Interested in becoming a successful blogger and looking for some of the best blog examples to get some inspiration?

We’ve got you covered! Welcome to the latest and greatest roundup of popular bloggers who are making waves in the blogging world.

From established bloggers who have been writing for years, to newcomers who have quickly gained an impressive following, these blog examples cover it all.

When we talk about successful and popular blogs, we aren’t talking about personal blogs that don’t make money or websites like Huffington Post, Forbes, and Buzzfeed that are backed by huge media companies.

We’re talking about blogs run by real people — average joes like you and me — that have created their own blogging space on the internet.

Many of them are highly successful bloggers and we’ve separated these out into a variety of blog niches.

Each of these blog niches has the potential to make you money if you start your blog the right way.

67 Best Blog Examples in Various Niches

Use the table of contents below to jump to any specific type of blog examples you want to see.

Finance Blog Examples

Our first category of blog examples is related to finance, money, and investing. These successful blogs can help you save money, make, money investment money, and more.

1. Making Sense of Cents

Michelle Schroeder-Gardner launched her successful blog, Making Sense of Cents, to help her improve her own finances.

With her blog, she was able to keep track of her progress and paid nearly $40k in student loans off in just seven months.

She used to work in the financial services industry, and now she educates readers how to make money online, save the money they earn, and even how to invest for the future.

Her website has since become one of the most popular personal finance blogs on the internet.

You can also find Michelle very active on social media, sharing photos of her travel around the world on Instagram.

2. Dollar Sprout

screenshot of Dollar Sprout blog

Co-founders Jeff Proctor and Ben Huber launched Dollar Sprout with the number one goal of helping readers to improve their financial lives.

The two were friends for a long time prior to starting their website. They both even went to the same college.

Jeff and Ben shared a passion for personal finance, so it made sense that their blog would be in that niche.

They want to make your financial journey easy and practical while being completely transparent about how their own website makes money.

3. Good Financial Cents

Good Financial Cents blog

Blogger Jeff Rose launched Good Financial Cents with the mission of inspiring people to take charge of their money and make “cents” of their financial future.

He is a Certified Financial Planner and was already testing ways of becoming financially independent before launching his blog. 

His blog simply gave him an avenue to share all he was learning and also gave him an excuse to test other avenues for growing his income.

The catalyst for him to change course from 9 to 5 financial planner to financial teacher and blogger was meeting a couple nearing retirement age that didn’t have enough money to live on.

He immediately thought — “I don’t want to be them.”

He knows that topics of money, especially when it comes to debt, can be overwhelming to a person, and he wants everyone to know that there is a light at the end of the proverbial tunnel.

Jeff believes it’s never too late to take control of your money, and that is what he teaches on his own blog.

4. Busy Budgeter

Busy Budgeter website

Rosemarie Groner considers herself to be the virtual best friend of those that want to save money and earn more money.

What sets her aside from the other blog examples is that she had a super typical-average-joe job before she started blogging: a state trooper!

But what she really wanted was to be a stay-at-home mom and open a daycare, and she knew that blogging could help her create the life of her dreams.

On her website, Busy Budgeter, readers can learn all her secrets for how to make the most of their current income while working towards gaining financial freedom in their lives.

Though you’ll find some blog posts about getting organized, the goal of the blog is simple – “Find ways in every aspect of your daily life to pinch pennies, and take back control of your money story.”

5. SeedTime

screenshot of Seedtime website

Bob Lotich launched Seedtime in 2007, and has since had over 50,000,000 people visit his website.

When he first launched, his website was actually his way of sharing financial lessons from the Bible with friends and family. The original title of the site was ChristianPF – Christian Personal Finance.

The turning point from hobby to full-time blogger: It was only after getting laid off from his job in financial services he felt called to write full-time. 

The mission of the blog, now known by its new name SeedTime, is to help people win at life when it comes to money.

The website now has an entire team producing content for it, and they all want you to get out of debt, make and save more money, get started with investing, start and stick to a budget, and give generously.

SeedTime educates readers on the lessons most people never learned in school about money, and they run money experiments to share the lessons they continue to learn.

6. Get Rich Slowly

Get Rich Slowly website

While it’s safe to say most people want to get rich quickly, people actually earning wealth know that there are no shortcuts.

Blogger J.D. Roth started Get Rich Slowly in 2006 to document his personal journey of digging himself out of debt.

One really interesting fact that sets this blog aside from other great blog examples is that J.D. actually retired from his blog in 2012 but then bought it back in October 2017.

J.D. says his website is for anyone who craves greater financial freedom.

The reason he’s one of the most popular blogs in the personal finance world is because of his tell-it-like-it-is writing.

7. Afford Anything

Paula Pant says you can afford anything, but not everything.

Her successful blog, Afford Anything, focuses on how to make smarter decisions about money, time, and life, and aligning daily behavior and habits with the lifestyle you want the most.

8. Millennial Money Man

Millenial Money Man website

Bobby Hoyt is a former high school band director turned personal finance blogger that managed to pay off $40k in student loans in 18 months.

Through his journey of paying that debt off, he became passionate about the world of personal finance.

After a career in industrial engineering, Suzi quit to be a stay-at-home mom. 

Like many others, she had dreams of creating an online system of income that would allow her to STAY at home with her kiddos. She turned to blogging as her creative outlet.

Meg Collins is the founder of the successful blog, Lucie’s List, the 450,000-subscriber blog that calls itself the survival guide for new moms.

