Top 100 Blogs for Personal Finance Fanatics

Whew!  Writing this post was exhausting!best personal finance blogs

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!

What Makes These the Best of the Best?

Each of the personal finance blogs listed below stands for one or more of the following principles…

------Continues after Ad--------

Frugality. I tend to write more about increasing income than cutting expenses, but I’m always on the lookout for new ways to save money.  Some blogs write almost exclusively about living the frugal lifestyle while others sprinkle it in with many other personal finance topics, such as…

Investing.  Saving money is great but to me you have to get your money working for you if you really want to build wealth.  I love reading about different investment ideas, especially when it comes to stocks that pay dividends.  Dividend investing is part of my master plan to quit my day job and focus on passive income streams.  The other key to that plan is…

Entrepreneurship.  Some people are perfectly happy being an employee and earning a steady paycheck and there’s nothing wrong with that.  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.

    Wow! Awesome list, there’s some here I haven’t seen yet. I always found my blog roll would get out of control each time I tried to update. So many great PF blogs out there.

  2. says

    Hi Mike – From one New Jerseyite to another! (OK, I’m in Georgia these days, but ya’ know…) I’m humbled that my site is included on your list, especially since I devote most of my time to writing for other sites! I’ll have to do a similar list and return the favor.

  3. says

    Great list! Sad the SALT Blog didn’t make the cut, but that won’t stop us from sharing this link out with our readers! Appreciate good work, regardless.

  4. says

    From yet another Jersey blogger: Thank you for including me.
    (Okay, so I live in Alaska now. I was born in New Jersey and lived there for the first 18 years of my life, and then off and on until age 26.)

  5. says

    Hi Mike, I just now had the pleasure of reading your list. I’m a little late to the game, but better late than never! I appreciate the time it must have taken you to put something like this together. I also run a personal finance blog at Sweet Little Treats (www.sweet-little-treats.com) where I talk about budgeting and my journey to pay off my debt. Hopefully you like what you see and consider me next time. :)
