IT’S BEEN THREE years since I launched this site—and I’m still not very good at guessing which articles will attract readers and which will go largely unnoticed. Partly, it’s the nature of the internet: The articles that rack up the most page views are often those that get promoted on other sites, and I have no control over that.

Still, I think the top 20 articles from HumbleDollar’s first three years make an intriguing list, all offering either great insights or lively writing, and often both. It may sound perverse, but I take pride in the fact that—of the five most popular articles—not one was written by me. HumbleDollar has become a place to showcase the stories and ideas of folks who enjoy writing about personal finance, but who often have no other connection to Wall Street.
