Young Adult Money – Started by David Carlson in 2012 – “We’ve grown into something much larger than a one-person blog. We have a team that puts providing value to our community above everything else. Content is curated by our team of writers, each with their own unique views and perspectives.”

Dear Debt Blog – “My name is Melanie and I started this blog in January 2013 to keep myself accountable in the debt payoff process. I paid off a total of $81,000 in student loan debt.”

Budget and the Beach – “I’m a video editor and blogger living by the beach in LA, and have great friends, a healthy, active lifestyle, a cat I adore, and overall pretty great life!  I started this blog in May 2012, after a very rocky start as a freelancer, and after I hit my financial rock bottom in February 2012.”

Financially Blonde – “If this is your first time visiting Financially Blonde, I thought I would highlight a few posts that you would not only find helpful, but would give you a better understanding about me. I started this blog in late 2013 when I started my financial planning company, The Financial Gym.”

Life and My Finances – “I want to help you develop a plan for your cash flow. I want to help you get out of debt. I want to help you beef up your emergency fund. I want to help you invest in your future.”

Debt Discipline – “We started our debt free journey with LOTS of consumer debt. About as much as our gross income. Yep, we screwed up…..BIG TIME.”

Budgets are Sexy – “While I *thought* I was The Man when it came to money, I really didn’t get my act together until we bought our first home in 2007 for over $350,000. On a whim, and when we were looking to rent (what the hell was wrong with us??). Needless to say it was a much needed wake-up call.”

The Latte Budget – “This blog is different than many because I believe in flexible budgeting and not depriving myself of life. So many people have impressive get out of debt stories because they deprived themselves for many years of everything! While this is one way to do it, I did not want to sacrifice my early 20’s years to doing so.”

Distilled Dollar – “Distilled Dollar is the story of how we went from living paycheck-to-paycheck to building wealth. I’m a Chicago based CPA and with my fiancée’s help, I’m distilling down $$$ topics in pursuit of financial independence by the age of 35.

The truth is, we don’t need to have a high IQ to become financially independent, we only need to avoid really stupid mistakes.”

Think Save Retire – “My wife and I live in an Airstream RV and plan to retire the end of 2016 from full-time work at the ages of 35 and 31 and travel the country.”

Everything Finance – “Our experienced team has been providing valuable personal finance resources since 2007 covering every topic imaginable including investing, saving money, shopping, making extra money, blogging, traveling, parenting, and working online.”

My Words and Stuff – “I started this site to try to hold myself accountable for my financial future and to share my experiences with anyone who might be interested.  I think I’m probably like most of you and have no formal education in finances. I came out of high school supposedly prepared for the real world, but I didn’t even know how to do my own taxes or know how income tax worked even though I received dozens of pay cheques by this point.”

Len Penzo dot Com – “I started this little ol’ blog in December 2008. Since then, it has garnered almost 9 million page views and more than 4 million unique visitors!

I’ve always had a strong disdain for debt, and so I’ve been practicing sound personal finance management since I graduated from high school many years ago. Using money I saved working as a teenager and throughout college, I was able to fully pay for my own education, room, and board, without the benefit of any loans.”

JLCOLLINSNH: The Simple Path to Wealth – “Hey, glad you showed up! Around here we discuss: Money – Life – Travel – Business. Almost anything can fit if it captures my imagination and I think you might be interested. The blog is best known for the Stock Series. If you are wondering whether to dive in, this independent review might help. I think it captures blog’s essence perfectly.”

The Micawber Principle – Brent Esplin: “Several years ago we were in a difficult financial situation.  I had quit my job to go back to school and get a master’s degree in accounting.  Then, 3 years after graduating I found myself unemployed for over 6 months. I obtained a new job with good long-term prospects, but starting out I was barely making enough to provide necessities, make the mortgage, and pay my student loans.”

Smart Money Nation – “. . . At the end of that year, I decided to rethink things. I needed to learn how money worked, so that I could eventually escape the rat race and not have to work myself to death every month. I still wanted to do things like teaching and coaching, but without the worry and stress about how I was going to pay the bills and eat.

The trouble was, I knew next to nothing…”

Monetary Musings – “Hey there – I’m Kudy. I’m hell bent on living below my means and saving my income to gain financial freedom. I also strive to live a balanced and simple life with a lack of typical American consumption and indebtedness.

On this blog, you will find my musings about financial independence and early retirement (FIRE). I’m certainly not a financial guru, so don’t expect excessive amounts of sage advice or too many life-changing articles – instead, I will write most frequently about my own trials and triumphs as I find happiness and wealth in this short life.”

