The Ultimate List of Blogger Net Worths

Do you like seeing other people’s money? Here’s an [updated] collection of net worth totals from fellow personal finance bloggers. **Check it out**

My favorite part about the personal finance community is how *open* everyone is with their money. They’re not ashamed to list any and all debts they have, and of course they’re not too afraid to post up their savings either ๐Ÿ˜‰

But the part that inspires me the most is when bloggers share their net worths. Call me a voyeur, but there’s something so captivating about watching people’s money grow (and decline) as the months tick by. It’s just as inspiring to watch them go UP, as it is when they go down – if only to show these bloggers are just as human as the rest of us.

[UPDATE: Check out this cool analysis fellow blogger Mark did on all these net worth numbers here – including graphs. Pretty cool: Why 185 Bloggers Are Sharing Their Net Worth]

So I thought I’d start tracking these updates to help inspire you guys as well. I’ll be updating this list every month, and I encourage you to follow along the ranges that most relate to your own personal situations. This will help give you an overall sense of what others are doing to reach their goals too, which, let’s face it, is to make as much money as possible ๐Ÿ™‚ I like to skip ahead to some of the big boys on the list as well to see how they got to where they are. Here we go!

Things to keep in perspective:

  • Everyone has different ages above
  • Some are calculating their family’s net worth vs. their own
  • Some are more anonymous than others, so they may leave out things
  • Some include their houses, cars, even personal effects, while others ignore them all – even retirement accounts
  • People live all over the place (and their cost of living is thus also all over the place)
  • Everyone is in different stages of their lives

FYI: For those not familiar with calculating your net worth, the basic equation is the total of your assets (savings, investments property, etc) minus the total of your Liabilities (debts, loans, etc). The number left standing is your net worth. There are a handful of gray areas you’ll see people discussing ’til the cows come home, but ultimately it’s YOUR number so you track it however you wish. It’s meant to give you an overall picture of how your finances are doing to keep you motivated and on track. If you’re not tracking it yet, do start! (You don’t have to tell anyone about it, unlike this post here ;))

Resources to help you track your net worth:

  • CNN Net Worth Calculator — A calculator that, umm… tells you your net worth. Which you can then compare to the average household median of $100,894 $68,828.
  • PersonalCapital.com (free) — Recommended and LOVED by tons of people. Shows snapshot of all your accounts in one place – with a focus on investments.
  • Mint.com (free) — Attach your accounts and it’ll spit you out your worth, not to mention help keep track of all your income/expenses easily.
  • My financial “snapshot” spreadsheet (free) — This is what I personally use for both my net worth and my budget. I like to manually keep track for better accountability.
  • A pen and paper (almost free) — If you don’t like online stuff, go old school!
  • NetWorthShare.com —ย  A new (free) way to track your net worth via graphs by a guy who got tired of using NetWorthIQ.com when they stop maintaining it (and as it got overrun with spam). You’ll see some other finance bloggers using it already as well.

If you’re a blogger and want your net worth included here, shoot me a note and I’ll add you up ๐Ÿ™‚ I usually like to include everyone in this type of stuff (bloggers AND non-bloggers), but the point is to learn what, and how, others are doing with tracking their worth, so we need to be able to link to the page it’s listed on with details. If you’re a non-blogger but have a post written up and updated somewhere, do let us know and will happily include you!

Also consider attending this year’s financial blogger conference too! Such a great way to learn and network and just have an overall kick-ass time with your fellow money lovers/biz builders. You get a chance to hangout with me – J. Money – too ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here’s a master list of the TOP financial bloggers in general too, powered by my boy Jeremy at ModestMoney.com. If you’re not already on it, sign up! My goal is to eventually have all their net worths listed here – at least those who share it…

Hope you guys find this helpful!

UPDATE: If you’re thinking of listing your own net worth on your site, please think about all the pros and cons before doing so first. I love a net worth more than anyone, but it can be different blogging anonymously than not. It may not be smart for everyone.

