- Why we like it. HerMoney by personal finance columnist Jean Chatzky regularly posts straightforward and honest content geared toward empowering women to better their finances.

6. Think Save Retire
- Why we like it. Think Save Retire with 30-year-old retirees Courtney and Steve Adcock does a good job of presenting actionable tips alongside personal growth stories.
As the name might suggest, Think Save Retire focuses on personal finance content specific to retirement. In many cases, early retirement. It also features interviews with other finance bloggers and advice for digital nomads.
Let’s face it, January sucks. You might feel like you’re struggling to get motivated to work. BUT that doesn’t always mean you’re ready to retire…#FinancialIndependenceRetireEarly #SmartMoney #MoneyBloghttps://t.co/soF0SUUtPP

9. Hey Berna
- Why we like it. Bernadette Anat approaches personal finance with humor and wit that makes it easier to stay hyped about budgeting.
Posts are a bit sparing on Berna’s Twitter feed, but she has a strong focus on the importance of diversity and representation in personal finance — as she says, “You can get money advice from someone who looks and lives like you.” This, combined with her other focus — making money fun — creates little gifts of both understanding and playfulness. A follow will also help you stay on top of Berna’s event announcements and podcasts she’s on.
