Below I have gathered a list of useful blogs to follow that deal with financial independence and early retirement (FIRE). This is a non-exhaustive list and I will add more as I go along. Feel free to explore them and let me know if you feel a particular blog is missing. Even if the topic is the same, every blogger has a unique perspective and the more diverse your reading list, the more successful you will be.
US FIRE blogs
Probably my favourite of the useful blogs to follow. Mr. Money Mustache is an US-based early retiree demonstrating that FIRE is a functional concept. His blog offers tips on how to save efficiently and is the prime example that living frugally and being happy are not mutually exclusive. Mr. Money Mustache has a very relaxed attitude towards money which really reminds me not to overthink my finances.
UK FIRE blogs
Monevator offers tons of tips around investing. Some posts are less beginner-friendly than others, but still worth a read if you are interested in making the most of your money. Definitely read this post before you go so you understand the basic concept of FIRE. If you are looking to set up and index fund for your journey to financial independence, I definitely recommend reading this blog. Monevator also offers lots of ideas to plan for early retirement.
The Firestarter is a UK-based blog about financial independence. Starting from zero, the Firestarter has amassed pretty impressing savings during this time period. This blog is a bit of a nightmare to navigate through, but very inspirational. Also, lots of unconventional ideas to make money!
Another UK-based guy working his way to FIRE. Looking at his pretty net worth graph always encourages me. The Finance Zombie offers great analytical posts with humour sprinkled in between.
