It’s been a while now since we first posted our list of Australian personal finance blogs and we have noticed quite an increase in newer bloggers popping up (hi there!). So we thought we would add our new blogger comrades to that master list and give them a shout out in a post as well – we love that the Aussie finance blogosphere is growing!
So without further ado, here they are (feel free to pop over and give them some love):
FIRE By Thirty-Five – Or “LadyFIRE” is determined to be financially independent and retire early at 35 – as the name suggests! Her main jam is investing in property and already has her own home and an investment property, paying off 2 mortgages in her mid-20s.
The Wealthy Bogan – He is aiming to FIRE at the age of 30 and is currently in his mid-20s, that’s some determination! He lives in Adelaide and works for an average income, saving hard on building his stealth wealth to reach that elusive FIRE.
Buy Hold Long – Caleb is in his mid-20s and also on the FIRE path. He started investing in October 2016 and is a big believer in long-term buy and hold stocks, especially looking for bargains or little-known stocks with big potential.
Financial Farmers – Are a couple in their 30s with one child living in NSW. They are all about reaching financial freedom at the age of 40 and living a sustainable lifestyle, with 4 chickens, an active vegetable garden and a dream to one day own a farm of their own.
Makin Cents – Loves to share general financial tips, such as how to improve your fuel economy, the great thing is that it’s completely from an Australian perspective, which means you get Australia-specific tips!
The FI Explorer – Is in his 40s and aiming for FIRE in 2021. He is sharing his journey, what he learns and portfolio updates along the way and loves the idea of connecting with like-minded people on the same path.
Slack Investor – Is all about investing for the best returns with the least amount of effort and keeping his blog updated with how he does it. With 30+ years of investing experience under his belt, he invests in Australian stocks but also enjoys international diversification by investing in the USA and UK.
All About Balance – Is a Sydney-sider with a philosophy of making simple changes for maximum results and, of course, bringing balance to life. She aims to blog weekly, sharing the journey and tips along the way.
We look forward to following along with our new Aussie brethren’s journeys, we are especially excited by how many are on the path towards FIRE! We hope it’s ok that we’ve included you all on our list and hope we can send a little bit of internet love/readers your way.
