Taking The "Blah" Out Of Blogs

by Katy on December 15, 2008 · 2 comments



There are a number of blogs that I really like, and thought I’d share them with you. Today’s snow and ice meant I have not ventured off the porch yet, so there was much blog hopping here at casa Wolk-Stanley. Enjoy.

The Simple Dollar

Trent Hamm’s terrific blog about how he changed the habits that got him deeply into debt.  This blog is Trent’s full time job and he takes it very seriously. He writes a couple of pieces every day, and does very in-depth book reviews that have steered me towards a number of great library books. 

Get Rich Slowly

This is another great blog about personal finance. I really like the humor of  the writer, who is a fellow Portlander. I highly recommend this blog.

Crunchy Chicken

This blog is written by a Seattle woman who writes about living frugally, and in an environmentally responsible manner. She is an engaging writer and her blog is a great read. Her freeze yer buns challenge alone is worth a read.

The Frugalista

What’s not to love about a woman who is trying to stay on the “frugal side of fabulous?” Natalie McNeal is a welcome respite in a world where so many frugality blogs forget about the single gals. Very fun.

You don’t need a weather excuse to read these great blogs on a regular basis, as they all offer free subscriptions. 

Stay warm.

What blog do you read on a regular basis? Or perhaps you have your own blog that you’d like to share with The Non-Consumer Advocate community. Please share in the comments section below.

I’ll have to check out the last two. I’m already a faithful reader of TSD and GRS.

I cheerfully blog about frugality at The Frugal Girl. Hopefully that link will work…I’ve never tried doing that in a comment before! lol If you, you can click on my name above, and you’ll be taken to my blog.

That was the best holiday present ever. Your favorite frugality blogs.

Thank you!