No problem brotha, you just do your thing. You can always track %’s instead of hard numbers too, if you really wanted to put it all out there without putting it ALL out there, if you know what I’m saying.

An interesting range of numbers. And I agree that we all do it a bit differently. My tracking was always with an eye toward independence. The day the net worth was enough so 4% covered current spending was the target.
The key thing is that the house doesn’t count in that net worth, but the mortgage still does. If $40K is enough to retire, you need $1M in investments and can’t count the house, unless of course you plan to cash it all out and rent. The 1% er for instance, has an enviable balance sheet, but my math would show his real net worth at $630K. And of course, the kid’s college fund doesn’t appear in my numbers. No I’m not sharing. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Haha… You’re one of THOSE types of people, eh? ๐Ÿ™‚

I love it though. We all have our own reasons to track our worth, and what it entails. It’s fun hearing other people’s point of views – thanks for stopping in my man.

I love this! I shared mine on Consumerism Commentary but haven’t done any updates on my own blog. In fact, there’s a whole series over there called “Naked with Cash” where they follow six people and update their net worths over the course of a year.

Thanks for sharing J!

Very, very interesting to check out. I’m proud to be in the top four of the list. We might get the most improved award! When we started out blogging, nearly eight years ago, our net worth was at $303k. That means we’ve more than tripled our net worth in the last 7.5 years of marriage, while also both paying for masters degrees in the process. Even the optimist in me would have had a hard time predicting that we would have seen such a rise. Note that we also saw decline during this time, so you have to learn to manage the ups and downs of net worth goals.

Thanks to all the bloggers out there willing to share the nitty gritty! I definitely remember getting criticized early on for being so open about our finances.

Miel (from DINKs Finance)

Glad you like it, Miel! You bring up a lot of great points too. It’s all a learning experience, and once you figure out “the game” it’s (semi) smooth sailing from that point forward.

Congrats on all of yours, and James’, success! $2 Mil is next, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thanks J. Money! I love reading about others’ net worth, too! I think the more transparent we are about money, the less of a taboo subject it becomes.

Thanks for sharing! I’m number 1! However, I haven’t updated my net worth in a month and January was rough. It has gone down a bit, but still should claim the top spot. I’ll update it soon.

Yeah, it can get weird with family/friends read this stuff unfortunately. I wish it weren’t the case, but you gotta play your best w/ the rules given, eh?

(And agreed w/ the bloggers who’ve sold – but you won’t find any of them publicly anymore ;))

I can’t speak for the others, but I personally keep our cars in there since I use our net worth as a current “snapshot” of what everything’s worth on any given day. So, if for some (crazy) reason I wanted to liquidate everything tomorrow, that gives me a good look at what to expect. I use low values on KBB since I’d sell them ourselves and get close to those numbers. Same with other stuff, although obviously there would be tax/penalty implications on the retirement accounts, and fees for realtor, etc, etc… But I’m not hardcore enough to track all that ๐Ÿ˜‰ Nor would I want to, haha.. It’s just an overall nice general picture of our main assets and accounts which I like… I know some who don’t even include their house!

Right, I can see that.

I personally try to keep net worth more on the liquid/investments side.
But, calculating in other things give a more accurate picture of the entire situation.

I suppose different calculations are useful in different situations.

-Derek

Personally, I keep those details out of equation since I focus on investable assets (house is the only exception). My car is worth somewhere around $400 and that number might drastically change if I fill it up with gas. My wife has some nice diamonds, and I have some gold coins kicking around – but unless I sell all of it, the value of these items is irrelevant to me (and she will kill me if I propose selling her jewelery).

I guess it’s a personal choice. I’ve seen people include their life insurance policy amount in net worth – that’s just ridiculous to be honest.

Once ours dropped below 2% or so of our net worth we dropped them off-it was basically a rounding error at that point. Otherwise we try to follow “GAAP-ish” accounting principals; the cars are an asset that is bought so we can make more money (travel to jobs that require a commute) and are depreciated over time.

