Below is a list of the blogs that I read regularly and can recommend highly! If you are new to reading blogs, I recommend getting some sort of feed reader, so you don't have to check each blog manually for new posts. I use Feedly, which gives me simple lists of (categorized) blogs, also as a mobile app.
- Bitches Get Riches - two hilarious ladies who write in a unique and informative way - maybe my current favorite blog.
- Financial Samurai - this SF-based blogger enjoys provoking his readers with various tables and how-much-should-you-have numbers.
- jlcollinshn - I learned a lot from the Stock Series of this blog when I was first discovering my interest in personal finances.
- Mr. Money Moustache - as is the case for many bloggers, I stumbled across this blog when first Googling how much of my income I should save, and introduced me to the possibility of FIRE and sparked my interest in finance blogs!
- Our Next Life - fresh takes on retiring early from two recent "retirees" in California
- The Power of Thrift - a funny, self deprecating, and honest blog about retiring early
- Visual Capitalist - not strictly personal finance, but I always learn something from their fascinating infographics
- Cheesy Finance - active blogger in NL who writes in English. Some of the older posts helped me quite a bit when I first moved to NL!
- Geldnerd.nl - another active blogger in NL who is quite relatable to my current situation (and also makes/shares nerdy spreadsheets!)
- in-deed-a-bly - just discovered this one recently! a London-based beautiful and well-written site with a unique and creative approach
- Project Lonica - millenial who recently quit her busy job in Amsterdam and bought a house in a remote part of Northern Spain!
- Amber Tree Leaves - not so active anymore, but I followed this Belgian blogger for a while!
- Spaarolifantje - not so active anymore, but I enjoy reading this Dutch perspective blog
- What Life Could Be - a couple who previously lived in NL but recently moved to Romania to live the FIRE life
If you have any additional recommendations, I'd love to hear them - especially blogs with some sort of expat experience. I've followed many other blogs in the past. However, I get a bit annoyed when they start feeling overly commercialized. There are some other blogs I used to read, which I've now removed from my feed, as they just seem to have obnoxious click-baity titles and offer little new/interesting perspectives or information.
