Being a good investor is all about education. There are so many facets to investing, that one person or blog just doesn't have everything. In fact, you can spend years and years researching investing topics, and there will still be things to learn or stones left to turn. That's why it's important to turn to the best investing blogs.
This is the eighth edition of the best investing blogs to follow. We started this list to put together a single resource of amazing investors and their blogs - and over time that list has changed and evolved.
So, if you want to continue to learn and read about interesting investment ideas, follow the investing blogs on this list. While they might not all be professional investors (although some are and make a living from it), they all write about their experiences and share their knowledge.
Get your bookmarks ready, here are the best investing blogs of 2023. At the end of the post, we also include a round-up of all the investing blogs we could find.

He typically provides daily links to articles and blog posts about investing and financial markets. The posts cover a broad range of topics, including stocks, bonds, commodities, and real estate.

A Wealth of Common Sense
Ben Carlson does a great job explaining really complex investment stuff in a simple way. He doesn't get too caught up in this hot trend or that, but he uses real life examples to highlight bigger, more important concepts. Be blogs almost everyday, and the articles are pretty good length. Check it out if you want some macro level insights. You also will probably enjoy his investing podcast, Animal Spirits.

Blair's blog is one of the newer ones on this list, and we love it because it's also one of the few in-depth investing blogs written by a woman. And we need more women investment bloggers (they outperform the market). Plus, she has a lot more actionable content for the average investor on her website, which we appreciate.

Collaborative Fund Blog
Morgan has been a journalist in the investing space for years, recently published a book called The Psychology of Money, and writes at excellent blog at The Collaborative Fund. While you might find his writing in a lot of places, I enjoy these works the most. He touches on a lot of the psychological aspects of money and wealth in a way you won't find elsewhere.

Crossing Wall Street
Eddy is the founder of Crossing Wall Street, a very market and stock centric blog where he shares his insights on the market and individual companies. He is traditionally a buy and hold investor, which seems to be getting rarer and rarer these days. He has also beaten the S&P500 by 72% over the last 15 years. Check out his stuff!

Dividend Growth Investor
Dividend Growth Investor has been a staple of the dividend and investing community for years. He brings the data and analytics to dividend investing, and has a sharp/smart presence on twitter. He is a long term buy and hold investor, so what you're going to find is fundamental analysis of well known dividend-paying companies.

Don’t Quit Your Day Job (DQYDJ)
Don’t Quit Your Day Job (DQYDJ) is another site that I started follow last year, specifically because of the awesome macro-economic insight. DQYDJ is much more technical than any other site on this best investment blog list, and it’s much more macro-economic focused, but it provides a ton of great insights that are relevant to investors everywhere. Furthermore, they put together their own economic calculators and showcase how they made them and what data they used. Amazing!

Todd Tresidder is the founder of Financial Mentor, where he is a financial coach that helps people figure out their financial lives and invest for the future.

His goal is to help people almost from a behavior finance perspective, with some common sense reality thrown in. Check it out - he covers 80% investing and 20% personal finance.

Sam from the Financial Samurai is another ex-Wall Street guy that writes about personal finance and investing. Sam has some of the most unique articles on the web - all incredibly thoughtful and well written. Everything he publishes not only informs, but creates a conversation on what is likely one of the most engaged investing blogs online as well. Not all of his articles are investing related, but many are. His articles also tend to go deeper and more complex than most.

Nerd's Eye View
Michael Kitce's site is self described as commentary on financial planning, but as a consumer and investor, I find a ton of knowledge from his insights on how the system works (and doesn't work) to your advantage. He doesn't just cover investing, but his insights into the latest on government regulations concerning your investment vehicles (like IRAs) has been incredibly helpful over time.
He also only wears blue shirts!

Mike Piper is one of the more well-known investing bloggers, who is now a published author several times over. He writes a lot of practical investing-focused personal finance articles, with a focus around diversification, reducing expenses and fees, and ignoring the media…funny coming from a blogger, but very valid none-the-less. Mike is also a CPA, and continually highlights that investing doesn’t have to be complicated.

The Big Picture
I discovered Barry Ritholtz's blog seven years ago, and I have been reading it weekly ever since. He posts multiple times a day, so there is always something to read. I love his combination of investing insight and general commentary. Barry is a professional money manager who has been blogging since 2003 and writing for even longer than that. He basically shares his thoughts on the market and the economy, and anything else that’s on his mind. I find it very easy to read, yet very interesting at the same time. Plus, his articles are on the shorter side (on average), which is reader-friendly.

The Reformed Broker
Josh has a fun blog (and Twitter account), where he shares his market insights, and insights on pretty much everything that crosses his mind. That's what makes following Josh Brown so interesting - the guy is a pro-investor and is on every major financial news network at least once a week. Yet he blogs, and is interesting - just check out my favorite post from this year below!

The Simple Path To Wealth
Jim Collins is a mix of half investment blogger, half financial independence blogger, with a good mix of everything else thrown into the middle. He's very much "simple" in terms of keeping your investment strategy simple, but I think that's an important reminder for most people these days.
You might also enjoy Jim Collins' recent talk at Google.

The White Coat Investor
Jim Dahle has a blog focused on investing and issues facing doctors and other high net worth individuals. While that seems pretty niche, the topics he covers really apply to most investors and anybody who invests and has student loan debt (another big area facing doctors). What I love about Jim's site is that he isn't afraid to cover topics in detail - and some of his articles are very in-depth.