Seems like someone needs to read the Millionaire Next Door again ๐Ÿ˜‰

No plans to separate out the worths – gonna keep this nice and simple. Those interested can click through and keep it in perspective while they’re reading through the details.

What a great idea. This can be a super helpful resources for readers trying to find bloggers of similar financial backgrounds. Thanks for including me in the list ๐Ÿ˜€ Hey look, I’m right dab in the middle (^__-)

I got them all from published articles on each of the bloggers’ sites (meaning they made it public themselves), or I got an email on the side requesting to be included ๐Ÿ™‚

On a side note, if anyone listed here wishes to be taken down at any point, happy to do so. Just give me a shout.

I’ve always been a little curious about what PF list would look like. It would be neat to see everybody’s yearly income and expenses as well….of course we probably calculate those differently too.

I haven’t put my NW out there to the dollar (heck, it changes every day so I’m not sure I want it to become the focus of my blog), but the investable assets (which will throw off my retirement income) are comfortably above a million. I do not add in things like the house, cars, etc. The point of my blog is to examine early retirement, and express my surprise over how hard it actually is to go from FI to RE, even if it was your initial goal… I also really enjoy PF and blogging ๐Ÿ™‚

Pretty new to the blogging aspect of the group, but have lurked for quite a while. I think Bogleheads came first, then Early-Retirement.org. I went expat right after a point when all of my financial plans could have been scuppered. I’d be happy to forward you a PM of my net worth, but I think the main focus of PF should be the date you brought, not the one you’re with ๐Ÿ™‚

You should list the age(s) next to each person, I’d love to see that data point (if people are willing).

I won’t be submitting mine until I convince my wife to make ours public ๐Ÿ˜‰

That WOULD be cool! And yes, please do check w/ the wife ๐Ÿ™‚ Publicly displaying it isn’t for everyone (my wife isn’t the biggest fast), and especially so if you’re not anonymous. But of course we here would LOVE to see if it you do end up pulling the trigger! So don’t be a stranger ๐Ÿ˜‰

I think I have a whole different paradigm on the whole issue. I have never been the least bit shy to share my financial information with the world. When I bought my house last year, I had no qualms telling people how much it cost or how much my mortgage is. In fact, I was proud that I didn’t buy a super-expensive place and I was really proud of the rate and structure of my mortgage.

Actually, the issues I have with sharing are more about how they are perceived. I don’t want to be perceived as uppity or bragging. My hope is that my journey inspires others who (like you said in your intro on this post) fall into the same general financial situation that I do. To see that you started sharing yours right about where I am now, and to see how far you’ve come in just 6 years is incredibly inspiring to me.

When I look at these other net worth numbers, I’m not comparing myself to them, but their data helps me in my attempts to figure out realistic goals for myself. I think it’s a great thing and I think more people should share. I am nowhere near the top of this list, but I feel no inferiority about it – I am motivated by it!

I like the idea of tracking portfolio value but it is quite a variable since folks assets in different ways: some include house which can potentially skew the value of portfolio value by even by 50% or more. But, it does give bragging rights ๐Ÿ™‚ . Keep up the good work!

J $, thanks again for putting me on the list of richest personal finance bloggers in the world! At #3, I’m feeling like a member of some exclusive club. But I know there’s some stiff competition nipping at my heels! Bring it on, fellow wealth builders!

Great list. always fun to see how other spend, save, invest and live on budgets. I wonder if I should list my whole financial picture. For now I share my dividend investments. Thanks for sharing.

It’s not for everyone, but it does help keep you accountable and help your audience really engage and inspired too. If you end up running with it let me know and I’ll add you into it ๐Ÿ™‚

Crazy indeed! Only started skimming it (bookmarked for later when I’m back on computer), and so far so interesting ๐Ÿ™‚ Good for you for putting it out there – this is why blogs are AWESOME!!

