I subscribe to about 25-30 personal finance blogs. Each day I get a ton of email. And sometimes I find it hard to keep up with all the emails. Today, I wanted to let you know which 10 I find myself reading most frequently.
Here is what I look for in personal finance blogs I read:
Good, consistent, quality posts that make me think. Since I only use email to subscribe it is important that I receive full text blog posts, not summaries.
There are a bunch of other great personal finance blogs which I wish I could include , but for the sake of time and space here are the …
Top 10 Personal Finance Blogs I Read
- Frugal Dad – When I do my weekly roundups you’ll see a lot of frugal dad posts. This site does a good job choosing topics that matter to younger families.
- Christianpf – Obviously I am attracted to blogs written from a Christian perspective. I think Bob does an excellent job including issues of faith and finances along with practical money saving tips.
- Personal Finance by the Book – Joe is a guy who seems to know what he is talking about :). He has a good financial knowledge base and articulates his points well. As another one who writes from a Christian perspective I enjoy reading the topics Joe covers. Since Joe has a little more life experience than the typical finance blogger I tend to listen more closely when he speaks.
- Bible Money Matters – Peter does a great job keeping track of the news and includes a lot of relevant financial topics. In addition, you get a good variety of writers – my self, Jason Price, and Peter.
- Sound Mind Investing – While I subscribe to the paid subscription there is also a lot of good materials on the visitor blog. I find out what is happening in the investing world from SMI.
- Free Money Finance – This was the first personal finance blog I ever knew existed. Probably about a year ago I was listening to a Crown Radio Show and they were walking about FMF. I would get on the site and save the documents as a PDF to read later. Now I know you can just subscribe for free daily emails. FMF has short thought provoking posts with a lot of relevant materials. He is one of those bloggers who lives the financial advice not just writes about it.
- Get Rich Slowly – On this site J.D. Roth does an excellent job reaching deeper on topics. From his posts you can tell he is well read on financial topics and wants to get to the reason behind the reason. His articles help develop a healthy fundamental view of finances.
- The Oblivious Investor – Mike always provides good solid investing advice. He has a simple and effective approach to investing. If you want to follow the investing news without the noise I suggest the oblivious investor.
- The Simple Dollar – Trent is a prolific writer. Subscribing allows me to touch bases on a large number of topics to get a great introduction to many different financial topics. His posts are though provoking and often open the door to some great discussions.
- Debt Free Adventure – I read DFA so I can live vicariously through Matt. I am not in debt (except the house), but I feel that reading his blog keeps me fresh on the issues and experiences of a person in debt. I want to appeal to that subgroup on my blog and Matt educates me through his blog.
