There are right now over 1 billion websites in the world. In terms of blog posts, there are over 2 million published on the internet every day. Today more than ever, it’s easy to build a website from scratch. On the other hand is really hard to cut through the clutter and read only the best content. There is too much information just floating around.
On the same token, there is today over 3.74 billion internet users. That’s nearly half of the population. In 2016 they were 3.26 billion. So I think it’s useful for so many if we all share great websites and great bloggers. That way we can all learn from the best.
What I’m proposing today is to highlight the best FIRE (Financial Independence and Retire Early) and Personal Finance blogs out there. Let me know what you think in the comment section.
“To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity.” – Douglas Adams
The FIRE community is an amazing group of individuals that want to retire early and to achieve financial freedom. All kind of strategies are showed by fellow bloggers such as:
- How to change our mindset
- Build new sources of income
- Embrace frugality
- Be more efficient with your investments
- How to save more
So here are some of the BEST FIRE bloggers:
Mr. Money Mustache. Mr. Money Mustache is a thirtysomething retiree who writes about frugality and early retirement since 2011. It’s one of the main references in the FIRE world. It has been featured in publications such as The Washington Post, Forbes, CNNMoney and so on.