I can’t speak for everyone, but there are certainly things to keep in mind when publishing your true numbers. Mainly, the fact that friends and family can come across it (along with employers, colleagues, strangers, etc), so depending on how anonymous you are it may affect how you feel about it ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve been doing it for over 6 years and love being able to share it with everyone, but honestly don’t know if I could do it (or if my wife would let me!) if I weren’t anonymous. So definitely go with how comfortable you are at the end of the day. It’s fun and fascinating to share – especially for your readers, and to help build a community – but it’s not the end of the world if you don’t too.

Thank you for the advice. Helpful to have this perspective. Not sure if we’ll publish our full net worth just yet, but I decided to dip a proverbial toe in by enumerating our monthly expenses. Thanks again!

J. I wondered if you think it might be cool to add a few codes to the net worth figures to show a bit more info. For example a (*D) if the person / blogger has debt. Also *R if they are retired. Or *DF if they are debt free. What do you think?

I think it’s a damn good idea indeed ๐Ÿ™‚ Only problem is that it would take quite a bit of time to research it all and then tag them with all the numbers of variables (M (mortgage), NM (no mortgage), S (single), M (married), BFGF (boyfriend, girlfriend), K (kids), DINKS (Dual Income No Kids)), and on and on and on ๐Ÿ˜‰

Might have to wait until v2.0 for that one, but I do like where your head is at. Feel free to pass over all ideas as they hit ya!

Wow – that’s a lot of high net-worthers up there! I do NOT blog anonymously, so my wife is really hesitant about posting our net worth online because we have so many friends and family that read our blog…

You should check out the wordpress plugin TablePress. It allows you to create a sortable table with many columns. You could add in age and other factors and people could sort the table to their hearts content ๐Ÿ™‚

Oooh really? That plugin sounds awesome! Thanks for the rec. my man… And your wife and my wife would get along pretty well – she gets nervous when I do it and our friends DON’T read my blog! Haha… and I’m anonymous! ๐Ÿ™‚

I think I am ready to share ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope it will be cool to any readers as I am starting young (in college), and have possibly over 50 years to grow my net worth ๐Ÿ™‚

I agree with others that this is a great resource and it definitely will be an extra motivator to be more frugal going forward! I think it is a great way to cheer on other bloggers too!

A great article, very inspiring to see the variety of net worths from everyone at different stages of life.

I’ve been tracking mine for over a year, and have just started blogging anonymously sharing it with the world – I’m currently at ยฃ266k (I’m London based)

I think Break 50 is really #1 on your list if you convert pounds to dollars. Lol. Also, many people use networthiq.com to share their net worth anonymously.
My recommendation is that if people want all the other “taggings” of single vs household, age, income, it’s best to create a facility for every blogger to update themselves to facilitate the maintenance.

Very cool list! I do not share my net worth, but my blog is focused more in real estate than personal finance. Real estate has been very good to me the last few years increasing my net worth by $600,000 from just 11 rental property purchases.

J. Money! Thank you for adding me to your list (although I should add that I was previously posting under Ms. Debt Emergency and now have a new blog)! My net worth has improved over $37,000 since February of this year. I owe it in large part to the personal finance community which has taught me how to make it happen! Thanks again for adding my blog to the list!!

Very cool! Congrats on all your success so far – that’s bad ass. (And thx for the note – just took down the old one now that we have your new one listed here). The PF community is awesome – I Agree!

I enjoy reading about the comparative net worths of all the bloggers and others, but while I am careful about keeping detailed financial records of just about everything else, I am pretty casual about my net worth. However, I did check it recently and it stands at just over $1 million, all of it in savings and other investable assets. I did not tally things like cars, etc., and I agree with the financial experts who say you shouldn’t include equity on your primary residence because you just have to sell it and find somewhere else to live if you wanted to tap the portion of your “net worth.”

In any event, I retired three years ago at 65 and am living comfortably on SS, some modest defined-benefit pensions and a monthly distribution from my IRA that amounts to less than 3 percent of the current total.

