The Top Personal Finance Blog Posts of 2016… So Far

2016 So Far

People ask regularly why we do what we do. Why we create content and especially why we share posts that feature the top personal finance blog posts, and the simple answer is this: we want everyone to be free from financial enslavement. We believe that for every person there is a message that will connect, one of inspiration or logic, one of motivation or a good story. We know we cannot make that connection with every persons, so we call on our awesome personal finance community to help spread that message. We hope that you can connect with at least one of the articles below and it helps you free yourself from financial slavery like we did when we paid off $51k in credit card debt.

That being said, here we are over half way through 2016. How are you doing on those New Year Resolutions to get out of debt, make more money, lose weight, spend more time with the family? “Meh,” you say? Well, there is still time left in 2016, so let’s get on it! At least the finance related side.

As with the 2015 post, I’ve chatted up some of the top personal finance bloggers and asked them what’s been some of their best work. What’s inspired them and others? What’s made a difference in their follower’s lives? Who’s succeeding in 2016 so far and what can we learn from them?

The results are in and below are the 42 top personal finance blog posts of 2016 to date. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have. Find value in what you’ve read? Remember to like and share the content. We all want 2016 to be an awesome year, so let’s round it out on an uptick.
