Hello everyone! Whilst we’d absolutely love you to read The Financial Wilderness on a daily basis, there’s actually a huge amount of great UK Personal Finance blogs and websites out there. As a result, here’s my guide to the best UK Personal Finance Blogs in 2023.
In part, I’m writing this because I wanted to thank the UK Personal Finance Community (in particular UK Money Bloggers) for all their help. I knew plenty about finance when I set up The Financial Wilderness, but not so much about blogging. I was expecting to find everyone very competitive – to my surprise everyone was great!
So it’s a real pleasure to feature a range of writing from others in here. Some of these blogs have different niches to mine, so I’ve asked the owners of each UK personal finance blog I’m featuring to give a little summary of how they’d describe themselves.
