Exactly one year ago today, I wrote a post about my favorite ladies in the personal finance blogosphere, titled Hot Personal Finance Blogger Chicks. I featured such bloggers as Fabulously Broke, Krystal from Give Me Back My Five Bucks, among other sexy chicks who have great blogs. Go ahead and click back to relive the awkwardness. It’s okay, I’ll wait.
These women are the epitome of sexy, since there’s nothing sexier than having a good financial head on your shoulders. They’re strong enough to voice their opinions in their blogs, even though those opinions may be unpopular. They’re smart enough to realize that living with debt is a bad idea and they’re determined enough to make positive changes in their lives to get themselves on a good financial track. If those qualities aren’t sexy, I don’t know what is.
Other guys must agree with me, because they’re mostly taken. I’ve never met any of those guys and I already hate them.
Like last time, these are listed in no particular order. I love all you ladies equally much. You’re all my favorites!
I had a bit of an (awkward) online fling with Money Rabbit, mostly contained on my first Saturday Morning Dump when I creepily peeked over her fence while she was doing yoga. Even though I definitely weirded her out, she’s still actually nice to me, which is clearly much more than I deserve. She’s working hard at paying down her car debt, as well as saving for both retirement and a trip to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro.
The only thing that takes away from her awesomeness is being vegetarian. Seriously, what’s up with that? Meat is so incredibly delicious. If it wasn’t weird, I’d totally pick up meat and eat it with my hands, growling like some sort of animal the whole time. That’s how much I like meat.
The next is Sandy, the blogger behind Yes I Am Cheap, a blog that covers all sorts of finance topics (instead of just personal stuff). She got into some trouble with a failed business venture, but is slowly working at getting out of the mountain of debt she’s accumulated. She’s also the voice behind My Tenant From Hell, which was inspired by Sandy’s own crappy tenant. Don’t mess with her… Or she’ll bash you anonymously on the internet!
Rachelle from Landlord Rescue isn’t really a personal finance blog, but screw it. I’m including her anyway. She’s that awesome.
Not only does Rachelle know the property management business cold, she’s also got the tenacity of a bulldog. She’s not afraid of a good fight and won’t quit if she’s been wronged. Her sassy personality comes through on every post, making her blog a very entertaining read. It is focused on real estate so if you’re not into real estate… Actually, just head over there anyway. You’ll thank me once you read a couple of posts.
She’s Young. She’s Thrifty. She’s from Vancouver. And she’s damn sexy.
What I like about Y&T is she’s a little more advanced than a lot of the other finance blogs, talking about the stocks she picks for her TFSA. She just bought a house in Vancouver with her lucky BF, meaning my chances of breaking them up have probably diminished greatly. They’re being smart about their new purchase though, with plans to rent out the basement once renovations are completed. You guys know how much I like renting out basements.
Next up we have Red, who definitely wins the title of the weirdest title for a personal finance blog.
Red is a college student in her early 20s, who is almost unhealthily committed to paying off her student loan debt, while working on completing her degree. She just recently moved from an apartment to a house with her husband (dammit) and two cats. Even though she comes from the south, there is little evidence of any inbreeding on her blog, so that’s a plus. (Stereotypes are funny!)
I’m just kidding obviously. Red is a passionate writer who is kicking debt’s ass.
Next up we have Balance Junkie, a blog I literally just discovered a few days ago and am loving every minute of. It’s a great investing blog.
She’s a little older, so I’m going to label her the cougar of this group. She writes for Seeking Alpha, so you know she knows her stuff. She lives in Ontario, and I’m really looking forward to reading what she’s got to say in the future.
Did I miss any of your favorite blogger chicks? Leave them in the comments and I might get around to mentioning them in next year’s roundup. Worst. Tradition. Ever.