When Meg became pregnant with her first daughter Lucie, she had no idea what she was doing.

The website was created as her way to tell others the “secrets” no one told her about pregnancy, preparing for having a baby, and motherhood postpartum.

In short, she created a parenting blog that she wished existed when she was a clueless mother-to-be, and then a new mom.

12. The Mommyhood Chronicles

The Mommyhood Chronicles blog

Melissa Pezza is the founder and blogger at The Mommyhood Chronicles.

She started her blog simply because she enjoyed writing about parenthood, and wanted to share her tales with other new and soon-to-be mothers.

In addition to writing articles about raising a family, she shares recipes, reviews of products, hosts giveaways, and even adds some travel blog posts to the mix.

This is also a great blog example of a blogger who also earns money working part-time… as a dentist!

13. Twins Mommy

screenshot of Twins Mommy website

Blogger Elna Cain launched Twins Mommy after having her twins in 2014. She wanted to be a stay-at-home mom and was freelancing to make money from home.

When she launched the blog the goal was simple – connect with other work-from-home and stay-at-home moms.

Lo and behold, the blog began generating income once she started affiliate marketing, and then she created a course teaching moms how to get traffic to their mom blogs.

While Twins Mommy features how to be a stay-at-home mom making money, she has another niche blog about pregnancy and motherhood at Smart Mom Ideas.

But this was never just some hobby blog for these two. They started their blog with the intention of turning it into a full-time business.

Jenna’s focus is on new parents and parents with young children because when she got pregnant with her first child, she says there were a million questions that needed answering.

Her blog aims to answer those questions for new moms and moms-to-be.

To her, launching a tech blog for moms was the perfect platform to dispense advice that would help assist parents in navigating the ever-changing world of technology.

She’s a former teacher, technology specialist, and trained school administrator for a large DC Metro area school system and loves sharing technology and educational resources for today’s families.

What makes their story a little unique and different from other blog examples is that Holly started earning most of her income first from freelance writing.

Holly earned over $200,000 writing for other websites while also bringing in some income from her blog.

These bloggers also have two kids and still travel the world. #family goals

screenshot of Nomadic Matt's website

Imagine traveling the world on just $50 a day.

That’s precisely what Nomadic Matt writes about on his travel blog and in his New York Times bestselling book.

His in-depth reporting proves that you can save money on travel and that the biggest thing holding most people back from travel is their mindset.

18. Adventurous Kate

screenshot of the Adventurous Kate blog

What we love about Adventurous Kate is that at age 26 she quit her job and decided to just start traveling pretty much non-stop.

She didn’t even wait until she had someone to go with. She boldly stepped out as a solo traveler to 82 countries and all seven continents.

Then, she started writing about her experiences, went on some press trips, kept writing, and created a career for herself.

Kate is now based in NY, but she still travels and has been called one of Forbes’ Top 10 Travel Influencers.

19. Uncornered Market

Bloggers Daniel Noll and Audrey Scott are the husband-and-wife storytelling team behind the successful blog, Uncornered Market.

They saved up for a 12 to 18-month trip, and then they left their home and jobs in San Francisco with six suitcases, and a one-way ticket to Prague, Czech Republic.

The blog at first served as their personal online scrapbook to share where they had been, and where they were going next. It was only later they learned how to fully monetize their hobby blog, and turn it into a full-time business.

They earn money not just from affiliate sales and ad netowrks, but also through freelance work, Tourism Development and Marketing Advisory, and speaking engagements.

Her blog is part travel tales, part lifestyle travel tips, and jam-packed with information about how to travel cheaper than you might think is possible.

21. The Blonde Abroad

screenshot of the Blonde Abroad website

Founded by Kiersten Rich, The Blonde Abroad is self-proclaimed as the go-to website for solo and female travel around the world– for all women, by women.

What we love about this blog is that Keirsten took a broad subject of travel, and honed in on the niche of solo female travel.

A large niche gives you a chance at a larger target audience, but narrowing it down is what creates a more loyal fanbase of blog readers that LOVE your content and ultimately turn into customers.

Kiersten traveled for years before she decided to start a blog after all of the stories she heard from other travelers who were making an income online.

22. Migrationology

screenshot of the Migrationtology website

Mark Wiens created Migrationology to be a place where the passion for travel and food meet.

Mark believes that enjoying authentic local food around the world is the best place to meet, interact with, and get to know people.

We think Mark’s blog is one of the most authentic blog examples on this list!

Inspired by Nomadic Matt, he started his own blog, One Step 4Ward, and over the course of the next several years he earned a million bucks from it and several other projects.

Johnny says that blogging changed the game for him and finally gave him the freedom he always dreamed of.

screenshot of the Smart Passive Income website

The brainchild of blogger Pat Flynn, Smart Passive Income teaches people how to make money in their sleep by starting their own blog or business.

He’s the first to admit though, and we wholeheartedly agree, that there is generally still a great deal of work involved to make “passive income.”

Pat’s first website was actually an online educational blog that he created to help him study for and pass an exam. 

The exam he passed was for a job that ultimately laid him off, and so he repurposed it into a study guide people could purchase.

He began yielding passive income from that study guide, and people wanted to know how he was making money. Smart Passive Income was his way to answer all the questions and teach others how they too could earn passively.

Through his lessons on systems and processes, automation with software, outsourcing, and more, Pat helps people all over the world make more money online.

His blog is one of the most successful business blog examples on this list.

Entrepreneur on Fire website
