The reason this blog exists is partly down to the collective knowledge and friendliness of the bloggers in the personal finance sphere. Here are some of my favourites (starting with UK based blogs):
Monevator – An excellent resource – I always keep an eye on their slow and steady portfolio.
Matched Betting Guy – Inspiring matched betting progress over the years; he makes huge profits every month and although most won’t achieve this, it’s been great to track his progress over the years.
Odyssey to Fire – a fellow classics related FI/RE blog based in the EU. I enjoy the blog’s monthly passive income and expenses report.
