Unfortunately, this wasn't a surprise to me as well given the highly risk averse nature of the typical BHer.

Despite this critique, I'd venture that judging from my investment and life decisions, I'm probably closer to the prototypical BHer than the so-called 'average' one here, except for my age! (I'm likely younger, I'm guessing.)

I tend to visit sites for their communities...like here.

Very different vibe then here. However, different perspectives are good : https://forum.mrmoneymustache.com/

A great place to talk about 'efficient vehicles'. In fact one of the best auto communities I have ever been a part of : https://priuschat.com/forum/

Oh and many deals sites like techbargains.com, slickdeals.com, etc...

Most time spent on BH but if time permits mrmoneymustache forums are ok, automotive forums (bobistheoilguy, car specific forums like GM-trucks), deal sites (dansdeals, slickdeals, doctor of credit).

It's more of confirmation bias. Like I said, despite my critique, I'm almost definitely more "BH"-philosophy in terms of general risk-aversity as well as investing risk-aversity (+simplicity) than the avg BH here - I've been doing the Vanguard index thing for the past 21 years!

A couple more that I frequent:

Whitecoat Investor Forum (many doctors hand out there)

There are some Facebook Groups that are similar to forums in many ways. ChooseFI is a good one for the FIRE crowd.

I'll venture over to mrmoneymustache from time to time. Some of the threads there feel like a black hole that you're sucked into for hours at a time. I much prefer this forum due to it's "actionable" rule. Sifting through pages upon pages of people bickering back and forth over the merits of paying down your mortgage vs. investing for actual real advice can get tiresome.

Not sure if these are forums as much as they are articles followed by a comment/discussion section, but here goes:

I love Jalopnik for general automotive news and mindless gear-head-oriented entertainment. Some of the other sister sites like Lifehacker or Gizmodo are also interesting at times. However, all the cross-linking between the various sites hosted there can be good or bad. Sometime it exposes you to an interesting new topic or viewpoint, but other times it might be content targeted to a certain demographic or political extreme. Occasionally their Kinja Deals site has proven useful, although I'm not certain how much is just curated deals versus sponsored. Buyer beware as always, but they have helped me catch some nifty short-lived online shopping deals.

Web forums used to be a popular format, but they seem to be going the way of the dinosaur, this forum excepted.

I mainly visit blogs, reddit, and occasionally some of the stack-exchange sites.

Among the daily blogs are the computer security ones by Bruce Shiener and Brian Krebs.

I used to enjoy Bodybuilding.com forums, but I got tired of all 20 year old, 5'5, 100 lb guys talking about "gainz", saying every successful athlete is on 'roids, and purposefully using terrible grammar. Now, I just follow a few fitness accounts on Twitter.

I like:

There is also Reddit where I am subscribed to many varied threads.

Do I spend too much time on the computer? Maybe, but when the weather is bad here in Maine I can pop in the den and read a few things and go back about my chores or hit the garage or shovel snow/slush!

Not a forum exactly, but for house maintenance, restoration, building, etc: www.jlconline.com. You can create a free account that will let you see most articles for free. I always do some research there before planning a project or talking to contractors.

My favorite one for old houses is this one.
https://thehistoricdistrict.org/
We have an Arts and Crafts bungalow currently, but have restored a museum quality 1809 Georgian Colonial and an 1840 Cape Cod house on 53 acres.

+1 Im on there too - we live in a 1795 vintage cape. I was part of original rebel group that left oldhouseweb and ended up there via a brief stop at wavyglass.

Lots of videos and interactive stuff. All n/c.

Although I don’t spend much time there anymore (because I now have at least 10 correspondents around the world), I also like: http://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/
Writing with a fountain pen is retro, cathartic, and wonderfully enjoyable.

But of course there is no forum that compares to the Bogleheads forum. It is a unique community, and I’m happy to be a part of it.
Can you elaborate on what you mean by correspondents? Is this the graduated form of a pen pal?

I have been into fountain pens for a little over a year but haven't frequented those forums for live discussion, just research on inks and pens. Agreed fully on the allure of fountain pens. It is actually a joy to write now.
I prefer not to use the term “pen pal.” I had a pen pal when I was a boy. That was then, this is now.

The topics we correspond about today are a bit deeper, wider, and reflect the life experience and education of mature adults. Life, death, world travel, careers, art, money, adult children, society—we get to express ourselves and receive input from others via thoughtful hand-written letters.

Many like to write about pens, ink, paper, etc. But once your correspondence goes on for months and years, you’re basically writing about your lives, the ups and downs, the high and low points. These people become your friends. I’ve met several when I’ve traveled.

The correspondence can go on for years or one person may discontinue for some reason. Just like real life.

I have 3 Pelikan FPs that I use. I’m not a collector.

Happy to answer more questions. Just PM me.

This forum is head and shoulders above the rest. I read MrMoneyMustache from time to time, but they're all recklessly assuming the bull market will go forever and they plan to pull the plug and start withdrawing 4% a year as soon as they hit $500k. Many of them in their 20s.

I also read mrmoneymustache and earlyretirement. My take on mrmoneymustache is also that most are in their 20s-30s with ridiculous expectations--good luck with that! This forum seems to be wiser people in their (say) late 30s-40s. Earlyretirement has, predictably, a lot of people in their 50s-60s. These are obviously generalities, but across the three boards I get a wide spectrum of how people think about money matters.

Ha that is so true! I try to be the 'old guy' voice of reason on MrMoneyMustache and point out that very few of the 100% equity'ers have been through a real correction/crash. However, I always get shot down with the "If a correction happens I'm just buying more!' argument. Then I have to point out that many in the '08-'09 crash could not afford to "buy more" because they were jobless and not only couldn't invest at the low point...but lost homes, etc... And the arguments go on and on.

I used to read creditboards but I stopped because I saw too many threads that I viewed as people discussing ways to cheat the system unethically or even illegally. I don't know whether this still happens. In any case, if one has a legit credit related problem, it is a great site to get help.

A bit broader scope than BH, but covers some of the same ground but the culture of the forum is different than BH. Also, they still allow polls. :D
Several of us there who are obviously also BH'ers frequently refer to this forum for certain topics.

Seeking Alpha.

A love-hate relationship. Lots of timely news and a good place to monitor your portfolio. However, the submitted articles are often of dubious quality and the commentary ranges from insightful to fatuous. You get what you pay for..
