The Best Personal Finance Blogs for Women
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Personal Finance
WalletHub users voted in 2016 for their favorite personal finance blogs.
By far this was their favorite, which is actually for 20something couples:
As the Cash Cow Couple, we know very little about cows, but we know quite a bit about money. As you may have guessed, this blog is written by a couple. To be more specific, a 20’s couple who happen to love a good deal almost as much as they love each other. We are on a mission to achieve financial independence while maintaining a healthy, happy life. We got married at roughly the same time that we each graduated with a bachelor’s degree. To celebrate marriage and our new careers, we didn’t upgrade our vehicles, buy a big house, or a new wardrobe. We sold everything that we didn’t need, including our second car. We used that money, and our paychecks, to pay off our student loans and begin building a secure financial future. Through hard work and a very high savings rate, we paid off roughly $25,000 in student loans and increased our net worth by more than $50,000 in our first year of marriage. That growth has continued upward each year. We share our story to encourage readers. If we did it, so can you. You can get out of debt, save for retirement, and provide for your family without worrying about the monthly paycheck.
Ramit Sethi's blog is number 10.
I am specifically looking for more personal finance blogs by women for women.
Will add more to this page as I find them, starting with ones I find on that WalletHub page.
what prompted this goal? I wonder how much gender plays a role in finance?
From what I've read, seems like there is not enough financial advice for women.
Also seems like men and women approach financial goals differently.
WalletHub 6 and 7 are written by women.
Hello and welcome to my personal finance and lifestyle blog! I created this blog in order to help me improve my finances (one example – due to this, I was able to pay off $38,000 in student loans in 7 months), keep track of my progress, and to help readers improve their finances along the way. My name is Michelle and I am currently touring North America and living in an RV. I am a young adult who graduated from an expensive private university in May of 2010 with a lot of student loan debt. I graduated from college after 2.5 years with two undergraduate business degrees, honors, and around $20,000 worth of student loan debt. I then graduated again in August of 2012 with my Finance MBA with even more student loan debt. With my master’s degree included, I had around $38,000 altogether when I graduated (these are now all paid off). My student loan debt was a big reason for why I started this blog. Anyway, I used to work in the financial services industry as a financial analyst, but now I am fully self-employed as an online freelancer and serial solopreneur. I publish monthly income updates where I discuss how I earn over $20,000 a month online.
WalletHub 7 is specifically for women.
DailyWorth is every woman's guide to money, career, and business. Our goal is that all women see money not as a source of stress and anxiety, but as one of freedom and empowerment. Investing doesn't have to be complicated. Saving is not selfish. And spending doesn’t have to be accompanied by guilt. That's DailyWorth's promise. Before DailyWorth, financial media meant stocks, bonds, retirement, and interest rates, bundled together with jargon and an unrealistic sense of how all this “advice” would apply to your life. We take a broader approach to your money — exploring all areas of career, ambition, identity, relationships, and future security. We make money accessible by putting it in context and bringing you expert opinions from a variety of voices — from certified financial planners to money coaches to women who just lived through it. We’re here to keep it simple and tell it like it is.
