The 47 Best Personal Finance Blogs of 2021

I created my list of the 25 best personal finance blogs in 2018. The list grows every year as I discover other blogs along the way. It now includes 45 top personal finance blogs. Collectively, these blogs cover most, if not all, areas that make up personal finance.

You will find articles on banking, investing, retirement, estate planning, insurance, mortgages, budgeting, saving, and much more. All of these winning blogs provide detailed analysis and reviews of the topics they cover. 

The Physician on Fire is one of the best personal finance writers out there. I have my issues with some of the physician bloggers out and their attitude toward financial advisors. One of the many things I like and respect about PoF is his approach toward advice. He has a strong opinion about how they should be compensated and offers a list of advisors that meet that criteria. That's a refreshing difference in the blogosphere.

There's a Millionaire Interview series in which ESI interviews successful people who, as the name suggest, are millionaires. The interview questions revolve around the three main themes. The ways people get to their definition of wealth and financial independence vary yet are similar. You wee that in the interviews.
