Copy of Copy of Copy of Copy of rejection

The say February is the month of love, so I can’t think of a better moment than this. Today, my fellow financially frustrated people, Broke Today Rich Tomorrow is sharing the love!

Why? Because there is plenty of it to go around!

It is about time that we acknowledge the people that have supported this blog, inspired me personally and above all, set an example of greatness and success in the online community.

That is why, today I am going to be sharing with you a few of my favourite blogs and my reasons as to why you should check them out.

However, before I start, there is something I must mention. The following 9 blogs all have one thing in common: they are great blogs.

But what exactly makes a great blog?

It is amazing content?

Is the feel, look and aesthetics?

Is it the number of followers it has?

Yes, yes and maybe a little, because let’s be real, we all need an audience to read our stuff. However, for me personally, things are a little bit different. As a reader, in my eyes a blog is only as great as its author. Why?

Because a great blog is all about connection!

In order for me to fall in love with the blog, I must first fall in love with the writer. Whether it is their inspiring story, their amazing personality or just the way they think, a great blog is all about an author’s ability to make me feel connected. Connected to them, their insight but above all, their blog posts.

I love finding a new blog and upon reading it the first time, feeling like I already know the author. That’s how I know I’ve stumbled upon a great blog!

But, enough about me! Today is all about sharing the love, so without further ado, here are 9 great blogs you should follow and why:

  1. Blog:
    My favourite post: Starting Your Career – Expectations Vs Reality

    Okay first of all, if Paolo isn’t the nicest guy you’ve ever met online, you’re lying! He’s honestly the sweetest blogger I know, plus boy can he write! Picking a favourite post of his blog was difficult, with a very close second coming in here. The thing I love about Paolo’s blog is that it is full of great advice based on real life experience, travel guides and self-improvement tips. Plus his Instagram feed always makes me hungry!

They’ve paid off their house, build up their financial independence and managed to retire early! If this isn’t literally living the dream, I don’t know what is.
    Another reason I love this blog is just the sheer honesty in the writing. These guys tell it like it is and they don’t try to sugar coat anything. They are open about their experiences, their mistakes and the lessons they have learned. Not only that, they share openly about how they achieved early retirement and tips about how you could too. This one is a must to check out!

  1. Sometimes I question my blogging existence, but then I see this….and wow, it really makes my day! I’m not always sure of my purpose (even in mid-life one can wonder!), but if I can inspire even just one other person to feel empowered to invest in real estate…well, that is truly rewarding to me! So thank you Corinne! And now I am off to view some stunning hamsters 🙂