What I wonder is, am I wrong NOT to feel the need to relentlessly track my net worth? Is this just something that is beneficial to people who are looking to retire or become otherwise financially independent at an early age? Tell me what I’m missing.

Congrats on being retired and having a healthy net worth ๐Ÿ™‚

As far as your feelings towards tracking it, I think that’s perfectly normal. It really just depends on what motivates you and what your goals are in life. Most of us are trying to be in your position of retiring so it’s top of mind and we love thinking/talking about money ๐Ÿ™‚ If you don’t enjoy it much and/or it doesn’t affect your normal life, then go with whatever you’re comfortable with.

I can’t speak for the others, but I track this stuff (and then put it online) because it holds me accountable and I find helps me grow it faster than when I wasn’t doing it. I also believe it’s important for people in general to talk more openly about money as we all have to deal with it and it’s such a taboo topic, so I tend to promote this stuff more and get people to understand they’re not alone and we’re a safe community here to discuss such things.

Very interesting to see other bloggers’ net worth. Haven’t published ours yet and I think I will ever do that. Has anyone had bad experience publishing their net worth? Especially those that blog with their real names?

You pose a great question, my friend… I know of some who’ve shut down their blogs in general when certain people (aka bosses) have caught on to them, but not sure I’ve heard of getting in trouble or something bad happening w/ displaying their net worth. It’s entirely possible though and why I personally caution people who also put out their real names to double and triple think it over… As much as it’s interesting and helps motivate our community, you always have to protect yourself first from the psychos out there… and there are a lot of them online ๐Ÿ™

Thanks for adding me.

To add to the discussion.

– In my case it’s the couple number but my wife account for 3% of it. Usually I don’t count her money but I wanted to be a paper millionaire. Also, it’s canadian currency.
– I do count my house. It’s an investment because it provide free rent for the familly. No house would mean rent so less cashflow.
– I don’t count car, I view them as consummable.

My close family know about the blog but I prefer to blog annonymously for the general public. I wouldn’t want a sicko to target my familly to try and make easy money.

Good information here – I like your reasoning for the house ๐Ÿ™‚ The question I always have for people who don’t include it is what they do with their mortgage(s)? That would heavily skew your net worth and seem inbalanced to me – then again I use my net worth as a snapshot of my entire situation so omitting it wouldn’t make sense. It’s interesting to see how everyone does things.

Yup, I do my best to anyways… Sometimes I don’t catch them, and others the blogger hasn’t updated a recent one. But for the most part I try to keep them up to date as I find it all kinds of interesting ๐Ÿ™‚

How did I make the net worth list here? Or how do we actually calculate our net worth?

I just hard coded/typed the list up above for now (there is a wordpress plugin I heard works well though for this type of stuff I still need to look into), but as for Net Worth I just personally use an excel spreadsheet I created years ago:

https://www.budgetsaresexy.com/budgets/j_budget_template.xls

In the top middle you’ll find the net worth area (The rest is for budgeting so I can have everything in one spot)

Here’s an even simpler one I put together for all my money coaching clients to get them started – you might find it better/quicker:

https://budgetsaresexy.com/files/Money-Snapshot.xlsx

J. Money,

Very cool list. We’ll have to consider joining – although my brother and I have heavily weighed the pros and cons of going public with specifics as to net worth. That said, transparency is great and this was a fantastic idea.

– Ryan from GRB

Glad you like it, Ryan (and brother) ๐Ÿ™‚

I agree – plenty of pros and cons on both sides here. Gotta ask yourself what you’re trying to get out of it and then go from there. Transparency can do wonders for a blog and growing/connecting with an audience, but it can have different effects when it plays into your “real world” too. You can always divulge more later but it’s hard to take it back once it’s out there ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’ve read through most comments and I like how people keep asking has anyone experienced cons.

Your answer for yourself is that you are anonymous. But what do you mean by that exactly. Just asking because well you do come out in videos or picture. Can’t remember what it was exactly but point is your face is out there. So what do you mean by anonymous? Just that none of your family/friends knows you blog?

