Hey thanks for the inclusion! :) From a blogger perspective, the MMM readers are like solid GOLD. I am blessed with a wonderful readership, but I have never seen such community and sub-threading in a blog as you get in the MMM comments and these forums, and I'm always happy when a MMM reader stops by my own little chunk of the interwebs to say hello.

Gotta echo what Erica said above, she took the words right out of my mouth. Thanks for putting my humble little blog on the list. Now I feel obligated to write an update!

Erica, I was web surfing the other day and one link led to another led to another led to this post of yours: 

http://www.nwedible.com/2012/10/dear-busy-person-an-open-letter-to-you.html 

It was just what I needed to read at this point in my life, and I thank you for it!  It is definitely "solid gold" and the only reason I hadn't commented on it yet is because I was still mulling it over.

Great list Grant.  This must have taken you some time to put together.  Thank you for doing so, it'.l be a great resource.

Thanks PJ. :) It was a heckova couple of months there for awhile. That post was sort of my public "note to self: keep the important things in perspective" reminder. I'm glad it resonated with people.

What's that thing at the bottom of the MMM home page that says "blog roll"?

Thanks for compiling these though, I am always looking for new material.

Thanks for the link there, Grant!

Now I feel bad for not getting unmoored enough from work to finish the four articles that I haven't hit publish on yet. Have to try and fix that for you folks the next couple days. :)

I enjoy my work, but I do have to admit... it's hard to tell people "no" when you're doing work for HaShem and His ministries. Your article still struck a chord with me, Erica. Thank you.

This is fantastic. I know we don't have any besides those in the Welcome and General Discussion forum, but might this thread be a good candidate for a sticky? It would be a shame to lose it down the page, especially if it were kept updated.

How exciting, I got first mention!
First the honorable MMM himself puts a direct link to one of my posts right inside of his "What do you mean you don't have a bike" post - which alone has accounted for more of my traffic than every other source combined and helped to propel it to within the top few google results for "how to buy a bike on craigsilst"
And now this!

And by sheer coincidence, I had just gone back to some old forum threads and extracted a bunch of my comments and consolidated them into a series of posts for my blog, so I've got a MMM forums theme going for the rest of the week.

On a separate note, the following blog is not mine: http://ecomodder.com/blog/
However, I am a regular contributor (I wrote 7 of the last 10 posts), and of course, no matter who is writing it, the entire theme of the website fits into the concept of mustachianism well: when/if you are going to drive a car, drive it as efficiently as possible, to maximize your utility for minimal fuel.

My husband (Herr Handlebar) and I just started a blog about becoming Mustachian: http://becomingmustachian.habiano.com. We've recently shifted from spending everything we earned to saving 78% of our income last month! I'm hoping that our blog might be helpful to others who are just getting started as well.

There are only about 10 posts so far, but I am always motivated to write another one when I see more people visiting and commenting. :)

My blog isn't so heavily Mustachian-focused as a lot of the great ones mentioned here, but I'm hoping it becomes a nice mix of how my wife and I live reasonably, the projects we tackle at home, and investment strategy. My decision to move home was heavily influenced by reading MMM's post on the true cost of commuting and constant optimism about the ease of making money, even in retirement. We'll see how my blog evolves as readership influences the direction.

Hi, I vote to have Lacking Ambition on the list.  He started with nothing and no college degree and retired at 28 (?) after about 5 years of working.  His plan revolved around renting and rehabbing properties and being frugal.  He also got a law degree during that time just for fun -- he never bothered to actually get a job with it becuase he was already mostly retired at that point.  I also think his philosophy of work, and time, and money is interesting.

Here is a good starting post.  But I suggest going through the archives from the beginning.

Lacking Ambition is one of my favorite blogs, have read every post (most more than once) and is probably second favorite PF/FI blogger after MMM.  But (and correct me if I'm wrong, and I hope I am) I don't think he qualifies for this list.  If I were making a list of good FI blogs, he'd be near the top though.

Thanks for making this list Grant!  I am always looking for something new to read.  To those of you who mentioned lacking ambition....I love that one now, I started reading it yesterday and it's very good.  I'm off to read some of the others on the list!

I'm blogging about my financial education on schof.org. I've compiled a pretty Mustachian set of financial steps to success here: http://schof.org/2012/12/29/a-financial-roadmap/ . While I'm not currently living a fully Mustachio'd life, the blog is about my progress, and I started in a pretty un-Mustachian state.

You can check out my entire series of financial blog posts here: http://schof.org/category/financial-competence/

I'm currently doing a chapter-by-chapter review of Bernstein's "Investor's Manifesto" and plan to do the same for "The Intelligent Asset Allocator" and "A Random Walk Down Wall Street." I welcome anyone pointing out anything I got wrong or right.

Arebelspy's right, it's for readers. Maybe you could email MMM and ask if he's considered listing Lacking Ambition on his blogroll, or maybe inviting him for a guest post.

List updated.

Nice list.

I've been absent in these parts for awhile (academic projects, major emergency home repairs, and having a newborn provided ample distraction), but my wife and I maintain a blog, Real Sustainable Habits. It's mostly a recipe blog, but there's some posts about money-saving, fitness, and positive mental habits, as well.

