I’m sharing 7 of my favorite money blogs with you. My journey to financial freedom includes some rocky reorganization, financial forests , credit crevices, and some debt detours. The success is the forward movement. You can’t find the Emerald City by sleeping your life away in a field of pretty poppies.
There are so many members of the debt-reduction community who have spectacular stories about how they conquered their own particular demons. I want you to read their blogs and understand that the idea is not to take everything that person says or does and replicate it. Instead, inspect their stories and determine how you can use one (or all) of the tips to help you along your path to financial freedom. This list does not include every money magician out there who has a great story. No one claims to be an expert – they are simply sharing their own experiences so they might be able to help someone else.
4 Money Blog Sites
1. The Paleo Mama. Jackie wanted a farm, and she made it happen. She states that she and her husband didn’t have credit card debt (Yay!), the realization that they had student loans and other loans that put them approximately $50,000 in debt. That didn’t sit well with her – she wanted more for her family.
2.Mr. Money Moustache. Mr. Money Moustache claims he was able to retire early because he was financially boring. He and his wife worked out of office stalls, living on 50% of their income and investing the rest in index funds and rental property. Despite his home page looking a little sinister, he has solid, no-nonsense advice. And, like me, he believes in happiness first – it starts with that choice.
3.The Penny Hoarder. This site is a lot bigger than Cash Crone, and is packed with information on living a frugal life, using your money wisely, and saving for retirement. It is a great place to start if you haven’t checked out many debt reduction sites. But after you go there, come back here.
4.Jackie Beck. Jackie and her husband talk about paying off $147,000 of debt. Yes. Six figures, people. That’s impressive. Jackie even created an app to help you mange your own budget.
And 3 more…
5.Budgets are Sexy. I love this blog, because “J.Money” stayed true to himself. His blog is vivid and fun, matching his own personal style. He is also the founder of Rockstar Finance, which is also packed with tips and stories from others on how to have an amazing life no matter your circumstances.
6.Get Rich Slowly. This is a popular blog as well. And it has a turtle logo. Seriously, this site hits almost every top ten list on money management. His idea is simple: set goals, pay yourself first, and live below your means.
7. Average Joe Finance. I found Joe’s blog after he started following Cash Crone on Twitter. He’s an accountant by day. His blog is more about being successful than money management, although it certainly does lean in that direction. Joe is a student of life. I like that.