Also how often do you recycle people out. I was considering doing a net worth post as a year wrap up but I wouldn’t be doing it monthly. Maybe not at all after the first time. Not sure yet. Do I have to provide a monthly update to be part of the club? And after how much time do you remove people?

You know since net worth does change over time.

I consider myself semi-anonymous now because I don’t go under my real name (hint: it’s not really J. Money) nor tell people where I live/etc. I do have some friends and family that read the blog, but it’s more about keeping a little privacy between the online world and the real world. There’s quite a few psychos out there as you can imagine…

As for being a part of the club here, it’s totally up to you how often you’d like to update it ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll add it up once/if you start, and then whenever there’s updates that I see (or you tell me) I’ll go and update the list again for ya… Some people do it every month, others do it quarterly, and then some just stop doing it altogether. The list isn’t an exact science by any means, but more of a way to get a good idea of what people are doing with their money and how they’re reaching the worths they are. It’s all about motivation/tips really.

Well thats alright, hopefully my index funds help curb some of the 20k or so that i lost in stock. When are you planning on updating?

Hi Jmoney I like not just seeing this list but reading the updates

Just thought I should let you know that quietly saving and div saver are both showing 404 error messages. For 2 days now.

Also you have Malachi money on there twice.

Thank you so much!!! I messed up the link for quietly saving (now fixed!), deleted the duplicate of Malachi, and then Div Saver’s site is now gone (so I took down)… Seems like the larger this list gets the harder it is for me to stay on top of 24/7 – so this was very helpful ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for taking the time to let me know. I’m glad you’re enjoying the list!

So I love a lot of these blogs but find it interesting that my wife and I have net worth that places us easily in first place on this list. Zero help from anyone in getting there, just lots of smart decisions, good careers and being debt adverse. Thinking I may start a blog sometime soon…

So very glad to have stumbled across this. I have been encouraged by others to start my own personal finance blog. Though it looks like I have a lot more material to read because i have gotten some very great ideas from many names on this list already. I have figured out my “FU Boss” number and am steadily working towards it!

These are some very interesting numbers. I started my blog 9 months ago, but wasn’t fully dedicated to it. It started as a way to make extra income, but with that mindset, I lost interest quickly because it seemed more like a job. Now I am spending more time on it blogging about a subject that I love and just hoping to make some connections and help others along the way. If I happen to make enough money with it to quit my full time job in the future, that would be a dream come true, but I’m not making that my sole reason for doing it. Thanks so much or all you do J. Money. I really enjoy your blog!

YES! Love your new outlook *SO MUCH* better. A lot of people see that we make $$ online and just want to jump in and do that, but as you saw there are plentyyyyy of other ways to make money (and faster!) than a blog, even IF you’re successful off the gate. Doing it for the love of a topic or hobby is a much better approach – so glad you’re back and having more fun now ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for adding me to the Millionaire challenge J. Money, would love to go on this list as well.

What’s the process for updating our numbers on here as they change each month, message you?

You’re already on our list to add here next time we update it ๐Ÿ™‚

The perfect world is if you email me letting me know it’s been updated just so we don’t accidentally miss it, but we also try and track it on consistently on our side too. Glad you want to be a part of it!

We initially just added ourselves to this list because why not (it was after all just yet another personal finance blog)? But after just two updates and seeing us (and others) move up the ladder is really cool and inspirational! When I saw we were #25 this morning, I was like woo hoo! Thanks J.Money for putting this together, much appreciated!

Yayyyyy! Even more inspirational knowing that we’ve probably added a good 20 new blogs to the list since you’ve been on it too ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s to that money keep on growing!

Stupid currency exchange. I’m currently #89 on the list, and if our currency was still worth what it was last summer I’d be closer to #80!!!!

Although that being said, the 36% of my investments that are in USD are performing fabulously (artificially anyway)

Seeing everyone;s posts on here inspired me to create a blog and track my net worth. Really appreciate what all of you are doing here and I just had my site added to the list.

