Do you have any favorite personal finance bloggers?
As a personal finance (and health) blogger myself, I have quite a few that I look to for inspiration and knowledge of the subject. After all, I realize I have so much more to learn. I consider myself a constant student of the subject.
Also, I enjoy commenting on various blogs and having a chance to engage people. It’s a great way to learn from each other as well as get Run The Money a little exposure.
I thought I’d share with all of you the personal finance bloggers that I follow. What’s fun about the blogging world is everyone has a different voice and perspective. So, it’s interesting to see the view each blogger takes on all matters personal finance.
Check out my list below and compare it with the personal finance bloggers you check in with on a regular basis. Let me know more about who you follow in the comments

At Making Sense of Cents, Michelle offers advice on everything from how to get (and stay) out of debt and make more money to travel tips. She’s making a full-time income (and then some) on her blog and travels the country in an RV with her husband.
You also need to get on Facebook and join Michelle’s Making Sense of Cents Community group. It’s free to join. Plus, she is very active in the group and there are many folks asking the key questions to better their personal finance situation. It’s a go-to place for money advice – and she even addresses some of the issues in her posts.
Where personal finance nerds are cool. That’s the tagline for Budgets Are Sexy. With his wit and knowledge, J. Money provides readers with education on a variety of topics, including side hustles and early retirement.
J. Money has also put together a fine resource with Rockstar Finance. Need a personal finance blog covering any age group? That’s your place.
You can essentially set yourself up with knowledge of the money matters people encounter at every stage in life. Great directory, article recommendations, and message boards.
Rather than go into a long introduction on Rob, let me just saw one thing. The guy paid off his house by the time he was in his 30’s. He’s well on his way to living the FIRE lifestyle.
If you want to get a crash course in practical financial advice, read this blog. He just knows what he’s talking about.
Rob is also a trained instructor with Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University. On top of that, he’s just a flat out personal finance nerd (like me) and loves talking shop.
Whatever you need to budget for – whether it be food, items for the family, or DIY projects – Rosemarie has you covered. Plus, her 90-Day Budget Bootcamp Challenge will definitely whip your finances into shape!
In a previous life, Bobby was a teacher who decided he wanted more out of life. He decided to blog about climbing out of $40,000 in student loan debt – on a teacher’s salary! – and the rest is history as they say.
Make sure to join Bobby’s Facebook page. Like Michelle’s group, it’s a personal finance goldmine and Bobby is very active there.
All Grant over at Millennial Money did was take $2 and turn it into $1 million in 5 years. Yeah, no big deal! (Note: That’s called sarcasm for you Sheldon Cooper types).
He believes that most of what you hear about money in pop culture is outdated. Therefore, Grant brings us all up to speed on matters of personal finance, investing, and entrepreneurship. Oh, and his interview with John Lee Dumas on Entrepreneur on Fire is required listening for all of you!
What I love about Alexis’s blog at FITnancials is it discusses both money and fitness. Just like Run The Money!
She has some of the best travel and vacation tips in the blogosphere. Before you book your next trip, see what Alexis has to say.
Erik and the guys over at The Mastermind Within really have a knack for making you think. They discuss books they’ve read, mindset hacks, and, of course, personal finance.
If you want a well-rounded blog read, go take a look at The Mastermind Within.
Follow Erik on Twitter.
We all have people and resources we go to for motivation, inspiration, and education. These 8 personal finance bloggers fit that bill for me.
As I said, I can admit that I don’t know everything. So, it’s nice to be able to turn to these individuals to fill in the gaps for me!
