It’s hard to find good blogs. A lot seem to have started to throw up their podcast episodes as blog posts. I prefer good, well-written, well thought out blog posts.
Here are the blogs I read the most often:
Mr. Money Mustache
The author of this blog retired in his thirties after saving and investing a high percentage of his income. Now he spends most of his time writing and doing construction projects.
I like his blog because of his unique, seemingly rational perspective on money. He believes the goal of life isn’t to keep accumulating more money to buy more stuff. The author advocates living frugally, saving, investing, and getting to the point financially in which you no longer have to work.
My only complaint is I wish he would publish more often!
Another personal finance blog, Financial Samurai talks more about general personal finance topics like investing and the stock marketing.
I don’t agree with some of his preferred investment choices such as real estate and overpriced stocks, but I appreciate his perspective and writing. He too mostly retired in his thirties after working in finance.
Bakadesuyo (Barking Up the Wrong Tree)
The author of this blog writes compelling posts mostly summarizing the ideas from books written by others. I like the style of the posts as they are easy to read and he does an amazing job summarizing the key ideas throughout.
He mostly focuses on happiness and self-development.
What Else I Read
I mostly read physical (paperback/hardcover) books. My goal is to read 100 pages per day. About 80% of my reading is non-fiction books primarily on finance, marketing, and self-development.
Before we moved, I was reading the physical Wall Street Journal newspaper. Once we’re settled into our new house, I plan to resume that habit. I find I read a lot more when reading a physical newspaper versus online news.