Lets keep these things growing!!!

J$,

Question — are you keeping track of these things on a monthly basis?

I ask because I just updated mine and yet, given this list it seems almost infeasible to account for everyone’s sporadic updates.

FM

Yeah, I’ve got a kick-ass team over here helping with it (shout out to Cait!) and we do our best to update everyone’s once a month or so. It used to be longer when I was doing it by myself ๐Ÿ™‚ We track most people’s feeds through RSS so we can easily find them, but sometimes we have to go over the list and see who we’ve missed… You can always email me directly though to make sure we see it 100% – no problem at all.

Wish I did or could! I just received a couple of travel reimbursements and my federal tax return. I now have since moved onto a different job which requires less of a travel and offers no overtime so, I believe I am going to be scrapping by for the next couple of months till I go back to my old job. Thanks for updating my numbers!

This pretty neat. Feel free to add us down. Current net worth will always be published on in the sidebar. As of our August 2015 update, we are at $107,116.17.

I’ve looked at the history of each blogger on this list and wish there was a blog that was more realistic. Most people on this list make over 150K and own houses valued at 500K so they can bank 20-30K per month. Not realistic for the rest of the US making 70K between 3 jobs and tons of necessary expenses (student loans, utilities, mortgages, insurance). Not trying to be rude, just wish there was a blog that I could follow that represents a true US demographic.

Hah! There is no true demographic – we’re all different ages and people and earners/debtors/savers in different stages of life with our own desired lifestyles ๐Ÿ™‚ You should be able to find some close to your situation though as collectively we have millions of readers across the list. So someone is being helped by them!

Random thought: any thought on signifying which net worth updates are reflected in each update to this page? I have noticed that more than a few of these are never updated…

Hey Chris – good idea for sure, but trying to keep the page looking as clean and simple as possible. We do our best to update them on a fairly regular basis, but some bloggers share on random schedules too (some are monthly, quarterly, bi-yearly, and yearly) so every few months we’ll go down the entire list and poke around more in-depth. Just getting harder to do as the list builds ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi hi, i started in January 2015, so 5880 British pounds up to date. Now i will check the list to see if is any with less money than me. (I know, i only compete with myself, sure! )

Thanks so much for adding me to the list! What’s funny is I had so many reservations of disclosing my net worth. In fact I didn’t want to know my net worth for a long time. Knowing is power and so glad to see that there are others like me. I just can’t wait to see when my net worth has a lot more zeros….Lol.

I love this list!

I also wanted to let you know, it looks like the Net Worth for Malachi Money hasn’t been updated in a bit. And we are no longer in the negative! ๐Ÿ˜› We are now at $21,104.14 (yay for buying a home and getting instant equity!

Thanks for adding me to the list! Just a minor correction – we should be converted to CDN currency (unfortunately… as this will drop our net worth significantly. Thank you, super weak Canadian dollar!)

Is it possible to remove people who don’t blog/don’t update their net worth’s anymore? For example, I Am 1 Percent. I believe that site was bought by someone else and that new person does not list their net worth and hasn’t for over a year.

Ugh, yeah… looks like they’re posting up trash sponsored posts now on that blog… That’s a shame. Will take down for sure, thx for the heads up! (We do our best to track ’em all but list getting pretty big over the years so some slip through for sure… I’m fine with those who don’t update as regularly as others, but if they’re super old and/or have stopped blogging/sold in general yeah – we should prune)

They can! And they will!! We need as many people sharing their experiences with $$ as we an online. People resonate with different people for all kinds of reasons – LGBT or not. And I hope you have a lot of fun while doing it ๐Ÿ™‚

I love seeing everyone’s net worth. I’ve started tracking mine on my site as well. Thanks for creating this site J Money! Is there a way to see the progression over time? (I guess I can check on each of their sites but it would be cool to see changes, although I’m sure that would be a lot more work. I’d love to be included on this list.

that would be cool actually!

no current plans for that, but let me make a note and see what we can do as time goes on… we def. plan on revamping stuff here soon ๐Ÿ™‚

in meantime, we’ll get you up on the list yourself! great blog name!

