This is the Day 11 challenge in the #Money30, a month-long bootcamp for personal finance novices. You can read more about the challenge here, and follow along with us on Twitter, Instagram, or email us at feedback@moneymail.com.

TIME BUDGET: 5 MINUTES


By now you’ve checked your credit report, tracked your spending, and spruced up your LinkedIn account. The next #Money30 challenge is to subscribe to a personal finance newsletter, blog, or website, so you’ll have a steady stream of money tips at your disposal long after this month-long challenge is over.

Some of my favorite blogs/newsletters/websites include:

  • Money.com (obviously): You can follow us here, here, and here.
  • Money After Graduation: Bookmark the site or sign up for Bridget’s newsletter. Smart and refreshing takes on millennial money.
  • The Billfold: Now hosted exclusively on Medium, The Billfold starts a ton of interesting conversations on money and personal finance.
  • Your Money and Your Life: NPR’s personal finance Facebook community is a treasure trove of useful information and friendly commenters (yes, really).
  • Your Money: The New York Timespersonal finance newsletter. You can’t go wrong with the Times.
  • Lifehacker: It’s not all money tips, but Gawker’s life-hack blog has some of the most consistently useful content on the web.

And if blogs aren’t enough for you, here are some personal finance Twitter stars to consider following:

  • Another shameless Money plug: Here’s a list of the entire Money team. We’re fun.
  • Sarah Kliff isn’t exactly a personal finance expert, but she tweets a ton of useful info on healthcare and insurance.
  • Maggie McGrath covers markets and millennial money for Forbes, with a few pop culture tweets mixed in for good measure.
  • Over at Refinery29, Lindsey Stanberry is the Living Features Director, and writes smartly about saving money and the sacrifices that entails.
  • Shane Ferro covers the economy for The Huffington Post, and tweets about the wage gap and #millennialproblems.

Other Money staffers suggest following: Jonnelle Marte, Michelle Singletary, Helaine Olen, Jonathan Cohn, and Dan Diamond.