Teacher Investor – “Hi. Teacher. Parent. Musician. Personal Finance Blogger! Early retiree hopeful. TEACHER~investor is here to help you with all things personal finance.  Here you’ll learn about things not taught in schools (forgive the metaphor) ~ like how to effectively manage your money, save, and invest.  To help you live (and retire) well.”

Passive Income M.D. – ” In case you’re wondering, I’m an anesthesiologist living on the West Coast, trying to make it in one of the most expensive cities in the world. I’m also the guy who will pretty much try anything if I think it will make a positive impact on my life.”

“This blog will serve as a personal documentation of my journey to find ways to achieve passive income, which will ultimately allow me to spend more time with loved ones.”

From Cents to Retirement – Welcome to my blog, which is, in fact, a cash flow blog, which presents monthly blog income reports, cash flow from my investments including Real Estate investments (turn key rental and active investments), my net worth, blogging and SEO tips, and a heck of a lot more. If your intention is to quit your day job and have more time to enjoy life, doing the things you love, this is the right spot for you… early retirement is the key and that is what I am working on!

Your Average Dough – “Hi everyone! My name is Courtney and I run Your Average Dough. I decided to start this blog to share my thoughts on various financial topics. The goal here is to just share thoughts and advice based on personal experience and research with the average Joe who is striving for a better financial life (this is a continuing journey for all of us).”

Chief Mom Officer – Money. Work. Life. That’s what I write about here on Chief Mom Officer. I’m a breadwinning mom to three wonderful active boys (13, 9, and 1 1/2), with a stay at home husband. I’ve risen from community college and a $22k per year to a six figure earning MBA, working in IT for a large company. Personal finance has been my hobby since I was a teenager and am a die-hard Boglehead.

Family Money Plan – “I am here to help you overcome the challenges of managing your money. By taking control of your money it will help you create a better future.

I know what it is like to feel a lack of control when it comes to money. I felt lost, frustrated, and confused. All I wanted was to remove the uncertainty of how to manage my money. I was always doubting myself and my abilities. I felt like I had no clue what to do. I felt like I was drowning.”

Rags to Niche$ – “Hi, I’m Nat!  Wife, mother, blogger, writer, and runner. You’re in the right place if you’d like to – make & save money online, start a niche blog/website, or learn about affiliate marketing.”

Amanda Page – “I’m Amanda, formerly known across the Internet as Dream Beyond Debt. I’m a humanities professor by day and a personal finance blogger by night. I paid off $48,000 of student loan debt in 14 months and it changed my life. Don’t let debt delay your creative life. Pay it off and pursue your dreams.”

FM Flipper – “Do you love going to flea markets, yard sales, and thrift stores? Would you like to turn that passion into an income? Do you already make a side income by flipping used items but want to step it up to the next level?

If you answered yes to any one of those questions then make yourself at home. Our family would get along great with you because this is who we are and what we do (and what we have been doing for 20 years now!)

Financial Panther – “I like to think that I’m your typical millennial for the most part. I graduated college in May of 2009 – right in the midst of the financial crisis. Naturally, it wasn’t a great time to be finishing school. Finding myself underemployed, I did the thing almost everyone does when they have no clue what to do…I headed off to law school. And like most law students, I ended up taking out a bunch of student loans in order to do it. $87,000 worth to be exact.”

The College Investor – “The College Investor is designed to be the #1 tool to help you get out of student loan debt, learn how to earn more money, understand how to start investing, all so you can build real wealth.”

Daily Successful Living – “My name is Amy Esplin White.  This blog began as an experiment for work.  I quickly discovered that I loved writing, researching and sharing knowledge, so I kept right on writing.

My goal is to provide worthwhile content related to personal finance, parenting and all the fun stuff in my life.”

My Family on a Budget – “I’m so happy you dropped by here at my personal finance website. I try to write personal finance stories going through life with 2 girls. I aim to inspire, motivate, and educate while laughing along the way beating debt and building wealth.

Personal finance has been a passion of mine since my wife and I took Financial Peace University back in August 2011. You can read our entire story here. Since then, we’ve paid off all of our debt other than our home mortgage, totaling over $27,000 over 2 years. We’ve continued to work the FPU baby steps and now have a fully funded emergency fund as well as are actively investing.”

Enrichmentality – “Enrichmentality is about enriching your life and your future through enriching the way you think – and speak – about money.”

My earliest memory concerning money is of burying a $2 coin in the hope it would grow into a money tree.

When this speculation failed to pay off, and I was unable to recover my capital, no amount of begging my parents resulted in a bailout. This experiment taught me a valuable lesson in pure risk and personal responsibility.”
