I likely won’t update this as often as I’d like and this is far from exhaustive, but here are some blogs that I follow about personal finance. Have a suggestion for a great blog that I’m not reading? Let me know in the comments.
Cash Cow Couple: Jacob and Vanessa are a young couple committed to each other and committed to cutting spending in every way possible while maintaining a healthy, happy life. They are on track to spend less than $12,000 total in their first year of marriage.
Modest Money: Jeremy calls himself an average guy facing an average financial situation, who wants to improve my own personal money management habits and, thankfully, looking to share some of the financial lessons he has learned.
Airline Miles Experts: This is Jeremy’s other site. He describes it as a place where you can “Learn from the airline miles experts how to use your credit card to receive free flights and other travel rewards and take advantage of credit card rewards instead of letting the card issuers take advantage of you.”
The Frugal Farmer: Rick and Laurie are 40-something parents of four young children who left life in suburbia to live on a small hobby farm in the Midwest. Their blog follows along as they learn to be more self-sufficient and reduce their debt load using the life folks lived during the Great Depression as a model.
Your Personal Finance Pro: Harry seeks to make his website one where anybody could come and get free personal financial advice, ask questions and more importantly, learn about personal finance.
The Heavy Purse: Shannon Ryan is a Certified Financial Planner with 20 years of experience who works with her young daughters to help them build a positive relationship with money. She writes about it both on her site and in the four books that make up the Heavy Purse Series.
#BrokeMillennial: Erin calls herself an average millennial, trying to figure out life and survive the financial burden of living in New York City while developing a respectable net worth on a small income.
Budget & the Beach: Tonya lives by the beach and documents her journey in rebuilding her financial future.
Free Money Minute: Free Money Minute was designed to provide answers to personal finance questions quickly and precisely, by delivering bite-sized chunks on various ways to improve a financial situation.
Sunk Costs Are Irrelevant: This blog, named for a short-run business decision-making maxim (or perhaps a euphemism I’m not hip enough to understand), offers a snarky, oftentimes sarcastic, look at the world of personal finance
Suburban Finance: Daisy thinks that everybody needs to start thinking about their financial situation more, and get out of debt already! She’s hoping to help people do just that.
The Money Godmother’s Blog: J.M. Seymour assumes the alter-ego of the Money Godmother to teach and encourage good money management habits. Her role is not to make decisions or tell someone what to do, just to provide insights and perspectives.
Frugaling.org: Somewhere between advice, education, and self-reflection, Frugaling.org aims to provide an empowering message to its readers. Student loans, credit cards, and debt can be complex, terrifying situations. Frugaling.org is here to help.
See Debt Run: Jefferson and Michelle run this site about making the choice to end the nonsense and take control; to simplify your lives, to live within your means, and to get honest with your relationship towards money.

Rockstar Finance: J. Money curates his favorite articles and videos on money across the web and highlights them to inspire and inform everyone.
