Are there any PF blogs, not on your blogroll, that you recommend?
As you note, we read the ones on our blogroll. From miser-mom, one of us reads Planting Our Pennies. From Donna Freedman I’ll often click on Ipickuppennies.
Feral homemaking doesn’t update anymore, but her blogroll is pretty active, so sometimes it’s worth clicking on that. Most of the stuff on her blogroll is about living on a lot less, which really isn’t our thing these days. Standouts include Non-consumer advocate and the frugal girl, which is kind of the opposite of non-consumer advocate in that it often has sponsored posts. I find I really can’t read a lot of the other blogs like I used to because I feel guilty for having so much when some people have so little.
I used to read a bunch of stuff off of femme frugality‘s blogroll, but she got rid of the blogroll so I only rarely catch up on savespendsplurge or budgetandthebeach and similar well-heeled formerly 20-something bloggers. If she still had the blogroll I would probably read more of their posts when the titles were interesting.
Other regular reads include:
A Gai Shan Life, but she’s not solely PF.
nzmuse, similar to a gai shan life in terms of not being solely pf
Occasional reads include:
Afford Anything – she posts about once a month and her posts are really interesting– usually she’s only talking about real estate investing which I have less than zero interest in (like, you would have to pay me a ton to get me to do real estate investing), but despite that, I still find it fascinating.
Leighpf – every post that Leigh does is a gem, but unfortunately for us she’s been posting *less* than once a month. We are grateful that she still comments on other people’s blogs! I’d say she’s the one PF blogger that I still learn things from. I would be interested in knowing what PF blogs *she* finds useful. (Note: sometimes she points out good posts on her twitter feed.)
a windy city gal sometimes posts about finances
solitary diner sometimes posts about finances
stacking pennies updates once or twice a month
retirebyforty doesn’t really have anything for me, but I’m vaguely interested in Joe’s financial life
club thrifty Their posts are mostly PF 101 or travel hacks, so I only stop by occasionally these days.
evolving pf Only posts about once a month now and mostly only life updates.
Financial Sam – I suspect that many of his posts are just trolling, but occasionally I’ll stop by out of morbid curiosity.
yuppiemillennial — She posts somewhat sporadically or I’d read her more regularly instead of waiting for her to comment here. I did read her engineering PF blog regularly but she took it down.
I would read more middleclassrevolution.me formerly oilandgarlic, formerly etc. But either she’s on a hiatus or she’s moved to another blog that I haven’t figure out yet!
Blogs I don’t read often but (I think) are still around:
There are a bunch of bloggers who used to comment on our blog but no longer do. Whenever I stop by out of curiosity, I notice that their posts tend to be PF 101 stuff, so there’s not much incentive to stop by regularly. People who are just starting (probably not Rosa) would probably find them more useful. These include folks like squirrelers, budgeting the fun stuff, step away from the mall, retire by 40, little house, etc. (For all I know some of these may have been sold.)
From time to time I’ll look at frugalwoods, but I dunno, before they moved I started to find the blog to be pretty repetitive and after they moved it became less interesting. When the headline on Mr. Money Moustache is interesting, I’ll read that off Miser mom’s blog roll.
So I really don’t have anything new for you! I bet there’s not a single name up there that you don’t recognize.
But maybe our readers have suggestions?
