Hey everyone,

I am looking to find a couple of good regular reads since I have a bit more time on my hands now.
So what are your favorite blogs that you always go back to? Not restricted to finance only, political commentaries, philosophy, lifestyle, health, watches, pens etc. can also be included.

Mr Money Mustache- Developing the frugality mindset. Makes you rethink using money as the sole source of fun/self-worth.

Quora- Lots of smart people answer good questions. You have to curate it yourself else you get a ton of indians posting/answering clickbaity questions.

Less Wrong- Bunch of quants trying to make sense of the world.

Parisian Gentleman- Pretentious Europeans describing rich people fashion. Obviously full of great advice.

Quora is a great one, lots of different opinions without pathetic online beefing.

Absolute truths don't exist... celebrated opinions do.

Quora is incredible, lots of successful finance and political professionals on there. Though you have to be sure to follow the right topics and people or you will end up seeing 100's of answers from "Life Coaches" about how to unlock the secrets of life, wealth and happiness throughout the power of heavy breathing

What are your thoughts on Less Wrong? From what I have read online it seems to be liked by a few and mocked by others.

Jun 20, 2018

More of a forum, but if you have any interest in running letsrun.com is an amazing place

  1. Stratechery - tech focused
  2. Of Dollars and Data
  3. The Brooklyn Investor - is not updated very often anymore
  4. Market Folly --> I like the "what we are reading" section for articles while traveling

Naked Capitalism. Very smart lefties giving contrary perspectives on finance and politics. The woman who runs it used to work at Goldman and McKinsey.

They eviscerated the economics of Uber. Very smart people. Does get a little fringy on the lefties but they do have some good analysis.

Backer of modern monetary policy which I think has flaws.

BiggerPockets seems to be a pretty good real estate blog/forum. I will be leveraging it more as I am acquiring my first property at the moment.

Jun 22, 2018

You have to really dig through bigger pockets for the useful information. Seems almost every thread is commented on by a realtor looking for business and several wannabe big shotz investors/wholesalers.

When I picked up my first few properties I did reference the site for some of my needs; 50/50 with getting them answered by searching.

I do a lot on Quora.com -- love the content and the questions. Tons of great minds in VC, Tech, SaaS, Startups, Sales, Finance, Consulting. I've made a pretty good show in terms of answers and questions and it's helped open many doors.

A couple more great sites/blogs:
