    I find that personal finance blogs are very personally wired to the readers.

    So while I read half of what you list above, the other half I only occasionally read.

    My favorite 6 are:
    Financial Samurai (serious talent here!)
    Everyday Tips and Thoughts (very brainy, great advice all around)
    Watson Inc (each post is quality! great blogger)
    Get Rich Slowly (fantastic, although I’m just so-so on his staff writers)
    FreeMoneyFinance (quick read, but to the point)
    Consumerism Commentary (just started, but I have more in common than I use to think, so now I enjoy this site more)

    Since not all blog post everyday, I usually read/skim 20 – 30 blogs a day. Obviously, including this one… :)

    I agree that PF blogs are very personal. As a singleton, I often find the family-oriented mom ones are a bit much right now. As a non-U.S. citizen, my must-have blogs also include Canadian writers. (who have many great posts, not just about RRSPs and TFSAs!)

    However, I do enjoy Trent Hamm’s The Simple Dollar because he has great DIY recipes and gift ideas series.

      I did leave out the canadians due to the whole not being canadian. I couldn’t really say the best one due to not knowing the landscape of canadian finance, such as the examples you gave. But 1 day perhaps.

        The Simple Dollar is American, actually :)

        Some Canadian ones I’d recommend for American readers would be Gail Vazoxlade (http://gailvazoxlade.com) and Squawkfox (http://www.squawkfox.com/). They have a lot of good general advice and character. I follow many other Canadian PF blogs, but they’re more local (i.e. RRSPs, TFSAs, taxes, etc.)

    Definitely Thomas J. Stanley’s blog — http://www.thomasjstanley.com/blog.php

    I have yet to read a post that has sucked. His insights on millionaires are motivational and absolutely spot on.

    And of course, everyone on my blogroll:

    THANK YOU for not including The Simple Dollar. It used to be one of the most helpful blogs out there, but now almost every post rubs me the wrong day. Nothing worse than talking down to your readership.

    Sorry to be a Negative Nancy. All these sites are great!

    I read all of those, except for Girl with the Red Balloon. Looks like I’ll be adding her into my RSS reader.

    Are you suggesting I should only subscribe to these 6 blogs and forget about all others including this one? – Nah. I will just keep reading this one, “Financially Poor”, and the others I am subscribing to. :-)

    Great list…. All are ridiculously comprehensive! My main daily reads include.

    http://www.Budgetsaresexy.com
    http://www.fabulouslybroke.com
    http://www.moneycrashers.com
    http://ptmoney.com
    http://www.consumerismcommentary.com/

    We all have probably a ton of sites in our RSS reader, but we all have the same consistent we always make sure we read everyday.

    I would like to recommend this one as well: http://www.smart-debt-solutions.com It is comparatively a new blog; however, it has a lot of high-quality, unique content on debt related matters.
