In honor of Women’s History Month, Shannon from Financially Blonde gathered a group of bloggers to recognize and honor some of our favorite female bloggers every Wednesday. This is both an easy and hard task! There are so many wonderful personal finance bloggers (especially when you include all the men) that it was hard to know who to feature. So I did what I would tell anyone else in my predicament to do—go back to the beginning.
Like most new bloggers, I spent the first few months adrift, writing and publishing posts that nobody read and feeling a bit lost. I finally joined Twitter, which changed everything. The women I’m featuring today are some of the first connections I made, and women who I greatly admire and am proud to call my friends.
Siccorra at Tackling Our Debt was one of the first friends I made on Twitter. Through her, I was introduced to so many people who have all played a role in the growth and success of The Heavy Purse. Sicorra is my go-to person when I have questions and I am grateful for our friendship. You can follow Sicorra on twitter and learn more about her at Tackling Our Debt.
Holly at Club Thrifty is a personal finance blogger powerhouse. I love her tell it like is style with a big heart. She is a Mom to two beautiful young girls, and she (and her husband, Greg) are great financial role models to them. She always makes me laugh and is a master at travel hacking. You can follow Holly on twitter and learn more about her at Club Thrifty.
Kim at Eyes on the Dollar is an optometrist who now has 20/20 vision when it comes to her finances. Kim has gone from overworked, stressed out and in debt to someone living on her terms. She is another frugal Mom who is taking the time to teach her daughter how to handle money wisely, which I always love to see. You can follow Kim at on twitter and learn more about her at Eyes on the Dollar.
Tonya at Budget and The Beach first caught me eye with the name of her blog. Budget and beach are two of my favorite words! Then I find out she is a Southern California girl and practically a neighbor. Now I’m a huge fan. Her blog is fun-spirited and witty—just like she is. You can follow Tonya on twitter and learn more about her at Budget and The Beach.
Pauline at Reach Financial Independence is a personal finance rock star. She left behind the Corporate world in her 20’s and while she still works, it’s on her schedule. Pauline is one of the hardest working people I know, but she also spends weeks or months traveling each year too. You can follow Pauline on twitter and learn more about her at Reach Financial Independence.
I certainly encourage you to visit these ladies and start following them if you are not currently doing so. They have all made a difference in my life and I’m certain they will in your life too. Next week, I’ll be featuring more great ladies, so stay tuned.
