Remember two weeks ago when I showered some love and praise on some awesome female bloggers? Well, it’s time for another dose of that, peeps, so get ready to be inspired!
It’s still the month of March, which means Women’s History Month is still marching on! Last month I featured some super successful solopreneurs. Today, I’m featuring several other bloggers who have been big inspirations to me in one way or another. Thanks again to Shannon for including me in this! 🙂
Without further ado:
Kathleen @ Frugal Portland
Did you know Kathleen and I got to meet in real life? It was so much fun, and now I want to meet all my blog friends in real life. For the record, she is just as sweet, fun, and pretty in real life as I imagined her to be from her blog. I can’t wait to hear about her upcoming wedding and her quest to save 50% of her income this year. Kathleen is a very, very talented writer, and if you haven’t met her yet, you totally should! 🙂
Stefanie @ The Broke & Beautiful Life
Stefanie is killing it in the blogging world. It’s like she came out of nowhere with this absolutely incredible site and work ethic. Her blog has grown so massively in the past few months because she is very involved in the community and writes great content. She’s also a great side hustler. I worked with her recently and was blown away by the speed and quality of her work. I have a feeling she won’t be “broke” for much longer. 🙂
Kali @ Common Sense Millennial
I promise you that Kali is next on the list of bloggers who will be making the switch to full time. She just started putting the pedal to the metal in terms of increasing her freelance writing presence. You’ve probably seen her popping around the web, and you’ll likely see her much more in the coming weeks!
Laurie @ The Frugal Farmer
Can we all just agree right now that Laurie is one of the nicest people in our community? She has provided me with endless support and some incredibly sweet mom advice, and I’m just so thankful to know her. She’s also very inspiring, rocking her debt repayments all while raising a big family and freelance writing on the side! If you haven’t read her writing yet, you definitely should!
Erin @ Broke Millennial
As a fellow millennial, I always appreciate Erin’s great insights. I’m always impressed with her site. One day, she’s explaining IRAs and then another day she’s posting something incredibly personal and poignant that really makes you think. I feel like her personality always shines through in her writing, which is why I love to read it!
Wendy @ Girl Meets Debt
I’ve been saying this a lot, but Wendy’s blog is one of my favorites. She is someone who I really want to meet in person. I can relate to a lot of her story, and I feel like she’s very real and genuine. She just recently took a week off (the nerve!) and I feel a little lost without her fun posts and keeping it real attitude! 🙂
Carrie @ Careful Cents
How does someone even write about Carrie in a little paragraph? Carrie served as a HUGE inspiration to me when I wanted to transition to blogging full time. I loved reading her story, loved seeing how she got out of debt, and I’ve just watched as she has really rocked it out as a successful businesswoman. I think what makes her so special is that she is incredibly helpful to others, especially small business owners and freelancers. You probably all know her already but if you don’t, here are some details about her Freelancers Club.
Tonya @ Budget and the Beach
Tonya’s blog was one of the first I started reading in the PF community. She lives what I consider to be a pretty fabulous life with the freedom (and sometimes the stress) of working for herself all while playing beach volleyball on the weekends and hanging out with her friends. I just love reading about her journey and how her day job business and online business have grown over the past few years!
Catherine @ Plunged in Debt
I love keeping up with Catherine’s journey. For one, she has the CUTEST DAUGHTER ever! Seriously her kid is awesome. I love following her on Instagram! Catherine is a really hard worker who balances a full time job with some side hustles and being a mom. Catherine has some great ideas, and what I really admire about her is that she always carefully weighs how she spends her time. You can just tell from her blog that family is really important to her, and I have learned so much from my e-mail conversations with her. She is so giving especially with mom advice, and I’m just so glad that I’ve met her!