I believe Mad Fientist is also a MMM reader and a member of the forums. http://www.madfientist.com/

If you read this madfientist, fix your rss feed.  I've subscribed to it about 4 times, but it never updates correctly.  So I only go check and read your blog when someone reminds me, and then I have to go back and figure out which post I left off on.. Doubly hard when posts aren't dated.

I'd like it to update in google reader, but it doesn't like to do that.

No problem! Thanks for adding it.

Hope everything is still going well

I guess saying our major home repairs were an "emergency" might have left the wrong impression. We had to fix structural damage and replace damaged windows in the front bay before the baby and the coldest days arrived. These were urgent, somewhat unexpected issues, but not the result of an accident or anything. It cost us $5,000 and was a quite time-consuming job, unfortunately, but we saved $3,500 by my helping the contractor repair the structural damage and by doing most of the other work myself.

Other than that, things are real well. Adjusting to parenthood has been a blast (a sleep-deprived blast, but a blast nonetheless).

It's good to see you again!

Thanks. Same here.

While he doesn't post in the forums, the Mad FIentist is a great guy who blogs about financial independence at his eponymous blog and podcast -- he even interviewed MMM himself!

Grant, thanks a lot for the kind words and for including me on your list!  I'm looking forward to taking a look at some of these other blogs that I haven't checked out yet.

Nathan, I appreciate you putting in a good word for me.  I hope fatherhood is treating you well so far.

A Rebel Spy, are you still having problems with the feed?  I had no idea there were issues so sorry it's been such a pain in the ass for you.  Let me know if it's still an issue and I'll definitely look into it.  I use Feedburner, like a lot of other people do, but maybe I set something up incorrectly.  I'm currently in the process of helping another blogger on this list (JLCollinsNH) migrate his site so it'd be good to know if I set up something incorrectly on mine so that I don't do the same on his!

I believe I have received the last few posts correctly in Google Reader.

Not sure what the issue was, but it appears to have corrected itself.

Plus I subscribed to your podcast in iTunes, so I've at least got a backup plan on those.

Keep up the great blogging!  You are one of the few analytical FI blogs, and I really appreciate that (a lot are fluff and/or repeating the same old stuff - MMM, JLCollins, and you really break new ground, IMO).

Feedburner went through an awful series of glitches last fall.  It was so bad that neither the guy I was working with nor myself could get it set up correctly, and several dozen other FINCON personal-finance bloggers were having the same bunch of issues.

The lack of customer support led to wild rumors that Google had abandoned the project.

I believe I have received the last few posts correctly in Google Reader.

Not sure what the issue was, but it appears to have corrected itself.

Plus I subscribed to your podcast in iTunes, so I've at least got a backup plan on those.

Great, I'm glad everything is working now (and thanks for persevering with it).

Keep up the great blogging!  You are one of the few analytical FI blogs, and I really appreciate that (a lot are fluff and/or repeating the same old stuff - MMM, JLCollins, and you really break new ground, IMO).

That's an amazing compliment to be included with MMM and JLCollins so thank you very much!  I sometimes worry my site is too analytical and my writing style too academic so it's great to hear that you enjoy the analytical nature of it.

I had heard some rumblings about Feedburner and the fact that Google may have abandoned it but I never heard anyone mention an adequate replacement.  Is there anything else out there that works better?

Nathan, I appreciate you putting in a good word for me.

No problem! Mustachians should know about the good work you do!

When I moved my blog I put a couple hours into troubleshooting my Feedburner setup and gave up.  (Later I learned that FB was having problems that weekend.)  Now I just recommend that my readers use RSS or, for those who prefer e-mail, a WordPress subscription plugin.  Or, heaven forbid, they could read the posts on the actual blog when they go up at 5 AM HST every Mon/Wed/Thu.

I don't send out e-mail newsletters or otherwise market to my reader list, though, so I don't have to solve a problem.

The FINCON threads on Feedburner problems found solutions with Feedblitz, Mailchimp, AWeber, or GetResponse.  I've never used any of these five so I can't vouch for their feature overlap, ease of use, or reliability.

This is a great list.  Thans so much for taking the effort to put this together.  I find myself following more and more blogs on here as the months pass by.  I've recently begun a new chapter in my life and have started blogging about it at www.bottlingmoonlight.com.  My husband and I recently made the decision to quit, put everything in storage, and move into a van with our toddler son to travel the country.  Principles of mustachianism have enabled us to be financially comfortable enough to do this, and we're putting into practice a number of the ideas MMM has discussed ($10 cell phone plan, high deductible health plan, etc.).  The blog will mostly be about our travels, but if anyone is interested in checking it out, I'd love to have you!

Cheers,

Stacey

Dynamite.  I've been looking for bloggers traveling with kids.

It seems bloggers with kids and bloggers who travel don't overlap too much (I.e. most "traveling" are single or as a couple).

I'll be reading, and hoping you update regularly (and, if it's not too much to ask, keep track of your spending for me and share it!) and don't let it fall by the wayside, like most bloggers.  ;)

Thanks for sharing your link.
I am a former teacher who accumulated a bunch of real estate, retired at 29, spent some time traveling the world full time and am now settled with three kids.
If you want to know more about me, this Business Insider profile tells the story pretty well.
I (rarely) blog at AdventuringAlong.com. Check out the Now page to see what I'm up to currently.
