10 Favorite Financial Blogs to Follow in 2020 

Blogging is not dead. That’s why we spend so much time on it here on our own site. While social media may have risen the top with short, easy-to-consume bites of information, blogging still gives readers a broader perspective. When it comes to financial blogs and information, sometimes short isn’t sweet. There are several great blogs that we think you should follow to help you hone your own financial outlook. Here are our top picks for 2020.

1. Money Under 30

One of the best online resources for anyone, whether you’re under 30 or over, is Money Under 30. This blog, geared toward the middle millennial, offers insight on debt, savings, loans, and investments. News is updated regularly, and they also have easy-to-use tools to help you find credit cards, start investing, or enhance your savings.

 2. Afford Anything

The tagline for this blog is: “You can afford anything, but not everything.” So true. We make a lot of choices around money every day and some are going to be better than others. Some are essential. Some are luxuries. But the blogger, Paula, shares her own story about cutting expenses to save more money and provides tips, strategies, and philosophies to help you sort out your own priorities.

3. Debt Roundup

Many of us struggle with debt. Whether it’s consumer debt on credit cards or looming student loans, debt is a huge crisis in our country. Debt Roundup gives the tools we can all use to help us round up our debt and work toward our future financial goals. What we love are how practical the tips are, like avoiding fees for exchanging coins, or how to save money over the holidays.

4. The Penny Hoarder

This blog has become a household name, especially as more and more people find themselves a part of the gig economy. While the central message of the blog is financial responsibility, it also has a regular round-up of legitimate ways to make money online. There are other categories to read as well, like debt management and long-term investment. It’s well worth following.

5. My Money Blog

Blogger Jonathan Ping started his money blog in 2004 and has grown it to be his primary business. The site shares updates regularly, specifically about credit cards and money management. Don’t be spooked that his site features affiliate links. You can still use it to do your own research and understand his concepts around money and savings.

6. Budgets are Sexy

We have said it for a long time, we understand that mortgages are not the sexy part about buying a home. It’s sexy to look at real estate listings and walk through homes imagining yourself inside. But we have long wanted to find a way to make mortgages sexy, and we were excited to find a blog about budgets that felt the same way. This personal finance blog is real talk from a real person to help you put things into perspective.

7. Good Financial Cents

We admit, one of the reasons we chose this one is because we love a good pun. But more than just a money pun, this blog provides information that really is good financial sense for readers. He encourages readers to take control over their money and shed some of the inhibitions and even shame many of us have around our financial decisions.

8. Money Girl

On Money Girl, Laura Adams shares what she calls, “quick and dirty tips for your financial health.” We like when complex subjects can be made simple so everyone can get a better feel for the matter at hand. Just a quick glance shows financial blogs and topics as heady as how to recover from identity theft to steps to buying a home you can afford.

9. Girls Just Wanna Have Funds

All right, another punny blog title got us with this one too. But hey, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! Blogger Ginger shares her tips on how money doesn’t have to be hard. She writes on topics like saving, debt, and even career goals to help you make and save more of your own money.

10. Punch Debt in the Face

Another cheeky blog also gives us a chuckle at the name, but in spite of the fun feel they do take financial discussions quite seriously. Much of the way blogger Ninja writes about money is tongue in cheek, but the information is solid as well as fun. The blog started off all about ending debt, but since his own life has evolved, it’s grown to provide details about saving as well.


And Then We Saved

Anna Newell Jones created her blog after she turned her own financial picture around. She took herself out of the pattern of spending and created a system to help other people, especially women, make a pledge to spend less and save more. Her blog is down to earth and relatable so it’s well worth putting on your blog feed.

Debt Free Forties

We started out this blog post with Money Under 30, which we highly recommend for all age groups. We thought it only appropriate to close out with Debt Free Forties. Writer Tana shares effective tips like frugal gift guides and cheap places to eat when you don’t like to cook. Just like Money Under 30, this blog is really great for everyone.