Anne @ Unique Gifter
Anne runs an awesome blog that has just about every idea for giving gifts you can think of! She is always so sweet, supportive, and professional. I love that her site has a specific niche and yet it’s applicable to so many things. I’m just waiting for her to start a personal finance blog since we all know she wants to. 😉
Michelle @ Shop My Closet Project
The first word that comes to mind when I think of Michelle is refreshing. She is really, really funny and honest. I wish I had her knack for coming up with blog posts and great post titles. Her blog is such a joy to read, and she is a seriously great writer. I promise if you haven’t read her blog yet, she’ll become one of your weekly reads.
Mrs. PoP @ Planting Our Pennies
Mrs. PoP and her hubby are such a HUGE inspiration to me. They are both incredibly smart, and I love reading their net worth updates and advice. Oh, and Kitty PoP’s antics are hilarious. If you haven’t stumbled across their site yet, be prepared to get inspired to whip your finances into shape.
Okay! That’s all for now, and I’m sure I’ve forgotten some amazing people thanks to my cloudy pregnancy brain, and if I did, please forgive me! There are so many talented female bloggers in the personal finance community, and I’m so lucky to know each of the ladies above!
What are some other personal finance blogs that you love that aren’t on this list? I’m always searching for new ones to read! Also, I’m sure the boys are pretty jealous by now after all of these Women Power Wednesday posts, but don’t worry – we love you too. If you want to have a Manly Monday or something, we’re cool with that. 🙂

I just did a little shriek of excitement because you know you are one of the bloggers I look up to the most and you just called my blog one of your favorites. Thank you dear Cat. xo
Haha you’re so sweet! It’s all true! I really am having withdrawals but I hope you have a great time off! 🙂
Aww thanks so much Cat! What a list to belong to! You’re pretty awesome yourself there lady 🙂
Aww thanks Catherine!! 😀 I wish you were coming to Fin Con!

My pleasure! Thanks for being so inspirational! 😀
So many amazing ladies on this list, thank you for including me!
Of course!! :))
Happy tears coming your way. 🙂 Seriously, though, Cat, thanks so much including me on this lost. I’m so glad to count you as a blogging friend!
This is EXACTLY why I wanted to start this movement in March, out of your 12 bloggers, I am only following six of them. I am SO excited to get to know the other six. It’s like being introduced to friends by other friends, you just feel like you know you are going to love them. And I am having Wendy withdrawals too! I know she needs a break, but seriously, we all need a Wendy fix too. 🙂
I think all of these ladies, including you Cat, are inspirational and do great work. I am happy to know you and get to interact regularly!
Ha, I bet the boys are jealous! Great list of awesome ladies.
Cat thank you so much for the kind words. I got a little teary eyed! You made my day 🙂
Great post! Some of the ones you listed are already on my list of favorites, but now I have some new ones to explore as well. The only downside is trying to find the time to do more reading 🙂
holy cow! you just absolutely made my day. thanks so much, friend!
You are so sweet!!
This is such a fantastic list, I didn’t know about everyone on the list either.
Aww, thanks so much! You totally made my day to be included. =)
But you forgot…..just kidding =) Great list!
Cat, this is an awesome list! Thanks for sharing, I’ll be checking out these blogs today 😉
Love them all. Thanks for the list, it’s good to be reminded of these talented bloggers 😉
Great list! I visit most of these sites on a daily basis and really enjoy their posts. I think Manly Monday might have to happen haha
Oh great!! I already love your site and several of the sites you just mentioned so I’m sure once I check out your other recommendations I will love them too and I think I already spend way too much time reading PF blogs, LOL.
Thanks so much for including me Cat! I love the pic of you and Kathleen BTW! Very cute! Getting “on the list” just keeps me motivated to not only keep trying to write good content, but also to keep living a financially “responsible” life!
Glad to see this community become more diverse! Great article and nice to see everyone getting involved in personal finance. Keep it up!
Love all these women! Kathleen is awesome — she is the one who inspired me to start my blog!
Isn’t she the best? 😀
Great list! I’m fortunate to already read some of those but I have found a couple more to add to my feedly!
