Lastly,…. if you need even more links to read, J$ has created the most amazing Personal Finance Blog Directory that you can sort by various categories: country, net worth, category, age, and gender! Here are the stats from that directory:

  • 56% of the bloggers are male (36% are female and 8% are teams)
  • 49% of bloggers are in their 30s (21% are in their 20s, 17% in 40s and 8% in their 50s & 60s)
  • Of those who disclosed their race, 82% are white, 9% are Asian, 4% are African American, and 3% are Hispanic or Latin
  • 37% of all bloggers have kids (of which 54% of households have dual incomes, and 46% single)
  • 34% of all bloggers are DINKs (Dual Income No Kids) and 21% SINKs (Single Income No Kids)
  • 4% of all bloggers tracked are RETIRED 🙂
  • 23% of them (154) publicly disclose their net worths (ranging from -$532,304 to +$5,000,000)
  • We’re blogging from 6 of the 7 total continents (where you at, Antarctica bloggers?)
  • We span 20 different countries, including Romania, Guatemala, South Africa and Israel!
  • The most commonly held profession so far are those in IT (80 bloggers), followed by Engineers (40), with a lot less in financially-related jobs than you’d think?
  • And we have at least one blogger who is an opera singer, flight attendant, model, physicist, patent examiner, nuclear contractor, firefighter (2, actually!), librarian, and costume designer.

    I’ve had Maui Jim sunglasses for years. No buyers remorse! The company will repair them if they’re damaged. I love that!

    My clothing choices are ‘uniform’ in the sense that it’s ALWAYS pants + top. I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, I don’t wear skirts as Im in a depot, and there’s little way to wear a skirt and be PPE/safe. So yeah, only really hot days will I break out a skirt, so it’s a handful of time in two years. Jackets/coats/topper are less of a requirement for a lot of the year, due to it being more temperate here in Aust. Still, interesting to read about Adina’s process.

    I once read an Antartica blogger – but it wasn’t about money! Just about the experience of being there etc
