The folks at One Smart Dollar and ReadyForZero have rolled out a new campaign to those in the financial blogging community who have truly helped make a difference in people’s lives. The goal of the “Top Personal Finance Blogs of 2012” campaign is to acknowledge those who helped their readers pay down their debt, save for retirement, and invest wisely.
Sean Bryant, founder of One Smart Dollar, truly appreciates the diverse perspectives and advice offered by financial bloggers. As he writes on his blog,
“One of the greatest aspects about the personal finance community is that most of us bring a unique voice and personal experience to our blogs. Some of us have an educational background in finance or economics. Others have real life experience, like overcoming a mountain of debt. Not a day goes by in which I don’t learn something new.”
With that in mind, Sean, along with the team at ReadyForZero, have put together this contest. Over 75 personal finance blogs were nominated in the first round. Now, voting is open until February 28, 2013 and readers and bloggers may vote up to three times.
The winning blog will be the one that has proven to consistently go above and beyond the rest, in order to help improve its reader’s finances over the past year. This blog may have given readers hope that no amount of debt is too big to pay down. Or, it may have helped readers to figure out what steps to take to retire when they want to.
To honor the top personal finance blog, One Smart Dollar and ReadyForZero have teamed up to give away some great prizes to the top three blogs:
1st Place – iPad Mini
2nd Place – $100
3rd Place – $50
Additionally, the first place winner will be given the opportunity to host their own giveaway in which they can give one of their readers a $100 cash prize allowing them to pay down their debt or add to their savings.
Complete information and voting are available at One Smart Dollar’s Top Personal Finance Blogs of 2012 Page.
