Have you ever had a question about personal finance, but didn’t want to read a 300 page textbook or scour through various media postings that are either biased or outdated?
A good place to start may be a few of the personal finance blogs below. They all contain lots of valuable information on anything related to personal finance and are written by everyday Canadians……

This blog is full of financial information ranging from retirement to beginners guides to investing. It also includes two unique perspectives from different generations – Boomer (Generation X) and Echo (Generation Y). This blog also has information on cash back rewards and I have used it myself to make sure I am getting the most rewards for my money.
Written from a soon-to-be millionaire, this blog chronicles the financial aspects of the author’s life (“Frugal Trader”) and contains tons of information relating to investments, saving money, tax and anything else related to personal finance. It also includes information on the Smith Maneouvre, a popular method of making your mortgage interest tax deductible.
Net worth updates are posted regularly and a detailed breakdown of Frugal’s investment portfolios.
If you’re looking to learn from a self-made millionaire in the making – definitely check out this blog
I may be a bit biased towards blogs written from fellow bean counters, but this one is the king of tax information.
Written from a tax partner at a major accounting firm, this blog offers a candid look into the tax situations Canadians may face. You could literally ask this blogger anything tax related and he would be able to give a knowledgeable answer.
If I ever had a complex tax situation and needed a resource I could look at, this blog would be the first place I would look.
This is a blog about a fellow Canadian who aspires to make his own financial decisions rather than paying an advisor to do so.
Containing lots of information about investing, this is another blog that I have used to read about different investment ideas and how I can use them to grow my own personal wealth.
It has practical ideas with timely and valuable information that anyone can use to help their investments grow.
Another great blog that has financial information geared towards Canadians. This blog covers virtually everything related to finance from ETF investing to frugal living.
One of my favorite aspects is that this blogger ‘walks the walk’ – he has some content about the Smith Manoeuvre (an investing method that effectively makes your mortgage tax-deductible) and he takes it a step further by implementing his own Smith Manoeuvre.
The list above is definitely not exhaustive and I know there are plenty of other blogs out there with great information on personal finance. What blogs do you read on your own financial journey?