I may have to claim that top spot as soon as I leave my FT job next week. Hopefully it will not look too much over the top… I keep saying I should, but maybe this year…

Property values are way up. Loans are way down. The savings have been north of $200K for a few years.

Hey J!

Thanks for the add! #105 – WOOT!! You’ve given me new motivation to crack into the double digit spots. ๐Ÿ™‚ This is such a great idea to bring all the $$ bloggers together in one spot…it’s also about to be a huge time suck for me as I go down the rabbit hole which is the internet to visit a bunch of these sites!!

As in much of life, there is always someone in front of you and/or behind you and I’m so happy to be in such great company. ๐Ÿ™‚

And we’re very happy to have you here with us too ๐Ÿ™‚

I love your mantra btw that a million dollars starts with a penny – was just on your blog earlier checking it out! I’m enjoying it!

Awesome list. Just started blogging but been investing for a long time. Haven’t listed a net worth but probably will once a year. Will do end of the month updates monthly on portfolio. Have to quit procrastinating and get the log in to my retirement account. Won’t crack top 100 without my retirement account.

Cool! Welcome to the community ๐Ÿ™‚ We’ll add ya up to the tracker here shortly.

(And totally get being anonymous! No shame in that at all… Ironically enough, you’re able to be more transparent that way :))

cool- congrats!! you’re about to pass me! ๐Ÿ™‚

we’ll update the link to it shortly…. be sure to link your new blog posts going over the details in it too so we can all see how you’re reaching it!

Ahhhh very valid.

Any way to hedge against it? So if/when it does crash you won’t be *as* burned and can wait it out until it’s back to humming again? (I’m sure you’ve thought about all the options since it’s your life/money so no need to respond, I’m just thinking out loud here :))

That is totally awesome, a great inspiration and so neatly presented which makes my geeky heart happy.

Meanwhile, we reached $370k and right on target for our potential retirement in 11 years. lol. Baby steps.

Hope everyone closes the year strong and we get ready for 2017!

@No Nonsense Landlord – holy crap man, look at you!! I knew you were balling, but wow ๐Ÿ™‚ Let me know if you think you’ll be keeping it around and we’ll add you up on the tracker if so! You’ll only be at the #1 slot though, not sure if that’s good enough for you? Haha…

We’re actually getting REALLY close! You’ll prob surpass me here in the next month or so as I’ve been focusing on website growth vs $$ haha…. but hopefully that will mean more $$ in the future? ๐Ÿ™‚

Finding this list a few months ago was so motivating, to know so many others are out there at different stages of the FI journey.

The list has been amazing for me, and helped me make the decision to start my own financial independence blog and join the journey. Thank you!

It would be awesome if you could add my blog to the list. My current net worth is $976,311

Thanks again Jay.

rock on! love that your core is with Vanguard too ๐Ÿ™‚ that’s the part I’M so thankful for in the community – finally getting my head on straight with investing!

We’ll add you up on the list here shortly. Congrats on your progress so far – that’s huge!

J Money – Thanks so much for taking the time to add my blog to your list. I have used your list as a resource and am excited to now have my own blog listed!

One Request: You listed the wrong net worth. I think my poor editing skills drew your eye to the $740K number in my table in my post, which is our net worth from a year ago. Our most updated net worth from the start of 2017 is $933,683. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hopefully the next time I ask for an update, we’ll be squarely into 7 digits! Thanks again for taking the time to add The Divide by Zero to your list!

Cheers,
Zero

Got it updated in our new Blog Directory we’re about to launch! We decided to merge the Tracker into it to make it even more interesting/juicy/helpful (since it’s tracking tons of other data too) so keep your eye open for it! Will be hitting the streets soon! ๐Ÿ™‚
