Inspirational Blogs - Cashflow Cop Police Financial Independence Blog


The personal finance blogging space is very busy, but the financial independence movement is relatively new.  Although there were people writing about this stuff decades ago, they were well before their time and before the age of the internet.  Over the last 10 years and especially over the last few years, the FI community has really grown.  Here are just a few of blogs that I particularly enjoy.

Mr Money Mustache

This was one of the first FI blog I cam across.  He is US-based.  I like his no nonsense and straight to the point approach.

Mad Fientist

A well-designed website with some very useful tools and well-written articles.  Again, this is US-focused but many of the principles could be applied in the UK.

The Escape Artist

A UK-based blogger who also offers financial coaching.  His articles inject a bit of humour into them.

Young FI Guy

A UK-based blogger who reached financial independence before the age of 30.

Rockstar Finance

A US-based site containing a directory of personal finance blogs.  I find the newsletter the best part as they scan hundreds of blogs and select the best few articles to read on a daily basis.  

Cashflow Cop

I’m a 34-year-old cop pursuing Financial Independence with my wife and 2-year-old son. I invest in property and the stock market (mainly index funds). Here, I document our journey and aim to make work optional by the time I’m 40 so I can spend more time with my family, do charity work and travel.
