FAQ - Which personal finance blogs do you read? ๐Ÿ‘€

Hereโ€™s a list of the blogs / communities around the web where I spend time reading and learning about personal finance:

Tier 1 (visited daily)-

  • Seeking Alpha - While I donโ€™t often invest in individual stocks, I thoroughly enjoy reading the Wall Street analysis of both the technology sector and global market activity.

  • r/financialindependence - One of the best communities Iโ€™ve found so far. A very candid group of well-wishers. Frequented by lots of startup folks who have been through the gauntlet a few times.

  • r/personalfinance - A welcoming community useful for getting started on the pf journey. Less helpful for deep dives into specific topics like early retirement.

Tier 2 (visited weekly)-

  • jlcollinsnh - A blog on investing and financial health. Also home to my favorite investment primer of all time.

  • Retire by 40 - Family-focused musings from an ex-Intel engineer who retired at 38 in the Pacific Northwest.

  • Financial Samurai - Writing from a former financial professional who retired after thirteen years of work. Refreshingly matter-of-fact around what it takes to achieve financial success in the Bay Area / other high COL areas like NYC. A proponent of stealth wealth.

Tier 3 (mostly corporate blogs; visited occasionally)-

  • Personal Capital Blog - the blog from the team behind the popular financial management app. Great mix of guests posts and original content (infographics, etc.).
