Thanks for the shoutout. I read Piper, Sit, Ferri, Swedroe, Kitces, and Pfau regularly. Kitces and Pfau can be pretty meaty if you're really in the mood for something to sink your teeth into. They're not really aimed at the retail investor though.

Same here. I know he gets bashed around here (as elsewhere) but I still love his message. I've written before that Bogleheads helped me the most on investing, but Mr Money Mustache's blog helped me the most on saving (i.e. not spending). And I have to thank Bogleheads because I found his site 1.5 years ago thanks to an offhand reference to him in a post in this forum. Somehow MMM's bombastic spiel connected with me and really motivated me to save more, minimize more, simplify, and spend less. I was already on that path but I credit him for getting me more intense about it.

I also like The Finance Buff.

+1 for the White Coat Investor (EmergDoc). Highly readable, full of useful information - covers complicated stuff in a straightforward manner. Targeted to physicians, but relevant to anyone with a generous but not ginormous income.

I intermittently read Mr. Money Mustache. I'd like to retire early and want to learn from anyone who's done it, and he has a really interesting perspective. However, I would never ride a bike as my primary transportation and I have no interest in learning how to fix-it or make-it, things he seems to think are deal-breakers. Hence I feel like a bad apple when I read his blog, hence the intermittnentness of the reading...

In addition to above-mentioned I still like Free Money Finance, although it's not as good as a year ago, the author started a new job and relies much more on readers posts.

I loved the 150 portfolio article recently...read it a couple of times and have bookmarked it to study.

Also enjoy Rick Ferri and the Vanguard blog.

I must admit, I'm not a huge fan of MMM. I've been there, read it, but as a couple of others have mentioned, there is just stuff that he pushes that I'm not going to do.

I know why some blog authors do this, but I generally find that the quality deteriorates when they start relying so much on others. This happened, for instance, to Get Rich Slowly, and I am concerned about it happening to White Coat Investor.

Yea, that one from Bernstein really caused a drop off in quality.... :)

Seriously though, selecting guest posts is tricky business. I reject 95% of them.

It isn't a blog, but I really like getting the free weekly emails from Mike Piper, his "Investing Blog Roundup." Basically, he does the shopping for us, usually includes links to articles of interest on other blogs or publications, or a brief summary of some current financial topic. Sometimes I learn about a random topic I don't have much interest in (like income threshholds for ACA health plans), from his succinct summary. Thanks, Mike!

Top favorites are the blogs from Rick Ferri, Alan Roth, and Larry Swedroe, but I also keep coming back to these and finding more ways to stay the course:
