Within the past couple of days I was notified that Bible Money Matters was nominated and was one of the finalists in the “Best Religious Finance Blog” category of the Plutus Awards. I'm humbled and gratified that someone enjoyed the site enough to nominate us. Before we get too far though, we should clarify – what on earth are the Plutus Awards?
The Plutus Awards are like the Oscars of the personal finance blog world. They honor the best and the brightest of the year in a variety of categories. They have categories for everything from “Blog of the Year” to the “Lifetime Achievement Awards”.
So who was Plutus?
In ancient Greek mythology, Plutus was the god of wealth. Much like wealth itself, Plutus was blind, offering his virtues without regard for the virtuosity or merit of the recipient. He was lame but winged, leaving much more quickly than he could arrive.
I'm proud to say that I actually did the logo and badge graphics for the Plutus Awards site for Flexo over at Consumerism Commentary, who is the mastermind behind the awards. If you need a logo too, head over to my logo design site Logos For Websites

Christian Personal Finance was one of the inspirations for me to start my own blog, and Bob is a great guy. Matt at Debt Free Adventure is one of my good blogging friends and colleagues. Craig at Money Help For Christians and Jason at Redeeming Riches both write for this site, and I am grateful for both of their contributions.
