Thirty-somethings rejoice – we’ve compiled a list of best personal finance blogs for 30 somethings for you.
Blogging is all the rage these days, and money is one of the most popular niches out there. Why? Because most people, especially 30 somethings, can use all the help they can get in this department. Most thirty-year-olds should have things figured out by now, right? But sadly some are in worse financial straits than ever. Those student loan payments can really get you, not to mention that mortgage and that growing family. How do you possibly juggle it all? Thirty-somethings are a unique breed. Personal finance blogs for 40 somethings and personal finance blogs for 50 somethings might include tips for living retired, paying for your children’s weddings or paying off your mortgage. But most 30 somethings are still dealing with college debt, actually purchasing a home and starting a family.
Thankfully, pages and pages of financial advice for 30-year-olds can be found on the web. Advice from people who have been there. Because, 99% of the time, personal finance bloggers are sharing their journeys from rags to riches. Many of them blog full time, and some have even retired at an unusually early age. Must be nice. But stories like this never fail to be inspiring. They remind us that it is possible to be financially well-off, even as a 30 something, by implementing practical tips in our everyday lives that can change things for the better.
To create our list, we referred to a few lists of personal finance blogs like Wallet Hub’s 2016 Best Personal Finance Blogs, AAA Credit Guide’s Top 50 Personal Finance Blogs of 2017 and Kiplinger’s 10 Personal Finance Blogs Worth Reading. We then plugged these blogs into a platform called Bloglovin’ which is a popular media form for blog readers. Most blogs have Bloglovin’ accounts, where each blog post is shared and followers can like and save their favorites. Under each blog on Bloglovin’ is a number of followers. We ranked only blogs that had over 100 followers, which ensures they are well liked among the public, and rated our blogs based on their number of followers, so the ones with the highest amount of followers can be found towards the end of this list.But before rating by followers, we also scoured each individual blog for things that would appeal to a 30 something.

But before rating by followers, we also scoured each individual blog for things that would appeal to a 30 something. Whether the author mentioned they were a 30 something on their about page, or the content just seemed generally directed to young adults (with a discussion about paying off student loans, retiring early and/or growing a career). We only included blogs whose authors had a fresh voice most young adults could learn from. But keep in mind that not every blog has a presence on Bloglovin’, though most popular ones do. Their number of followers could always change over time as well. And lastly, while most blog writers on this list had some sort of degree or financial background, many of them are just speaking from their own experience. But we can always learn from one another, no matter how many years we’ve attended school.
