Effective April 1, Investment Advisor has launched two new ongoing Web logs at that authoritatively extend the magazine’s print offerings online.

A blog written by noted author and researcher Lewis Schiff, called The Affluentialist, explores the characteristics and expectations of a new breed of wealthy people that Schiff calls the “Middle-Class Millionaires,” and the significant business opportunities that they present now–and in the future–for advisors. Those advisors already prospering by serving these high-net-worth clients will be invited to participate in a separate forum on the site.

Another blog, written by advisor Mike Patton and called the Road to Independence, chronicles in real time Patton’s experiences in setting up his own independent financial planning and advisor firm.
