2. The Extra Income Project
I'm excited to watch this blog, because it is only a few weeks older than So Not Niche. It's great to learn lessons from the "big kids" who are years ahead, but its also refreshing to locate sites that are close in age your own, especially when the author is in a similar situation.

8. Budgets Are Sexy
Does anyone writing about money and not know J. Money? He is quite possibly one of the coolest people on the web, and one of the only people in the world that can make personal finance seem more fun than a party.
His site has literally everything you ever wanted to read about finances, from "what-if" situations to true stories, from frugal living tips to stock market advice.
Oh, and he is also hilarious. You can also find more of his posts on Rockstar Finance.
Just check out this post:How to Make Money More Interesting (Teaching financial education in schools.)
A personal finance site written by a physicist? Hey, it sorta makes sense. Money is constantly in motion, right?
This is a "heavy" money blog. By that I mean he uses writes about stock trading, investing, global economics, health insurance, legal matters, politics etc.
If you want to go deeper than a savings account, he has you covered. He is also pretty witty (just check out that tongue-in-cheek blog name), so you won't fall asleep reading any of his posts.

Abigail writes about frugal living from a different perspective. She faces a lot more obstacles than many of us, yet she is always super-busy at side-hustles and her blog is a great place to pick up some real person advice.

11. Get Rich Slowly
This is one of the big kids of the PF world. Get Rich Slowly went from being a one-writer show to using multiple staff-writers. If there is a personal finance topic on your mind, this site is sure to have it covered somewhere.

12. The Busy Budgeter
This blog actually focuses on some real world problems that people on budgets have to live with. I like how she sums it up on her about page by saying (paraphrased) "We don't need expensive closet makeovers, we need cheap closet organization solutions."
Yep. Some of us are those people, and this blog is comfortable to read because of that mentality.

13. The Millennial Money Man
This blog focuses a lot on a big issue--student loan debt. Although that is something I managed to avoid, I see plenty of my peers still struggling with the payments while trying to raise families, own homes, and work way too many hours just to afford groceries.
And usually they never get the jobs those expensive diplomas promised them.
The Millennial Money Man talks about the author's own duel with debt, and how he paid it off on a moderate salary in a short time. Definitely some inspiration there for anyone in the same boat!
