The original and still the best, if you want to simplify your life then read every article on this site.
This is a great resource for personal financial advice, guides to financial freedom, and introductions to passive investing. Everyone should have a basic knowledge of investing, and specifically passive index trackers. On the home page take a look at the key articles on the right hand side of the home page.
Some of my favourite articles below:
– Investing for beginners
– Why you must get out and stay out of debt
– A mortgage is money rented from a bank
The last one really makes you questions the status quo – especially living in London. People are obsessed with housing. My personal favourtite quote: “Sadly, Maslow didn’t tell us where ‘ability to hammer a nail into own wall’ or ‘can take part in house price bragging’ fitted into his pyramid. He lived in simpler times.”
UK based personal finance website.

Entitled ‘Neville’s Digital Surrogate Brain’, this site is a great resoucre of how-to articles on a wide variety of topics. Neville is an entrepreneur and runs several successful businesses – take a look at the ‘Some Articles’ on the right hand side of the page.
The inspiration for my site. Everyone should have a personal site, and this was the one that got me thinking it’s about time I set mine up.
A fantastic resource for keeping track of everything you’ve read. I am a minimalist and donated my large book collection to charity, having a virtual library really helps to declutter. It also means you can add books into the ‘to be read’ section. Plus there is a great group ‘What’s the name of that book..’, you post what you can remember and other members can help you out.
Thinking of hiring a freelancer? This is the best place to do it. Post a job, budget and time-frame then review applications at your leisure.
Front page of the internet! Reddit homepage isn’t much use, but to truly get the heart of a matter I will always google e.g. ‘Reddit – American thoughts on Trump’ or ‘Reddit – veganism debate’. The Reddit platform is a great way for people to quickly and easily state their true views on a matter.
Amazing website showing map distortion. Click ‘clear map’ at the top left and then type in a country you want to analyse. the closer you bring it to the equator, the more accurately you see a country’s actual scale. Fascinating.
Great website for several purposes:
1. Read articles for other website without distractions, i.e. just see article text not adverts or links to other articles.
2. To get past paywalls – put the article Url in the box and read for free (doesn’t work for all sites, but does for e.g. the FT). If you are regularly reading these sites then do get a subscriptions though!
