I’ve seen a lot of these lists – and for the most part they are the same 5-10 “popular” blogs that have been around forever, and been featured in the Globe & Mail or Money Sense. The majority of these are from “professional bloggers”. I may be in the minority here – but I prefer the smaller, independent blogs – the personal blogs – and more specifically the ones that aren’t constantly pushing referral codes, credit card reviews, or trying to get you to sign up for something. Don’t get me wrong – if you want to – and are able to make money from your blog -by all means do it and good for you.
My list however, is for the blogs I prefer- where you feel like you know the reader, and you can follow them on their journey. These blogs are also all written by Canadians and focus on investing/personal finance.
Passive Canadian Income – Rob is the same age as me, has 2 kids, and lives one province over. He has multiple streams of passive income (dividend stocks, private investment solar panels & more)!
GenYMoney Although she posts “anonymously” she is very open with her portfolio, net worth, expenses, etc. We own a few of the same stocks, and have a very similar dividend income. GenY lives in BC.
Smile & Conquer Sarah is from Edmonton & a big time hockey fan. This is probably the only blog I regularly read that doesn’t focus primarily on stocks & investing. Sarah still writes about personal finance – but her posts cover a bit of everything as well.
Roadmap 2 Retire I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – this is the first investing blog I ever followed. Sabeel does a great job of analysing stocks, discussing economic trends, and also has an interest in precious metals & crypto-assets.
My Own Advisor Okay….I had to include 1 “professional” blogger on this list – but only because I truly enjoy his site and have for years. Mark is from Ontario, and has been running his site for what seems like forever. He is a big time proponent of low cost ETF’s, and his site is a great resource for everyone – from beginners to experienced investors. He also likes hockey & beer 🙂
All About The Dividends Matt is also from Ontario, and posts about his stock purchases, monthly updates, and plans to quit the rat race as soon as possible. Matt owns a few of the same stocks as me – and has recently started investing more in US stocks.
Dividend Income Stocks German is from Quebec, and has 2 kids. His portfolio is a bit newer than most on this list, but it is amazing how fast he has been growing it, and his yield is remarkable. He does a great job analysing Canadian stocks, and his portfolio just hit a new milestone!
Financial Uproar Nelson is from Alberta -and his site is a bit of a mixed bag (in a good way). When he wants to – Nelson can (and does) a great job of fundamental stock breakdowns, and just as often, he is writing comedic gold (a lot of dick and fart jokes) sometimes both in the same post. Check him out. *Warning* May Contain Explicit Language *Warning*
FI Garage This is a new blog I recently started following. It is written by 3 different people (an economist, a mechanic & an accountant)- so you get 3 unique perspectives. Even better, they enjoy beer, and even have a podcast where they try new beers and discuss personal finance)!
