Blogs I like

My entrance into the blogosphere has been via personal finance and financial independence (FI) blogs. One of the first blogs I read was Mr. Money Mustache. I started reading a few of his articles, then started to devour the content. Then I found more FI blogs, and let my magazine subscriptions expire.

My top ten favorite blogs:
  1. Root of Good. Justin has great articles about personal finance and frugal living. Favorite post: $150,000 Income, $150 Income Tax”. Who knew some people could contribute to a 403b and a 457? This blog has saved me a lot of money. If only I’d found it sooner.
  1. Mr Money Mustache. A ton of great content on frugality and how to break free from a consumer society. Favorite post: “A Millionaire is Made Ten Bucks at a Time”. Ten bucks IS a lot of money.
  1. Mad FIentist. Detailed articles on strategies to optimize the path to financial independence. Favorite post: “How to Access Retirement Funds Early”. No you don’t have to wait till age 59.5 to access your retirement accounts.
  1. Early Retirement Extreme. Jacob Lund Fisker has a great blog about principles for lifestyle design and achieving financial independence. Favorite post: Here I am going to diverge a bit and say my favorite content is the first chapter of his book “Early Retirement Extreme” which can be previewed on Amazon.
