Here is where I start typing out incredibly intelligent financial advice and save you from making blunders with your income. Yea, that’s what I am supposed to be typing here. Instead, I am dumbfounded for what suggestions to blog about today so I am copping out and giving you links to some of the best financial websites/blogs I have come across. Enjoy my lackluster effort today folks!
- Mint.com - First, I must state that this is also a blog too, but their main platform is their application. I have really enjoyed using their simple program which they claim is ‘The best free way to manage your money.” Honestly, I think the best way to manage your money is to stop thinking like most Americans (yes, I am American too) and keep a budget in tact. That’s truly the easiest, free way. But, as we know, most of us Americans need a computer to tell us what to do. And Mint’s program does it wonderfully.
- DaveRamsey.com – I usually hate websites that claim to be financial saviors. On top of that, Dave Ramsey’s website looks like every other financial wannabe unfortunately. However, I have read Total Money Makeover, his book, and it is eye-opening. He is the only show I watch on FAUX News. He really seems to care what happens to us which is reassuring. It doesn’t feel like he is trying to rip me off which is hard to find. He is simple, to-the-point, and relates well.
- Money.com – I am not the biggest fan of CNN and this site is a branch of them, but they do provide great news updates along with some credible sources. As long as I don’t have to read anything posted by their anchors, this site is great news for me.
- Yahoo.com/finance - Yahoo Finance was more reliable to me for my financial news than most other financial websites that only did finances. Yahoo is great for up to the minute info and stock updates. I used Yahoo Finance more than my own brokerage firm’s website.
- EnemyofDebt.com – Great site for those looking to battle the debt monster. Brad Chaffee uses sources from many fields to create his in-depth articles. If you need motivation to battle debt, check out Enemy of Debt every few days to stay motivated.
- ManvsDebt.com – Adam Baker is your average guy just trying to make it in this world and live life on his own terms. Along with doing that, he blogs about his battles to live life and manage/eliminate debt. He is currently being featured on GetRichSlowly.org. Baker has a family that he is traveling through Aussie and New Zealand right now. Hearing his stories of balancing a family and a new lifestyle in a new country are great.
- GetRichSlowly.org – Speak of the devil. Okay, maybe not the devil, but a very informative site with top guest posts and a huge following. If you are trying to get great resources and are patient on creating a stable financial life, follow Get Rich Slowly is a wise idea.
- ZenHabits.net – No doubt, this is a cop out on my part. Leo barely ever discusses finances, but he does discuss lifestyles of minimalism and how to achieve such. I know he isn’t going to pick the lucky stock for you. But he will get you to change your lifestyle to one that doesn’t view money as the end all be all.
- StretchyDollar.com – If you are looking for a humorous outlook on finances or the world around finances, check out Stretchy Dollar. With some great sympathetic but hilarious posts, financial blog reading can be interesting.
- LifeExcursion.com/Finance – How can I mention my own site? Because whenever I start to fade from what I preach, I read my old blogs and slap myself for not listening to my own teachings. I usually wake up and get back on track. Hopefully, I can do the same for you.
Last Minute Edition: Moneyaisle.com – Just got this site link from Nancy Pepler. Checked out and a great way to get great rates on CD’s and savings accounts.
