“Some bloggers have an educational background in finance or economics. Others have real life experience, like overcoming a mountain of debt,” said Sean Bryant, founder of One Smart Dollar. “Not a day goes by in which I don’t learn something new, and we feel that now’s the time to ultimately recognize and reward those making waves in this blogging community,” he added.
The voting process will be based on nominations from bloggers and their loyal readers. All they have to do is fill out the following form to submit their vote:
Once the voting process is complete, the top three blogs will be rewarded with prizes including an iPad Mini for first place, $100 cash prize for second place, and $50 cash prize for third place. 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.
For those who frequently visit these blogs for advice, they often admire and recognize the unique qualities each blog brings to the table. One of the greatest aspects of the personal finance blogging community is the fact that these bloggers bring their own voice and personal experience to each educational article and post they create.
"We have been so impressed with the wide range of knowledge and creativity demonstrated by personal finance bloggers this year and we're excited to work with One Smart Dollar on this effort to recognize some of the best blogs of 2012,” said Ben Feldman, Content Strategist for ReadyForZero. “Our goal of helping people pay off debt as quickly and efficiently as possible is very much aligned with the goal of financial bloggers to educate and inform people on these topics,” he added.
This campaign ultimately recognizes the fact that the personal finance community is extremely supportive for one another. This includes a collective effort in supporting different causes, including the debt movement (http://debtmovement.com/
