My goal at stopbeingdumb.net is to help you manage your financial situation. I don’t want you to budget yourself to death. I don’t want you to cut every single expense out of your life. I don’t want you to start a business and become a millionaire. If you want to do those things, please do them. I want to help you do what you want to do. I only want you to stop being dumb.

If you’ve read any of my stuff, you’ve already realized that I’m not a genius. I’m not an expert. I’m a novice at best. I’m really just a guy, a regular guy, trying to figure it all out. I don’t have all the answers, I don’t even have all the questions. But, I do want to learn. I want to find the best information available and apply it to my life.
So, without further ado, here is my list of the best financial blogs on the internet today:
A little ado
Wait, here’s a little ado, I should offer some disclosure. These bloggers are not friends of mine, they are in no way affiliated with me. They didn’t pay me to write any of this. These are not advertisements.
This entire list was put together by me, alone. These are the blogs that I read. I find them helpful. I want you to search through them if you need something you can’t find on my blog.
One last thing, these blogs are in no specific order.
Author Ramit Sethi writes one of the most powerful blogs on the planet. He’s a NYT Best Seller and a world-class speaker, teacher, and writer. His blog is about personal finance, but it’s also about living a better life.
Bobby was a high school teacher/band director in 2011 and had $40K in debt. He decided he would pay that debt off in 2 years and HE DID IT. His articles are great. His advice is amazing.
Lifehack is about more than just money. They have articles on productivity, relationships, communication, psychology, and basically everything else you would want to read. They post content from around the world and have hundreds of contributors.
Kelan and Brittany are a millennial couple blogging about budgeting, frugal living, a healthy lifestyle, and their relationship. Their articles are very informative and motivational. I highly recommend them (they featured me once: Jeff on thesavvycouple.com
JD Roth has been writing for years. He started 10 years ago in financial ruin and now he runs his own company and is worth over 1 million dollars. He’s got a great voice and a great story. He’s also a traveler and a full-time blogger.
Those are a few of my favorites.
Here are some of the other blogs that I’ve enjoyed recently.
What’s the point?
I want you to live a life of smart financial decisions. I’m not the smartest guy in the world. Knowing this makes me smarter than most. I strongly encourage you to read and absorb as much as possible about living the life you want to live.
The keys to making smart financial decisions is knowledge. None of us have it all, but collectively, we know everything. Let’s use each other, make each other better, and stop being dumb.
If you made it this far, I appreciate you. I know I left out some amazing blogs. If you write one, contribute to one, or read one that’s not on this list please add it in the comments below!
