Personal Finance


by Kevin Schoon September 3, 2017

When it comes to personal finance there’s more than one way to skin a cat. That is what makes everyone’s journey to financial freedom so unique. While there are common themes, some experiences can’t be duplicated. That is the beauty of personal finance blogs. What I enjoy most is reading the different perspectives of how authors approached their financial hurdles as told through their eyes. It’s like an unspoken fraternity of frugal minds looking to empower the world one cent at a time. This very reason is why it can be daunting to find personal finance blogs you might like. There are so many out there. So many viewpoints, so many methods, and so much knowledge. The goal of this post is to aid in that search. Here are 5 awesome blog post you should read.

  1. Frugal Asian Finance

    I first heard about this blog while listening to Pete McPherson’s “Do You Even Blog?” podcast (Great podcast btw). I like this blog because it provides a fresh perspective of personal finance through Asian culture. Ms. FAF conveys a joyful light personality as well as her own humility through her blog posts. This is shown in her moniker. (Check out her “Frugal Wins and Losses” section here.) She also doesn’t resist pushing here culture to the forefront. Her willingness to provide exposure to other Asian PF bloggers makes her blog that much more admirable.  You’ll leave her blog feeling like you’ve gotten some great friendly advice. This draws the reader in, creating a no pressure tone. I recommend this blog site if you’re looking for a light read on a Saturday morning.  VISIT FRUGAL ASIAN FINANCE HERE

  2. The Frugal Gene 

    Similar to Ms. FAF, Lily of “The Frugal Gene” is another vibrant light-hearted PF blogger. Ironically I came across her blog the same way I did Ms. FAF’s. They were actually being interviewed together!! Lily provides great practical methods of getting out of debt. Getting out of 20,000 student loan debt herself, Lily isn’t just theory. This is a breath of fresh air as some personal finance blogs can sound like regurgitation rather than actual experience. I recommend this blog because Lily provides the millennial optimism which is needed when conquering financial hurdles. The “if I can, do it you can too” tone to her post makes this blog one to be followed. VISIT THE FRUGAL GENE HERE

  3. Your Average Dough

    A play on the phrase “your average Joe”, Your Average Dough is uncommon knowledge for the common man. Courtney’s provides simple DIY methods to adding more dollars to your bank account. An accountant herself, it’s no surprise why Courtney has a fascination with budgets (Read more here). It’s all about planning. I recommend this blog I you are looking to develop new money-saving habits and don’t know where to start.  VISIT YOUR AVERAGE JOE HERE

Personal finance can be intimidating and daunting. With so much data available, where do you start? Visiting these blog post should began to point you in the right direction. Don’t take every word for gospel. Everything isn’t meant for everyone. Learn what works for you an apply it. If done consistently, you’ll began to see results right away.
