When I first set out to create the ultimate list of personal finance blogs (The WT 100) I figured the entire list would contain maybe 50 blogs. But as I started jotting down the names of each of my “must read” blogs I realized there was no way I could trim it down to just fifty.
In fact, I had a heck of a time trying to cut it down to 100! Seriously, I could easily have expanded to 125 or 150, but you’ve got to draw the line somewhere.
There are so many great personal finance blogs out there and I know some really good ones just missed the cutoff. Those last few choices were not easy!

But I was bitten by the entrepreneurship bug when I was young and I long to be my own boss. Many of the blogs below talk about freelancing, self-employment, and quitting your day job. Of course, it’s also important to maintain a…
Work-Life Balance. This is an especially important theme for me. Working hard and making money is great, but money is only a means to an end. What’s your end? Mine is my family…I want to gain financial independence so I can have the freedom to spend more time with my family and enjoy life.
