Here are a few of the blogs I follow, most of them go into my Google Reader and I read several article at a time when I have a moment.
The first blogs are among the most popular PF blogs, so if you have stumbled upon my blog before those (really??!!), I strongly encourage you to have a look at their quality content.
Ramit Sethi’s blog takes personal finance to a whole new level. While most PF blogs are about pinching pennies and if you’re lucky finding sources of extra income, Ramit talks about money psychology, why we behave like we do and how we can get anything we want in the whole world if we put in the time, effort, and his well studied techniques. He dissects everything, using persuasion tricks in job interview, smart automation and time-saving tools for daily tasks, and so on.
I have followed Ramit’s blog for about 5 years now and am amazed at how when he hustled his way to the top (his book I Will Teach You To Be Rich is a NY Times Bestseller), he didn’t just seat there, he spotted a higher level and just went for it.
Another blog I’ve been following for years, though now that it has multiplied staff writers I tend to read some writers only. GRS is about J.D. Roth’s journey out of debt and his personal transformation to be a better human being. He is a great story-teller and I like the Slowly in Get Rich Slowly, J.D. is showing us that you can reach any goal with little steps, if you are dedicated enough.
A lovely girl from Canada living in the US now, talking about money, but also minimalism, food, fashion… I really like her style, that blog is light, like an informal discussion with a friend, mixing articles from two other bloggers now that she sold the blog to TFB.
I had been following other girls blogging, like meinmillions or My Open Wallet, but they stopped posting, and while I find some interesting articles sometimes, I’m not into the couponing or being a mum blogging, so I’m still looking for a good, funny, smart independent girl in her 20s or 30s to follow on a regular basis.
J. Money, you rock!! this guy is so funny, writing about a bit of this and that, from being a new dad to converting his basement into his office to blog full time, love his style!
Two blogs targeted to my age group, where I generally find interesting information, although since I don’t live and/or work in the US, I don’t have much interest in the 401(k) and Roth IRA or life insurance articles. A good read about big money decisions when you start working, like negociating salary, buying your first house, and starting your financial life on solid ground.
This blog is fantastically written by a single mother of four who was struggling in California, after she got fired and hit hard by the Great Recession. Living in a trailer park, she talks about the little things she does to keep her head high and educate/entertain her kids. They are now relocating to the rural Midwest and looking at self-sufficiency, should be interesting!
