5 Of the Best Investing and Financial Management Blogs for Millennials
If you’re a Millennial looking advice on anything related to money, finances, or investing, where is one of the primary places you’re likely to turn? For many young people, it’s blogs. Blogs represent an excellent way to not only get news and information about the financial world, but you can also get differing perspectives, stories from other people like you, and blueprints to make better financial decisions.

She blogs once a week, at a minimum, so you’re going to find fresh content; plus, she’s active on Twitter.
Afford Anything is probably one of the most well-known Millennial blogs, where it’s all about money and finances. The concept behind the blog is that you can afford anything, but not everything. The blogger started her career in 2008 but quickly realized the cubicle life wasn’t for her. She’d been saving so she used that money to backpack around the world, and once she got back, she realized her goal was to invest in things that gave her not only financial freedom but also freedom in her life.
