pink &amp; Green Parenting</a>: How-To go green without wasting greenbacks as a queer parent.</li> </ul> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.queercents.com/category/reducing-pet-costs/">Reducing Pet Costs</a>: Andrea’s fetches a few tips to minimize the cost of owning a pet.</li> </ul> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.queercents.com/category/rising-cost-of-food/">Rising Cost of Food</a>: Serena’s cheap and easy ways to stretch your food dollar.</li> </ul> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.queercents.com/category/taxes/tax-guide/">Tax Guide</a>: Allison’s expert series in 2007, followed up with <a href="http://www.queercents.com/category/taxes/tax-tidbits/">Tax Tidbits</a> in 2008.</li> </ul> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.queercents.com/category/tipping-etiquette/">Tipping Etiquette</a>: Mike’s series explores the ins and outs of tipping.</li> </ul> <p>Please drop by the forum and <a href="/forums/bloggers-corner/ask-nina-queercents-question-women-personal-finance-spotlight-2907.html">have a chat with Nina today</a>. </p> <br /><div id="custom_wisebread_footer"><div id="rss_tagline">This article is from <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/lynn-truong">Lynn Truong</a> of <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/women-of-personal-finance-spotlight-nina-smith-of-queercents-here-to-answer-your-questions">Wise Bread</a>, an award-winning personal finance and <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/credit-cards">credit card comparison</a> website.
