This week concludes the Women’s Power Wednesday series that Shannon from Financially Blonde organized to honor Women’s History Month. It’s been so much fun to recognize some of my favorite female personal finance bloggers and hopefully introduce you to some new faces to follow as well.
In Part 1: I shared the ladies who were some of the first connections I made online and have been instrumental in the growth of The Heavy Purse through their continued support. In Part 2, I introduced you to some of my favorite inspirational bloggers. Today’s ladies represent mega girl power (in fairness, all the ladies I’ve highlighted do). If these young, vibrant ladies are our future, then we are in good hands.
Erin at Broke Millennial starting sending me tweets not long after she started blogging. Eventually, I had to find out who this Broke Millennial was. What I discovered was a financially confident young woman—the kind of girl that I am raising my girls to be. Her parents taught her to be money savvy, which is helping her live and thrive in one of the most expensive cities in the world. You can follow Erin on twitter and learn more about her at Broke Millennial.
Anna at Are Ya Gonna Eat That had a great start to 2014 as she paid off her debt and got married! Like me, Anna is also a Southern California girl who runs marathons, and she is one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. I always love learning what is going on in Anna’s life—financial-related or not—and she has great group of regular commenters, making it a very welcoming blog. You can follow Anna on twitter and learn more about her at Are Ya Gonna Eat That.
Mackenzie at The Random Path is without a doubt one of the best writers in the personal finance community as she truly writes from the heart. There has been times when I have read one of her posts and been deeply moved by how her writing so beautifully expresses her emotions and thoughts. You can follow Mackenzie on twitter and learn more about her at The Random Path.
Cat at Budget Blonde first caught my attention with her blog name. As a blonde who loves budgets, I knew we were destined to become fast friends. Cat has a great, unique story. She and her husband recently returned from Grenada where they lived for several years while he went to medical school. During that time, she decided to get rid of her debt, and even managed to turn her side hustle into a full-time job. The timing couldn’t be better as she just became a new Mom to twins this past weekend! Congratulations Cat! You can follow Cat on twitter and learn more about her at Budget Blonde.
Michelle at Making Sense of Cents is probably known as the Queen of Side Hustles. Like Cat, she moved to full-time self-employment this year too. She has one of the strongest work ethics I’ve seen and shares lots of great tips for those looking to earn additional side income. You can follow Michelle on twitter and learn more about her at Making Sense of Cents.
