I’m starting something new this weekend: each week I’m going to try to put together a list of 3-5 great blog posts I’ve read from other personal finance bloggers. These posts are a collection of things I find interesting and thought-provoking, and if you like the content I’m posting I’d encourage you to check out some of the posts in this list.
Lance over at My Strategic Dollar interviewed rockstar frugal freak Lily of The Frugal Gene about her life and how her childhood shaped her financial future. As an immigrant she’s got a fascinating story, and Lily and her husband save over $100,000 each year – and don’t even own a car. Definitely an inspirational read.
Bobby, aka the Millennial Money Man, is a bit of a legend. He quit his job as a high school band teacher a few years back to blog full-time. At the time, his site had made three dollars. Not advisable. But, being in the education realm he’s got some good thoughts on what might happen if we started teaching personal finance classes in our public schooling systems.
Sam, one of the best-known personal finance bloggers around at Financial Samurai, weighs in on marriage and money. He’s got some interesting opinions and it sparked a great series of conversations. Ultimately everybody needs to do what makes sense for themselves and their spouse, but give this a read and check out the comments if you’re curious if what you’re doing is “normal”.
Church posted a rather interesting take on net worth at My Mattress Money this week. Personal finance bloggers all seem to focus on a few metrics like net worth, monthly spending, and passive income. This take on it is a bit doomsdays-y for me, but it’s a fascinating read nonetheless and one that deserves some thought.
That does it for this week!
